Offers Over £199,000



Great opportunity to acquire a large well-kept commercial premises in a prime town centre location. Having previously traded as the ‘Havly café’ the property is currently class 3 use (food and drink) and is now available immediately with vacant possession. The property is in a great location for trading just up from Commercial Street (Lerwick’s main shopping street) or alternatively the property has potential for conversion to residential or other uses subject to obtaining the usual consents required from the local authority.

9 Charlotte Street is a semi-detached one and a half storey property and heating is supplied by the district heating scheme via a wet radiator system.

The Property consists of: Ground Floor – Dining area, public toilets (with accessible W.C), kitchen and Laundry/ cleaning area. First Floor – Office and attic storage area.

Externally there is an attached single garage which can be accessed from the rear of the café. The attached neighbouring property 7 Charlotte Street is also for sale on a separate listing on our website. However should a potential purchaser wish to purchase both properties this would be the preferred option for the sellers. The option to purchase both properties presents a great opportunity to run a business out of number 9 whilst using number 7 as a residence.
