Remote Island Retreat in the UK

Asking $150,523 USD

Wanna get away? This one may be on the remote Shetland Islands (closer to Norway), but it's got everything you'd need to live a comfortable life. The commanding views of the countryside and Loch of Littlester are spectacular. And just imagine what the northern lights would be like around there! *sigh*

From the Listing

"Presented in immaculate 'walk-into' condition, 'Roseville' is an attractive detached cottage in the village of Burravoe at the south end of the island of Yell, set in a large ¼ acre plus garden. The property faces south enjoying spectacular panoramic views over the Loch of Littlester and surrounding countryside, and also over to Yell Sound to the south-east in the distance.

Included with the property is a substantial 7.7m x 5.8m detached garage / workshop with twin electric doors and massive hobby / storage space above which would make a great home office space.

The recently re-decorated double / triple glazed accommodation comprises a sittingroom, attractively fitted kitchen with breakfast bar and range cooker, stylishly re-fitted shower room and porch / utility area on the ground floor, plus three bedrooms, all facing south and enjoying the views, upstairs.

A regular ro-ro ferry service runs from Ulsta 4 miles from the house to Mainland Shetland, the crossing time being just 20 minutes although Yell has its own leisure centre / swimming pool, health centre & Junior High School (Primary 1 to Secondary4), plus several local shops."
