Breckon is in Gulberwick, a settlement on the outskirts of Shetland’s capital. Within close travelling distance of Lerwick, while being situated in a more rural environment with sea views, Gulberwick is becoming an increasingly popular area to live in.

Gulberwick is great for young families in particular and has a thriving community hall, playpark, and an attractive beach all within a short distance by car from the property. Both primary and secondary school transport is provided by Shetland Islands Council, and Breckon is just a short walk from the bus stop. There are regular bus routes to the south mainland as well as Lerwick and all of the amenities that the town has to offer.

For these reasons, Breckon is also in an ideal location to cater for tourists, with the attached flat making an excellent self-catering unit or Airbnb.

The sale of Breckon includes all fixtures and fittings. Some furniture may be available to purchase by separate negotiation. The property would benefit from modernising which is reflected in the price.
