Guide price

An increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a building plot in an attractive, semi-rural, hamlet setting, close to the well served village of Stithians, and within an approximate 20 minute drive of the port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro. Permission in Principle was granted in July 2022 with Technical Details Consent granted on 3rd April 2024 copies of which are attached.

The Permission provides for an attractive stone-fronted house with 3 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation, ample forecourt parking, an attached car port and level, well enclosed gardens. An ideal opportunity to create a lovely individual home.


The plot is situated to the eastern side of Pembroath Farmhouse, an attractive, detached, well maintained Victorian farmhouse. The proposed dwelling will stand in the former side garden area with, between, a double garage which provides a natural buffer, supplementing the established hedge, shrub and timber boundaries which combine to provide a good degree of privacy and shelter.

The hamlet of Trembroath comprises just a handful of other homes - a true, small, semi-rural community - accessed along a picturesque stream-lined lane which leads to the village and Truro in one direction, and the northern edge of Stithians Lake, Helston and Redruth, in the other.

The village, less than one mile distant, provides excellent day-to-day amenities including a parish church, junior school, public house, cricket club, general stores and regular bus service. The main mid and west Cornwall towns of Truro, Falmouth, Redruth and Helston are all within an approximate twenty minute drive, beyond which the county's beautiful coastline, sailing waters and excellent leisure amenities are all within easy reach.


Permission in Principle was granted on 26th July 2022 for .... a single residential dwelling on a parcel of amenity land within the small settlement of Trembroath .... - Cornwall Council Application number: PA22/03505.

Subsequently, Technical Details Consent was granted on 3rd April 2024. Copies of both Decision Notices are attached, full details of which are available in the normal manner on Cornwall Council's Online Planning Register.

The consent provided allows for a detached two-storey dwelling with a sunny south easterly aspect, an attractive stone-clad front elevation, matching quoins and lintels, and a pitched roof of natural slate.

The proposed dwelling has an internal floor area of approximately 121 sq m or thereabouts.

On the front boundary, a new gateway will open onto a broad forecourt which will provide ample off-road parking in addition to an attached car port, again with natural slate roof. Walling and a 1.8m high fence is to be erected along the shared boundary with Pembroath Farm.

The design has been 'led by the ambition' to provide a zero-carbon house including a high standard of glazing and solar panelling for energy generation. Furthermore, high levels of water efficiency are prescribed and the property will benefit from its own sewerage treatment plant.

Copies of the proposed elevations, floor plans and site plans are also attached, all of which have been obtained from Cornwall Council's web site.



We understand mains water and electricity are immediately available adjacent to the front boundary of the plot. A private water treatment plant is to be installed, full details of which are available upon request from the agent.
