Living room, dining room, kitchen / diner, four bedrooms, shower room, further room, hallway & porch / greenhouse. Garage / workshop.
Detached property with a large garage / workshop, conveniently situated just to the north of Strand Loch in a rural location just six miles from the centre of Lerwick and all its amenities, and also on the right side of town for access to the north & Brae / Sullom Voe.
Housed in what was originally the local hall, the mainly double glazed, single-storey accommodation comprises a living room, dining room, kitchen / diner, four bedrooms and a shower room, plus a substantial porch / greenhouse along the front of the house. There is a further room off one of the bedrooms which could perhaps provide space for an en-suite.
Central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler.
Tarred parking for three cars and mainly grassed garden area.
The property requires modernisation which is reflected in the price, but nonetheless provides a four bedroomed home in this popular and convenient location.
'Parkhall' is situated at Gott, a rural area just six miles from the centre of Lerwick, an ideal location for commuting into the town, and also for access to the north. There is a local primary school along the road within reasonable walking distance, other amenities can be found in Lerwick itself.
The property was originally built in 1905 as the local public hall. At one time the two rooms at the north end housed the local shop and post office.
The main house is double glazed with the exception of the porch / greenhouse, and central heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler in a small boiler house to the rear of the property.

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.
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.
