General Information

‘Bayview’ is situated in an idyllic rural location in South Nesting. Offering an attractive rural situation the house is only 15 miles from Lerwick putting the town within easy commuting distance; it is also situated on the right side of town for easy access to Brae and the north.

The house enjoys views of the West Voe of Skellister and a small beach, and north-east to the sea.

Local amenities in the area include a primary school, village hall and a shop & post office, a couple of miles from the house, which also sells fuel.

The house is of timber frame / timber clad construction below a 'Decra' tiled roof. Although compact the double glazed accommodation includes two bedrooms, a good-sized kitchen / living / dining room with multi-fuel stove, a shower room plus an integral store room which was previously a garage but could provide a third bedroom subject to the necessary consents required.

Some minor cosmetic work is required to some rooms and installation of some additional heating would be beneficial, all of which is reflected in the price, however the property still offers comfortable accommodation set in an attractive site tucked in the corner of a track off the main road through South Nesting.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.

We were very impressed with your professional manner and always keeping us up to date with progress.
