General Information

Dalsetter Wynd is situated approximately 22 miles from Lerwick, on the east side of the South Mainland of Shetland overlooking a voe.

The estate is situated about a mile from the main amenities in the area which are grouped together on the main Lerwick – Sumburgh road and include Mainland’s mini-supermarket / post office & filling station, a small hardware store and the local primary school. Sumburgh Airport for air travel to mainland Scotland is within easy reach.

The house has been extensively refurbished in recent times, most of the internal work having been carried out in 2007 and including re-lining and insulating the downstairs external walls, installation of a new oil-fired central heating system, and the fitting of a new kitchen, bathroom & toilet. Since then the house has been re-harled. All the windows and door are uPVC double glazed units. The larger Velux windows in the two bedrooms have been replaced.

The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, blinds and light fittings.
