Great opportunity to acquire a spacious four / five bedroom detached home with stunning views in the popular Fogralea residential area of Lerwick, conveniently located within walking distance of Anderson High School, Sound Primary School, Clickimin Leisure Centre and Tesco’s.

This fine family home comprises four double bedrooms, a spacious living room, separate dining room, kitchen, bathroom and separate shower room which have both been recently re-fitted, all on the one level.

The property benefits from a huge basement with hobby room / 5th bedroom and extensive storage space provided by a large workshop, garage and underfloor area.

The property has uPVC double-glazed windows and warm air central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler.

Ideal family home at the end of a small cul-de-sac with lots of storage space – early viewing recommended.


The property is accessed via stairs leading up to the front door, the glazed inner door opening to a large hallway with two handy storage cupboards and access to the loft.

The spacious living room enjoys fantastic elevated views over the clickimin loch & broch, the large picture window providing lots of natural light. There is potential to open up the fireplace to have an open fire although this should be tested before use. Adjoining is the separate dining room, also a good size, and the large window letting in lots of natural light. The living room is carpeted, the dining room has wood effect laminate flooring.

The large kitchen overlooks the side garden which can be accessed via the back door. The modern fitted units have white gloss doors and black worktops and include an integral hob, double oven and dishwasher. The large American style fridge / freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer are included in the sale. Terracotta tile effect vinyl flooring. Note that one ring on the hob and the grill do not work.

The bathroom and shower room have both recently been completely re-fitted, each room comprising a white suite, the wash hand basin and WC being set in a run of fitted units which provides handy storage for toiletries etc and also conceals the cistern. Grey tile effect vinyl flooring.

Finally, there are four bright and spacious double bedrooms, two to the front and two to the rear.

Stairs by the front door access the basement, a large cupboard under the stairs providing storage space. On the right is a hobby room / 5th bedroom which looks out over to the loch and has a shelved cupboard with a hanging rail. Off the hobby room is the boiler room.

On the other side of the hallway is a large workshop with access to the under floor area of the house which benefits from a concrete floor so would provide plenty of storage space although it is height restricted. A door from the workshop opens to a large garage with ‘up & over’ door.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.

We have availed ourselves of services provided by Harper Macleod of Lerwick, both in buying and selling residential property. Our needs on both these occasions were fully met and the service provided by them made our task in these circumstances, seemingly without effort.

Prior to this we had also received very helpful general advice pertaining to Shetland real estate from them. This was a tremendous benefit to us at the time.

If you are seeking cost effective, excellent real estate marketing and legal services, we would not hesitate in recommending Harper Macleod of Lerwick.
