Two bedrooms, reception room, bathroom, loft suitable for development (subject to consents)


Modern semi-detached property on the north side of Lerwick, which would make an ideal first time buy or letting property, with the added bonus of a substantial loft with potential for development to provide additional accommodation perhaps to form a third bedroom and en-suite, subject to consents.

Off 'Scandinavian' style timber frame / timber clad construction below a tiled roof, the property has ‘NordDan’ double glazed windows and electric storage / panel heating.

The accommodation includes a spacious living / dining room, kitchen with integral oven & hob, two bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes, and a bathroom with electric over-bath shower.

Externally there is tarred off-street parking for two cars plus a small fenced and mainly grassed garden area with rotary clothes dryer.


Entry to the property is via steps to the side of the house which lead to a covered porch area and a front door opening to a vestibule which leads through to a generously proportioned living / dining room with door to the kitchen and archway through to an inner lobby to two bedrooms and the bathroom.


With space for coats etc., electric Heater, meter cupboard and glazed door to the living / dining room.
