Situated in the centre of Hugh Town, St. Mary’s yet in a quiet backwater fronting the pedestrian footpath called Well Lane aptly named due to the site of a water well opposite the property which many generations ago used to serve the residents of the town.
On the site of Prospect Lodge was originally a granite barn which the present owner demolished approximately thirty years ago and built Prospect Lodge, in 2004 the rear extension was added. The construction is part granite and part blockwork with a traditionally pitched slated roof.
Well Lane joins the high street with Garrison Lane and the property is therefore ideally situated being a level walk to all the town’s amenities.
As will be seen when viewed the property has been exceptionally well maintained and its well planned accommodation would admirably suit a growing family.

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.
