RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SITE FOR NINETEEN DWELLINGS

In a fabulous rural location on the outskirts of this much sought after village of Ladock.
Planning permission has been granted for nineteen dwellings including nine spacious detached three, four and five bedroom open market houses and a mixture of ten smaller affordable houses and apartments.
Approximately 2.2 acres. A very rare opportunity not to be missed.

General Comments And Location - A very rare opportunity to purchase a residential development site in the much sought after village of Ladock. Planning permission was granted on the 15th of September 2014 ref. APP/D080/A/14/2214174 for ten affordable and nine substantial open market dwellings.

Ladock is a very popular village approximately six miles east of Truro city centre, ten miles from either the north or south Cornish coast, eight miles from St. Austell and has easy access to the A30 trunk road for quick commuting in and out of the county. Ladock is a thriving community with an excellent range of village facilities including public house, primary school, parish church, general stores and post office and a magnificent village hall with regular clubs and activities. Probus is within a couple of miles where there are further facilities including a farm shop, doctors surgery, cafe, public house and a couple of restaurants. The Cathedral city of Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants and bars, private and state schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington). Newquay airport is approximately thirteen miles away.

The Site - The location of the development site is very special, on the edge of the village adjoining open countryside and enjoying far reaching rural views. It presents a very exciting opportunity to build in a popular rural village where there has been little development over many years and where there is a strong demand for houses. The village is very sought after and perfectly located for those working in Truro and St. Austell but wanting a quiet rural village setting within an excellent community. The popular primary school and church is very close to the site and the village centre with its public house, village hall and general store is within walking distance. The development has a mixture of apartments, two and three bedroom homes all of which are "affordable" dwellings so a relationship with a housing association is required. The larger remaining nine houses are detached, mainly four and five bedroom executive style homes and one three bedroom house all with double garages and driveway parking for two cars. All but one of these adjoin open farmland (currently farmed organically) with fabulous far reaching views. The designs of the houses are very attractive, most have feature entrance halls, four bedrooms (two en-suites) and open plan kitchen/breakfast/family rooms ideal for modern day living. There is a strong demand for quality family homes in the area and an early viewing is strongly recommend.
