Three bedroom, semi-detached property set in a good-sized fenced garden on the south side of Lerwick. Benefiting from central heating provided by the Lerwick District heating system, the accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom with bath and separate shower on the ground floor, plus two further bedrooms upstairs.

Externally there are lawned garden areas to the front and rear, the large back garden comprising a lawn / drying green and two sheds.

The property would benefit from some updating which is reflected in the price, nonetheless the property offers family accommodation with the benefit of plenty of outside space and amenities including Sound Primary School, Anderson High School, Clickimin Leisure Centre, Tesco’s and the beach at Sand of Sound being within reasonable walking distance.


Entry is to the side of the property, the double glazed entrance door opening to a lobby with doors to the breakfasting kitchen and hall. The kitchen which has a window to the front of the house looking out over the front garden to the street, has fitted units including an integral oven, hob with cooker hood over, concealed integrated fridge and an inset sink, a matching fitted table providing a small dining area. There is also plumbing for a washing machine and a separate built-in shelved cupboard.

Moving on into the hall the tiled bathroom on the left comprises a white three piece suite plus a separate shower enclosure with glazed screen / door, heating being provided by a ladder style heated towel rail and wall-mounted fan heater. On the right is a generous living room, its wide picture window facing east and again looking out over the front garden, heating here being provided either by a central heating radiator or a solid-fuel stove set in a tiled fireplace surround, the recesses to either side having shelving for books etc. Lighting is provided by a centre light fitting and matching wall lights. Finally on the ground floor there is a west-facing bedroom.

The staircase which is lit by a large window to the half-landing leads up to the first floor and to two bedrooms each with a dormer window to the front of the house enjoying distant views over the Sound area generally to Bressay in the distance. The bedroom on the right has a built-in cupboard.

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.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.

Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
