To include the property as described on these details

If you are looking for a Guest House in this price range then you really must view Crebinick House.

Floor Plans
 

In the rear garden planning consent has recently been obtained to erect two ground floor self catering suites.

The original part of Crebinick House constructed of granite with a scantle slated roof was thought to be built as a double fronted cottage in circa 1760 and it retains much of its charm
and character. Many additions and alterations have taken place including large extensions at the rear which now provide the spacious accommodation as described later in these details.

The property fronts Church Street and forms part of a row of typical granite built Scillonian houses. Church Street links Hugh Town with Old Town and at this point a level walk will
give you access to two of the most popular beaches of St. Mary’s being Porthcressa Bay and Town Beach whilst similarly all local shops and the harbour itself are within easy reach.

The present owners have managed Crebinick House as a most successful Guest House for the past thirty years, ill health has resulted in a deliberate relaxation of guest numbers over the past two to three years however, as will be seen from the audited accounts the opportunity, by a new owner, to optimise the occupancy potential will be obvious.

When viewing, an intending purchaser will immediately be impressed by the immaculate presentation of the property
internally and externally, improvements have included all UPVC double glazed windows and doors with the exception of the front elevation which are hardwood double glazed sash windows.

The Guest House has Freeview televisions to all rooms whilst the owners apartment has Satellite television connected. Guest rooms have tea making facilities, clock radios, hairdryers and other amenities which have resulted in the business receiving a Four Star Silver Visit England award, a Visit England breakfast award and a rating of Four Star by the AA. There is a full fire alarm system and emergency lighting system which has been installed and serviced by Firecrest of Cornwall and the total electricity circuit has been overhauled and modernised within the last three years and holds current certificates.

VIEWING STRICTLY BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT ONLY
THROUGH ISLAND PROPERTIES.

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.
