Detached three bedroom property in an attractive rural location at the end of a side road just over three miles from the centre of Brae and amenities including the High School, leisure centre & Co-op mini-supermarket.
The property enjoys a southerly aspect and stunning views over Mangaster Voe.
The accommodation currently comprises a kitchen, bedroom (or 2nd reception room), bathroom and utility room on the ground floor plus a living room, two bedrooms and a toilet upstairs.
The property sits in around ¼ acre although the site requires development.
The property requires extensive repair including the likelihood of some structural work, and modernisation, which is reflected in the price.
Due to the condition of the property a home report is not required.
The property is situated just over three miles north of the village of Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland area and the location of the area’s main services and amenities, these including a High School providing nursery, primary and secondary schooling, a leisure centre / swimming pool, health centre (including dental suite) and Co-op mini-supermarket. There are also several other local shops, a garage, award winning fish & chip shop, hotel and bar.
The location of the property means it is well placed for access to oil and other related industries at Sullom Voe oil terminal and the Shetland gas plant. Lerwick is also within easy commuting distance.
The property is being sold in its current condition and no warranties will be given in respect of any contents or services. The property is clad with Sullom blocks which can suffer from a degenerative condition. Prospective purchasers seeking more advice in this regard should discuss with a surveyor / builder etc. Drainage is to a septic tank although this is in poor condition.
Entry is via a side porch which leads to a hall passage with two cupboards, one for coats etc. and the other housing a hot water tank, and doors to a kitchen with windows to the front and side enjoying the views, a dual-aspect double bedroom or second reception room to the rear, and a further lobby by the stairs to the first floor, with second entrance door, leading to a bathroom and utility room.
Upstairs there is a living room with windows to the south and west again making the most of the fine views, two bedrooms, a toilet with WC and wash hand basin, plus a large eaves store cupboard.
