Situated in a great, very central Lerwick location within easy reach of amenities, 96 King Harald Street is a two double bedroom, mid-terraced property in 'walk-into' condition.

Benefiting from triple glazed uPVC windows throughout, new windows having been fitted just four years ago, the freshly decorated accommodation comprises a west-facing living room and kitchen / diner on the ground floor, plus two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and a bathroom with electric over-bath shower, upstairs. A sizeable floored loft provides storage space. Heating is by electric storage / panel heaters.

Outside there is a small low maintenance garden area to the front plus a good-sized back garden comprising a large paved patio area, lawn / drying green and garden shed. A lane to the rear of the property provides a quick shortcut to St Olaf Street & Harbour Street.

Great first time buy or rental property in a very convenient location, a convenience store being handily situated close by at the end of the street.


Access to the property is via a path from King Harald Street which leads past a small low maintenance graveled front garden area to a double glazed front door which opens to a carpeted hallway & stairs with high level fitted meter cupboard, coat hooks and a pine door to the living room. This west-facing room with double window to the street, is attractively finished with a picture rail and cornice; a fireplace surround housing an electric flame effect fire creating an attractive focal point and also providing a cosy additional heat source although there is also a 'Mylek' LCD programmable electric panel heater. Fitted carpet & satellite TV connection.

At the rear of the living room a further pine door opens to a good-sized kitchen / diner with two windows and a double glazed back door looking out over the back garden. The room which has wood laminate flooring throughout, has plenty of space for a table & chairs and the fitted units which are finished off with blue tiled splash backs include an inset 1½ bowl sink, plumbing for a washing machine which can be included in the sale if required, a concealed cooker hood and corner carousel. Storage heater.

The carpeted stair from the hallway leads up to a carpeted landing with doors to the two bedrooms, the bathroom and a useful built-in shelved cupboard. A hatch gives access to a substantial floored loft which provides a large amount of storage space. You can stand up in the centre and a Velux window provides light. There is a storage heater on the landing although a second 'Mylek' panel heater will be left for fitting by the purchaser if required.

The main bedroom is situated to the front of the house, again having a double window facing west and overlooking the street. Storage is provided by a built-in wardrobe and there is a fitted carpet. The second double bedroom is situated to the rear, the built-in wardrobe also housing the hot water tank making it a good airing facility. Heating is provided by an electric panel heater.

Finally the bathroom comprises a white three piece suite, the bath having a wet-wall lined shower area over and a 'Triton' electric shower. 'Brick' wallpapering to one wall is an attractive feature and the flooring has slate effect vinyl laid. Heated towel rail.

The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, curtains & blinds, & light fittings.

Use the 'Map', 'Satellite' & 'Hybrid' buttons to switch between an ordnance survey style road map, a satellite aerial photograph or a combination (hybrid) of the two.

(Please be aware the Google Street View was taken on the date shown. The building and surroundings may have changed since then. We always recommend you view the property personally.)

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.

Location Desired

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.
