Development potential

Waterside plot

Stunning sea views

Mundic bungalow

Moments from the beach

A fantastic waterside development opportunity (STP) with stunning sea views and just moments from the beach.

Gwyn Mergh offers an incredible opportunity to acquire an amazing position, with gorgeous sea views over Portreath Bay.

The current home is a well presented 2 bedroomed dormer bungalow with the presence of Mundic. The potential to take advantage of the commanding elevated plot and create a more dominant modern home is an exciting prospect.

The plot is to be sold without planning permission, however, a feasibility study has shown the potential for 2 townhouses, 4 apartments or a high quality replacement dwelling similar to a nearby development.

In recent years there has been an array of bespoke seaside 'dream homes' created on the quiet Battery Hill. The peaceful location, on a no-through-road further enhanced by the tranquil views have made this a hot spot to secure a waterside plot. It takes little imagination to see the incredible potential and different options for the plot to either tweak an existing home or start from scratch. The different levels of the current home offer a taste of the areas that should be utilised further to maximise the amazing outlook. Most notably on this surprisingly deep plot is the upper garden area that enjoys views over the roof tops from behind the property, perfect for an enclosed private terrace to the rear of the plot.

N.B. Cash buyers only due to the presence of Mundic.

N.B. See agent for further detail of feasible plot development options (subject to the necessary planning permission).
