Exciting opportunity to purchase the entire Freehold of this wonderful property called Headland House which dates back to the early 1920's. Commanding a prominent elevated city centre location at the 'Head' of Truro this property originally occupied a mature plot totalling approximately an acre which over the years was divided up to allow 3 further individual detached properties to be built. Headland House still retains very pleasant gardens, ample parking with two separate access driveways, one off Falmouth Road and the other main sweeping drive entering just off Green Lane.

Since purchased in 2004 the property has seen an extensive scheme of renovations, re-modelling and extending in places now providing a tasteful conversion into a number of maisonettes plus a freehold end terrace house. Each maisonette was issued with a 999 year lease, use of all communal gardens and allocated parking. Originally there was 8 Separate units of which two have been sold in the last 5 years. Currently there are 5 individual units that are being let by the current owners which in this market is achieving a gross yield circa £40,000 p.a. There is also a wonderful, spacious 3 bedroom pent-house apartment with balcony that the current owners live in which would let for £1350 pcm. If this was incorporated alongside the other 5 units for letting purposes, a gross yield circa £55,000 would be achieved.


The city of Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall, with the famous Cathedral lying at its heart. The city offers a unique mix of independent shops and multiples as well as an excellent collection of art galleries, bars, restaurants, night clubs, cinema, The Hall for Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall Museum. The city is steeped in history and features many wonderful Georgian terraced streets which are rivalled only in the west by Bath. There are also a number of fine municipal gardens including Boscawen Park and Victoria Gardens, which have in the past won many awards in the Britain In Bloom competition. The city also lies at the centre of the Cornish transport network and has a mainline station to London Paddington.
