Enjoying a westerly aspect and fantastic views over Whiteness Voe, ‘Sudragarth’ is a four bedroom single storey detached property situated in a popular rural location yet still within easy reach of Lerwick, just 10 miles away.

In addition to four bedrooms all of which have built-in wardrobe space, the accommodation also includes a spacious 23’ living / dining room, a large kitchen also with space for a table & chairs, a bathroom and separate shower room, plus a porch / utility area. The house benefits from oil-fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows.

The property sits in an above average sized plot of around 0.4 acres with parking, front lawn, large west-facing patio plus a further grassed area which provides extra outdoor space or could provide space for a conservatory or polytunnel etc., subject to consents.

The property requires some upgrading which is reflected in the price but nonetheless offers ideal family accommodation in this desirable location.

General Information

‘Sudragarth’ is situated in the attractive setting of Nesbister, a popular rural location due to its convenient location within easy reach of Lerwick just 10 miles away, but also thanks to the fine views westwards over Whiteness Voe. There is a local shop about a mile from the house on the main Westside road (just past the Nesbister / Wormadale junction), a primary school about a mile further on at Whiteness, plus a second shop with post office & fuel at Weisdale, a mile past the school. The Westside bus service to Lerwick stops at the Nesbister / Wormadale junction.

An oil-fired boiler situated in a small boiler room next to the entrance door supplies central heating radiators throughout the house, the boiler room also housing the ‘Megaflo’ water tank.

Items of furniture are available by separate negotiation.


Entry is to the side of the house, the double glazed door opening to a porch / utility area with worktop with plumbing below for a washing machine (washing machine & tumble dryer available by separate negotiation), space for coats etc., and an inner door to the kitchen, both the porch and kitchen having the same tile effect vinyl flooring.

The kitchen is a good-sized room to the rear of the house with dining area and fitted kitchen, both with windows facing east. The kitchen has fitted units in a white gloss finish set off by black granite effect worktops and matching splash backs, the units including an integral double oven & hob with stainless steel cooker hood over, plus a concealed integrated dishwasher. The fridge / freezer is available by separate negotiation. A peninsular unit separates the kitchen from the dining area which has plenty of space for a table and chairs and a large built-in shelved cupboard providing additional storage space. Both areas have a ceiling mounted spotlight fitting controlled by dimmer switches.

A half-glazed door from the dining area leads to the hall which has a built-in store cupboard and access hatch to the loft with pull-down ladder. On the right a glazed door with glazed side panel opens to the very generously proportioned living room which benefits from two windows, one a wide picture window, facing west and enjoying the fantastic view along the voe, further borrowed light coming from a half-glazed door and sidelight to the side which opens to a large west-facing paved patio. There is plenty of room for both living and dining areas, the living area being carpeted, the dining area having laminate flooring. An electric flame effect fire set in a fireplace surround is an attractive focal point and cosy alternative heat source although the room has two central heating radiators. There is also a handy built-in cupboard and plenty of artificial lighting provided by two feature centre fittings, a third pendant light and two matching wall lights, all controlled by several dimmer switches.

Opposite the living room is a family bathroom tiled to dado height, with white three piece suite, the vanity wash hand basin having a fitted cupboard unit below and mirror & glass shelf over, lighting being provided by recessed ceiling spotlights and the floor being laid with vinyl. Next are two bedrooms both with built-in cupboards, one a wardrobe, the other shelved, carpeted bedroom 1 on the left facing west and again enjoying the view, bedroom 4 which has laminate flooring, facing east.

At the end of the hall are two further bedrooms and a shower room, the shower room, again tiled to dado height and laid with vinyl flooring, comprising a white WC and wash hand basin set in a run of fitted floor and wall units providing lots of space for toiletries etc. and having a mirror and integral spotlighting over. Both rooms are carpeted and have two built-in wardrobes / cupboards, bedroom 2 faces west to the voe, bedroom 3 faces east, lighting in this room being provided by a feature centre fitting and two matching wall lights.

The property is situated in a larger than average site which is estimated to extend to around just under o.4 acres or thereby. The boundary to the road side is enclosed by a stone dyke with a cattle grid leading to a chipped parking area to the side of the house with space for three or four cars. To the left is a front lawn and external cold water tap, whilst ahead of the parking area is a substantial concrete slab originally intended for a garage. In the concrete blockwork corner is a shed. On the west side of the house a large paved patio area provides a great place to sit in the afternoon / evening sun and enjoy the fine view.

The site also includes the additional grassed area to the south / west side of the house which might have some development potential, perhaps for a small chalet, although this would be subject to the usual consents required and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard. There should certainly be space for a conservatory / polytunnel etc. (again subject to consents). Otherwise it simply provides a large amount of extra outside space.

Council Tax

Understood to currently be Band D. Prospective purchasers should however contact Shetland Islands Council directly for confirmation. Details of Council Tax rates can be found on Shetland Island Council’s website at:

Property location

To reach the property take the main Westside road towards Whiteness & Weisdale, turning southwards to Wormadale & Nesbister opposite the bus stop at the bottom of the hill at Wormadale. Cross the cattle grid and fork immediately right to Nesbister passing a row of semi-detached houses. Follow the road down and around the head of the voe and continue southwards. ‘Sudragarth’ is one of the last houses on the right hand side immediately after a passing place.


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 availed ourselves of services provided by Harper Macleod of Lerwick, both in buying and selling residential property. Our needs on both these occasions were fully met and the service provided by them made our task in these circumstances, seemingly without effort.

Prior to this we had also received very helpful general advice pertaining to Shetland real estate from them. This was a tremendous benefit to us at the time.

If you are seeking cost effective, excellent real estate marketing and legal services, we would not hesitate in recommending Harper Macleod of Lerwick.
