Flat 4 is a fully self contained second floor flat which is part of a classical terraced town house Grade II Listed and built in the early 1800s.

The house was converted by the present owners into four fully self contained apartments and is now offered in impeccable order throughout. Typical of the era the house has spacious rooms and high ceilings and many of the original features have been retained giving the house the character it deserves.

At present Flat 4 is let as an individual apartment on a holiday let basis but could let on a shorthold tenancy or lived in permanently.

Church Street lies just outside the main town of Hugh Town, St. Mary’s and is therefore a level walk to all the islands amenities including nearby beaches and the harbour.

The property is approached over a small fore 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.
