Benefitting from up to five bedrooms, 6 Ackrigarth is a well-presented semi-detached property set in a neatly kept garden with off-street parking for a couple of cars, on the south side of Lerwick.

Benefiting from uPVC double glazed windows and doors and oil-fired central heating, the accommodation comprises a bright good-sized living room, attractively fitted kitchen, dining room or fifth bedroom, two further bedrooms (one presently used as an office), a bathroom and handy separate WC on the ground floor, plus two further bedrooms upstairs.

Externally there are lawned garden areas to the front and rear, a west-facing decked seating area, and a large lockable garden shed.

Great family home close to Sound primary school and within walking distance of Anderson High School, Clickmin lesiure centre, Tesco's, and the beach at Sands of Sound.


Entry to the property is via a double glazed front door which opens to a hallway laid with 'Quick-Step' laminate flooring, the passage leading straight on past a handy separate toilet with white WC & wash hand basin and tile effect laminate flooring, to two bedrooms in an extension to the rear of the house, a further hallway to the left, again laid with 'Quick-Step' flooring, leading to the kitchen, living room, a third ground floor bedroom and a bathroom.

On entering the hallway to the left a glazed door opens to an attractively fitted kitchen with ample units including an inset 1½ bowl sink and concealed cooker hood, the freestanding cooker, fridge / freezer, washing machine and dishwasher being available by separate negotiation, the east-facing window behind the sink looking out over the front garden. A shelved airing cupboard houses the hot water tank which is fed either by the central hearing boiler situated in the kitchen, or an electric immersion, whilst lighting is provided by recessed ceiling spotlights. Again the floor is laid with the same 'Quick-Step' flooring as in the hall.

Next to the kitchen, a further glazed door opens to the good-sized living room, a bright space with a wide window again facing east and overlooking the front garden. This room has a fitted carpet and a feature light fitting, heating provided by central heating radiator although the freestanding electric flame effect fire will remain, as will the fixed shelving to the right of the chimney breast.

Past the living room and accessed by another glazed door is a bedroom currently used as a dining room, the room benefiting from a westerly aspect, it too having 'Quick-Step' flooring, and there is a feature light fitting. A built-in under-stairs cupboard provides useful storage space and next to that is a bathroom comprising a white three piece suite, the bath having a wet wall lined shower area and electric shower over. Tile effect laminate flooring.

Finally the remaining ground floor accommodation comprises two further bedrooms to the rear, both carpeted and having windows facing west and looking out over the back garden, one of these rooms presently being used as a home office. At the end of the passageway a uPVC back door leads to a west-facing decked seating area and the back garden.

Upstairs and accessed via the carpeted stair which is lit by a window to the half-landing, there are two double bedrooms both with east-facing dormer windows, the principal bedroom to the right which has laminate flooring, having substantial built-in wardrobe space along one wall with fitted shelf & hanging space. Bedroom 3 is carpeted. There is access to storage space in the eaves from the landing.

Some of the furniture may be available by separate negotiation.

Property Location

Ackrigarth is situated off South Road at the very southern end of Lerwick. Turn into Ackrigarth about halfway up Sound Brae and then first right into a small cul-de-sac signposted 'Ackrigarth'; No. 6 is immediately ahead of you with the driveway to the right of the house.
