Upstairs there is a generously proportioned double bedroom and a bathroom.

A covered porch provides the entrance to the house, the front door opening to a carpeted vestibule with coat hooks to one side with electric heater below, and meter cupboard to the wall opposite. A glazed door opens to a small hallway with laminate flooring, an archway ahead to the living / dining room, glazed door to the kitchen on the left, and further door to the utility room to the right.

The kitchen was re-fitted about two years ago and features contemporary style units in a white gloss finish set off by grey speckled worktops and striking purple splash backs, the units including an integral induction hob and oven with stainless steel cooker hood over. There is also an inset 1½ bowl sink with mixer tap, a handy full-height pull-out larder unit plus carousels to both corner cabinets. The free-standing fridge and separate freezer will be included in the sale although no warranties will be given. Vinyl flooring.

The utility room provides useful storage space as well as having a worktop along one wall with plumbing for a washing machine (appliance included although again no warranty given) and a fitted drawer unit below. A built-in cupboard houses the 'Megaflo' hot water tank. Laminate flooring.

The living / dining room is a good-sized bright room thanks to windows at both ends, the living room window having a view northwards over Gremista generally to the sea in the far distance with Unicorn Rock and the island of Whalsay beyond. Wood laminate flooring is laid throughout and artificial light is provided by two centre lights and additional wall lighting. The dining room window faces south.

A pine staircase from the dining area leads up to a small carpeted landing on the first floor lit by a side window, with hatch to the loft space. Off the landing is the generously proportioned 'L'-shaped double bedroom, its gable window facing west, and the bathroom. The bedroom is carpeted and has access to storage space in the eaves on both sides. The bathroom comprises a white three piece suite, the bath having a tiled shower area, mixer tap / shower fitting & glazed shower screen over, the flooring being tile effect laminate.

Property location

Unicorn Court is situated on the north side of Lerwick off Ladies Drive at Gremista. To locate the property drive to the roundabout by Gremista Industrial Estate and turn up the hill into Gremista Brae. Follow the road around to the right into Ladies Drive and continue past the wooden houses on the right (Gremmasgaet, Stocketgaet & Norgaet) until you come to the painted wooden houses of Unicorn View, the road into Unicorn View being at the end far end. Pass the Unicorn View road and turn next left (signposted for Hill Grind & Cruester View) and immediately left again into Unicorn Court; No. 20 being the grey house on the right hand corner.

I was really satisfied with the service you provided and would recommend it.
