The space
Built in 2008 to a high standard, Gerdi sits within 1/2 acre of rough grass and well maintained flower beds - not common in Shetland - with willows providing shelter.
There is disabled ramp access to the ground floor which consists of kitchen/dining room, living room, 2 double bedrooms (one with en-suite), bathroom and utility room.
The kitchen is well equipped with electric hob and fan oven, microwave, fridge\freezer and dish washer. There is a separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.
The living room has 2 large windows giving panoramic sea views with comfortable seating for 6, but will accommodate more. Both double bedrooms have large built in wardrobes with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower and toilet.
Upstairs there is a spacious twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower and toilet.
Outside there is a flower garden as well as a drying green and an area of natural grassland.
Otters have been observed just below the house and birds of all types can be seen and on one memorable occasion a humpback whale feeding in the voe was viewed from the living room window.

I'm Iwona, born in London with Polish ancestry, I'm married to Neil who has Shetland ancestry. We moved to Shetland in 2004 with our 2 children, now grown up, and started crofting. We try to embrace a sustainable lifestyle by growing as much of our own fruit and vegetables as we can, as well as keeping sheep, chickens and goats - I make cheese and soap from their milk. I have a successful arts and crafts business which includes dying and spinning our sheep's fleece which I then knit or felt. We also share our home with 3 dogs and 3 cats
