Broad Street, Penryn

£350,000

Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An extremely substantial 3-storey building, close to the centre of this rapidly expanding university town, partially reconstructed to an apparently high standard, comprising a large ground floor retail/commercial area, together with independently accessed first and second floor accommodation which, seemingly, can be converted into 2 flats, subject to any additional consents. Furthermore, there is a large walled garden area to the rear which, we understand, benefits from access off Commercial Road, within which there may be potential for the construction of a further dwelling/dwellings, subject again to all necessary consents being obtained.

THE LOCATION

23 Broad Street is situated in a prominent position close to the 'entrance' to this rapidly expanding university town, within easy walking distance of the town centre in one direction, and Penryn Quay and River in the other.

The university at Tremough continues to bring many people to the area with the campus an approximate twenty minute walk away, also easily accessed by regular bus services. Falmouth, recently voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, is approximately two miles distant, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's legal, administrative, retailing and commercial centre, is approximately ten miles, with regular rail service from Penryn to both Falmouth and Truro.

THE PROPERTY

23 Broad Street has been the subject of an extensive but, as yet, incomplete programme of refurbishment works which have been carried out to an apparent high standard and which include: a new roof with lead work, new windows and sills, rewiring, new plumbing in readiness for a central heating system, new pine flooring to the first and second floors, new stairwell providing independent access to the upstairs accommodation, and the installation of an emergency lighting system. The ground floor commercial/retail premises includes a store room, kitchen, outside WC and rear access to the garden and parking beyond. The first and second floor accommodation is in 'shell' form, particularly to the first floor, thus providing a future owner with the opportunity to complete the works to their own standard and configuration, subject to any necessary further consents being obtained.

Furthermore, the property benefits, we understand, from access off Commercial Road which leads to a parking area and now overgrown rear garden, adjacent to which new houses have been constructed in recent years. No approach has been made by the agent regarding this land which, together with the rest of the property, is to be sold 'as seen' for the entire freehold interest.
