Charlie's Cottage
£265,000 ono : 3 bedrooms

Status: Available
Tenure: Freehold

A piece of Scillonian history. This original granite built fisherman’s cottage was built together with it’s neighbour
probably in the late 1700s to mid 1800s.

It appears to have had originally only one room on the ground floor with two bedrooms above, subsequently extended in granite to double its size. Thereafter in more recent years further extend at the rear to provide a kitchen and bathroom.

The cottage stands behind it’s own small fore garden and fronts a single track vehicular access which serves adjoining properties and finishes as a cul de sac at Buzza Hill.

As can been seen from the attached plan Charlie’s Cottage is within 100 yards of Porthcressa Beach / Bay and within easy walking distance of St. Mary’s shops, public amenities and harbour.

Internally the cottage requires a full restoration and perhaps extension (subject to the necessary permission being received) but we would suggest when completed could be a very pretty cottage with excellent accommodation and very conveniently located.

The accommodation comprises:
On the Ground Floor
From the front a gateway through a granite wall leads through the fore garden to the front door.
Living Room 15’8” plus alcoves to either side of the fireplace X 12’0” plus shallow bay. Tiled fireplace. A staircase
leads from the living room to the first floor. A door at the rear of the living room gives access into:
Dining Room 13’0” X 10’0” An Aga or Rayburn is set into the fireplace.
Kitchen 9’0” X 6’6” The kitchen is fitted with purpose built oak units with panelled doors including a matching wall
cabinet. The floor cabinets have a dark melamine working surface and there is an inset single drainer stainless steel sink unit.
Bathroom which is “L” Shaped 6’7” maximum (4’11” minimum) X 6’5” Fitted with panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c.
A door from the kitchen leads into:
Veranda / Store 8’8” X 6’6” Having a translucent panelled roof and a door to the rear yard.
On the First Floor
Bedroom 1 (Rear) 13’6” X 10’0” In one corner is the combination hot water cylinder.
Bedroom 2 (Front) 12’7” X 9’9”
Bedroom 3 (Front) 8’2” plus a shallow bay window X 5’10”

bounded by granite walls and the bathroom wall.

The information given in these particulars is intended to help you decide whether you wish to view this property and to avoid wasting your time in viewing unsuitable properties. We have tried to make sure that these particulars are accurate, but to a large extent we have to rely on what the seller tells us about the property. We do not check every single piece of information ourselves as the cost of doing so would be prohibitive and we do not wish to unnecessarily add to the cost of moving house.

Once you find the property you want to buy, you will need to carry out more investigations into the property than it is practical or reasonable for an estate agent to do when preparing sales particulars. For example, we have not carried out any kind of survey of the property to look for structural defects and would advise any homebuyer to obtain a surveyor’s report before exchanging contracts. If you do not have your own surveyor, we would be pleased to recommend one.

We have not checked whether any equipment in the property (such as central heating) is in working order and would advise homebuyers to check this. You should also instruct a solicitor to investigate all legal matters relating to the property (e.g. title, planning permission etc.) as these are specialist matters in which estate agents are not qualified. Your solicitor will also agree with the seller what items (e.g. carpets, curtains, etc) will be included in the sale.
