CHEAPEST FIVE BED HOUSE IN CORNWALL FOR THE PRICE OF AN EMPTY PLOT OF LAND. PRIME DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL: RARE OPPORTUNITY TO PUT YOUR OWN STAMP ON THIS 5 - 6 BED FREEHOLD VERY CENTRAL TOWNHOUSE WHICH HAS NOT BEEN AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE ON THE OPEN MARKET FOR THE BEST PART OF A CENTURY. I should know...after having enjoyed living here for over 38 years.
Located within two to three minutes of shops, doctors and
Wetherspoons Family Pub.
Returns of 15% P/A potential with six bedsit option.
Our town has a Railway station.....as little as 3.5 hours direct to Paddington ( we commuted for several years) and just 25 minutes to PLYMOUTH. All day parking at the railway is currently £2.10 ...better than Guildford's £13.50 which we paid some years ago!
We are relocating therefore we are seeking a swift sale and have thus reduced our price expectations
to facilitate a swift move.
We are selling very privately therefore few photos.
The master bedroom is pictured as well as Bedroom 4 on the top floor (currently a wardrobe room) and a few snaps of the ground floor.
Viewings may be requested at Request contact details
providing you have a serious interest in purchasing and have the cash to spare.
Three storey Townhouse in Cornwall just a few miles from the seaside.
Many interesting features revealed.
This was two cottages and could easily be returned to being two cottages.
Opportunity to purchase a large approx 80 foot by 35 foot attached garden from a willing separate vendor. The Garden is walled on two sides and is landlocked unless accessed from our yard.
"THE GOOD LIFE" BEGINS ...growing your own food :)
A future proof heating system with hot water and radiators has been installed in recent years. Solid fuel or wood. When the gas, oil or electric
prices rocket you will be OK
The property benefits from two copper telephone lines (one active)
and a Rare FTTP ( Fibre to the Property) installation ( recently inactive)
Three of the bedrooms are huge
Master Bedroom on middle floor: 14 foot 6 inches by 11 foot 6 inches approx. (insulated)
Bedroom Two on middle floor two size options. Approx 12 foot by 12 foot or put three joists in
to cover the lower stairs and it will make a 15 foot by 12 foot room
Bedroom three top floor 13 foot 10 inches by 10 foot 8 inches.
This third bedroom can easily be made into an 18 foot by 13 foot 10 inch room by removing a stud wall
Or the extra box room over the second set of stairs can be left which measures 8 foot by 7 foot after
leaving a walkway for the third bedroom
Fourth bedroom 9 foot 8 inches by 7 foot 9 inches
Bedroom 5 is 8 foot by 7 foot ( Box Room)
Bathroom is a wedge shape 13 foot 10 inches long by 6 foot 6 inches widening to 8 foot
Sitting room 11 foot 10 inches by 11 foot 9 inches
Kitchen/ diner/ sitting 17 foot by 12 foot
There were two sets of stairs
work was started to make larger rooms
by removing one set of stairs.
Currently there are still two stairs to the middle
floor and one to the top floor.
There are so many design options with this
building. It could easily make six bedrooms
Here are some options:
A/ One large six bedroom house (with one kitchen/sittingroom/diner 17 foot by 12 foot)
B/ two three storey cottages
C/ Three flats
D/ five or six bedsits sharing a bathroom and kitchen.
E/ Family home with Granny annexe
F/ Two bed self contained flat fetching £500
per month with the rest of the property for you and your family.
including the whole of the top floor.
G/ A four bedroom house with three bedrooms being rather large
How much you decide to spend is up to you.
Renovation and modernising is required in most of the property.
Most lath and plaster ceilings have been removed already
in preparation for new plasterboard ones.
We avoided a water meter by choice in case we ever sold.
Water rates have been kept at this property
for the last 38 years. This means for a fixed annual fee so
you can use unlimited water making it ideal for a large family
with no water meter to worry about. HOORAY FOR WATER FREEDOM.
Overall internal length of property on lower two floors is 35 foot 4 inches
at shortest and 37 foot one inches at longest point due to the garden facing wall having been built at an angle. ( You see this in Cornwall)
On the top floor the dimensions are about an extra 18 inches long
so circa 38 foot 6 inches internal length on top floor at longest point.
Surprisingly Quiet area of town although central to shops
Areas of yard and two sheds for storage.
Exterior tap installed.
We have a traditional hot tub in the yard but removing one of
the former exterior toilet sheds would facilitate a large family size jaccuzzi
The listing options limit the description choice. I opted for detatched as it always was a detatched property. However in recent years we allowed a neighbouring development to join
onto our property.
CASH SALE VIA MY SOLICITOR.
The basis for new ownership at this price is purchasing as a renovation project without most of the usual pedantic solicitor's questions which I do not have tolerance for. I purchased the property on an as seen basis myself after having been tenant since 1980. My deal was done and dusted in 33 days. I am seeking a sale similar to an auction where the property is known to need work and is not subject to the usual bureaucracy. Please be aware that If your nature is to cross all of the T's and dot all of the i's then this property is not for you. My solicitor handles all of the legal paperwork so rest assured. Thank you for taking a look. OIRO £150K
