Ideal for letting out on a permanent basis or for holiday use thanks to its convenient central Lerwick location, or a first time buy, this is a three bedroom / two shower room property on Market Street within easy walking distance of North Ness Business Park, Shetland Museum & Mareel cinema / music venue, and also shops etc. on Commercial Street.

Newly converted to a high standard from former office premises, the property comprises a spacious living / dining room / kitchen, utility area / storeroom & shower room on the ground floor plus two double bedrooms, a third single bedroom and a second shower room on the first floor.

As part of the conversion the property was taken right back to the original shell and re-lined and insulated to modern standards. It has also been completely re-wired and re-plumbed and effectively offers all the 'walk-in' convenience of a 'new-build' within the original exterior. Windows are double glazed and heating is by 'Dimplex' storage / panel heaters.

Viewing recommended.


The accommodation comprises a vestibule and hall leading to the kitchen / living room and a shower room on the ground floor. Off the kitchen / living room is a handy utility / storeroom. Upstairs is a landing with a large built-in airing cupboard and doors to two double bedrooms, a third single bedroom, and the second shower room. In detail the accommodation comprises:-
