It is difficult to convey the first class workmanship and thought that has gone into the renovation of Syllorga, by the owners, over the last ten years.
Part of Scillonian history, therefore Grade II listed, originally thought to be three cottages dating back to Medieval times. The second floor was added in the 1700s and in 1977 /1978 the kitchen extension was built and the fire escape from the second floor was added in 1982. Also in 1982 the ground floor shower room was built on the footprint of what was an existing workshop.
Syllorga is situated almost at the bottom of Garrison Hill and enjoys sea and harbour views from first and second floor front windows and views of Town Beach from the garden. The hill is virtually a service road for the three houses fronting and Tregarthen Hotel opposite.
Within the town and therefore a few minutes walk to shops and other local amenities whilst also a few minutes walk to the harbour of St. Mary’s.
Briefly the alterations carried out by the owners have included new windows – new kitchen – new bathrooms – complete and comprehensive rewiring including under floor heating to the ground floor and the re-modelling of the decked areas at the rear.
In the lounge area is a solid fuel (wood) burning stove by “Log Barn” and in the dining room area is an Esse stove / range again using solid fuel (wood). The granite alcove enclosing the range has an oak beam above recessed lighting and cupboards either side (one housing the electric meters). There are three window seats built into the massive granite walls. Wall thermostats at either end of the room controlling the under floor electric central heating. Twenty three 13amp power points and ten 5amp power points (for table lamps). Television sockets at either end of the room.
Small Lobby from where a pine door gives access for maintenance purposes to an outside enclosed yard.

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.
