Full Details

Higher Bal is a small collection of homes huddled together just ¾ of a mile west of St Agnes village centre. It enjoys wonderful rural surroundings and abuts a pathway that leads to the coast ½ a mile away and the popular beaches of Chapel Porth and St Agnes are approx. 2 miles away. This easily accessible setting is central to the north Cornish beaches at Porthtowan and Perranporth and is just 4½ miles from the A30. This means that major towns of Redruth, Camborne and Newquay are all within an 11 mile radius, whilst 10 miles away is the city of Truro, the county’s main commercial and administrative centre with a wide range of schooling, recreational, health and shopping facilities.

The Land
This enclosed former vegetable garden lends itself to a variety of uses such as an allotment, parking or amenity land. We are advised that there was once a garage on the site, but this is long since gone. A planning application for a detached dwelling was made in 1990 under Application No. C1/OP25/1035/90, which included the neighbouring garden and was refused, noting that it was within an Article 4 Area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and an Area of Heritage Coast.
