Flat 8 forms part of a building which was originally built as a number of impressive three storey granite built town houses. Many years ago they were converted to “Springfield Hotel” and in more recent years converted again to provide a number of spacious flats arranged on three floors.

The flats are arranged in groups of three, each group having its own separate access. The ground floor flats are approached from the front whilst the first and second floor flats are approached from the rear.

Flat 8 occupies a position on the centre floor and thus has the advantage of additional protection and insulation from the flats above and below and to either side.

As can be seen from the Photograph, a particular feature of Flat 8 is its large square first floor bay window which gives the opportunity for southerly views up and down Church Street from the lounge whilst at the rear there are views of the harbour and across to the islands of Samson and Bryher from the kitchen.

The accommodation comprises:

All flats at Springfield Court, and Flat 8 is no exception, have large spacious rooms with high ceilings associated with the period.

The approach to the first and second floor flats is via a vehicular driveway which passes down the side of Springfield Court. A short footpath then leads along the rear of the property and at various points three external staircases give access to the first and second floors. Flat 8 is approached from the third staircase which leads through a partly glazed door into:

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.
