In brief:
Substantial two and a half storey property in central Lerwick. A unique opportunity to acquire a semi-detached, and comfortable, house complete with high quality materials and finishes, in excellent condition throughout. The ground floor is largely self-contained and includes a large Meeting Room with facilities, and its own internal entrance. The first and upper floors include 3 Bedrooms, Bathroom, Shower-Room, large open-plan Living/Dining area and a spacious Kitchen. Viewing is highly recommended as this property is so individual in layout/design and hard to appreciate without a visit.

In more detail:
The ground floor is largely self-contained and includes a large Meeting Room with facilities, and an internal entrance as well as its own emergency exit. Subject to consents the ground floor has potential as a separate flat, a studio, a business unit or just additional accommodation. The first and upper floors comprise the main existing living accommodation and include 3 Bedrooms (one with sink unit), Bathroom, Shower-Room, Large Open-Plan Living/Dining area and a spacious Kitchen.

Great attention to detail has been paid to the finishing and quality of carpentry work in the property. The Meeting Room (ground floor) is floored in real oak parquet, and the upper floors are floored with kiln dried solid Norwegian pine, and partially wall-lined and ceiling-covered in pine. The entire property is well supplied with electrical sockets throughout.

The location is in a quiet part of Lerwick. The "lanes" are known for their charm, and are sought after for a town dwelling. Many properties in the lanes have no access by car, while you can drive to the door of this house, because the property is built alongside an access-only, public lane. With its central location it is ideally placed close to the street, with only a couple of minutes walk to banks, post office, and also to the busy, cosmopolitan, harbour. The property can be used as a desirable large dwelling house, or as mentioned before has an array of possibilities for multi-purpose use.

There are paved/gravel pathways along the entrance side (south) and down the side (east) of the property. Otherwise, there are no external areas to maintain, apart from the balcony on the second floor.

The central heating throughout the property is by radiator connected to the Lerwick District Heating Scheme which also provides hot water. There is back-up heating from electric panel radiators and from a Norwegian solid-fuel room heater in the Lounge, and an open fire in the general purpose Meeting Room on the ground floor. The property is double-glazed with timber-framed windows and roof-lights, and timber, partially-glazed external doors.

ACCOMMODATION:


 

Ground Floor:- Meeting Hall, Kitchen, Toilet and Boxroom.
First Floor:- Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen, Two Bedrooms and Bathroom.
Second Floor:- Mezzanine Sitting Room with external Balcony, Bedroom, Shower Room and Boxroom
