Situated in a great, very convenient central Lerwick location within easy reach of Commercial Street and amenities, 97R St Olaf Street is an attractive, modernised top (second) floor flat which would make an ideal first time buy, ‘buy-to-let’ or handy Lerwick ‘pied-a-terre’.

The property which forms part of a detached building comprising four flats, was comprehensively renovated around eight years ago, the ‘walk-into’, double glazed accommodation comprising a bedroom, living room with two useful built-in cupboards, an attractively fitted kitchen with integral oven, hob & fridge / freezer plus a dishwasher and washing machine all included, and a modern shower room.

Laminate / tiled flooring is laid throughout.

Externally there is a shared back garden / drying green and a small shed.

All the furniture and other contents as seen at viewing are available by separate negotiation.


Entry is to the rear of the building, steps leading up to an entrance door and shared hallway serving three flats, one on the first floor, and two on the top floor, 97R being on the top floor on the right and having an entrance door with triple point locking opening to a hallway with borrowed light via a small internal window to the stairwell, and grey wood effect laminate flooring which extents throughout the whole flat except for the shower room which has a tiled floor. There are also coat hooks and a hatch with pull-down ladder which provides easy access to the shared loft space where the hot water tank is situated.

The first room on the left is the bedroom which has a Velux window with integral blackout blind. Next is the living room, this room having a dormer window to St Olaf Street and a storage heater, louvre doors opening to two large built-in cupboards which provide lots of easily accessible storage space, both having a fitted light, the one on the left also housing the electric meter etc., the one on the right having a hanging rail.

At the end of the hallway is the good-sized attractively fitted kitchen which has plenty of space for a small table & chairs and modern units in a pale blue finish set off by wood-effect worktops providing plenty of worktop and cupboard space with ‘soft close’ doors & drawers. A full range of appliances is included including an integral oven and hob with glass splash back and stainless steel cooker hood over, a concealed integrated fridge / freezer, plus a freestanding slimline dishwasher and washing machine. Inset 1½ bowl sink. There is a large window shelf by the west-facing window.

Finally the modern shower room is lined with easy clean tile effect wet wall cladding and comprises a corner shower enclosure with electric shower & glazed screen / door plus a white WC and wash hand basin set on a fitted cupboard unit providing handy storage space for toiletries etc. The floor is tiled and heating is provided by a ladder style heated towel rail. Velux window.

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 were very impressed with your professional manner and always keeping us up to date with progress.
