Enjoying spectacular views eastwards over the West Voe of Sumburgh to the airport and Compass Head, and westwards over to Quendale Bay, Seaview is a ‘walk-into’ three bedroom, two bathroom detached cottage set in a large garden.

The single storey, double glazed accommodation also includes a dual-aspect living room and a very spacious kitchen/dining room with wide picture window making the most of the views. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower, and one of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room. The house sits in an immediate garden area of around 1/3 acre with gravelled parking and shed with power.

The local shop and primary school are just three miles away, and the airport is easily accessible for travel to Mainland Scotland.

The property is being sold complete with all contents and furnishings which would be of particular interest to first time buyers, or anyone looking for a rental/holiday property.

The property has been re-roofed and had new double glazed uPVC windows and doors fitted since the owner’s purchase in 2009. Central heating is provided by electric storage panel heaters, most of which have been replaced with the latest Dimplex Quantum and Q-rad units.

The property is being sold as is with all furniture and contents included, including all kitchen appliances, floor coverings, curtains and blinds, and light fittings.

The entrance is around to the east side of the house, the door opening to an entrance lobby with quarry tiled floor and glazed inner door to a hallway laid with tile effect vinyl flooring. Glazed doors to either side open to the kitchen/dining kitchen to the right, and a further hallway leading to two of the bedrooms, the bathroom and living room to the left. At the end a further carpeted lobby with two built-in cupboards, one shelved, the other housing the electric meter and consumer units etc., leads to the third en-suite bedroom.

The kitchen is a lovely bright room, the main feature being the wide picture window which enjoys the stunning view of the beach at West Voe and beyond. This generously proportioned room has plenty of space for a table and chairs in the centre, and extensive fitted units around three walls provide a huge amount of cupboard and worktop space, the units being attractively finished with colourfully tiled splash backs and including an inset sink, two cooker hoods over the dual-fuel range cooker, and several glazed cabinets with integral spotlighting. All the appliances including the range cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer are included although no warranties will be given. Lighting is provided by several ceiling mounted spotlights, a wall light plus a centre light over the dining area. The vinyl flooring matches that in the hallway. A built-in cupboard houses the ‘Megaflo’ hot water tank.

Situated opposite the kitchen is a further hallway laid with wood laminate flooring which leads to the living room, an attractive room benefiting from a dual-aspect with windows to the south and east. A contemporary style electric flame effect fire provides an alternative heat source although there is also storage/convector heater. Wood laminate flooring, centre light and matching wall lighting.

Next to the living room is bedroom 1, a south-facing double room with wood laminate flooring, and then the family bathroom comprising a white three piece suite plus a tiled shower enclosure with glazed screen door. Mirror light fitting over the wash hand basin, ladder style heated towel rail radiator and tile effect vinyl flooring. Finally also off this hallway is bedroom 2, a carpeted double room, also south-facing, this room benefiting from a substantial built-in double wardrobe concealed behind sliding mirror doors and fitted with shelf and hanging space, additional storage being provided by separate shelved cupboard.

Finally at the end of the main hallway is the west-facing carpeted third bedroom which enjoys a lovely view over to Quenadle Bay and the island of Lady’s Holm. This room has its own en-suite shower room, attractively finished with tiling to the shower and around the WC and wash hand basin which are set in a fitted unit which conceals the cistern and also provides handy cupboard space below the sink which again has a light mirror fitting over. The shower is fitted with a ‘rainfall’ shower head and separate hand held fitting. Ladder style heated towel rail radiator, and tile effect vinyl flooring. Hatch to the loft space.



The property sits on a large site estimated to extend in total to around ½ acre or thereby including the access, the garden area surrounding the house, which is mainly laid to lawn, extending to around a 1/3 acre. The site includes the access from the public road along with the verges to either side, the track leading into the main garden area and finishing at a gravel parking area outside the front door. There is a garden shed approximately 4.4m x 2.7m (14’6” x 9’) with power and lighting.

The neighbour has access rights over the track, and the adjoining crofter has access to the land to the north via the gate in the far north-western corner of the site. The area of ground immediately to the east of the site was fenced-in many years ago and has been maintained by the current owner since their purchase in 2009. However this land does not form part of the property, the eastern boundary of the site running along the east side of the parking area.
