Establishment Overview

59 King Harald Street is the ground floor flat of an Edwardian villa. It is in part of the New Town of Lerwick which was developed in the late 19th and early 20th century. This house, named ‘Houll’, was completed in 1912.

The house was bought in the early 1970s and has been thoroughly renovated and well maintained since then. There is an established garden at both front and rear of the flat.

The accommodation consists of a 2-bedroom ground floor flat with a living room, double bedroom, twin bedroom, dining room with sofa bed, fully fitted kitchen and bathroom with bath and shower overhead. It is a large, spacious property centrally located with plentiful parking available.
