A unique and rare development opportunity to put a new lease of life into this large historic property, believed to have been built circa 1880, located in the heart of Sandwick. The inside of the property has been stripped to the original stone walls exposing the roof joists, floors and fire places.

Richard Gibson Architects (www.rg-architects.com) by complementing the existing building and through careful design have produced inspiring, modern plans.

There is current Planning Permission and change of use Building Warrant in place to develop the main building into two bespoke, contemporary, semi-detached dwellinghouses. The Workshop also has Planning Permission for a further one bedroom home.

This property is situated next door to the Sandwick Primary & Junior High School and Leisure Centre. It is within easy distance to the local bakery, grocer, Post Office, play parks, football pitch, community hall and sailing club. Sandwick is approximately half way between Sumburgh Airport to the south and Lerwick some 20 minutes to the north with a good bus service between the two.

This property presents an ideal opportunity as a development or renovation project.

Main building: Large open area and four separate rooms.

Workshop: Two rooms and WC.

External: Bounded by stone dykes and partial wood slat fencing, the grounds provide for ample off road parking with some grassed areas and would benefit from landscaping. Part of the north east area is subject to vehicular and pedestrian access rights for the neighbouring property.

For the avoidance of doubt, the property is being sold in its present condition and no warranties are to be given.
