Formerly used as a children’s home by Shetland Islands Council and situated within the old town centre conservation area, Leog House was built circa 1900 and is a Class C (S) listed building. The renovation has been done in sympathetic fashion to preserve the original features of the building, whilst providing bright, spacious rooms with modern amenities. There are five, two-bedroomed flats in total, each benefitting from its own entrance. This flat has the additional benefit of its own rear porch leading to the garden.
The large, 3-storey building is of traditional masonry construction with a slate roof, and benefits from double glazing throughout. The property has been fully relined and insulated with thermal and acoustic insulation to building warrant standard. Each flat conversion has electric storage heating provided by a combination of Dimplex Quantum storage heaters and Dimplex panel heaters. There is a satellite dish and TV aerial, with individual outlets in each flat. The five flats share a large lawned garden enclosed by masonry walls which provides a pleasant outdoor space for the use of all residents. There is a public carpark to the rear of the property with space for several vehicles. The two external stores to the south of the property belong exclusively to Flat 1.
