Full description

A wonderful and rare opportunity to acquire a superbly renovated part of Cornwall's industrial history situated close to the World-renowned Eden Project. Comprising 4 letting cottages and sumptuous owners accommodation set within 1.65 acres.
A comfortable lifestyle business, viewing highly recommended.

Location - Wheal Rashleigh occupies a prominent trading location just off the village St Blazey, sign posted to the Eden Project and is therefore an ideal base for those wishing to explore the South Coast of Cornwall, notably Looe, Fowey and Mevagissey. Also, it is a short drive to the A30 connecting east and west Cornwall. St Blazey has all usual village amenities including Primary School, shop and Public House etc and is close to St Austell which has national retailers, secondary education and main line railway station.

The Property/Business - Our clients acquired Wheal Rashleigh some 13 years ago as a derelict historical building associated with the China Clay industry and took 18 months to undertake a comprehensive conversion to provide well appointed owners and indeed letting cottages, which throughout feature high vaulted ceilings, well appointed kitchen and bathrooms and own private terrace gardens, alongside a grassed area for general use. In our experience, the conversion/refurbishment of this historic building is amongst the finest, which will be evident upon a viewing appointment.

In terms of the layout of the cottages, there is 1 x four bedroom unit, 3 x two bedroom units, all of which have reverse level accommodation, with an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner and bedrooms (Pan Kiln on the ground floor), with the remaining properties having the bedrooms on the lower ground floor, with separate access at that point.

In terms of the trade, our clients are now entering their fifth season (at June 2016) and currently the majority of the letting cottages are let through Sykes Cottages, sykescottages.com (where further photographs of the cottages can be seen) and we are advised the turnover for the cottages is in the region of circa £80,000 per annum.
