2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen / diner & bathroom.
Ideal for a first time buyer or downsizer, 6 Park Wynd is a two bedroom, single storey, semi-detached property conveniently situated near the Lerwick - Sumburgh bus route in an area enjoying a good range of local amenities including a shop & post office, school and even a public swimming pool, all within reasonable walking distance. Lerwick (approximately 13 miles) is easily accessible by car or by bus.
The accommodation in this double glazed property which has electric storage / panel heating, includes a good-sized south-facing living room, modern kitchen / diner with useful pantry cupboard off, two bedrooms plus a bathroom with bath and electric shower over.
The property benefits from very well-established, fenced garden areas to the front and rear which have been extensively planted, particularly the main garden area which lies to the south side of the house and provides a very pleasant and secluded outdoor space particularly in the summer months.
Park Wynd is conveniently situated in the centre of the village of Sandwick which lies approximately mid-way between Lerwick to the North (13 miles), and Sumburgh and the airport to the south. The village has a good range of amenities most of which are within reasonable walking distance of the house, these including the local shop & post office at Stove, the school and the South Mainland swimming pool. There is also a private nursery /after-school club, youth & community centre, social club & public hall. Sandsayre Pier at Leebitton is the departure point for boat trips to the island of Mousa and its famous broch.
The location of the property means it is particularly suited to anyone not wishing to be reliant upon a car as the Lerwick-Sumburgh bus route runs through Sandwick stopping at 'Central' Crossroads, a short walk from the house.
The property is double glazed and heated by electric storage / panel heaters. The under-floor area of the house was insulated in 2017.
Entry to the property is via a path which leads around to the rear of the house where a gate opens to a neatly kept garden area enclosed by a sturdy wooden fence with a path to the front door with small lawn to one side and paved area to the other, all bordered by established trees and shrubs.
Vestibule / Hall
The front door opens to a vestibule with coat hooks and inner door to a hall with built-in shelved airing cupboard housing the hot water tank, carpet tiles, a storage heater and hatch to the loft space. On the left is a modern kitchen / diner with open aspect to the rear and a walk-in pantry cupboard, ahead is the bright living room and the main bedroom, both south-facing, whilst to the right is the second bedroom and a bathroom.

In addition to the neatly kept garden area outside the front door, the property also includes the additional fenced area on the other side of the path, which is again surrounded by a mature hedge & planting, and has a drying line and small wooden shed.
The main garden area lies to the south side of the house, with access to the west side of house. This area of the garden, which is mainly grassed, is unusually well planted with mature trees and established shrubbery creating a particularly secluded garden area enclosed by a sturdy wooden fence to the roadside and by post & wire fencing elsewhere.
There is plenty of public parking outside the house.
