Overview

Super, purpose-built, top (third) floor flat in great central location convenient for amenities with North Ness Business Park, Shetland Museum, Mareel music & cinema venue, the Toll Clock and a supermarket all close by, and Commercial Street, the Anderson High School & Clickimin Leisure Centre all within walking distance.

Presented in excellent, ‘walk-into’ condition, the comfortable accommodation comprises a bright dual-aspect living room with Juliet balcony, a kitchen / dining room complete with integral appliances plus a handy additional utility space off, a family bathroom with over-bath shower, plus two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. Central heating is provided by the Lerwick District Heating system.

The property enjoys a sunny south-facing aspect and thanks to its elevated position enjoys fine views over the surrounding area and across to the island of Bressay.

This attractive property represents a great first time buy or a 'buy-to-let' particularly as the furniture is available by separate negotiation.

General Information

This attractive top floor flat forms part of a purpose-built four storey building comprising three floors of residential flats over a furniture store, the building having been completed in 2016. The flat is fully double glazed and benefits from a wet radiator central heating system supplied by heat exchanger unit connected to the Lerwick District Heating system which also provides hot water.

A £50 monthly charge covers buildings insurance and regular cleaning of the communal areas.

All carpets and other fixed floor coverings, and window blinds are included in the sale. The furniture is available by separate negotiation.

Accommodation

A door with secure entry phone access to the east side of the building provides entry to the block, flat 11 being one of five flats on the third floor where there is a large hall and doors to each of the five flats. The entrance door to the flat opens to a wide hallway with doors to the two bedrooms, the bathroom, kitchen and a handy built-in cupboard which provides space for coats etc. and also houses the District Heating unit thus providing a great airing facility. The light covered wood effect vinyl flooring enhances the light and airy feel to the interior and also extends into the bathroom.

At the end of the hall is a door to the dining area of the kitchen, a lovely bright space thanks to two windows to the front of the building facing south providing lots of natural light. There is space for a dining table & chairs and a fitted kitchen with modern units in a white gloss finish set off by black granite effect worktops, the units incorporating a range of integrated appliances including an oven and hob with concealed cooker hood over, plus a concealed fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is also an inset sink below the two windows. Wood effect vinyl flooring.

Off the dining area concealed behind a space saving sliding pocket door, is a handy additional utility space with worktop with space below for a washer dryer which is also included in the sale, the space providing useful extra storage. As it has its own central heating radiator it also provides another airing facility.

The kitchen opens into the good-sized, carpeted living area, another exceptionally bright space thanks to the large window area to the east and south, the east-facing window enjoying the view over the surrounding area and across to the island of Bressay, the windows to the front incorporating a Juliet balcony.

Back off the hall are the two similarly sized double bedrooms, both with windows facing east and enjoying the same view as the living room. Each room has a large built-in wardrobe with shelf & hanging rail concealed behind sliding opaque glass doors. Finally, the family bathroom has a white contemporary style three-piece suite including bath with shower over.

Harper Macleod LLP were excellent in the sale of my house. This was my first house sale and from the beginning of the process to the end they provided brilliant support and guidance. The process was made simple for me and each step was explained fully. They were very efficient and effective with communications.
