Situated on a quiet, private, no-through road of substantial individual properties, 'behind' Swanpool Lake and just a few minutes' walk from the beach and South West Coast Path, an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow, together with a building plot with Planning Permission for a second, separate residential dwelling: A superb site extending to approximately 0.6 of an acre, ideal for those purchasers wishing to build a new home, redevelop an existing bungalow or, alternatively, vary the recently gained consents, subject to further application.

The Property

Constructed circa 1960 and to be sold now for only the second time since construction, 'Gwelantyr' occupies a superb site off a private no-through lane, moments from Swanpool Lake, a picturesque circular walk around which leads to Swanpool Beach and the beautiful Cornish South West Coast Path.

The existing dwelling provides versatile two/three bedroom accommodation, with a sunny southerly aspect over front gardens and good sized gardens which will remain to the rear.

Recently obtained Planning Permission, granted on 14 July 2020, Cornwall Council Application Number: PA20/02561 provides, in addition, consent for the construction of a separate, detached and completely independent second dwelling, services for which have been organised by the vendors and are already accessible to the site.

The property will, therefore, prove of immense appeal to builders and developers, as well as two-family purchasers and those wishing to work from home etc, as there may be potential to vary the existing Planning Permission, if required, subject of course to further consents being obtained.
