Gunner Rock
£625,000 : 3 bedroom house and 3 bedroom
self contained apartment

TENURE: Freehold
PRICE: £ 675,000 or nearest offer

Gunner Rock was built in 1973 and occupies a position almost at the head of a quiet cul de sac on the eastern side of Hugh Town. The fourteen houses which make up Jacksons Hill are all large and detached and have mostly been designed to suit the original sloping hillside site and to take advantage of the sea and island views where possible. Gunner Rock has sea views from the lounge and some of its bedrooms.

Originally constructed over three floors, within the last six years the Owners have spent a considerable amount of money on redesign and refurbishing to provide a totally self contained apartment on the lower ground floor whilst retaining a spacious three bedroomed residence on the ground and first floor thus providing themselves, and any future owners, with a most useful and easily managed income from the apartment whilst retaining the option of further income from bed and breakfast accommodation within the main residence.

The design is such that the two parts of the house are entirely self contained including separate accesses and both have a pleasant garden area. Included in the refurbishment were UPVC double glazing to all external windows and doors and tasteful and expensive internal fittings including hardwood doors etc.

Gunner Rock, Jackson's Hill. TR21 0JZ



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.
