Not only that it’s the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world!

Red Squirrels

Have you ever wondered why we are called Red Squirrel Property Shop?
Well, as I’m sure you all know Red Squirrels are local to the island, they are fast, effective and hardworking. A lot like the team at Red Squirrel Property Shop. We wanted to associate our business with the recognisable Red Squirrel because it’s personal to the Island.

Layout, room sizes, flow. Sometimes we weigh up the pros and cons and opt for internal specification rather than external aesthetics.
One property I recently visited was in an unusual location– in a graveyard. I found the interior of the property a delight, with its light and bright shabby chic style, at complete odd to the rather ‘gothic’ exterior surroundings of tombstones.
