Full description

Located on the extreme south-western fringe of the highly sought-after village of Mawnan Smith, close to Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens, an extraordinarily rare opportunity to purchase an individual building plot with planning consent for an exciting 2-storey dwelling which will enjoy beautiful views to the mouth of the Helford River and surrounding unspoilt countryside.

The Location - The site occupies a superb position on the extreme south-western edge of this highly sought-after village, just a few moments' walk from National Trust Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, and the northern banks of the Helford River.

The village's excellent day-to-day amenities are within a few minutes' walk and include a church, electricians, thatched public house, cafe, restaurant, convenience stores, doctors surgery, craft shops, active village hall, garage and regular bus service to the port of Falmouth, approximately six miles distant.

The Site - The site extends to approximately half an acre, is level, well enclosed to all sides by mature hedging and Cornish stone walling, and enjoys all-day sunshine, as well as picturesque views from the first floor over surrounding unspoilt countryside to the mouth of the Helford River and shoreline of The Lizard peninsula. To the rear of the site, a gate leads onto a footpath which provides easy access to the village and to the picturesque creekside hamlet of Durgan.

The Planning Permissions - Consent was granted on 11 July 2016 for a 'Two-storey new build house, comprising of a main house, link building, annexe and car port', application number: PA16/04538.

Previously, consent had been obtained for a single-storey dwelling on 23 June 2015, appeal reference: APP/DO840/W/14/3001637.

Consequently, the site benefits from both planning permissions, full details of which can be obtained from the offices of Laskowski & Company, or direct from the Cornwall Council website - Online Planning Register.

The Proposed Dwelling - "The house is a two-storey property with a sunken ground storey, broken into four distinct elements - the main house, the link, the annexe and car port. The scheme seeks to respond critically and sensitively to the site and neighbouring built and rural elements. Essentially our approach is to propose a new single dwelling of architectural distinction, sensitively set in the landscape of the AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)" - Tate Harmer LLP Architects.

General Information -

Services - We are advised mains electricity, water and drainage are in close proximity to the site, but prospective purchasers should, in the normal manner, make their own enquiries in this regard.

Tenure - Freehold.

Agents Note - Prospective purchasers should be aware Covenants restrict the site to one dwelling only, and no structures/plants should exceed 6' in height in an area to the eastern side of the proposed dwelling, to protect the view from the neighbouring property.

Viewing - Strictly by telephone appointment with the vendors' Sole Agents - Laskowski & Company, 28 High Street, Falmouth, TR11 2AD. Telephone: 01326 318813.
