An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a single individual building plot with over 2.5 acres of pasture and wooded land in an enviable and sought after picturesque valley location and yet only 2½ miles from the centre of the City of Truro.

Outline Planning Permission (PA19/04518) granted on 6th August 2019 for a new single storey 3 bedroom dwelling. The plot is set within 2.81 acres of land with just under 1 acre of which is ancient woodland containing a variety of deciduous trees.
The plot

The site of the proposed new dwelling is set back from the minor Council maintained roadway within a 1½ acre gently sloping pasture paddock. The existing wooden five bar gated entrance off the road is to be improved in accordance with the planning permission creating a permeable paving parking and turning area.

Gateways at each end of a tree lined hedge lead to a separate, attractive and gently sloping pasture paddock which abuts Penventinnie Lane. To the south is a ½ acre ancient sloping wood, which is part of a County Wildlife Site, and has gated entrances providing shelter to the plot from the prevailing south-west as well as a wonderful walk with a carpet of Bluebells in the Spring.

The approved Outline Planning Permission together with the pasture and wooded land provides an exceptionally rare opportunity to construct a single storey dwellinghouse in this extremely attractive and sought after location but also with the added benefit of land ideal for equestrian, hobby farming and/or amenity purposes.

Planning & special conditions

Outline Planning Permission was granted on 6th August 2019 (Application No: PA19/04518) with some matters (appearance and landscaping) reserved for the construction of a single storey dwelling including improvements to the existing access and installation of a sewage treatment plant. A previous planning permission for the conversion of existing buildings on the land under the Part Q provisions has been replaced by the Outline Planning Permission requiring that the new dwelling shall not be occupied until the existing outbuildings have been demolished and the materials removed from the land etc. A copy of the Grant of Outline Planning Permission is available from the Agents or online at Cornwall Council's website.

The plot is situated at the northern end of Penventinnie Lane and less than ½ a mile from the Royal Cornwall (Treliske) and Duchy Hospitals. The A390 at Treliske roundabout is only ¾ of a mile away leading to the A30 at Chiverton about 3½ miles to the west and the centre of the City of Truro 2½ miles to the east.

Village amenities can be found at Threemilestone to the south and Shortlanesend to the north with a full range within and around Truro which is the principal commercial and retail centre for the County of Cornwall.
