The former Post Office and four bedroom Postmaster's House at Pool, being a character property in a most convenient location with outline planning consent for conversion into two goodsized two bedroom homes each with garden and vehicular access to the side.

The property is likely to particularly appeal to those on the lookout for a modest development scheme for onwards sale of the finished houses or, perhaps, retention of either or both as residential investments especially bearing in mind the proximity of Cornwall College a few hundred metres to the west. Alternatively, there is potential not only for the resurrection of a mixed commercial and residential use for the property but it could also, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable, simply become a single large four bedroom single dwelling.

Pool is located roughly halfway between the larger towns of Redruth and Camborne and has a range of shops, including a small supermarket, takeaways and a launderette. The Morrisons superstore and Lidl supermarket are within half a mile with a bus stop being a very short walk away. Cornwall College campus is also close by. Both Redruth and Camborne offer a wider range of commercial facilities whilst access on to the A30 is approximately one mile away.




Entrance hall, former Post Office, separate office, sitting room, kitchen, inner hall and WC.

Living room/dining room, kitchen, inner hall and WC.

Large living room/dining room/kitchen, hallway and WC.


Two bedrooms and bathroom.


There is currently an area of land to the rear along with a handy shed with the approved plans showing gardens for both of the new homes along with separate cycle and bin stores. By virtue of the vehicular access to the side there is limited off-street parking.


Outline Planning Permission has been granted by Cornwall Council under ref:PA18/11662 dated 14th March 2019 for subdivision of the existing dwelling to provide an additional dwelling including a change of use of part of the ground floor former Post Office to residential use, subject to conditions. A copy of the Planning Consent and proposed plans will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or via Cornwall Council's website,
