Full description


An opportunity to acquire a property of mixed use which comprises retail premises on the ground floor and spacious three bedroom accommodation above, occupying a level position near the centre of the town.

Accommodation Comprises:- Shop/retail premises, reception room, inner hall with stairs to first floor, landing, lounge, kitchen/diner, three bedrooms, shower room, part uPVC double glazed windows, nightstorage heating, attached garage and workshop.


DESCRIPTION 
'The Higgins Press' is an attached property constructed of solid stone walls to the ground floor and concrete block work to the first floor, under a pitched roof clad with natural slate. Historically the property has been recognised for it's commercial use and most recently as an antique shop, but the first floor was converted to residential accommodation in the early 1980's. Given the overall floor area, we feel there is a potential re-development opportunity (subject to planning consent) for full residential use, which could enable the property to be split into two properties.

SITUATION 
Lostwithiel offers a variety of shops, restaurants, public houses, professional services, bank, dentist and health centre. There is a main line railway station with a regular service to London Paddington. A purpose built community centre offers recreational/sporting facilities and is located next to the King George V playing field which is bordered by the River Fowey. 'The Eden Project' is a 10-15 minute drive west of the town and there are several popular beaches along the nearby the south coast.
