Situated in the heart of the community of Walls on Shetland’s Westside, Stove Buildings looks down over the Walls Voe and out to the Island of Vaila. Walls is on the well-serviced main bus route to Lerwick, the Island’s main town, 25 miles to the east. Several local amenities are located within five minutes’ walk of the house: the excellent primary school, local shop, craft bakery, swimming pool, public hall, churches, marina and boating club. Coastal walks, outdoor activities and opportunities for nautical activities abound.
This is a good opportunity to purchase a substantial, large house withgreat development potential. Building on the work completed so far, new owners would be able to ‘stamp their mark’ on the project to create a very light, spacious and flexible home. Alternatively, it would lend itself to conversion into two smaller units, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The current internal layout of Stove Buildings, which would be very adaptable, consists of 6 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, 3 small kitchens, 5 bathroom/shower-room/toilet facilities and a utility room. Two-thirds of the building has been re-windowed with hardwood double-glazed units and a new roof-covering was added in 2017. Boundary fences have recently been completed. Current heating is by solid fuel stoves and electric panel-heaters.
An adjoining plot of land amounting to approximately one third of an acre, containing a derelict croft house and with its own private access, might be available by negotiation.
Driving west through the village of Walls, turn right at the sign for Sandness. Drive up the hill and turn right into the Stove Cottages sheltered accommodation. Stove Buildings are straight ahead on the right hand side.
