Three bedroom detached house with an integral garage, conveniently situated close by the ferry terminal on the island of Bressay. The house sits in a good-sized garden and enjoys a south-westerly aspect and fine views across Bressay Sound to Lerwick and the harbour approach.

In addition to the three bedrooms, the single storey accommodation also includes a living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and sun porch. Heating is by electric storage heaters. The fenced garden which is mainly laid to lawn, provides plenty of outside space.

The regular five minute ferry crossing from Bressay takes you right to The Esplanade and the centre of Lerwick.

The property would benefit from updating which is reflected in the price.



There are entrances to the front and rear of the house, the rear entrance from the driveway opening to the attached garage where a door leads through to the kitchen. Note the garage door will require replacement.

The kitchen which has a window facing north-east and looking out over the back garden and the field beyond, has space for a small table and chairs, and fitted units including an integral fridge-freezer, cooker hood and sink although updating would be beneficial. The cooker and washing machine will be included in the sale although no warranties will be given.

A glazed door from the kitchen opens to a dining area off the living room, the dining area being lit by a ceiling panel to the loft space above. The living area has a wide floor-to-ceiling window enjoying the view south-west over towards Lerwick and the harbour approach. The freestanding fireplace which houses an electric flame effect fire is included although there is also a storage heater.

A second glazed door from the living room leads to a lobby with another floor-to-ceiling window to the south-west, and a large built-in cloak cupboard which also houses the meters etc. A further glazed door opens to the south and west-facing sun porch which provides a second entrance to the property.

Back off the living room to the rear is a hallway leading to the three bedrooms and a bathroom. Here there is a built-in shelved airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and a hatch to the loft space.

Bedroom 1 to the left is a south-west facing double room enjoying the view to Lerwick. It has a built-in wardrobe.

The bathroom comprises a three piece suite with electric over-bath shower although again updating would be beneficial. Heated towel rail.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both situated to the rear of the house with views over the back garden and beyond. Both have built-in wardrobes. Bedroom 2 is a single. Bedroom 3 is a double.



The property sits in a good-sized, fenced site which is mainly laid to lawn. In front of the house is a south/west-facing seating area bordered by established planting. The area beyond the fence in front of the house is also included. To the rear is a large area of lawn with drying green, a gravelled driveway, and cold water tap.
