Positioned to take full advantage of the fine sea views, ‘Kirkwood’ is a recently completed ‘Scandinavian’ style single storey detached house in an attractive rural setting in the picturesque village of Hoswick within easy reach of Lerwick (approx. 13 miles).
Benefitting from electric under floor heating and Argon gas filled double glazed windows, the property is in immediate ‘walk-into’ condition with all floor coverings already in place.
The three bedroom accommodation also includes an extremely spacious 28′ x 20′ living/dining room/kitchen, a fantastic room with wide floor-to-ceiling window making the most of the views and patio doors to a large timber deck, plus a family bathroom and separate utility room.
The Sandwick area has a wide range of amenities including a shop and post office, Junior High School and also a swimming pool, all within reasonable walking distance.
Newly completed from a highly insulated 8″ timber frame/timber clad kit, the property benefits from Argon glass filled uPVC double glazed windows and under floor electric heating throughout, each room having its own individually controllable thermostat, a wood burning stove in the living room providing a cosy alternative heat source. Hot water is provided by a highly efficient ‘Ecocent’ tank with an in-built air source heat pump which utilises waste air from the bathroom. There are ethernet points to all rooms plus a satellite TV point in the living room.
The property sits in a good-sized garden with parking for a couple of cars, a concrete path to the entrance door (a chipped path will be laid around the remainder of the property). The remainder of the site will be graded. Access is via a track shared with one other property.
‘Kirkwood’ is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Hoswick which overlooks Hoswick Bay and is part of the wider Sandwick area which lies midway between Lerwick, 13 miles to the north putting the town within easy commuting distance either by car or by bus, and the airport at Sumburgh, 13 miles to the south.
The property is well catered for in terms of amenities. There is a visitor’s centre/tearoom close by the house, additional amenities at Stove about ½ mile from the house including a shop, post office and bakery, Junior High School catering for nursery, primary and secondary pupils to year 4, older pupils go to Lerwick, and also the South Mainland swimming pool, all of which are within reasonable walking distance. There is also a youth and community centre, garage and social club while slightly further afield, Sandsayre Pier at Leebitton is the departure point for boat trips to the island of Mousa and its famous broch.
