Colossus, Warleggan
£200,000 : 1 bedroom apartment

Status: Available
Tenure: Leasehold

A choice of well established fully self contained apartments with accommodation ranging from a bedsitting room to two bedroomed. Warleggan is one of an imposing row of Victorian houses built of granite and known locally as “Schiller Row.” Named after the wreck of the German vessel Schiller which sank in the year 1875. The houses were built soon after using money donated by the German government as a thank you to the islanders for their help.

Originally a private residence, converted by the present owners in 1972 to a guest house incorporating their own private accommodation. A large rear extension was added in 1975 then finally in 1987 the whole house was converted into eight self contained apartments. The Owners now wish to retire from holiday management and so offer the individual apartments for sale.

The apartments have no specific conditions with regard to planning and therefore can be used, as they have been for many years, as lucrative holiday lets or alternatively can be
occupied as private residences. Warleggan is situated within Hugh Town with all its amenities close at hand giving an easy
walk to the harbour of St. Mary’s and the popular beaches of Town Beach and Porthcressa Bay.

Through the paved and planted fore garden bounded from the footpath by a low granite wall topped by wrought iron
railings, the imposing front door to Warleggan with its larger than life antique brass door knob leads you into:

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.
