In addition to the three bedrooms, the single store accommodation also comprises a good-sized, triple aspect living / dining room, kitchen and shower room. Extensive built-in cupboards in the hall provide ample storage space and heating is by electric storage / panel heaters.

General Information

5 Glebe Park is situated about 1½ miles from the ferry terminal on the island of Bressay which lies off the east coast of Shetland just across Bressay Sound from Lerwick.

The island which has a population of around 360 is served by a quick five minute ro-ro ferry service which runs to the Esplanade right in the centre of Lerwick, the service generally running hourly throughout the day.

Local amenities on Bressay itself include the shop & post office just ½ mile from the house, plus a community hall, heritage centre & marina, although the frequent ferry service means amenities in the town are relatively easily accessible. During the summer months it is possible to access the neighbouring uninhabited island of Noss at the southern end of Bressay, an important national nature reserve notable for its bird life.

5 Glebe Park is double glazed and heated by electric storage / panel heaters. The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, the curtains & blinds, and light fittings. The free-standing white goods are available by separate negotiation.
