A unique opportunity to acquire a traditional Shetland cottage, situated in a very sheltered position at the top of a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Shetland’s ancient capital, Scalloway, on its west coast, with a view over Scalloway harbour.
The property is just a short walk away from the village’s harbour area and a range of amenities such as the local shops (including chemist, hairdresser, beauty salon, post office and restaurants), doctor's surgery, motor garage, primary school, swimming pool, marina/boating club and the NAFC Marine Centre. It is a short (6 miles) commute to Lerwick, Shetland’s main population and commercial centre and benefits from a convenient bus service.
The original house was built in the early 1900s and a kitchen/bathroom extension added subsequently. With generously proportioned two main reception rooms and two bedrooms, the house is double-glazed and has oil-fired central heating throughout.
This attractive older property retains its original period features from its front railings to large rooms with picture rails, panelled wood staircase and fireplaces in every room (these can be used following the removal of caps from the chimneys), although there is already a Morso stove in operation in the living room. A sizeable front garden continues alongside a tarred pathway around the south side of the house, where it joins the very large and very private rear garden measuring 17m wide by 20m deep along the north boundary and 16m along the south boundary (all approx.). This at present has been laid down by the owners to a planned “wild garden” and boasts quite a number of large shrubs and mature trees, some rare.
A main attraction of the property is also the potential for building a one or two storey extension to the rear which would make a large family home or a large kitchen/garden room, subject to the necessary consents being obtained.
HALLWAY - (Approx. 1.5m x 1.9m)
Stained solid timber front door leads into a small Hallway which provides access on either side to the two Reception Rooms, and to the First Floor via the staircase. A walk-in under-stair cupboard with coat racks provides storage space. With central pendant light fitting, single panel radiator, one double and one single electrical socket and a small shelf for the telephone and internet connection.
RECEPTION ROOM NO. 1 - (Living Room, Approx. 5.2m x 4.2m)
A generously proportioned reception room (Living Room) features a large double-glazed double window to the front, with varnished pine ingoes. The tiled fireplace and hearth contains a Morso stove with mantelpiece above. Other features include a picture rail, central pendant light fitting, vinyl over wood flooring, two radiators and two double electrical sockets.
BACK HALLWAY - (Approx. 1.9m x 1.5m)
Doors lead off to both Reception Rooms and the Kitchen. With wood effect vinyl floor, coat hooks, wired smoke alarm, telephone point and storage cupboards above.
RECEPTION ROOM NO. 2 - (Dining Room, Approx. 5.2m x 4.2m)
Of similar size to the Living Room, this features an open fireplace and hearth covered with ceramic tiles. Double-glazed double windows at the front and the rear provide good light. With picture rail, central light fitting, carpet over wooden floor, one double and one single radiator and three double sockets. Currently used as a Dining Room, the unique location of windows and doors in this room would make it perfect for simple conversion into two large bedrooms, thus making the property into a four bedroom dwelling.
KITCHEN - (Approx. 3.7m x 2.9m)
The Kitchen looks out on to and provides access to the rear garden. It contains a work surface with single drainer stainless steel sink over floor mounted units. There are additional wall mounted units above and electrical sockets. With Zanussi electric 4 burner ceramic hob and double oven. A small full height pantry-style cupboard contains a Bosch washing machine with storage shelving above and an electrical socket. With double radiator, vinyl flooring and space for a table and chairs, the Grant oil boiler is also here. A large hatchway provides access to a floored loft extending the length of the kitchen and bathroom, containing the Albion hot water cylinder, with electric light and a side window. A doorway from the kitchen opens to a small lobby which leads to a Bathroom and separate Toilet.
BATHROOM - (Approx. 2m x 1.9m reducing to 1.1m)
L shaped with wash hand basin and bath. Heated towel warmer. Double glazed window overlooking the back garden.

Two double sockets at either side of the fireplace and another two double sockets by the bed. The fireplace is faced with ceramic tiles and has a wooden mantelpiece. A hatchway provides access to the main Loft. With double radiator and central pendant light fitting.
BEDROOM 2 - (Approx. 4.2m x 5.2m)
Another spacious double room with similar features to Bedroom 1. Includes a telephone point.
SMALL STUDY - (Approx. 1.9m x 1.6m)
Accessed from Bedroom 2, with Velux roof window.
There is a shed with power and light attached to the north side of the house and to an adjoining coal bunker/wood store.
Sideboard units in Reception Room 2 and in the Back Hallway are included in the sale of the house.
