Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A rare opportunity to purchase a superb apartment within a Grade II listed former quayside warehouse, in the iconic harbour of Padstow. An ideal holiday home or base in Cornwall.

One of two apartments both having spectacular views over the bustling harbour of Padstow. Having originally been a warehouse, the original doors for importing goods have been converted into large windows providing superb coastal views.

Occupying the upper floor of the building, Number 6 is a large, two bedroom apartment. The impressive and generous sitting room has three windows offering panoramic views over Padstow's harbour. An exposed stone wall makes a nice feature. A double bedroom to the front of the building also enjoys panoramic views. There is both a family bathroom and separate shower room. The kitchen is a good size and there is a second, slightly larger double bedroom to the rear of the apartment, also with an exposed stone wall.

A spiral staircase leads up to a very large loft space with magnificent exposed timbers throughout. Previously used as an office and games room and for storage, there are a series of Velux skylights allowing this room plenty of potential for further accommodation. This could be a new master bedroom converting the apartment in to a 3 bedroom unit or releasing space below to enlarge the living areas (subject to planning permissions).

The apartment has its own independent access from Strand Street running to the rear of the building. Number 6 has the advantage of a large private store room off the entrance lobby at ground floor level which is useful for a small boat, surfboard or bike store. It also has the benefit of a shower room, ideal for washing off after a day at the beach.

This leasehold apartment is being offered with ownership of the freehold of the building.

The property is set in the heart of old Padstow with its picturesque bustling harbour, shops, restaurants and pubs. It is an increasingly fashionable charming fishing village made famous by the celebrity chef, Rick Stein. It sits in an inlet on the west side of the Camel Estuary, opposite Rock and protected from the prevailing winds off the Atlantic Ocean.

The town offers a good range of amenities, as does nearby Wadebridge, around eight miles by car or five miles via the Camel Trail footpath and cycle way which follows the river. Other superb walks include the Saints Way from Padstow to Fowey and the Coastal Footpath.

On arrival at Padstow on the A389 (from the direction of Wadebridge and the A30) take the right turn marked' Town Centre, Docks and Camel Trail' and continue down the hill to the main car parks along the quayside. We would suggest parking here and walking to the harbour where the property is found on the left had side overlooking the harbour. The doors to the properties are at the rear, off Strand Street.

Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected to the property. Central heating is electric with night storage heaters. Council Tax B.

The property is to be held with a new Lease, whilst the ownership of the freehold will be transferred to the owner of apartment 6. The lower apartment and the ground floor shop and art gallery to the front of the building is under separate leasehold ownership at a peppercorn rent.
Restrictive covenants prevent any noisy or odorous use in order to protect the enjoyment of the apartments above.

Cornwall Council. County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro TR1 3AY. 0300 1234 100.
