Larger than average house site estimated to extend to around 0.9 acres, in attractive rural situation overlooking the voe of Channer Wick in the South Mainland of Shetland, approximately 14 miles south of Lerwick.

Enjoying fine elevated views eastwards over the voe towards Broonies Taing & Noness in the distance, the site is situated off a quiet side road off the main Lerwick – Sumburgh road which offers easy access to the town and also the airport at Sumburgh, by car or by bus.

Outline planning permission for a single storey dwelling house was granted in January 2018.

Mains electricity and water services are understood to run through the site and a satisfactory percolation test was carried out in 2008 however prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the availability and suitability of service connections.

General Information
The plot is situated off a side road at Channerwick in the South Mainland of Shetland approximately 14 miles from Lerwick to the north and a similar distance from the airport at Sumburgh to the south.

Lerwick is within easy reach, by car or by bus, as the main bus route runs past the stop at the top of the road. There are a couple of local shops nearby, at Levenwick where there is also a doctor’s surgery and a fine sandy beach, and also Bigton, the access point for the spectacular sand tombola at St Ninian’s Isle. The main amenities in the area can however be found at Sandwick, just over three miles to the north, where there is another shop & post office, a school, and the south mainland swimming pool.

Channerwick is home to a handful of houses all of which are situated, like the site, on the hillside overlooking the Bay of Channer Wick, with fine views eastwards across to Broonies Taing & Noness in the distance.

The site slopes down towards the east and the south. It is presently unserviced but it is understood that connections to mains electricity & water services run through the site but in any case there are existing houses close by. A satisfactory percolation test for a septic tank was carried out in 2008. Prospective purchasers should however satisfy themselves in respect of any services required by contacting the relevant utility providers directly as no warranties will be given.
