Selkie Stanes is an immaculately maintained four bedroom property with stunning sea views.

There is a small entrance hall, leading through a second door to a very spacious hallway. All rooms lead from this hallway, which has two built in storage cupboards. There is also a roof hatch to a partially floored loft.

The lounge is a bright, well-lit room, with full height window, enjoying the beautiful views. The attractive kitchen-diner has a good range of wall and base units, with plenty of worktop space, a double oven and ceramic hob with concealed cooker hood and stainless steel splashback. There is plumbing for a washing machine, dishwasher and space for a fridge-freezer. A door from the kitchen leads into the large double garage, and into the sun room which has double glazed windows on two sides enjoying an uninterrupted view and also houses the central heating boiler. It has been suggested this room could also be used as a hobby room, a gym or for additional storage.

There are four attractive well presented bedrooms, one presently being used as a study. All of these have built in wardrobes along the length of one wall, and one of the bedrooms has an extra wide door for wheelchair access.

The bathroom has been newly refurbished with white three piece suite and shower. There is also a separate toilet with two piece white suite.

The entrance to the property is over a cattle grid, with tarred driveway and parking.  The property also accommodates a double garage with single up-and-over door operated by electric remote control (the second door could easily be reinstated if required) with attached sun room, and a separate recently erected wooden shed. The garden ground, of approx. half an acre, is to the front and back of the property and is mainly grassed with wooden fencing. Along the back of the house there is a wide paved path, and ideal place from which to sit admiring the stunning views of the Bay of Quendale, Lady Holm, Fitful Head and as far as Fair Isle on a clear day.

Viewing is highly recommended. Scatness is approximately 30 miles south of Lerwick, and near to Sumburgh airport for air travel to mainland Scotland.  Amenities include the Sumburgh Hotel, a marina and boating club at the Pool of Virkie, and a local shop and post-office in the nearby village of Toab. The village of Dunrossness is approx. 3-4 miles north, where a second shop with fuel pumps can be found. The area’s primary school (with swimming pool) is located here, with secondary school pupils going to Sandwick Junior High or Anderson High in Lerwick. There are buses between Lerwick and Sumburgh at regular intervals.
