Guide Price £180,000 - £200,000

The availability of this type of property to the market is a rarity. It comprises an extensive range of agricultural buildings together with a building plot for an agricultural workers dwelling (with foundations already commenced) and all set within a glorious open site extending to 2.2 acres or thereabouts. The buildings have latterly become redundant due to the current owners reducing commitments to the pig industry and whilst they have become run-down and neglected they still afford considerable potential.

The site is located at Higher Fraddon and approached by a cul-de-sac road which serves a variety of residential properties and also the Bio Gas Plant at the very top of the road. There is easy access into the site which is bounded by agricultural land and there are spectacular views out over the surrounding countryside to the sea in the distance.

Fraddon and Higher Fraddon merges with Indian Queens and is an expanding community just off the A30 and well placed for easy access to all parts of the county. There are plenty of facilities for everyday needs in the area whilst the busy centres of Truro, St. Austell and Newquay are also relatively close at hand.

The Buildings - There is approximately 13,000 sq ft (1,200 sq meters) of covered area and largely comprises numerous ranges of pig rearing buildings with internal pens, dung passages and feed stores etc. They are all of concrete block construction and all in need of attention.

The Plot - This is positioned at the entrance to the site and well located to enjoy the spectacular views.
