Property Description
You may have heard the term “island lifestyle”. It refers to a way of living that is associated with being located on an island, characterised by a relaxed, laid-back pace, a close connection to nature, and a strong sense of community. For many people, this phrase will conjure up images of places like Hawaii or Tahiti, however you can experience this idyllic lifestyle much closer to home, just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall in fact, on the Isles of Scilly. This listing is located on St Mary’s, the most populated island on the archipelago. It is a light and spacious one-bedroom apartment, which forms part of a handsome, Victorian terrace which was once the grand ‘Springfield Hotel’. From the rear of the property, you can catch glimpses of the picturesque harbour, and watch the Scillonian Ferry as it comes and goes. We highly recommend booking an appointment to view at your earliest convenience.


Discover the Isles of Scilly, a hidden gem off the coast of Cornwall! As beautiful as anywhere you will find in the Caribbean or Mediterranean, these stunning islands offer crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches, and lush landscapes. Just a short flight or ferry ride from Penzance, the Isles of Scilly are the perfect paradise right on our doorstep.

St. Mary's is the largest and most populated island in the Isles of Scilly. It serves as the central hub of the islands, boasting the main harbour, and is also the administrative and commercial heart. St. Mary's is known for its stunning landscapes, with sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, and picturesque coastal paths. Visitors can explore historical sites like Star Castle and the ancient burial chambers at Bant's Carn. The island's mild climate and diverse flora and fauna make it a unique and appealing destination for nature lovers and history enthusiasts alike. In terms of amenities, you will find a number of charming local shops, public houses, and restaurants.

The Property

As you approach the property along Church Street, its kerb appeal is undeniable. The front stone elevation, adorned with finely crafted cut granite lintels and quoins, and traditional-style box sash windows, exudes character and charm. The entrance to this top floor apartment is from the rear.

Our favourite room in this charming property is the open-plan reception area, a delightful space perfect for cooking, dining, and entertaining. This room boasts two windows that provide lovely views up and down pretty Church Street, flooding the space with natural light and a sense of tranquillity.

The spacious bedroom is another highlight, offering a wonderful view towards St Mary's Harbour. Imagine waking up to the sight of the Scillonian ferry as it comes and goes—a captivating scene that we must admit had us transfixed from the moment we first visited. Finally, we come to the good size bathroom.

The accommodation would benefit from updating throughout but is brimming with untapped potential and ripe for transformation. In the world of real estate, terms such as "prime location" and "great potential" are often overused, yet for this particular property, they are truly fitting. What an opportunity!
