Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Treleigh House is currently configured as a detached residence which is split into two, two bedroom self contained apartments. Both apartments benefit from double glazing and oil fired heating. Outside there is parking for several vehicles, a stone chipped garden area to the front aspect and garden areas to the side. The site currently benefits from planning permission which, if implemented, would entail replacing the existing detached residence with a modern and contemporary detached house together with a pair of semi detached properties. These will all be constructed over three floors so as to capture the scintillating sea views across Mounts Bay and out towards the Lizard Peninsula.

Equally a prospective purchaser may choose to retain the existing property and refine it to reflect their own particular requirements.

In brief, the proposed redevelopment provides for three, three storey properties, each of which we understand, will feature an attractive part exposed stone facade, slate tiled roof, painted rendered external elevations, double glazing and off road parking.

Plot 1 - A four bedroom (two en suites) executive residence with a focus on open plan and contemporary living on the second floor. Allocated parking.
Plot 2 - A semi detached, four bedroom (master en suite) house with open plan living space on the second floor and allocated parking.
Plot 3 - A three bedroom (master en suite), semi detached house with open plan living space on the first floor, garage and allocated parking.

The site is situated just a few moments from the beach and from the harbour side of this bustling and ever popular village. Porthleven is a vibrant, picturesque fishing village and is mainland Britain's most southerly port. The village is renowned for its many highly regarded restaurants, long beach, surfing, rugged coastline and clifftop walks. Community groups are thriving within the village with sports clubs and a prize winning brass band which can be heard echoing around the harbour on many a summer's Sunday evening. Local amenities include shops, Public Houses, galleries, supermarket, doctors' surgery and a well regarded primary school.
