Unique opportunity to acquire a house site right in the heart of Lerwick’s town centre, a short stroll from shops, café’s etc. on Commercial Street and the Small Boat Harbour, with detailed planning permission already in place for a four bedroom detached home.

Designed by local architects Née Gibson, the proposed accommodation comprises a living room, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom, shower room and utility room on the ground floor, plus three further bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

The orientation of the house allows for views over the surrounding area across to Bressay, particularly from the upstairs rooms.

Servicing the site should be relatively straightforward as connections are understood to already be on the site although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

 

Information

The site is situated in a great, very central Lerwick location in the Lerwick Conservation Area, a short stroll through the historic Lodberries area to shops and cafés etc. on Commercial Street and the Small Boat Harbour.

The site is bounded on the north-east and south-east sides by Leog House which has in recent years be re-developed as residential flats, and a small car park, by the footpath running between Leog Lane and Greenfield Place/Greenrig to the south-west, and by a stone dyke to Greenrig. Vehicular access is from Leog Lane, whilst a footpath down Greenrig and into Stouts Court provides a short cut to Commercial Street.

The site has detailed planning permission for a four bedroom, detached house designed by local architects Née Gibson. Details of the planning permission (Ref: 2022/074/PPF) including plans can be found on Shetland Island Council’s website.

The design places the house on the south-west side of the site maximising the garden area in front and also allowing for views over the surrounding properties across to Bressay particularly from the upstairs rooms. The external finish is wet-harled blockwork with additional natural larch/cedar timber boarding as a feature, all below a natural slate roof.

The well-designed accommodation is arranged over two floors, the ground floor comprising a living room, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom, shower room and utility room, the main rooms all looking out over the garden area, with three further bedrooms all with windows enjoying the view, and a bathroom upstairs.

It is assumed that services connections should be relatively straightforward as it is understood that service connections, including telephone, are situated under a manhole cover in one corner of the site however prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard by contacting the relevant utility providers directly.

Vehicular access is from the car park behind Leog House on Leog Lane.

The purchaser will be responsible for complying with all conditions noted in the planning permission.

Two further photos are on the Agent’s site showing the shoreline, within close walking distance from the plot.
