The original house was built c.1990 and later extended in 2009. The accommodation in the original part comprises a sittingroom, separate family room, three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite toilet, and a bathroom. The additional accommodation provided by the extension comprises a substantial 25' triple aspect kitchen / living / dining room, a cloakroom which could potentially be used as an office, plus a spacious 20' utility room / store which could potentially be converted for use as a fourth bedroom (subject to consents).

The property is double glazed and has electric storage / panel heating supplemented by an oil-fired 'Rayburn' range in the kitchen.

There is a large attached garage, plenty of parking, and garden areas to the front and rear.

General Information
'Kiloran' is situated off the road to Melby in the scattered settlement of Sandness, a picturesque, rural location on the west side of Shetland, approximately 31 miles from Lerwick.

Local amenities in the area include a primary school (within walking distance of the house) and village hall, and it is also the location of Jamiesons Woolen Mill. There is a lovely beach along the road at Melby, and historic water mills at Huxter. Walls (approximately 9 miles), has further amenities including another primary school, a shop / post office with fuel, and a doctor's surgery, whilst Bixter (approximately 12 miles back towards Lerwick) has another shop, again selling fuel, a health centre, veterinary surgery & garage. The Westside leisure centre / swimming pool is situated at Aith about 3 miles north of Bixter, along with the area's Junior High School.

The house, which is of 'Scandinavian' style timber frame / timber clad construction, was built c.1990. An extension to the rear was added in 2009. Windows are double glazed and heating to the original property is by electric storage / panel heaters. Heating to the kitchen which forms the main part of the extension, is provided by an oil-fired 'Rayburn' range which also supplies a radiator in the rear hallway.

It is thought that this could supply additional heaters if required but prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard. The 'Rayburn' also supplies the hot water cylinder for the extension. There is a separate hot water tank in the original property.

The property is being sold as is with all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, curtains & light fittings included. The accommodation in the original house would perhaps benefit from some updating which is reflected in the price, but nonetheless the property provides good-sized family accommodation with the added benefit of it being all one level.

Note any alterations referred to would be subject to any necessary consents required and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

Sittingroom, family room, kitchen / dining room, three double bedrooms, bathroom, en-suite toilet, utility room / store, cloakroom / office, hall and front & rear vestibules. Attached garage.
