Enjoying fine views over the surrounding farmland to the Pool of Virkie and out to sea in the distance, ‘Braeview’ is a detached two bedroom cottage situated in the small village of Toab. At the very southern tip of Shetland, approximately 26 miles from Lerwick, it is close to the airport and flights to mainland Scotland.
In addition to two double bedrooms, the accommodation which is all on one level, also includes a generously proportioned living room, good-sized kitchen/diner and bathroom with bath and separate shower. There is also a large porch and utility area. Heating is by electric storage/panel heaters.
The property requires some repair and updating which is reflected in the price.
The property sits in large site which is estimated to extend to around a ¼ acre or thereby, the site being enclosed by stone dykes or fencing. There is ample parking to the side and rear of the house which leads up to a large block-built detached garage/shed (approx. 6.95m x 4.95m (22’10” x 16’3″)) which has new ‘up & over’ garage door and power, and a large lawn to the east.
There is a local shop and post office in the village within walking distance and a boating club and marina nearby at the Pool of Virkie, further amenities including a mini-supermarket with fuel and the area’s primary school (secondary pupils go to Sandwick or Lerwick) being available at Dunrossness about 2½ miles to the north.
