Exciting and unique opportunity to purchase this former school, now converted into an attractive 2-bedroomed semi-detached house with an abundance of character. This 1½ storey property is decorated with modern furnishings, while still maintaining the features of the school – including built-in wooden classroom partitions. Not only would the Old School make a lovely family home, the property would also make brilliant self-catering accommodation due to its history and charm. The Firth Old School is set in a good-sized garden with sea views, and viewing is highly recommended.
The Firth Old School is stone-built and was erected circa 1900. The building comprises of the old school itself, and the old teacher’s house next door. While this property is being sold separately to the neighbouring house, both properties are currently on the same title. There is no fence indicating the boundary, however the garden of the Firth Old School is approximately 12 metres from the north east wall. Shared parking is located roadside with room for around a dozen vehicles, extending down to a layby where the memorial commemorating the infamous ‘Delting Disaster’ is situated.
Some work has been carried out on the property since it went on the market; pointing the exterior walls, and new guttering. This will be reflected in an updated Single Survey, to be completed in due course.
The sale of the Firth Old School includes all fixtures, fittings, curtains and blinds. The white goods are also included in the sale.
The Firth Old School is situated in Firth, Mossbank, in the North Mainland of Shetland. The village of Mossbank has a primary school and children’s playpark, both just a few minutes’ walk from the property, a public house, shop and Post Office, and a community hall where the local youth club operates from.
