A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial property currently being run as additional B&B accommodation by the current owners but which could be reinstated as a family home if desired.

The property boasts five bedrooms all with en-suite facilities together with a very spacious lounge / dining room, kitchen, toilet, utility room and sun porch.

The property is connected to the Lerwick Distict Heating Scheme and is double glazed throughout with uPVC double glazed and Velux rooflights.

There is a good-sized, attractive garden to the front and rear and a single detached garage.

Viewing is recommended to appreciate the potential and setting of this substantial property.

General Information

This property is currently being used as ancilliary accommodation to the owner's main B&B business next door which is also for sale (Breiview Guest House). It could therefore potentially be run as a standalone B&B by the new owner with all the furniture and fittings being included in the sale, or it could revert back to use as a family dwellinghouse.

The house was extensively re-furbished in 2008 when it was taken back to its timber frame and all services were renewed. New windows were fitted and a new sun porch. The internal configuration of the property was altered to maximise use as a B&B business. A similar theme runs through all of the bedrooms with attractive neutral decor & laminate flooring. Full description below.

The property sits on the south side of Lerwick in a small cul-de-sac of privately owned properties just a short stroll from the popular Sands of Sound beach.

Tesco's supermarket, Sound Service Station, the Clickimin Leisure Centre, Sound School and the new Anderson High School are all within walking distance.

The property could be available with all the furniture and fittings if required.

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 were very impressed with your professional manner and always keeping us up to date with progress.
