Situated within easy reach of the centre of Lerwick a short drive away, 4 Central Heathery Park is a four bedroom detached house set in a small cul-de-sac with views eastwards over Gulberwick generally to the sea.
Completed c.2007, this ideal family home provides single storey walk-into accommodation comprising four double bedrooms including a generous principal bedroom with en-suite shower room, a dual-aspect living room, spacious kitchen / dining room, family bathroom with bath and separate shower, and utility room. For those working from home there is a separate office.
A particular feature of the property is the amount of built-in storage space provided with several cupboards in the hall and a pull-down ladder to the loft space, built-in wardrobes to all the bedrooms, and also a large garage (with electric door). The property also benefits from underfloor central heating below the solid wood flooring which is laid throughout most of the house, the heating being provided by a ground source heat pump.
There is a good-sized grassed garden area and ample parking.
Central Heathery Park is a small cul-de-sac situated towards the south end of Gulberwick, just 4 miles from the centre of town, Gulberwick having proved a popular location in recent years particularly with families, as although all the amenities of Lerwick are just a short 5 minute drive away, the area has a semi-rural feel, the position of the house also allowing it to benefit from views over Gulberwick generally and out to sea.
Locally there is a village hall and a beach, and school transport is provided for primary and secondary education in Lerwick.
Completed in 2007, the house is of 'Scandinavian' style timber frame / timber clad construction. Windows and doors are double glazed and underfloor central heating is provided throughout supplied by a ground source heat pump in the garage which also supplies hot water.
The house is accessed by a ramp which leads to a covered porch area and the front door which opens to a lobby laid with solid oak flooring which extends throughout the whole of the house (except the bathrooms), doors leading from the lobby to the main hall, utility room and garage, a handy built-in cupboard providing space for coats etc.
The large lined and insulated garage has an 'up & over' roller shutter door with electric remote control, rear window, power & lighting, its size providing plenty of space for a car whilst still leaving plenty of room for storage / workshop use. The utility room, which has a door to the garden, has fitted floor & wall units including an inset sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer, freezer etc. (appliances not included), plus a shelved recess for boots, whilst a hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to further storage in the loft space which is floored down the centre.
Accessed via a glazed door from the lobby, the hall has yet more storage space provided by a large built-in cupboard with twin double doors. At the far end glazed doors lead to the kitchen and living room, a further passage to the right leading to the bedrooms, family bathroom and an office.
The kitchen / dining room is a large bright space with a window to the kitchen area and sliding patio doors to the dining area both enjoying the view east to the bay, with further borrowed light filtering through from the glazed double doors which lead to the adjoining living room. There is plenty of space for a table & chairs plus a further island unit with breakfasting bar for a couple of stools. Fitted units provide extensive cupboard and worktop space and feature a range of integral appliances including an inset hob with glazed splash back and cooker hood over, plus a double oven, concealed fridge / freezer and dishwasher, plus an inset 1½ bowl sink. Two centre light fittings provide artificial light.
The living room is another good-sized room accessed from the kitchen or hall, with lots of natural light thanks to a large dual-aspect window area to the east and south, again providing views of the bay and to the sea. Lighting is provided by two feature light fittings.
Continuing along the hall passage there is a family bathroom comprising a white three piece suite including a double ended bath with centrally mounted mixer tap, a wash hand basin set in a fitted vanity / cupboard unit, and a further fitted unit concealing the toilet cistern with additional storage cupboards to either side. There is also a wet-wall lined shower enclosure with glazed screen / door, and underfloor heating below the tiled floor.
Next are two north-facing double bedrooms each with a built-in wardrobe with shelf & hanging rail, a handy separate office, great for home working, with window facing west, then another double bedroom, this time facing south, again with a built-in wardrobe, and finally the principal bedroom. This generously proportioned room benefits from two built-in wardrobes providing plenty of space for clothes etc., plus an en-suite comprising a white WC and wash hand basin again set in fitted units, the sink having a wall mirror with integral spotlighting over, plus a wet-wall lined corner shower enclosure with glazed screen / door. Again there is underfloor heating below the mosaic tile effect vinyl flooring.
There is a further built-in shelved cupboard between bedrooms 3 & 4.
