Full description

Prestigious, stone-built, detached town villa in very convenient, sought-after, central Lerwick location on Twageos Road, within walking distance of Commercial Street and the small boat harbour, and also pleasant walks around the parkland at the Knab. The property looks out over the harbour approach across to Bressay providing a great vantage point from which to view boats entering the harbour.

With a gross internal floor area of 330m (excluding the garage), the property offers very spacious, well-presented, family accommodation arranged over three floors, including three beautifully proportioned reception rooms plus a further living room and separate family / sun room, a stunning, contemporary breakfasting kitchen and up to seven bedrooms. Although retaining many period features and the character of the original property, the house benefits from the modern comforts of double glazing with sash & case look-a-like windows, and central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system.

The house sits in a mature, walled garden with extensive off-street parking and a large double garage with twin electric doors.
