A well known former clubhouse is among a number of auction lots going under the hammer, many of which are owned by Cornwall Council 

Cornwall Council has instructed auctioneers to sell the former clubhouse with potential for development.

Stennack Clubhouse, near Park Avenue in St Ives, has a freehold guide price of £100,000 plus in the sixth auction of 2021 by the regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.

Senior auction appraiser Katie Semmens said: “This is a well-known former clubhouse with shops, restaurants and beautiful sandy beaches all within walking distance.

“The property offers clear potential for residential development, subject to the necessary consents, and already has favourable pre-application advice from the council. We are expecting keen interest in this property with plenty of potential in one of Cornwall’s most popular locations,” she added.

As well as this Cornwall Council has also instructed the auction of a parcel of land next to 74 Trelawney Avenue in St Ives.

The site, measuring 0.09 acres (0.03 hectares) has a freehold guide of £50,000 plus. Both lots are being auctioned jointly with Vickery Holman Property Consultants of Truro.

Thirdly going under the auctioneer’s gavel is a three-bedroom detached house with a freehold guide of £350,000 plus at 70A Treverbyn Road, St Ives.

Ms Semmens said: “This is an extremely well-presented, modern house in a great location with ample parking.

“It has decent sized accommodation throughout and a pleasant, covered seating area outside ideal for alfresco dining. It would make a lovely family home.”

The house is being auctioned jointly with Humberts of Truro.

Further up the county, a ‘charming’ one-bedroom cottage with potential in St Austell is heading to auction with a freehold guide price of £65,000 plus.

The terraced property is at 2 St Peters Hill, High Street. 

Senior auction appraiser David Henwood said: “While this charming property requires a programme of refurbishment, it offers plenty of potential.

“This includes the possibility of reconfiguring the first floor to create a second bedroom, subject to the necessary consents.

“Post improvement works, options include resale, owner occupation or retention as a letting investment.

“With recent industry data for the South West indicating that the average gross yield was 5.8 per cent in the first seven months of 2021, it is clear that property remains an incredibly strong investment choice.”

And a parcel of land to the rear of 16 Penwithick Road in Penwithick, has also been placed for auction by Cornwall Council. 

Measuring 0.06 acres (0.02 hectares), it has a freehold guide of £10,000 plus.

It has 161 lots on offer in its next auction.
