Overview

Unique opportunity to acquire a house site right in the heart of Lerwick’s town centre, a short stroll from shops, café’s etc. on Commercial Street and the Small Boat Harbour, with detailed planning permission already in place for a four bedroom detached home.

Designed by local architects Née Gibson, the proposed accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen / dining room, double bedroom, shower room and utility room on the ground floor, plus three further bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

The orientation of the house allows for views over the surrounding area across to Bressay, particularly from the upstairs rooms.

Servicing the site should be relatively straightforward as connections are understood to already be on the site although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

General Information

The site is situated in a great, very central Lerwick location in the Lerwick Conservation Area, a short stroll through the historic Lodberries area to shops & café’s etc. on Commercial Street and the Small Boat Harbour.

The site is bounded on the north-east and south-east sides by Leog House which has in recent years be re-developed as residential flats, and a small car park, by the footpath running between Leog Lane and Greenfield Place / Greenrig to the south-west, and by a stone dyke to Greenrig. Vehicular access is from Leog Lane, whilst a footpath down Greenrig and into Stouts Court provides a short cut to Commercial Street.

The site has detailed planning permission for a four bedroom, detached house designed by local architects Née Gibson. Details of the planning permission (Ref: 2022/074/PPF) including plans can be found on Shetland Island Council’s website at:-

The design places the house on the south-west side of the site maximising the garden area in front and also allowing for views over the surrounding properties across to Bressay particularly from the upstairs rooms. The external finish is wet-harled blockwork with additional natural larch / cedar timber boarding as a feature, all below a natural slate roof.

The well-designed accommodation is arranged over two floors, the ground floor comprising a living room, kitchen / dining room, double bedroom, shower room and utility room, the main rooms all looking out over the garden area, with three further bedrooms all with windows enjoying the view, and a bathroom upstairs.

It is assumed that services connections should be relatively straightforward as it is understood that service connections, including telephone, are situated under a manhole cover in one corner of the site however prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard by contacting the relevant utility providers directly.

Vehicular access is from the car park behind Leog House on Leog Lane.

The purchaser will be responsible for complying with all conditions noted in the planning permission.

Property location

The site is situated behind Leog House at the top of Leog Lane which runs up from Twageos Road. Vehicular access is from Leog Lane. The site can be accessed on foot from the top of Church Road via Greenfield Place / Greenrig (the site is just after the turning down to the Kveldsro Hotel), or up from the very east end of Commercial Street / Twageos Road via Stouts Court / Greenrig.

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 been very pleased with the professional service we received from Harper Macleod. In particular the sales particulars and marketing of the property.  The advice received during the sale process was extremely helpful and the conveyancing was straightforward and hassle free. Would recommend Harper Macleod.
