Energy Efficiency Rating: E (43)
The house is situated towards the eastern end of Brewick Road just in from the junction with Knab Road, being the left hand house of the pair of semi-detached houses in the middle of the small loop road off Brewick Road on the left (approaching from Knab Road).
As already noted the location of the property puts Commercial Street and town centre amenities within walking distance with a short walk to the end of the road and down Knab Road taking you to Church Road and beyond to the small boat harbour area. There are also pleasant walks around The Knab where there is a small pitch and putt golf course.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.
Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
