• 3 double bedrooms • living room • kitchen/ diner • office / playroom • bathroom
Attractive, three bedroom, ground floor flat on the north side of Lerwick, enjoying fine open views across the harbour area to Bressay.
Forming part of a traditional detached building housing just two flats, this double glazed property has been extensively refurbished in recent years including re-lining and insulating most of the rooms, and the fitting of the latest Dimplex 'Quantum' storage heaters.
In addition to three double bedrooms, the well-proportioned accommodation also includes a bay-windowed living room enjoying the view, a further room presently used as an office / playroom, a large kitchen with extensive fitted units and space for a table & chairs, and a modern family bathroom.
Externally the flat has garden areas to the front and side including a large paved patio outside the front door.
Access to the property is via a front door which opens to a vestibule with wood effect vinyl flooring and doors to the living room, a good-sized bright room with a large bay window taking full advantage of the views of the harbour area, and a second additional room presently used as an office / play room, but has been used as a dining area. Both rooms have laminate flooring and further doors to a carpeted hallway along the rear of the house with doors to the remaining bedroom accommodation and a built-in cupboard housing the 'Megaflo' water tank.
The large south-facing kitchen / diner has two windows allowing in plenty of natural light, space for a table & chairs in the centre, and attractive fitted units in a cream finish set off by wood block effect worktops. The units provide ample cupboard & worktop space and include an integral hob with concealed cooker hood over, a double oven, plumbing for a dishwasher & washing machine, space for a tumble dryer (appliances not included), and a ceramic sink. A fridge / freezer housed in a recess will be included in the sale although no warranties will be given. The floor is laid with tile effect laminate flooring and the wood-clad ceiling has recessed spotlighting.
The family bathroom comprises a white three piece suite, the bath having a wet wall-lined shower area and 'monsoon' shower fitting over. Heating is provided by a heated towel rail / radiator or a wall mounted fan heater. Stone effect vinyl flooring is laid.
All three bedrooms are carpeted, the master bedroom like the living room having a bay window enjoying the views over the harbour. The other two bedrooms, again doubles, both face the rear of the property.

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.
