Set in a ½ acre established garden, ‘Mala’ is a particularly attractive, completely renovated, three bedroom detached house just 1½ miles from the ferry terminal on the island of Bressay which lies just across Bressay Sound from Lerwick, the regular ro-ro ferry which runs throughout the day, taking just five minutes to reach the centre of town. A further acre of croft land adjacent to the house is also available.
Completely gutted in 2008/9, the extent of the renovation work is such that the property effectively offers a modern fully double glazed home within a traditional exterior. Benefitting from oil-fired central heating, the accommodation comprises a living room, sun porch, kitchen/diner, bedroom, shower room & utility room on the ground floor, plus two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
The attached garage could potentially be converted into additional living accommodation (subject to consents). The large garden provides plenty of outdoor space, the extra land would provide scope for a polytunnel, growing produce, keeping poultry etc.
The property was totally renovated by the current owner in 2008/2009, the original house having been taken right back to the external walls. It was completely re-roofed, and re-lined and insulated internally with ‘Kingspan’ effectively creating a modern house within the existing traditional shell.
All the services including a new septic tank and the central heating/hot water system date from that time, although a new boiler was installed in 2017. New uPVC double glazed windows were also fitted. There is a satellite dish with connections to the living room & kitchen.
The intention was to extend the living accommodation into what is presently the garage, this space already having uPVC double glazed windows to two sides, the present garage door opening intended to be replaced by large patio doors, any alterations would however be subject to the usual consents required and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.
The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, the curtains & blinds, and light fittings. The free-standing white goods and some of the furniture are available by separate negotiation.
