Situated in an elevated position within Hugh Town, St. Mary’s with views over the town, harbour and Porthcressa bay from the lounge windows and balcony, which are difficult to improve upon.

The property was built approximately fifty five years ago, the accommodation is arranged on four levels. There are balconies at first and second floor levels which afford excellent views from the front of the property. At the rear there is a small sheltered south facing decked garden in the lee of the Garrison wall which fully encloses the rear of the property.

Extensive alterations were carried out by the present owner approximately fourteen years ago which resulted in the division of the house into two entirely self contained residential / holiday let units. One, “Little Bella” occupies the ground floor whilst the other “Bella Vista” occupies the remaining floors. This gives a would be purchaser a number of choices of residency / letting. At present Little Bella is for sale with vacant possession whilst Bella Vista is shown by the letting agency as having a minimum of twenty four weeks reserved for the forthcoming season thus giving an approximate gross return of £27,500 for the year.

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.
