2 double bedrooms, living room, dining kitchen & shower room.
Traditional stone-built, two bedroom, semi-detached property situated by the Town Hall right in the centre of Lerwick, within walking distance of Commercial Street, North Ness Business Park, Mareel cinema & music venue, Shetland Museum & the Toll Clock.
In addition to two large double bedrooms both enjoying views across to Bressay, the double glazed accommodation also includes a living room with solid-fuel stove, a spacious kitchen with room for a table & chairs and integral appliances, and a shower room.
Heating is presently provided by electric storage / panel heaters plus a solid-fuel fire in the living room, although the property is on the waiting list for a District Heating connection. Externally the property benefits from an enclosed garden area with lawn / drying green & garden shed.
Some updating would be beneficial which is reflected in the price, but nonetheless the property offers good-sized two bedroom accommodation with some period feaures remaining, in this great, very central location.

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but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.
