Recently renovated three bedroom house with large detached garage in excellent condition throughout, 'Heimdal' is a single storey detached house set within a large site with uninterrupted views situated in the popular village of Quarff, just seven miles south of Lerwick.

The property faces South East and has an open outlook across Easter Quarff and outwards towards the sea in the distance.

The property is in “walk-in” condition having been recently refurbished to a high standard including a newly fitted kitchen and partition walls altered to make the house more open plan. ‘Heimdal’ is a well insulated home, fully double glazed and heating is provided by a combination of new Dimplex ‘Quantum’ storage heaters and panel heating.

Externally there is a detached garage with electric garage door, lawns to the front and rear, an extensive parking area and a garden shed. There is also a sheltered timber decking area and a patio to the rear which are lovely places to sit and enjoy the fine views.

Planning permission and a building warrant are in place to erect a 30m2 single storey extension to the North elevation which would add a fourth bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and En-suite. The plans can be viewed on the Shetland Islands Council’s website in the search planning applications section by using reference 2018/292/PPF.


Quarff is a wide-spread village which lies just seven miles south of Lerwick and is within easy commuting distance of Lerwick with all of its amenities. Thus making it an attractive place to live given the remote and rural feel but only minutes away from Lerwick.

Primary schooling is provided a few minutes South in Cunningsburgh with school transport available. Secondary schooling is either at Lerwick or Sandwick.
