Spacious, two reception room / four bedroom detached property set in good-sized, well-stocked mature garden in the sought-after Upper Sound residential area on the south side of Lerwick just a few minutes' drive from the centre of town.

In addition to four large double bedrooms which includes a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, the 19' x 14' dual-aspect living room and a separate dining room, the family accommodation which is all on the one level, also includes a generously proportioned kitchen / dining room, separate utility room, and bathroom.

A brick paved drive provides parking for three or four cars in front of a large garage, whilst the particularly secluded back garden has a large patio area and two sheds.

Great family home – viewing highly recommended.
