• 2 double bedrooms • living room • kitchen / diner • shower room
Fabulous, very spacious two double bedroom flat situated right in the heart of Lerwick's town centre, enjoying a fantastic view over the small boat harbour area and across to Bressay.
The flat forms part of a four storey building on Commercial Street. It is fully double glazed with conservation style sash & case windows and heated by electric storage heaters.
Decorated in light neutral tones throughout it provides well-proportioned 'walk-into' accommodation with much of the original character retained. In addition to the two bedrooms which includes a substantial bay-windowed master bedroom, there is also a large living room enjoying the view of the harbor area, a good-sized kitchen / diner, shower room and hall.
The property would make a great first time buy or town centre base, or would be an ideal rental property, either for a long term let or holiday accommodation given the great location with amenities close at hand.
Entrance to the property is from Angus Closs which runs between Commercial Street and Harrison Square / The Esplanade, just to the left of 'Aurora' shop on Commercial Street, the main entrance door opening to a stair shared with one other flat.
The door to the flat opens to a long hall laid with wood laminate flooring which extends into the living room, recessed ceiling spotlighting, space for coats, a storage / convector heater and handset for the secure entry phone access. The kitchen and the main bedroom are to the right; to the left is the living room, a second bedroom and further passageway leading to the shower room.
(Approx. 5.75m x 3.7m at widest point) (18'19" x 12'2") Lovely bright room with a large window with upholstered window seat below, facing east and enjoying a great view across the small boat harbor area to the island of Bressay. Original features remain including the cornice & picture rail, and skirtings along with a fireplace surround although this is decorative only, but there is a storage / convector heater. Wood laminate flooring, satellite TV & telephone points.
(Approx. 4.5m x 2.75m) (15' x 9') Carpeted double bedroom, again with original features including cornice, picture rail & fireplace surround, with window to the side lane.
(Generally approx. 2.4m x 1.85m at widest points) (8' x 6'2") Modernised shower room with white WC and wash hand basin set in fitted unit which provides handy shelf & cupboard space and has a shaver point and large wall mirror over, plus a wet-wall lined shower enclosure with 'monsoon' shower head and a separate hand held fitting, and a glazed screen / door, the shower being fed by the pressurised water tank to one side. 'Quick-Step Uniclic' flooring & heated towel rail.
(Approx. 4.7m x 2.6m) (15'6" x 8'7") Large kitchen with space for a small table and chairs and extensive fitted units providing a substantial amount of cupboard & worktop space, the units including an integral oven & hob with cooker hood over plus an inset 1½ bowl sink and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dishwasher (latter appliance included). Tile effect vinyl flooring and recessed ceiling spotlighting supplemented by additional worktop lights. Side window.
(Approx. 6.05m x 3.35m) (19'10" x 11') Impressive, very generously proportioned carpeted master bedroom with plenty of natural light provided by a west-facing bay window overlooking Commercial Street. Again the room retains original features and there is a storage / convector heater.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.
Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
