A PAIR OF BUILDING PLOTS IN CENTRAL VILLAGE LOCATION
A former vehicle repair workshop located in the centre of Grampound village and with conditional planning consent for redevelopment to accommodate two link detached dwellings.
Each dwelling to comprise;- three bedrooms, bathroom, living room, dining area, kitchen and cloaks. Two large single garages are to connect the dwellings.
This is an unusual opportunity for development in a central village location. It necessitates the demolition of the current vehicular repair workshop and the replacement with two three bedroom dwellings linked only by their garages. It is a very attractive site bounded by old stone walls and perfect for the sympathetic development scheme for which detailed planning consent has recently been obtained.
Grampound is an historic village notable for its ancient dwellings set on either side of the main thoroughfare which is part of the A390 between Truro and St. Austell. It is also a thriving community with a range of facilities for daily needs including a village store with post office, public house, primary school, doctors surgery and also a Chinese restaurant. A regular bus service connects both Truro and St. Austell and here there are plenty of further facilities. Secondary schools in the area include the Roseland at Tregony and Brannel at St. Stephen. Main line railway stations are in both Truro and St. Austell.
The proposed dwellings are similar in overall size but differ somewhat in the layout of the accommodation. Each will provide:- on the ground floor - hallway with cloakroom, living room, dining area (either open plan to the living room or kitchen) and kitchen. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. A large single garage will connect the two properties.

Special Note - The existing tarmac road serving the site is also the vehicular access to three other dwellings and hence there will be a shared responsibility towards the maintenance of this area.
Services - Mains services are believed to be available but applicants must make their own enquiries with the relevant service authorities.
Directions - Proceeding into the village from the Truro direction watch out for the telephone call box on the right hand side of the road (at the foot of the hill). The entrance into the site is just after the call box and then easily identified.
