Three bedroom, single storey, detached property set in a small cul-de-sac with just 5 similar detached houses, is in a popular, semi-rural location just over three miles from the centre of Lerwick and amenities.

In addition to the three bedrooms (two doubles both with built-in wardrobes, and a single), the family accommodation which has uPVC double glazing (except side porch) and Dimplex Quantum electric storage/panel heating, also includes an 18’ x 12’ living room, a spacious kitchen with plenty of room for a table & chairs, plus a modern bathroom and a handy separate WC.

The property sits in a fenced site with low maintenance garden area to the front, and lawn/drying green to the rear. There is also a single garage.

5 Upper Hillside is situated in a popular location, particularly with families, as it offers a more rural setting yet is still within easy reach of all the amenities Lerwick, just a short 5 minute drive away, has to offer.

School transport is provided for primary and secondary schooling to Lerwick at either Sound primary school or the Anderson High School, and the local hall is used for a variety of functions. There is a bus stop on the main road at the Upper Hillside junction.



Entry is to the front of the house, the uPVC front door which has a glazed sidelight, opening to a lobby with built-in cupboard housing the electric meter etc. A glazed inner door, again with glazed side panel, then opens to the hall with doors to all rooms, two built-in cupboards providing handy storage space, one a shelved airing cupboard housing the 210 litre Kingspan Albion Ultrasteel hot water tank, the other a cloak cupboard with fitted light. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to the loft space. Storage/convector heater.

The living room on the left is a good-sized, carpeted room with a large window to the front of the house. There is a storage heater concealed behind a cover, although the freestanding fire surround with flame effect electric fire is available by separate negotiation.

Next to the living room, a glazed door opens to the large kitchen/diner to the rear of the property which benefits from two windows facing west, further natural light filtering through via the glazed door to a south-facing lobby with uPVC back door and quarry tiled floor. The kitchen has plenty of space for a table and chairs, and ample fitted units including a cooker hood, sink, and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine which are available by separate negotiation along with the cooker and fridge/freezer. Slate tile effect vinyl flooring is laid throughout and heating is again provided by storage/convector heater.

Next to the kitchen is a modern bathroom clad with contrasting gray and black wet-wall lining throughout, comprising a white WC and wash hand basin, plus a bath with shower over. Decorative tile effect vinyl is laid to the floor and there is a heated towel rail/radiator. The hall continues to the three bedrooms, all carpeted and heated by a panel heater. Bedroom 1, a single, faces west. The other two bedrooms are good-sized doubles, both having twin built-in double wardrobes. Bedroom 2 faces west. Bedroom 3 faces east. Finally there is a handy separate toilet by the entrance door, with white WC and wash hand basin, and slate tile effect vinyl flooring.



The property sits in a fenced garden area, a gate opening to a paved area which runs along the front of the house to the front door, the area to the side being laid with chips for low maintenance.

The path continues around the south side of the house to the side porch where there is a small south-facing decked seating area, and onwards right along the rear of the house to a side door to the garage where there is an external cold water tap. Behind the house is a lawn/drying green, also fenced, established shrubs and planting along the perimeter providing privacy, and a second raised deck seating area.

The single, semi-detached garage which measures approximately 5.25m x 2.85m (17’2″ x 9’4″), has an ‘up & over’ garage door as well as the side door, although the garage door requires repair/replacement.
