Full description

Opportunity to create a contemporary country residence of some 4,500 sq ft in an idyllic private rural setting. Tremendous chance. Private prime position. Attractive views. Contemporary design. Services nearby.

Situation - Treskiber is quite superbly situated in a private rural position surrounded by farmland with good views, yet is only about three miles drive from the centre of the cathedral city of Truro. Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall and offers a comprehensive range of shopping, banking, schooling and recreational facilities and amenities. Although in a tucked away position, there are good road links with a junction to the A30(T) at Carland Cross only about four miles to the north.

Outside - Mainly to the north-west and south-west of Treskiber are expansive areas for gardens and parking which again take full advantage of the views.

Description - The approach to Treskiber, which is Cornish for 'Home in The Shed', is initially over a private right of way being a tarmac lane which leads to a private drive of about 100 metres to the property.
Treskiber is a substantial clear span steel portal frame modern agricultural building which extends to about 4,500 sq ft. It stands in a commanding position with a design that affords much use of glass on the main elevations which are aligned to take full advantage of some delightful rolling countryside views towards Idless and of the area.
Attached to these particulars is a suggested or draft accommodation floor plan. The clear span portal frame blank canvas and sheer scale of Treskiber opens a number of possibilities for the internal accommodation layout, which might include for instance an indoor swimming pool or games room with the main day to day rooms positioned to enjoy the tremendous countryside views.

Town And Country Planning - An application was made under Schedule 2, Part 3, Class Q of the Town and Country Planning General Permitted Development (England) Order 2015 for the building to be converted to a single dwelling (application no. PA15/10894) dated 17th November 2015. This application for prior notification was refused on 12th January 2016 by Cornwall Council. An appeal was lodged with The Planning Inspectorate which was allowed on 18th August 2016 for the conversion of Treskiber to a dwelling.
Copies of the appeal decision and associated drawings are available on request from Stags Truro office.
