Pine Lodge
£625,000 ono : 4 bedrooms
Tenure: Freehold

This spacious split level detached residence was built approximately 45 years ago and occupies an enviable position in a quiet cul de sac on the eastern side of Hugh Town - a few minutes walk from shops and all island amenities. In addition, the property is only a few hundred yards from one of the most popular beaches on the island of St. Mary’s and there are panoramic views across Porthmellon beach to the islands of Tresco and Bryher from many of the property’s windows. In more recent years virtually all the windows and doors of the property have been replaced with UPVC double glazing.

A viewing of the property will immediately make clear to any interested parties the excellent specification and construction. The architect design has cleverly made use of
the sloping site resulting in a house of family proportions with attractive features both internally and externally. The room layout on the ground floor and the present two way access to the house make an easy option (subject to any necessary planning consents) to divide the ground floor thus forming a self contained annex ideal for holiday letting or separate family accommodation.

The first impression of this property is that of a “Swiss chalet” being designed with its gable elevation to the road and this attractive feature, together with the thoughtful use of
natural materials including granite, white rendering and dark timber, complemented also by a full width first floor balcony all combining to produce an individual residence of some charm and character.

The property is bounded from Jackson’s Hill by a high granite wall which, as well as providing an attractive entrance, has the practical effect of being the retaining wall for the sloping concrete pathways and drive which gives access to the front of the house.

The accommodation comprises:
A Georgian style UPVC door with double glazed side lights
leads into:
Central Reception Hall 13’10” x 6’5” plus a recess for coat
hanging space. Double panelled radiator. Four recessed
ceiling down lighters. Two power points.

At the far end of the reception hall, through a feature arch, is a circular stairwell having sculptured walls and a spiral staircase of solid granite treads cantilevered into the wall. Concealed fluorescent lighting is hidden under a circular pelmet.

An internal door leads into:

French doors to the full width front balcony. An undoubted feature of this room is the mock fireplace which is set into a

Having a length of approximately 105’0” and a width of approximately 43’0” the garden is laid to terraces which we feel sure will be a delight to any aspiring gardener. Pathways wind their way through an irregular shaped naturally stocked borders having many varieties of sub tropical shrubs, flowers and trees. There are three grassed areas together with a secluded and paved patio area which we are told is a veritable sun trap.

There are two timber garden sheds, one to the side of the house and one at the top of the garden.

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.
