Situated in an unrivalled prominent location on Bodmin’s main thoroughfare, the property requires general repair or is ideal for redevelopment. Vacant possession with no chain.
St Leonards is part of the main route through rapidly expanding Bodmin, the former County town of Cornwall. It is one of Cornwall’s oldest towns where the architecture of many of the buildings demonstrates the town’s past importance, especially during the 19th Century when it was the administrative centre of the County. The town is rapidly growing, recognised as it has been for centuries, for its central location within the region. A huge range of shopping, schooling, health and leisure amenities will cater for most daily requirements, whilst the main A30 skims the eastern fringe of the town, meaning traveling within and around the Duchy could not be easier. The iconic Bodmin Moor extends to the north, whilst the Camel Trail, a wonderful cycle trial extending all the way to the historic port of Padstow on the Camel Estuary is nearby.
For decades this property has been a much-loved filling station and convenience store. Today, it is a vacant 160sqm (1,722sqft) two storey freehold premises, last used as a retail shop after the selling of fuel ended in 1999. Others may see potential for redevelopment (subject to planning). The property is vacant and there is no chain.
