Workshop / Potential Development Site

St. Mary’s
Isles of Scilly
TR21 0JQ

For Sale by Sealed Bid Tender

The building, which is constructed of corrugated asbestos sheets lined internally with wood panelling, occupies an undeniably favoured position fronting the promenade at Porthcressa Bay.

Having 8’0” wide doors to the road and a concrete floor and adequate lighting and power supply, the building would make an ideal workshop.

Alternatively, subject to planning consent, there is potential for residential development.

Enquiries have been made of the local Planning Authority and we have attached a three page letter in response reference PA/20/063 “change of use of workshop.”

Externally the site measures 40’3” x 14’7” and internally the workshop is divided into a store room – an office – workshop – separate w.c.

Should a purchaser be contemplating residential development it may be useful to know that in 2005 a party wall agreement was entered into with the owners of the adjoining laundry / flats and part of that agreement included the removal of any roof overhangs, rainwater pipes, ventilation ducts and satellite dishes.

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.
