MIXED RETAIL & RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SITE FOR SALE - 40/42 CAUSEWAYHEAD, PENZANCE TR18 2SN
Offers in the region of £275,000.
Mixed retail and residential development site for sale situated at the northern end of Causewayhead, a busy pedestrianised street which leads to the main town centre.
Penzance lies at the western end of the Cornish peninsula facing on to Mount’s Bay on the south coast of Cornwall. The town is the principal retailing centre in the district previously known as Penwith and is a relatively busy commercial centre accommodating the Council offices and Magistrates Courts. Communications from Penzance are good with a direct link on to the A30 which forms the arterial road into and out of the County, linking with the M5 at Exeter. The town also has an Intercity Railway station providing a regular service to Paddington, London.
The property is situated at the northern end of Causewayhead – a busy pedestrianised retailing street which leads to the main town centre including Market Jew Street and Market Place. Causewayhead is a popular trading location, particularly during summer months, and has attracted a mixture of regional and local traders interspersed with national outlets with occupiers including Tui Travel Agents, Rowes Bakery, Subway and HSBC Bank Plc. Almost opposite the premises is a busy short stay car park.
The substantial building was originally three separate properties which over the years have been combined to create a small retail outlet and large bakery. There are three inner terrace units and offer a development opportunity to create up to three individual shops with living accommodation above. A pre-application has been submitted for conversion into 4 residential units and 1 commercial unit. At present the first-floor accommodation is ancillary storage and offices with a section being straddled and accessed across the flat roof section.
