Situated on a picturesque, sloping site finishing at the shoreline, this three-bedroom, bungalow is surrounded by mature trees with stunning, uninterrupted sea views across Scalloway Harbour to the island of Trondra, Port Arthur and the outer Isles.

Benefitting from a beautiful vista the Property does require extensive updating and renovation. The garden grounds have been landscaped previously and would require freshening up with the outbuildings/Boathouse requiring extensive work to bring them up to usable spaces.

The village of Scalloway is close by with all local amenities, such as, grocery shops, nursery, primary school, health centre, pharmacy, swimming pool, community hall, museum, local artis gallery, restaurants and pubs, to list but a few. Lerwick is just 7 miles away on the east coast of the mainland that also has the above amenities and more.

This Property presents an ideal opportunity for a professional couple, young family or those looking for a renovation project in an idyllic setting.

At the bottom is a parking area with a semi-gravelled/grassed drive leading around the dwellinghouse. Ample off-road parking.

A dominant feature throughout the property are the balustrades and urns defining tiered areas within the garden. One area provides for a private divide from the neighbouring property with its mature trees and bushes. There is a patio area at the front providing for alfresco dining throughout the summer months whilst enjoying the stunning sunsets and views to the west.

Near this shed is an iron gate leading to the entrance to the derelict greenhouse. Only some outbuildings can be opened.

From the tiered areas to the front of the Property, there is access to the shingle foreshore, Boat House and derelict pier (which would require an extensive upgrade), together with a concrete plinth with flagpole.
