Porthloo, St. Mary's, Isles Of Scilly

PRICE GUIDE £1,500,000.00

A superbly located detached property arranged as artist's gallery, three self-catering apartments, versatile three bedroom owners' accommodation and garden studio. The property sits within landscaped gardens which we are advised is approaching half an acre, with further development potential, subject to all the necessary consents.

A fabulous lifestyle opportunity available for the first time in over fifty five years due to the owners' retirement plans.

Glandore Apartments and Gallery enjoy a fabulous coastal position, just a fifteen minute walk around the coast path from Hugh Town, the “capital” of St Mary's. Hugh Town offers a range of shops and services, as well as transport connections to the mainland and off-islands. St Mary's Airport is situated approximately one mile away, connecting to Penzance, Lands End, Newquay and Exeter.

Glandore is an extensive property of, we are advised, some 316 square metres, arranged over four storeys. In addition to the owners' accommodation and long-established Glandore Gallery, it includes three self-contained apartments, named after local Pilot Gigs – the six oared seagoing rowing boats used to ferry pilots out to ships in days gone by. They are:

-Slippen - a one bedroom garden apartment, with private patio and garden area.
-Serica - a second floor one bedroom apartment enjoying balcony and sea views.
-Golden Eagle - a two bedroom duplex apartment, again with balcony and sea views.

SELLERS INSIGHT
“Glandore was purchased by the our family in the mid 1960's when it was leasehold and a private house. Since then, it has undergone many changes and improvements, including acquiring the freehold and purchase of additional land from the Duchy of Cornwall. It has provided us with an income to this present day and has operated in its current form as apartments and gallery since the year 2000.
It is a highly flexible property that could be reinstated into a substantial individual dwelling, or retained as a home and income. Freehold properties of this size and location do not often come onto the market on the Isles of Scilly”.
