IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RELAXED WAY OF LIFE IN A VERY
CHARACTERFUL COTTAGE WITH VIEWS TO DIE FOR AND A GARDEN TO RIVAL TRESCO AND LASTLY (PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY) A LARGE WORKSHOP, GLASSHOUSE AND MAN SHED THEN YOU HAVE FOUND IT AT TREVEAN COTTAGE, ST. MARTIN’S.

We think there were two cottages originally built in excess of 250 years ago. The present owner bought Trevean in 1991 and spent ten years in restoring and modernising the interior. The extensive works included new floors, new internal linings to the walls including built in insulation. Installation of UPVC windows and doors and a very comprehensive new electrical installation.

The Vendor is a keen gardener and gardens, which slope away from the cottage in a south easterly direction, are a cornucopia of sub tropical plants and flowers almost throughout the year.

From the first floor windows there are views across the garden looking over Higher Town Bay and quay and in the distance the Eastern Isles and the island of St. Mary’s.

Though one of the larger off islands, St. Martin’s has a resident population of less than 120 people. It is, therefore, a quiet island with plenty of open space outside the three settlements and landing quays at Higher Town, Middle Town and Lower Town. St. Martin’s is often regarded as having the finest beaches of all the Islands and other amenities include
Karma Resort, a five star hotel, The Sevenstones public house, a newly built community centre incorporating a fitness
room, badminton court and meetings rooms, sub post office, general store, craft, bakery and greengrocers There is also a
primary school and Church of England and Methodist churches.

There are two accesses to Trevean. One is approached via the driveway between the house and the garage / glasshouse whilst the other separate access is approached alongside the eastern gable end and through the front garden. This latter approach is at present used by guests to the property whilst the former is used by the owner.

Details

VIEWING STRICTLY BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT ONLY
THROUGH THE ABOVE AGENTS.

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.
