Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The ancient former market town of Launceston boasts a comprehensive range of shopping, schooling, commercial and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 trunk road giving access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.

This Grade II Listed circa 200 year old property was acquired by our clients back in 2006 for the purpose of providing both a comfortable home and premises in which to grow their business. In a highly prominent location 42 St Thomas Road has lots of character features. Due to the success of the business the current owners have sourced larger office space and therefore this freehold building is available with no forward chain. Over the past eleven years they have made numerous significant improvements to the building with a great deal of expenditure going into re-roofing, installing new heating, hot water and ventilation systems, insulating throughout and where possible double and secondary glazing.

42 St. Thomas Road comprises a spacious ground floor commercial area consisting of a large staff room with original slate floor, commercial office area with space for 4/5 desks and plenty of natural light as well as a meeting room and ground floor WC. There is a good sized integral garage with concertina doors providing off road parking.

The first floor is accessed from a sweeping staircase with period balustrade where there is plenty of reception accommodation for the maisonette including a large lounge, formal dining room and a kitchen/breakfast room which is well equipped with a range of matching wall and base units as well as an integrated electric oven, gas hob and extractor. The light and airy kitchen area has wood floorboards, a feature fire surround and access to the enclosed paved roof terrace which enjoys a striking view up to Launceston Castle. The terrace is the perfect place for eating outside during the warmer months.

On the second floor there are four bedrooms, the master bedroom suite has fitted wardrobes and a modern well-appointed en-suite shower room/WC. Two further bedrooms are large enough to accommodate a double bed with the fourth bedroom being a single room. The family bathroom/WC is also modern with a shower unit over the panelled bath.

Our clients have renovated and improved the property significantly with full support of the conservation officer in line with listed building guidelines including a discrete solar thermal supply for the hot water to the maisonette. On the ground floor the commercial area has a wood pellet boiler which creates underfloor heating in the office. It is worth noting that there is a useful basement providing further storage. We regard 42 St. Thomas Road to be a perfect opportunity for someone looking to grow their own business in what is a prominent location. The efficient set up provides comfortable living above the commercial premises and convenient access to both Newport and the town centre. The property has a long history of housing successful local businesses and together with the maisonette offers over 200sqm GIA. We have no hesitation in recommending an early internal inspection.

The owner will offer the property for sale or to rent. The entire premises are available to rent on the basis of a new 5 year lease at £1,250 per calendar month on full repairing and insuring terms. An incoming tenant will need to provide the usual bank reference and two trade references for landlord's approval. Alternatively the freehold of the premises will be available at a sale price of £225,000. The premises are in an eye catching main road position and ideal for professional offices or retail.

The accommodation briefly comprises:
From Launceston Town Centre proceed down the A388 (St Thomas Road). Take the second right hand turning into Station Road and 42 St. Thomas Road will be identified on the right hand side by our Webbers For Sale Board.
