Full Details

The picturesque port of Portreath on the north Cornish coast is approximately 2.7 miles away, whilst closer to hand are the shops and amenities of the busy village of Illogan, approximately 1 mile away. For a wider range of shopping schooling, health and leisure amenities, Pool and Redruth are less than 3 miles away. The County’s main arterial route, the A30, is accessible 3 miles away at the Tolvaddon junction, which means that Truro is easily commutable at approx. 10 miles away.

The Property
Described by the planning department as a derelict former mine worker’s cottage, Conditional Planning Permission was granted on 16/11/2020 to rebuild the property. The planning application reference was PA19/10430 and a Certificate of Lawfulness was granted on 04/04/2024 confirming that the Local Planning Authority are satisfied that development has materially commenced.

The drawings provided for that planning application allow for a detached dwelling with a lounge/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom at ground floor with two further bedrooms at first floor. Full details of the planning consent and conditions are available on Cornwall Council’s planning portal.

The cottage is set to the corner of a plot extending to approximately 1 acre, which has a direct private access onto the Old Portreath Road.
