This substantial five bedroom detached residence requiring modernisation is located in a quiet elevated position

The Anchorage is a substantial detached property, situated in a sought after lane and elevated above the dramatic headland, beach and sea of Mawgan Porth. Requiring a degree of modernisation throughout, The Anchorage has fantastic scope to become a modern and spacious permanent or holiday home perched above the wide expanse of golden sandy beach and waterside cafes of Mawgan Porth below.

Having obtained planning permission in 1997 for conversion into two flats, the property currently comprises of three reception rooms, two kitchens and five bedrooms, spread over two floors together with two bathrooms and integral garage. The accommodation is light and spacious with some great sea views and would benefit from a scheme of refurbishment. The grounds are a good size with a generous amount of frontage including lawned garden, patio and driveway. To the rear is a fully enclosed and elevated lawned garden with established boundaries and some sea views. Services to the property include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.

Please note that the current vendors have recently obtained outline planning permission for a new dwelling in the rear dog leg section of the garden. To achieve access to the site, the single storey flat roof extension of The Anchorage will be removed from the site to facilitate a vehicular access way as will a section of the front garden. The building plot is now available separately with an asking price of £295,000. Please contact our office for full details and plans.
