Full Details

Wheal Rose has rapidly become a popular residential location, as confirmed by the amount of development in the area in recent years. It is the central location with ease of access that is so appealing with Redruth and its wide range of schooling, shopping, health and commercial facilities being less than 3 miles distant, the scenic coastline and beach of St Agnes 3 miles to the north, Falmouth harbour and Penryn university campus 10 miles to the south, the A30 less than half a mile away and Truro, Cornwall’s principal town, approximately 8 miles away.

The Property
This largely level site is surrounded by mature trees creating a sheltered and enclosed plot. The previous conditional planning consent was granted on 07/08/2020 and has now expired, Planning Application No.: PA20/01640. Approval in principle was given for two 4 bedroom detached houses, and a pair of 3 bedroom semi-detached houses, all with
garaging. Copies of Mining Report, Bat Survey, Foul Drainage Assessment, Contaminated Land Report and Japanese Knotweed Survey, along with various others, are available for inspection on the Cornwall Council Planning portal.

This site has the potential to become a very special and exclusive development and is an opportunity not to be missed!
