Enjoying a sunny southerly aspect and magnificent views over open countryside and the Pool of Virkie towards the airport and Sumburgh Head, ‘Karinya’ is a three bedroom detached house set in an attractive mature garden approximately 25 miles south of Lerwick at Exnaboe in Virkie.
In addition to three good-sized double bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, the accommodation also includes a bright living room with large window making the most of the views, a kitchen/dining room, family bathroom with bath and separate shower plus a handy box room which could potentially be converted into a study or en-suite (subject to consents). Mature garden areas to the front and rear, and single garage with power.
The house which was completed in 1975, is double glazed and heated by an ‘Electricaire’ storage unit in a cupboard off the hall which provides ducted warm air throughout the house.
The property requires some updating which is reflected in the price but nonetheless would provide a lovely family home with the benefit of the enclosed garden and fine views.
The property sits in a well-established site estimated to extend to just over ¼ acre or thereby which is enclosed on all sides by a wall. Access is via a long driveway which leads up the single garage, a path from the driveway leading to the front door and continuing around the house. Immediately in front of the house is a large rockery and front lawn with established planting along the perimeter screening it from the roadside. Further lawned areas to each side and the rear. The garage has an ‘up and over’ garage door, power and lighting and cold water tap.
Amenities in the immediate area include a local shop and post office in the nearby village of Toab, a marina and boating club at the Pool of Virkie, a hotel and the airport for air travel to mainland Scotland. There is another local shop at Dunrossness (with fuel) about three miles to the north which is also the location of the area’s primary school; secondary pupils going to Sandwick or Lerwick. Buses to Lerwick and Sumburgh run along the main road a short distance from the house.
