Overview

Spacious five bedroom detached family home situated in a particularly leafy and secluded site in the popular Westerloch residential area of Lerwick on the west side of Clickimin Loch, the convenient location putting the property within easy walking distance of both Anderson High School and Sound primary school, the Clickimin Leisure Centre and Tesco's supermarket.

In addition to the five bedrooms, four doubles and a single, the double glazed accommodation which has electric storage / panel heating, also includes a large south-facing living room, separate dining room, bathroom, shower room, plus porches to the front and rear.

The house is surrounded by lawns, the size of the site providing plenty of outdoor space along with parking for two or three cars in front of the attached garage. Some updating would be beneficial which is reflected in the price but nonetheless the property offers ideal family accommodation in this attractive and sought-after location with the benefit of amenities close at hand.

Off the kitchen is a tiled rear porch / utility area, a bright space overlooking the garden with windows to the three sides, with sink with double drainer and plumbing for a washing machine.

Back in the hall, a passage leads to the remaining ground floor accommodation comprising two double bedrooms and a tiled bathroom with bath with tap / shower fitting over, WC & wash hand basin, and heated towel rail.

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.
