Full description


'Herrafjell' is situated almost at the end of a quiet side road which runs along the east side of Vidlin Voe with only a handful of houses beyond it, in Vidlin, a small village in the north-east corner of Mainland Shetland approximately 22 north of Lerwick, Shetland's main town, the location also being within easy reach of Brae & Sullom Voe to the north.
Local amenities are mainly based near to the head of the voe which the house overlooks, these including the local primary school (secondary pupils go to Brae) and a marina, plus a short distance beyond that is the local shop (about a mile from the house) which also sells fuel, and the village hall.

Completed in 2016 by E & H Building Contractors Ltd, the property is of 'Scandinavian' style timber frame / timber clad construction below a concrete tiled roof.

Windows are high performance uPVC double glazed units, central heating is provided by an air source heat pump feeding an under floor heating system throughout the ground floor with 12 separately controllable zones, and radiators throughout the first floor. The two upstairs bath / shower rooms have electric underfloor heating. A contemporary style inset solid-fuel fire in the main sittingroom, which can also be viewed from the family room to the other side, provides an attractive supplementary heat source.

The air source heat pump system also supplies the 'Dimplex' hot water tank which is housed in a services cupboard off the entrance hall. The house is wired to all rooms for Cat5e Ethernet connections for internet, satellite TV & telephone. The house has a Sky 'Q' satellite dish.

The property has been decorated in light neutral colours which combined with the white high quality 600cm ceramic floor tiles which are laid throughout the entire ground floor accommodation with the exception of the sittingroom which has wood laminate flooring, has created an exceptionally light and airy feel to the interior, split face stone cladding to the fireplace wall in the family room adding a striking touch. Recessed LED ceiling spotlighting is used extensively, mostly controlled by dimmer switches.

The overall effect is a stunning, well-presented property which must be viewed.

A large west-facing deck provides the entrance to the property as well as providing a great place to sit and enjoy the spectacular elevated views over the voe, the glazed front door opening to a lovely bright entrance hall with two large cupboards, one for coats etc., the other housing the heating controls and hot water tank etc.

From here further glazed doors lead to the kitchen to the right and to a large living space / dining area to the left. This space which also has patio doors to the deck, has a stone-faced feature inset fireplace which can also be viewed from the adjoining bay windowed sittingroom, whilst at the rear the large dining area flows through to an entertainment area off kitchen, a particularly bright high ceilinged space with west-facing window and two Velux roof lights over, the kitchen units incorporating a range of integral appliances. At the rear of the kitchen a large walk-in larder provides plenty of space for food, whilst another door leads to a utility room and a workshop / gym.

Back off the living / dining room a glazed door opens to an inner hallway with doors to a ground floor shower room, a handy under-stairs cupboard and the stunning master bedroom suite with spacious dressing room and a well-appointed en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, twin wash hand basins & WC.

The whole ground floor accommodation aside from the main sittingroom which has wood laminate flooring, is laid with white ceramic floor tiles which unify the space and enhance the airy feel.

Upstairs a large open landing space which is filled with lots of natural light thanks to a triple dormer window enjoying the superb view to the west, provides an additional living / study / play space and access to four double bedrooms, three with built-in wardrobe space, a family bathroom complete with double ended bath and separate shower, and another shower room.

Sittingroom, living / dining room & open-plan landing / living area, kitchen with walk-in pantry, 5 bedrooms including master suite, 3 further bath / shower rooms, utility / laundry room & workshop / gym.
