Description

Formally a detached residential property, Clinton House was a long established care home trading until closure at the end of 2016.

The property had been the subject of various modifications, extensions and improvements over the years and latterly was registered for up to 46 elderly clients in 45 rooms of which 18 have en suite facilities, some with showers and five of which have full wet rooms.

The internal accommodation is conventionally laid out over ground and first floor levels with a passenger lift providing access to the first floor whilst the principal day rooms are all located on the ground floor with a recently added commercial kitchen, associated storage and ancillary areas can be found on the lower ground floor. The interior of the property retains a number of the original features including a large attractive staircase, high ceiling rooms and original fireplaces.

Access to the property is via two entrance drives leading to a parking area to the front of the building with further space to the side. There is also an attractive garden at the front which is well screened with a number of well established trees.

Location

Clinton House is situated on Truro Road, one of the main roads leading into the town centre and lies to the north western outskirts.

St Austell town centre has a number of retailing, service facilities, other large employers and is also located near to the Eden Project visitor attraction. The town also benefits from a main line railway station on the Penzance to Paddington line. St Austell is one of the principal towns in Cornwall and lies approximately five miles inland from the South Cornish coast and stands in the A390 trunk road which connects eastwards to Liskeard and onwards to the A38 at Plymouth and to the west, is some 15 miles from the Cathedral city of Truro.

The town is also situated approximately 10 miles south of the A30 trunk road, which is the main spinal route connecting Cornwall to Devon and the national motorway network at Exeter.

Internal Details

The accommodation is conventionally laid out over ground and first floor levels with 22 bedrooms being located on the ground floor - nine with en suite, five of which include full wet rooms - and 23 on the first floor, again nine with en suite facilities some of which include showers.

Other internal accommodation is as follows:

Main entrance/reception
Various offices
Quiet lounge
Main lounge leading to dining room with dumb waiter to kitchen
Further lounge
Offices
Communal bathrooms and various WCs
Commercial kitchen
Storage
Staff room
Cellar housing boiler room
Laundry with associated storage

External Details

The property stands to the rear of the plot with the majority of the gardens to the front where they are mainly laid to lawn and well screened by established hedging and trees.

The driveway has two access points on Truro Road and leads to the front of the property where there is parking for a number of vehicles around to the side where further parking is available.

The Opportunity

The availability of Clinton House to the market represents an excellent opportunity for an existing care home operator in the area to re-establish the home as one of the principal homes in the area.

Whilst some refurbishment and potential reconfiguration may be required, the size, scale and layout of the property makes it an attractive proposition for any would be owner to re-open the home that has been established in the town for a number of years.

There is also the potential to redevelop the site, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Regulatory

We understand that Clinton House was previously registered with CQC for a maximum of 46 clients although since closure this registration will have lapsed.

Therefore any party wishing to re-establish the property for care use will need to make their own enquires of CQC prior to committing to purchase.
