General Information

The property forms part of a purpose built four storey building comprising three floors of flats over a furniture store, the building having been completed circa 2016. The property is fully double glazed and benefits from a wet radiator central heating system supplied by a heat exchanger unit connected to the Lerwick District Heating system which also provides hot water.

A communal satellite dish is linked to each flat with connections to both bedrooms and the living room, the living room also having cabling for internet. A small monthly charge goes towards communal cleaning etc. Some of the furniture may be available by separate negotiation along with the washing machine and tumble dryer.


A main door to the east side of the building with secure entry phone access provides entry to the flats, Flat 5 being one of six flats on the first floor. The entrance door to the flat itself opens to a carpeted hall with doors to all rooms plus a handy built-in cloak cupboard with shelving and hanging rail. On the left is a useful utility room with fitted cupboard space plus a worktop with plumbing for a washing machine below and space for a tumble dryer over, the appliances being available by separate negotiation, the room also housing the District Heating unit and a fitted meter cupboard, and having wood effect vinyl flooring.

At the end of the hall is the living / dining room / kitchen, an attractive open-plan space with a large window area spanning the length of one wall including patio doors to the substantial paved balcony (approximately 40m2) which provides a great outdoor space from which to enjoy the views over the harbour area across to Bressay, the space attracting the sun in the summer months from mid to late afternoon onwards and therefore providing a great place to sit and relax in the evenings. The fitted kitchen at the other end features units in a white gloss finish set off by black granite effect worktops and stylish sage green 'metro' tiles, the units providing ample cupboard & worktop space, additional storage being providing by a further peninsular unit which neatly separates the kitchen from the dining area. There is a full range of integral appliances including an oven and hob with cooker hood over, plus a concealed fridge / freezer and dishwasher. Inset sink. There is plenty of space for a table & chairs and the living area has provision for a wall-mounted TV (appliance not included). Wood effect vinyl flooring unifies the whole space and lighting is provided by three pendant fittings.

Both carpeted double bedrooms enjoy the harbour views, the windows having blackout roller blinds. Each room has a built-in double wardrobe with shelving & hanging rail, the main bedroom also having an en-suite shower room with large shower with glazed screen / door plus a white WC & wash hand basin. The bathroom cabinets are included and wood effect vinyl flooring is laid.

Finally there is a separate bathroom with white three piece suite, the bath having a shower fitting and shower screen over. Wood effect vinyl flooring as in the en-suite.
