A fantastic development opportunity for a building plot with planning for three, three bedroom detached houses on a neighbouring plot to a five/six bedroom property which offers substantial accommodation, a self-contained one bedroom annexe.

Originally two cottages with some of the original parts dating back over 200 years, the property was altered to create The Croft Inn Public House. This thereby provides the opportunity of switching back to two properties or converting to apartments (subject to planning).

Now with the main house used as a family home, there is an additional one bedroom annexe and a building plot for three detached houses - a unique opportunity to develop a site with multiple options in the forever popular town of St Ives. Plans are available upon request.

The main house offers versatile accommodation with six first floor rooms and a bathroom. To the ground floor there is an impressive open plan living/entertaining area, plus a generous sized storeroom. The main feature of this room is the imposing feature fireplace with wood burner and the kitchen/breakfast area leading to a utility. This property, subject to planning, offers an excellent opportunity to be converted into apartments or returned to two cottages.  In addition, there an existing one bedroom annexe with its own entrance adjacent to the main house that benefits from a lounge, kitchen and bathroom, this currently generates an annual rental gross income of £8340.00.

Adjacent to the main house is the plot with planning permission for three, three bedroom detached homes (planning reference: PA15/05238).

St Ives, famous for its picturesque harbour and sandy beaches, is a small fishing town on the dramatic North Coast of Cornwall. Whilst numerous galleries are scattered in the town celebrating the works of artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach and Ben Nicholson amongst many others in addition, the town boasts a leisure centre with swimming pool, a theatre and cinema.
