General Information

‘Juraisland’ is situated in the Hillside area of Gulberwick, a popular location particularly with families, as it offers a less densely populated more semi-rural environment yet is still just a short 5 minute drive away from the centre of town. School transport is provided for primary / secondary schooling in Lerwick, the local hall is nearby, and a short walk from the house takes you to Gulberwick beach.

The property is of ‘Scandinavian’ style timber frame / timber clad construction. The house is fully double glazed and has central heating provided by a ‘Heatrae Sadia Amptec’ electric boiler situated in a cupboard off the utility room which also houses the ‘Megaflo’ hot water tank, the boiler supplying radiators throughout the house.


A covered porch area with ramped access to the side of the house provides the entrance to the house, the double glazed door opening to a vestibule with handy built-in cupboard providing space for coats etc., wood effect vinyl flooring and a glazed inner door opening to the hall with doors to all downstairs rooms, glazed doors to the left leading to the kitchen / dining room and living room, whilst to the right is a utility room, shower room and bedroom plus the stair to the first floor which has some storage space below.

The wood laminate flooring in the hall extends into the kitchen / dining room, a large, bright, dual-aspect room with plenty of space for a table & chairs and ample fitted units including an integral oven and induction hob with stainless steel & glass cooker hood over, plus plumbing for a dishwasher (appliance not included), ample artificial light being provided by a feature light fitting over the dining area and recessed ceiling spotlighting to the kitchen. A wide archway with integral spotlighting leads through to the living room, again a good-sized room with the same laminate flooring, sliding patio doors opening to a timber deck and the garden. Centre spotlight fitting.

Across the hall from the living room is the downstairs bedroom, a rear-facing double room with built-in wardrobe with shelf & hanging rail, and wood laminate flooring. Next to the stairs is a shower room with tiling to a dado rail and also to the floor which has underfloor heating below, a shower enclosure with ‘Triton’ combi shower & glazed door, plus a white WC and wash hand basin.

Finally on the ground floor is a utility room with further fitted units and another sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer etc. (appliances not included), laminate flooring and a heated towel rail. A built-in cupboard provides storage space and also houses the hot water tank and central heating boiler.

A pine staircase lit by a Velux window over, leads up to the first floor landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom, additional storage space being provided by a built-in cupboard and the loft space. Laminate flooring.

Both bedrooms are good-sized, carpeted double rooms facing east and enjoying a view over the bay. Both also have built-in double wardrobes with a shelf and hanging rail plus a separate shelved cupboard so plenty of clothes and storage space is provided. Bedroom 2 on the right has a Velux window. The main bedroom, bedroom 3 on the left, has a dormer window.

The family bathroom comprises a white three piece suite, the bath having a mixer tap / shower attachment and glazed shower screen, the WC and wash hand basin both being set in fitted units, the sink having a wall-hung cupboard unit below, the unit to the WC concealing the cistern. Ladder style heated towel rail, tile effect flooring & Velux window.

The property benefits from a generous site, the garden being particularly well-established now and benefiting from a tarred parking area with gated access and space for three cars. A ramped access from the parking area leads to the covered porch area and the front door, a chipped area in front of the house next to the deck outside the living room having a rotary clothes dryer, and beyond that is a lawn that steps down to the boundary where a number of established trees provide privacy and shelter. On the other side of the parking area is a polytunnel and a number of raised beds.

Immediately to the north and rear of the house are two quite private garden areas, a lawned area surrounded by established planting, and a further area behind the house with a chipped seating area with built-in bench seating, this space being a great place to sit outside in the evening sun, Garden shed and cold water tap.

Property location

The hillside development is situated on the upper side of the lower loop road through Gulberwick, just to the south of the Village hall. Drive into the development and continue up the hill as the road winds through Lower Hillside and Hillside Park until you reach a sign on the right for Hillside Brae. ‘Juraisland’ is immediately on the left, being the first of a row of six semi-detached houses.

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.
