Greenhill is situated approximately 8 miles north of Lerwick, in the quiet rural area of Breiwick, Gott. The property is within easy commuting distance of the town, and just under 30 minutes from Brae, Sullom Voe Oil Terminal and the Gas Plant further north.

There are not many houses in this part of Gott, giving the area a rural community feel to it. Gott is in the Parish of Tingwall, in the central mainland of Shetland, which has a playpark, community hall, and primary school with a nursery department. There is also a church, garden centre, cattery, dog kennels and garage as well as a small airstrip which serves as a link to the outer isles. Secondary pupils go to Anderson High School in Lerwick and school transport is provided by Shetland Islands Council.

Greenhill benefits from double glazing throughout and oil-fired central heating, with underfloor heating in the lounge extension (completed 2012). Many improvements have been carried out on the property in recent years; a new condenser boiler was installed in 2015, a new Megaflow tank in 2016, and some new windows and doors have been installed. Greenhill was re-harled in 2014 and the Decra roof was replaced in 2006.

The sale of the property includes all fixtures, fittings, curtains and white goods.
