Stunning, completely refurbished, semi-detached property, one of the best refurbishment properties we have seen, comprising beautifully presented three bedroom family accommodation close by the school, leisure centre, health centre & Co-op supermarket. The property benefits from a super low maintenance landscaped back garden and a substantial shed / multi-purpose space which would make an ideal home office or gym.
Completely refurbished in 2014 / 2015 with considerable flair and to a high standard, the property comprises a bright south-facing living room, stylish fitted kitchen / diner, single bedroom and bathroom with bath and separate shower on the ground floor, plus two spacious double bedrooms, one with an en-suite toilet upstairs, both having extensive built-in clothes / storage space.
Externally there is off-street parking for two cars, an attractive outdoor space to the rear enjoying a south and westerly aspect with large decked area, built-in bench seating and artificial grass lawn, plus the detached shed.
Early viewing essential.
6 Gindahoul is conveniently situated close to amenities in the centre of Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland of Shetland and the location of the area’s main services and amenities, all of which are within walking distance of the house and include the health centre, leisure centre / swimming pool, High School which provides nursery, primary & secondary schooling, and a Co-op supermarket. There are also several other local shops, a couple of garages, and award winning fish & chip shop, hotel & bar.
The location of the property means it is well placed for access to oil and other related industries at Sullom Voe Terminal and the gas plant. A regular bus service runs throughout the day to Lerwick.
The property was re-roofed in 2012 including new Velux windows, and later completely refurbished internally in 2014 - 2016, the work including new uPVC windows and hardwood external doors, re-lining and insulation with ‘Kingspan’ (floor also insulated), re-wiring & re-plumbing including a new ‘Megaflo’ how water tank, new Dimplex ‘Duoheat’ storage / convector heaters, and a new kitchen, bathroom and en-suite WC to the main bedroom. New cupboard space was also created in the porch and upstairs bedrooms. Later in 2018 the garden was landscaped, a private off-street parking area created, and the large shed built.
The front door to the property opens to an entrance lobby lit by a large window over the door, an inner door with frosted glass panel leading to the hall to the left, whilst a handy built-in cupboard to the right provides space for coats etc. The ‘QuickStep’ waterproof laminate flooring in the lobby extends into the hall, attractively finished like the rest of the house, with kitchen to the left, the living room, bedroom, bathroom and a useful shelved cupboard to the right, the recess to the side of the stairs providing space for a table etc., a fitted cupboard just inside the door neatly housing the electric meter.
The beautifully fitted kitchen is a particularly bright space with windows to the front and rear, the south-facing back window looking out over the garden. Contemporary style units in a striking ‘taupe’ finish, set off by wood block effect worktops and cream coloured splash backs make this a particularly attractive space, the units which are arranged around space for table and chairs in the centre of the room, incorporating a large concealed larder fridge and integrated dishwasher, plus an inset 1½ bowl sink, the dual-fuel ‘Rangemaster’ cooker with pale blue glass splash back and stainless steel cooker hood over being included in the sale. Cream coloured blinds, two pendant light fittings and light coloured laminate flooring contrast with the pale blue panelled wall.
Off the kitchen is a utility room / rear porch with further fitted units including plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included), space for a freezer and a wine rack. There is also access to storage space under the stairs where the ‘Megaflo’ water tank is situated. Tile effect vinyl flooring.
Back off the hall is the south-facing living room with wood laminate flooring, a good-sized room accessed by a frosted glass door from the hall, the wide south-facing triple window making it a particularly bright space. Next is a west-facing single bedroom with a glimpse of the voe and again wood laminate flooring, and a stylish mainly tiled bathroom with wet wall-lined corner shower with ‘rainfall’ shower and separate hand held fitting, a separate bath plus a contemporary WC and wash hand basin set in extensive fitted units which provided lots of useful storage space, the sink having a mirror and spotlighting over. Again the flooring is laminate and heating is provided by a ladder style heated towel rail / radiator.
The stair which has treads laid with the same flooring as the hall, leads up to a first floor landing lit by a Velux window with integral venetian blind, with clothes pulley over the half-landing and hatch with pull down ladder providing access to the loft space. The landing leads to two large double bedrooms both with south-facing Velux windows with blackout blinds, large built-in wardrobes concealed behind part mirrored sliding doors, each providing a huge amount of fitted shelf & hanging space, and wood laminate flooring. The main bedroom to the left has an en-suite toilet with white WC & wash hand basin again with fitted units and a heated towel rail / radiator, plus a further built-in shelved cupboard. The third bedroom to the right has two built-in cupboards either side of the Velux window, one being shelved for towels etc.

Outside the back door which has ramped access, there is a path leading to the shed with a large decked area to the side with built-in bench seating, and a low maintenance artificial grass lawn to the right with rotary clothes dryer.

The substantial lined and insulated shed comprises a main multi-purpose space approx. 3.85m x 3.75m (12’8” x 12’4”) accessed by a double glazed uPVC door which would suit a variety of uses, e.g. as a gym, or it would make a great home office space as it has ample power sockets, recessed ceiling spotlighting and also an electric heater, the double glazed window looking out over the back garden, a run of fitted units along one wall providing extensive storage space.
