Rare opportunity to acquire a distinctive detached house tucked away in a small cul-de-sac between Lovers Lane and the south end of Commercial Street, a very convenient central location a short stroll through the historic Lodberries area and past fictional TV detective Jimmy Perez's house to the small boat harbour, Commercial Street and town centre amenities.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the main rooms being on the first floor allowing the two reception rooms including a lovely bright sittingroom with additional sun room off, and one of the bedrooms to benefit from the fine view over the harbour area across to Bressay.

The manageable garden has off-street tarred parking for two or three cars to the front plus a large, quite secluded paved patio area to the rear.

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but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.
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.
