Introduction (Subject to all the necessary Planning consents)
This rare project and development opportunity has an array of potential. There are endless possibilities, but in our opinion, one can look at renovating and restoring the property to its former glory or a brand new 4 bedroom semi detached three storey victorian style house, (subject to all the necessary planning consents). The vendor is in discussion with architects to get drawings for knocking down and re-building with ample parking.
Located about 200 yards from central village amenities and the harbour front, this very rare opportunity has obvious potential, subject to any necessary consents. The property is suited towards the permanent or second home-owner, developer or builder looking for a project.
The property has captivating panoramic views encompassing Place Manor, the Percuil River, St Mawes Harbour, Summers Beach, St Anthony National Trust Headland and out to Falmouth Bay. The views offer an ever-changing scene of activity all year round.
Our client recently purchased Number 8 this year when it became available on the open market. Previously, the property had been in the same ownership for over 30 years as a well loved holiday home. The property has been well cared for and retains period details but would now be considered ready for renovation.
