Key features

  • Development site for 2 houses
  • Clear, level plot
  • Breathtaking views over St Michael's Mount



A truly rare opportunity to purchase a development site for two houses, on a clear level plot with detailed consent for two detached properties.  This site has breathtaking views over St Michael's Mount, Mounts Bay and miles of countryside and is located in a prominent, non-estate setting fronting the B3301 close to the north coast between St Ives and Penzance

Castle Gate is a small rural community 3 miles north of Penzance on the B3311 to St Ives. This central location within west Cornwall means that the wide and varied amenities of the historic port of Penzance on the south coast are close to hand. Here there is a wide range of schooling, shopping, commercial and health facilities including a hospital. Penzance is famous for its maritime background as is the neighbouring picturesque fishing port of Newlyn. Many of the peninsula's most well known beauty spots and attractions are easily accessible including the Iron Age village of Chysauster, the iconic engine house ruins of Botallack, Lamorna, the artists' mecca of the south-west and of course the UK's western most extremity at Land's End. The famed fishing port and artist's mecca of St Ives on the north coast is 4 miles away, whilst the A30 at Crowlas is 2 miles away , ideal for commuting to the larger towns of Camborne, Redruth and Truro, all of which are within a 25 mile radius.

The Site
This clean level site with direct access onto the Council highway, was granted Conditional Planning Consent for the erection of two dwellings and associated works including their new access and improvement of an existing access for Blue Horizon was granted on the 11/08/2022 under planning reference: PA22/07379. It is worth noting that there is no Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payable as the application does not increase upon the floor space of the original pre-CIL permission.

The detailed drawings provide for a pair of three bedroom detached chalet style homes, each with its own garage. The homes will have first floor lounges, taking in the spectacular views in a south-easterly direction across St Michaels Mount, Mounts Bay and the coastline and countryside beyond.
