Situated in the sought-after Upper Sound residential area of Lerwick and enjoying magnificent panoramic views southwards over Sound generally to the sea and Bressay in the distance, '6 Punds' is a spacious detached property with up to 7 bedrooms. The property sits in an established garden with ample parking in front of the integral garage, two decked areas, plus a recently constructed outbuilding with power & lighting that would make a great home office / hobby space or gym.
The location of the property means both primary and secondary schooling are within easy reach along with the Clickimin Leisure Centre, Tesco’s Supermarket and Sands of Sound Beach.
The main accommodation comprises five bedrooms, a living room, kitchen / dining room, two bath / shower rooms and a separate WC, and a utility room. The ground floor annex which comprises a living room, two bedrooms, a shower room and utility room / kitchen, would be ideal for a dependent relative particularly as it is on the ground floor, or could be used as guest accommodation or for teenagers. There may be potential to let out the annex although this would be subject to any necessary consents required to comply with building standards and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.
Great family home – early viewing recommended.
A double glazed porch with south-facing windows and two external doors, the second door leading to a large decked area, provides the entrance to the property, the space being attractively finished with painted 'v'-lining below a dado rail. From here two external quality doors lead to the accommodation in the main part of the house, and the two bedroomed annex. Fitted meter cupboard.
The door to the main part of the house opens to a large hall with plenty of space for coats etc., a dado rail and wood parquet effect vinyl flooring, doors leading to a carpeted double bedroom to the rear of the house with built-in wardrobe concealed by sliding mirrored doors, and a good-sized utility room with fitted cupboard units, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer (appliances not included), a clothes pulley and wood effect vinyl flooring. Off the utility room is a handy cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin, and a large, lined garage / workshop with 'up & over' garage door, side and rear double glazed windows, and back door. There is sufficient space to park a car yet still leaving plenty of room for general storage / working space. Power & lighting and 'Belfast' style sink with cold water supply. The garage also houses the central heating boiler and hot water tank.
The carpeted stair from the hall leads up to the main accommodation on the first floor, the stair being lit by a high level window and borrowed light from a glazed panel to the kitchen. Like the rest of the house the landing has pine skirtings and door surrounds etc., and a hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to a substantial amount of floored storage space in the loft which spans almost the full length of the house, further storage being provided by two built-in shelved cupboards at either end. Ahead and to the right are two double bedrooms and the kitchen. To the left are two further bedrooms, the living room and the main family bathroom.
The kitchen / dining room which is accessed via a glazed door, is a bright and spacious room, its two windows enjoying the fine elevated views southwards over Sound generally to the sea and Bressay in the distance. There is plenty of space for a table & chairs and the modern fitted kitchen includes an integral gas hob with glass splash back and cooker hood over, a double oven with warming drawer below, plus a concealed integrated dishwasher and fridge / freezer. Also inset 'Franke' 1½ bowl sink, glazed cabinets either side of the cooker, handy pull-out corner carousel, wine rack, and peninsula unit separating the kitchen from the dining area. Laminate flooring throughout. Artificial lighting is provided by spotlight fittings to the kitchen plus an additional combined light / fan unit to the dining area.
On the other side of the landing from the kitchen are two carpeted double bedrooms both situated to the rear of the house and benefiting from extensive built-in wardrobe space along one wall concealed by sliding mirrored doors. The main bedroom on the right has an en-suite shower room with wet-wall lined shower enclosure plus a WC and wash hand basin set in a fitted unit which conceals the cistern and has a mirror and integral lighting over. Vinyl flooring.
Moving on down the hall, on the left is a single bedroom, again carpeted and with a built-in wardrobe, this room enjoying the fine view south, and a large family bathroom on the right with corner Jacuzzi bath, separate wet-wall lined shower enclosure, plus a WC and wash hand basin again set in a fitted unit which provides plenty of useful storage space and also conceals the cistern, with mirror, integral lighting and a shaver point over. Vinyl flooring.
Next a glazed door opens to the generously proportioned, dual-aspect, carpeted living room, a large window to the front making the most of the fabulous views, the room also having a second window facing west. Finally at the end is another double bedroom with wardrobe recess and rear-facing window.
Back off the entrance porch downstairs, the second door opens to the annex where an 'L'-shaped hall with two built-in cupboards leads to a living / dining room, utility room / kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room, the hall being laid with wood effect vinyl flooring.
The utility room has fitted units, an integral oven & hob with concealed cooker hood over, plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included), and wood effect laminate flooring. Next is a carpeted living room with space for living and dining areas, the room enjoying a south-facing aspect, its double window looking out over the front garden. Then there are two carpeted bedrooms to the rear of the house, bedroom 6 being a double room with a large built-in wardrobe with sliding mirror doors. Bedroom 7 is a single. Finally there is a wet-wall lined shower room with electric shower, a WC and wash hand basin set in fitted units with an additional fitted dressing area with light over to the wall opposite.
