Overview

Enjoying an open westerly aspect, 58 North Lochside is conveniently situated just across the road from the Clickimin leisure centre and Anderson High School and also within walking distance of both supermarkets, the Toll Clock and hospital. There is also a children's play park immediately behind the house.

The accommodation in this end-terraced property which has oil-fired central heating, comprises a dual aspect living / dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, plus two bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. There is also a substantial floored and lined loft space. A driveway provides off-street parking for three cars and there are garden areas to the front and rear, the rear garden being a good-size.

The roof was re-slated about eight years ago but otherwise the property requires updating which is reflected in the price.

Accommodation

The front door to the property opens to a small hallway with doors to the living room and two handy built-in cupboards, the larger one providing space for coats and general storage and also extending under the stairs to house the oil-fired central heating boiler.

The living / dining room enjoys a dual aspect with windows to the front and rear of the house, varnished floorboards being a feature. There is a tiled fireplace surround housing a solid-fuel stove although this has not been used since the oil-fired boiler was installed. It may be possible to open up the fireplace again however some work would be required and no guarantees can be given.

Off the living room is the kitchen with north-facing window, door to the back garden and fitted units including a sink, space for a gas cooker and plumbing for a washing machine. A further recess provides space for a fridge / freezer etc with small built-in cupboard to one side. Appliances not included.

Back in the hallway, the stair which is lit by windows at the top and bottom, leads up to the first floor landing and doors to the two double bedrooms and shower room, a hatch providing access to the substantial, floored and lined loft which spans the full width of the house and is lit by two Velux windows. It provides a huge amount of storage space, sliding panels to either side providing access to additional storage in the eaves. The floor-to-ceiling height in the middle is over 6ft making it ideal for a general hobby space perhaps.

The main bedroom is situated to the front of the house, its window enjoying a sunny westerly aspect and views over the Clickimin to the hill beyond. A large built-in wardrobe along one wall concealed by sliding mirror doors provides plenty of hanging & shelf space, further storage being provided to the opposite wall by a built-in cupboard over the stairs with open shelf to one side for a TV etc.

The second room, also a double, is situated to the rear and looks out over the back garden to the play park. A built-in shelved airing cupboard houses the hot water tank.

Finally the wet wall lined shower room comprises a shower enclosure with electric shower, WC and wash hand basin.

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 have availed ourselves of services provided by Harper Macleod of Lerwick, both in buying and selling residential property. Our needs on both these occasions were fully met and the service provided by them made our task in these circumstances, seemingly without effort.

Prior to this we had also received very helpful general advice pertaining to Shetland real estate from them. This was a tremendous benefit to us at the time.

If you are seeking cost effective, excellent real estate marketing and legal services, we would not hesitate in recommending Harper Macleod of Lerwick.
