Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Attractive, four bedroom, stone-built, mid-terraced property with period features, situated in a sought-after address in a convenient central Lerwick location close to the park and bowling green, and within easy reach of amenities, a convenience store and chemist being close by at the end of the road.

In addition to four good-sized double bedrooms, including a bay windowed principal bedroom, the spacious double glazed family accommodation which is arranged over three floors also includes a well-proportioned sittingroom, again with bay window, dining room, kitchen, family bathroom with bath and separate shower, plus an office / box room and store with extensive storage space.

Heating is provided by electric storage / panel heaters although there are also several fireplaces which it is thought could potentially be re-used with little effort although they have not been tested.

Externally there are garden areas to the front and rear, a large garden shed and additional store.

Entry to the house is through the neatly kept front garden area which is enclosed by a low wall complete with original cast iron railings and gate, the path from the street running past a low maintenance chipped area surrounded by established flower beds to the front door, a cold water tap by the door being handy for watering plants etc. The door opens to a vestibule which retains the original decorative tiled floor and has a half-glazed inner door with glazed panels either side opening to the hall laid with hardwearing 'Kardean' tile effect flooring, glazed doors leading to the sittingroom and separate dining room, a third door at the end opening to the kitchen.

The sittingroom is an attractive, well-proportioned room with original features and a large bay window to King Harald Street. It has a fitted carpet and the electric fire set in a 'period' style fire surround will remain as will the centre light fitting. A shelved cupboard provides space for books, CDs etc. The dining room is again a good size and carpeted, this room having a window to the rear facing west. The tiled fireplace houses a working open fire and again there is a shelved cupboard to one side with further cupboard over housing the hot water tank.

The flooring in the hall extends into the kitchen which has a window looking out over the back garden, the fitted units including a concealed integrated dishwasher and cooker hood, inset sink, a couple of glazed display cabinets and wine rack. The splash backs are tiled. The cooker, fridge & washing machine are included in the sale. Further shelved cupboard and door to the back garden.

Back in the hall the staircase which retains the original cast iron balustrades and wooden handrail and is laid with a carpet runner, and leads up to a mezzanine floor where a glazed door opens to a family bathroom with ample natural light provided by two windows. There is a bath with tiled shelf to one side and a separate wet wall-lined shower enclosure with electric shower & glazed screen / door, plus a WC and wash hand basin set in a fitted vanity unit with mirror and light / shaver fitting over and fitted cupboard space below, further storage being provided by another fitted cupboard on the other side of the door. The wood lined ceiling and additional wooden detailing around the bath and behind the wash hand basin is an attractive feature. Vinyl flooring & heated towel rail.

The stair continues to a carpeted first floor landing where doors open to two large carpeted double bedrooms, the spacious principal bedroom to the front being a bright room benefiting from lots of natural light thanks to its large bay window to the street, this room also having an intricate ceiling cornice. Bedroom 2 which is situated to the rear of the house, has a shelved cupboard. The third room on the first floor has extensive built-in cupboard space along one wall although this could easily be removed and the room potentially used as a box bedroom or perhaps an office.

The stair then continues up to the second floor, a hatch on the half-landing providing access to the eaves space, the landing having a hatch to the loft space. Here there are two further double bedrooms, both carpeted, and an office / box room with Velux window. Like bedroom 1 bedroom 3 has a large bay window to the street, allowing for a sideways view over to the park, the site of the galley burning for Lerwick's Up Helly Aa, ample store space being provided by a fitted wardrobe / dressing table unit along one wall. Bedroom 4 which has a Velux window to the rear, again has extensive built-in cupboard / storage space to two sides.
