Conveniently situated within easy reach of a range of amenities in Brae just two miles away, ‘Lonabrak’ is a spacious three bedroom detached house enjoying a westerly aspect and fine views over Mangaster Voe. Lerwick approximately 25 miles.

Set in around ¼ acre, the double glazed accommodation comprises a large living room enjoying the views, a very spacious, 20’ kitchen / dining room, attractively finished family bathroom with bath, separate shower and built-in TV, three good-sized double bedrooms including a main bedroom with en-suite, a utility room and large walk-in cloakroom. Central heating is provided by an electric boiler.

There is plenty of scope for working from home with an office in the house itself, or there is also a separate 15’ x 12’ block-built, lined and insulated outbuilding which could be used as an office, gym or den.

Outside there is an attached garage, ample parking, a lawn along the west side of the house, plus a substantial deck which provides a great place to sit and enjoy the fine views.

General Information

‘Lonabrak’ is situated on the east side of Mangaster Voe just a couple of miles to the north of Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland area of Shetland and the location of the area’s main services and amenities which are conveniently within easy reach, these including a High School providing nursery, primary & secondary schooling, a leisure centre / swimming pool, health centre (including dental suite) and a Co-op mini-supermarket. There are also a couple of other local shops including a small DIY store, a garage, fish & chip shop, takeaway, hotel and bar.

The location of the property means it is well placed for access to oil and other related industries at Sullom Voe oil terminal, and also the Shetland Gas Plant. Lerwick is still within easy commuting distance.

Further information on Brae and also the Northmavine area can be found at:

The property is fully double glazed and has central heating supplied by Heatrae Sadia Amptec electric boiler which also supplies the pressurised hot water tank, both housed in the garage. Connections for a gas-fired boiler remain should a purchaser want to install an alternative heating source.

The sale will include all fixed floor coverings, blinds and light fittings. The curtains can be included if required.


A large lobby provides the entrance to the property, a window to the side of the double glazed front door providing plenty of natural light. The flooring here is hardwearing ‘Karndean’ vinyl, the same as the hall. Most of the rest of the house has laminate flooring. To the right is a spacious utility room with a run of fitted units along one wall including a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer (appliances available by separate negotiation), with a further wall and floor unit to the wall opposite, and a clothes pulley over the central heating radiator. To the left is a handy office perfect for working from home, with window to the front of the house.

A glazed door from the porch leads on into the ‘T’-shaped hall, a door immediately to the left opening to a substantial, walk-in cloak cupboard / box room with coat hooks and fitted shelving for shoes etc. Ahead, the living room, kitchen, a family bathroom and the main bedroom are to the right, whilst to the left is a handy built-in cupboard and two further double bedrooms. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to a substantial amount of storage space in the loft which is floored down the centre.

The living room is a good-sized space, its triple window enjoying the superb views westwards over the voe, lighting being provided by recessed ceiling spotlights. Next to the living room is the spacious kitchen / dining room which boasts a huge amount of cupboard and worktop space with fitted units in a white gloss finish set off by wood block effect worktops and matching upstands, yet there is still plenty of space for a table & chairs. The units include a concealed integrated dishwasher, cooker hood and inset 1½ bowl sink. The dual-fuel range cooker and ‘American’ style fridge / freezer can be included if required. Windows look out to the north and east, and again recessed ceiling spotlighting is provided.

Moving on down the hall, there is a fabulous family bathroom with modern white four piece suite including a ‘jacuzzi’ bath with centrally mounted ‘waterfall’ tap, the built-in TV at one end being included in the sale, a shelved recess behind providing space for display etc., plus a contemporary style wash hand basin bowl set on a large wall-hung drawer unit which provides handy storage space for toiletries etc., a WC with feature wallpapering to the wall behind, and finally a corner shower. Speckled black floor tiles tie in with the wet wall lining around the bath. Mirror / light fitting over the wash hand basin, recessed ceiling spotlighting & ladder style heated towel rail.

Opposite the bathroom is the spacious main bedroom, its two windows enjoying the view westwards over the voe. Sliding mirror doors conceal a sizeable built-in wardrobe along one wall which provides plenty of space for clothes etc., and the room also benefits from an en-suite shower room with shower, wash hand basin / vanity unit set on a fitted cupboard, and a WC. The additional mirror fronted cabinets are included in the sale. Recessed ceiling spotlighting.

Finally at the end of the hall are two similarly sized, large double bedrooms, bedroom two to the right enjoying a view over the voe and having a wardrobe with sliding doors. Bedroom three is situated on the other side of the house facing east, this room having a large recess where a built-in wardrobe could be installed if required.
