5 Burgadale is a three bedroom semi-detached property in a particularly leafy part of the Burgadale estate. The Burgadale houses are part of a residential estate conveniently situated right in the centre of Brae, the closest main population centre to the Sullom Voe oil terminal and the gas plant, on the north side the main road through Brae. The house is therefore ideally placed for easy access to amenities including the swimming pool and leisure centre, the High School which provides nursery, primary and secondary schooling, and also the Co-op mini-supermarket. Other amenities, again within walking distance, include the health centre (including dental suite), ‘Frankies’ award winning fish & chip shop, a couple of garages, builder’s merchants and pub.
There is a children’s play area close by the house, and, being away from traffic, makes this an ideal home for a young family.
In addition to three bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and has been used as a dining room, the accommodation also includes a south-facing living room, kitchen-diner and two shower rooms. Lots of storage space is provided by box rooms on each floor, and also the loft. Heating is by electric storage heaters.
The property would benefit from updating which is reflected in the price but nonetheless offers a great first time buy opportunity.
Entry to the property is from the front or rear, entry to the front is from a parking area to Runafirth from where a footpath leads to a fenced and paved front garden bordered by established flower beds, leading to a front porch with uPVC double glazed door, and inner door to the hall with doors to all downstairs rooms and a built-in shelved airing cupboard housing the hot water tank, and a storage heater. Entry from the Burgadale side is via a further paved back garden area, also fenced, the back door opening to a rear lobby and the hall.
The carpeted living room is a bright room with wide triple window to the front of the house facing south, and a storage heater. On the other side of the hall is a ground floor bedroom which has been used as a dining room, again with south-facing window, pine ‘v’-lining below the dado rail being a feature. This room has wood laminate flooring and storage heater.
Behind the dining room is a box room providing useful storage space and also housing the electric fuse boxes etc., and a wet room style part wet-wall lined, part tiled shower room with electric shower, WC and wash hand basin with fitted cupboard space below. Light/shaver point and heated towel rail.
Finally on the ground floor is a good-sized kitchen-diner with window overlooking the rear yard, space for a small table and chairs and fitted units to two walls including an integral hob and sink plus plumbing for a washing machine, although replacement units would be desirable. Storage/convector heater and clothes pulley.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a second shower room with shower cubicle with electric shower, WC and wash hand basin, Velux window and heated towel rail/radiator. Plenty of additional storage is provided by another box room.
Both bedrooms have Velux windows, the main bedroom to the right having a large eaves storage cupboard. The second bedroom is a single.
Externally the property has fenced, low maintenance, mainly paved garden areas to the front and rear, the back garden including a shed/greenhouse although this is in poor condition, and a rotary clothes dryer. There is a public parking area outside the house.
