A fantastic opportunity to purchase this mid-terrace, two storey, two bedroomed property situated at the end of the Queens Place and Gardie Lane tenements and benefits from its own rear garden with drying green.

The property is dated and requires renovation and modernisation and this is reflected in the price but has potential to make into a beautiful home.

A short walk down the lanes will take you to Commercial Street with all its retail outlets, general stores, restaurants and cafes. It is also close to Scalloway Road which provides a good bus service to all communities within Shetland, together with town service that runs throughout the day.
