A charming detached 2 bedroom cottage and an additional detached building with fully connected utilities. The property was the site of a successful Cattery for over 30 years. Tremendous development potential (subject to planning permission) or the opportunity to re-establish the Cattery business.
BEST AND FINAL OFFERS BY NOON, FRIDAY 7TH MAY.
This detached, two bedroom character cottage enjoys a peaceful rural position within the popular semi rural hamlet of Treskerby that borders Redruth. Occupying a generous plot, the property also includes a detached, single storey building which has, until recently, been used as a cattery, containing 19 pens, reception area, wc and wash room. The cattery was a thriving business for nearly 30 years until it ceased trading at the commencement of the 2020 Covid quarantine and all the equipment is still present. The sellers are able to provide a staff and customer list for potential purchasers who wish to operate a Cattery. Equally, as it already enjoys connected utilities, the cattery building could potentially be converted to a second dwelling (subject to obtaining planning permission) or annexe accommodation ancillary to the main cottage.
The cottage itself also offers excellent scope for extension and the large gardens are in a natural state with no pesticides having been used for over 30 years. The original cottage is understood to date back to the late 1700's and was originally an agricultural labourer's cottage and part of the Scorrier Estate. This is the first time the property has come to the market for nearly 40 years. There is driveway parking for the property which is offered to the market with no onward chain.
LOCATION The property is located towards the end of a no through road, in a semi rural position yet convenient for the facilities at Redruth town centre which include mainline rail station which are approximately 1 mile distance. There is easy access to the A30 trunk road and the property is also situated on the Royal Cornwall Hospital side of Redruth. The nearby beaches at Porthtowan and Portreath are approximately 3 miles distant whilst the cathedral city of Truro is some 8 miles distant.
