With a stunning, very spacious interior with lots of character and some original features remaining, this is a detached former church building believed to date from the late 1880’s which is understood to have been converted into a house around 1980. In the North Mainland of Shetland, ideally situated for easy access to Brae, Sullom Voe and the Gas Plant, Lerwick is approximately 26 miles.
The double glazed accommodation benefits from oil-fired central heating supplemented by a solid-fuel stove in the main 22′ x 20′ sittingroom space which leads through to a further similarly sized kitchen/dining room, both rooms wood-lined, each having a stair leading to the four bedrooms on the first floor (two each side), the remaining accommodation to the rear comprising a family bathroom with bath and separate shower, a separate toilet and utility area. The large porch to the west side of the property could potentially be used as a study area.
The sale will include all carpets and other fixed floor coverings, blinds and light fittings
The property sits in a fenced site, a large tarred area in front of the house providing extensive parking. At the rear is a lawn/drying green, seating area, wooden garden shed and cold water tap. The site also includes the semi-circular area bordered by the main road to the east.
‘The Old Firth Kirk’ is situated on the edge of the village of Mossbank in the North Mainland area of Shetland approximately 8 miles north of Brae and 28 miles north of Lerwick. There is a local shop just down the road whilst in the village itself a short distance from the house, is the local primary school. Further amenities are however available in Brae, the main population centre in the North Mainland area, where there is a High School (school transport is provided), swimming pool and leisure centre, health centre and small supermarket. Buses run from Mossbank to Brae and Lerwick several times a day including a morning and evening commuter service.
