Full description

Detached house set in around acre, set in a prime seafront location right in the centre of the village of Walls, on the west side of Shetland. Situated right by the shore, the property enjoys stunning views south-westwards over the voe of Vaila Sound, and is a great place to spot seals and otters, and other wildlife in the voe, seals often basking on the property's own jetty which is just yards from the kitchen window.

The double glazed accommodation in this Grade 'C' listed house, is arranged over two floors, and comprises a living room, separate dining room or bedroom, kitchen and shower room on the ground floor plus a large living area / studio / open bedroom space and double bedroom on the first floor. Central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler.

The site, which is situated close by the local shop and within walking distance of the school and health centre, includes a large walled garden immediately in front of the house and two sheds. The jetty makes it an ideal property for a boating enthusiast, particularly as the boating club is also nearby.

General Information
'Seafield' is attractively situated in a prime seafront location right in the centre of the picturesque village of Walls, in the West Mainland of Shetland, approximately 25 miles from Lerwick. The house sits in an unusually large site by the shore at the head of the voe of Vaila Sound which it overlooks. The location allows the property to benefit from fine views across the voe towards the island of Linga in the distance.

The village also has a public hall, marina and boating club, the boating club being just along the shore from the house. A commuter bus service runs to Lerwick.

The house which is Grade 'C' listed, is believed to date from the early 19th century with later additions. Windows are double glazed and central heating is provided by a 'Rhino' combi boiler in a cupboard in the dining room.
