Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Well-presented, two / three bedroom ground floor flat in handy central Lerwick location within easy reach of amenities with Mareel cinema / music venue, the museum and North Ness business area being close by, and Commercial Street being within walking distance.

The flat occupies the whole ground floor of a traditional three storey stone-built building comprising just two properties. In addition to the three bedrooms, two spacious doubles and a box bedroom which would make an ideal office, the 'walk-into' accommodation also includes a good-sized living room, kitchen / diner plus a modern shower room. The garden area to the front of the building goes with the flat which also has its own sizeable garden shed and use of a shared drying green.

Most of the property was completely re-lined and insulated (including the floor) in 2017, which coupled with central heating provided by the Lerwick District Heating system and uPVC double glazing means the property offers modern standard of comfort within a traditional exterior.

Early viewing recommended.


Entry to the flat is through a front garden area which goes with the property, the space being laid out with gravel chips to one side, and a small area of lawn to the other flanked by established flower beds. A uPVC front door with feature glazed panel opens to a vestibule with wood effect vinyl flooring and glazed inner door to the carpeted hall, the hall and vestibule being attractively finished with grey wallpaper below white painted walls divided by a dado rail, and grey painted original doors lead to all rooms.

On the left is a good-sized living room with window with wooden slatted blind to St Magnus Street, and engineered oak flooring. There is a satellite TV connection which is also linked through to the main bedroom. On the right is a generously proportioned carpeted main bedroom which also looks out to the street, this window having a venetian blind.

To the rear is the kitchen, a shower room, and the two further bedrooms.

The kitchen has space for a table & chairs and white units set off by grey speckled worktops and matching upstands, and striking green tiled splash backs, the units including an inset sink below the window which looks out over the back garden, the window reveal providing additional worktop space. The cooker, fridge / freezer and washing machine will be included in the sale along with the clothes pulley / pan rack over the sink. A built-in cupboard houses the District Heating unit and grey wood effect vinyl is laid to the floor.

The attractive tiled shower room was completely re-fitted to a high standard in 2016, and now comprises a shower enclosure with 'rainfall' shower supplied by the District Heating, a glazed screen / door and contrasting grey wall tiles, plus a contemporary style white WC & wash hand basin with mixer tap and mirror over. Contrasting slate tiles are laid to the floor and a heated towel rail / radiator provides heating.

The two remaining bedrooms, both carpeted, are situated to the rear of the flat with windows looking out over the back garden, both with blinds. Bedroom 2 is another large double; box bedroom 3 would make a great home office space.

The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, and blinds.
