Six years ago the present Owners set out to design a house that combines space and comfort with 21st century innovations. The new Wendy House has these attributes in bucket fulls.

Outer hall. Inner hall. Spacious family room incorporating - lounge / dining room / kitchen. Quiet lounge. Four en-suite bedrooms (two on the ground floor) Study. Utility
room. Cloakroom. Garage.

LOCATION:
McFarland’s Down is an area of St. Mary’s to the north of the island approximately two miles from Hugh Town and St. Mary’s quay. The road itself gives access to approximately twenty detached individually designed houses and bungalows which have mainly been built over a period of the last thirty to forty years. Not far from all the islands amenities yet off the beaten track McFarland’s Down appeals to people who wish to be away from main activities and yet within easy reach of them. An added advantage is the close proximity of one of St. Mary’s well loved coastlines, Bar Point, and views across the rear gardens to the Nor’ard Rocks.

The original Wendy House was built many years ago - eleven years ago the present Owners decided to totally rebuild the property and gave much thought to its new design and construction. The new Wendy House incorporates all the many modern labour saving conveniences that one would expect including double glazing, efficient central heating, bespoke fittings etc. whilst innovative ideas have also been incorporated including a complete audio system throughout all rooms, each room has CAT5 facility to connect to the CAT5 cable installation throughout the house allowing multi media / computer connections.

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.
