Very spacious, five bedroom / two reception room, detached house with a double garage, in established residential area on the south side of Lerwick within walking distance of both Sound Primary School and Anderson High School, and Tesco's supermarket. The house and the main garden enjoy a sunny southerly aspect and a fine sea view particularly from the upper floor.

Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises two reception rooms both with south-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows, a breakfasting kitchen, two bath / shower rooms, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and utility room on the ground floor, plus two very spacious double bedrooms and a large office / box room which could perhaps be converted into an extra bath room, on the first floor.
