Set on its own in an unusually large 1.2 acre site, the house enjoys fine views of the Loch of Scattlands to the east and westwards over the surrounding countryside and across Yell Sound to the east coast of the very northern tip of Mainland Shetland. A short walk from the house takes you to one of Shetland’s finest sandy and secluded beaches.
‘Lochanlea’ is a detached three bedroom house with a substantial 39′ x 19′ garage/shed.
In addition to the three bedrooms, the single storey, double glazed accommodation also includes a living room enjoying views to the Loch of Scattlands, kitchen/diner enjoying the views to the west, shower room and utility room. Central heating is provided by an external oil-fired boiler. The property would benefit from updating which is reflected in the price.
‘Lochanlea’ is situated in the small picturesque settlement of Westsandwick on the west side of the island of Yell, the larger of Shetland’s North Isles which sits between Mainland Shetland and the neighbouring island of Unst.
Measuring around 19 miles long by 7½ miles wide, Yell has a population of around 900. Westsandwick lies approximately mid-way between the ferry terminal at Ulsta to the south (5 miles) where there is a local shop with fuel pumps, and the main population centre at Mid Yell to the north where the island’s main amenities can be found, these including a small shop, Junior High School, leisure centre and swimming pool, medical centre including dental surgery, LJ’s restaurant/diner, a pier and boating club.
A regular 20 minute ro-ro ferry service runs throughout the day from UIsta connecting Yell with Toft on Mainland Shetland which lies about 10 minutes from Brae and Sullom Voe, and approximately 27 miles north of Lerwick.
