The Lounge looks out over the housing scheme to Firth Voe. The Dining Kitchen is dual aspect with a good range of wall and base units, an electric cooker, washing machine and tumble dryer. Off the kitchen there is back porch/utility area with back door out to the garden. The fridge and freezer are presently housed in this utility area, and there is also a door to an under stair storage cupboard. The Shower Room has a white hand basin and toilet, with ‘wet room’ shower area. There is also a separate WC with a toilet and hand basin.   Bedroom 3 could also be used as a study.

The staircase, Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 2, all have Velux windows. Bedroom 1 is bright and airy, looking out over the housing scheme to Firth Voe, with a large storage cupboard in the eaves. Bedroom 2 has a similar storage cupboard. On the top landing, between both bedrooms, are two large storage cupboards: one a shelved linen cupboard; the other housing the hot water tank.

The grassed garden area extends to three sides of the house, and has benefitted from the addition of 25 tonnes of topsoil.
