Quendale House could soon be a house again if plans to turn it into a private dwelling are approved.
Lerwick Community Council discussed designs to convert the listed building, recently used as office space, back into a single dwelling on Monday evening.
No objections were raised at Monday’s meeting – community councillor Averil Simpson voiced her support, labelling it “excellent”.
Chairman Jim Anderson said it was “certainly a nice spot”.
The category B listed building sits within the Lerwick Lanes Conservation area and was built in 1865 as a new family home for Quendale Estate laird Andrew Grierson.
More recently Shetland Islands Council owned the building.
The planning application submitted by Malcolmson Architects on behalf of Hannah Nelson is pending approval.
