Providing detached accommodation all on the one single storey level, ‘Rockville Cottage’ is a two bedroom property conveniently situated in a large mature garden in the centre of the village of Sandwick by the local shop and post office, a short stroll from the local school and swimming pool, and also on the Lerwick-Sumburgh bus route.
In addition to two bedrooms, the uPVCdouble-glazed accommodation also includes a living room, kitchen and bathroom, with heating by electric storage heaters, a solid fuel stove in the living room providing a cosy alternative heat source. In recent years the insulation has been extensively upgraded with a number of walls being re-lined and insulated.
The fenced site provides ample parking and plenty of outdoor space including a large paved patio area behind the detached garage/shed.
The property would make an ideal first time buy or would suit anyone looking to downsize, with the benefit of amenities including the shop and swimming pool close at hand, and good bus access to Lerwick.
The main entrance to the house is via a double glazed uPVC door to the front which opens to a hall with original painted doors to the two bedrooms and living room, fitted shelving for boots etc., and vinyl flooring, a hatch with pull-down ladder providing easy access to a massive amount of storage space in the fully floored loft which extends the full width of the house and has lighting fitted.
Both bedrooms are carpeted and heated by a storage heater. The main bedroom is a large dual-aspect double room with windows to the west and north and a painted wood ceiling. The second single bedroom has a window facing east with fitted bookshelves below.
The good-sized living room also benefits from a dual aspect, this time with the windows to the south and west, a ‘Morso’ solid-fuel stove set in a brick faced fireplace surround providing a cosy heat source but there is also a storage heater. A shelved recess provides space for books etc., and there is a satellite TV connection, wood effect laminate flooring and painted wood ceiling. A door at the rear of the living room opens to a lobby leading through to the kitchen, with door to the bathroom and full-height double glazed uPVC back door to the garden.
The fitted kitchen has an integral oven and hob, plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included), inset sink and titled splash backs.
