A shop premises with owner accommodation in a prime waterfront location in the highly desired harbour village of Portscatho.
Portscatho is one of the most well known and best loved villages on the Roseland Peninsula, an unspoilt area of Cornwall's south coast. An active community, the village is served by a range of shops and caters for day to day needs including general store, butchers, café, public house, harbour club, and doctor's surgery as well as galleries and gift shops. A pretty church, primary school and public house are found in the neighbouring village of Gerrans. Always a haven for artists and coastal endeavours, Portscatho's enduring appeal is now achingly hip, in part a fantastic local food scene, led by the now legendary Hidden Hut Beach Cafe just along the coastal path at Porthcurnick Beach, described by The Telegraph as the 'hottest destination in the county, if not the country'. The team behind the café have also added a beach front coffee shop and tavern in the village itself and the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin starred restaurant is also close by at Rosevine.
The prime waterfont location of the old post office would lend itself to a range of commercial ventures that would complement and add to the varied and vibrant food, retail and artistic offerings (subject to any change of use requirements and permissions).
The ground floor is accessed from the front door to the shop and a side door which leads to the rear hall, rear of the shop and store rooms. The shop itself has two windows and overlooks the waterfront. There is an additional room to the front, once the ice cream parlour, which also overlooks the harbour. At the rear are two large store rooms. The overall ground floor space is approximately 714 square feet (66.4 square meters)
The first floor has previously been used as one bedroom owner's accommodation and has separate access via stairs to the rear of the premises. Currently an open plan space, there are three windows to the front enjoying the panoramic sea and harbour views which encompass the Lugger, Gerrans Bay to Porthcurnick Beach and beyond to Nare Head. The accommodation includes a kitchen and bathroom.
The Roseland is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with delightful harbour and rural villages, popular stretch of the South West Coastal Path and golden sand beaches and hidden coves. Further along the peninsula is St Anthony's National Trust headland with its iconic lighthouse and lesser known golden beaches of Towan and Mulunan. The elegant sailing resort of St Mawes is just five miles away, where the passenger ferry takes you to the vibrant town of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro is 15 miles distant and has a direct rail link to London. Newquay airport for regional flights is around 50 minutes away.
Mains water, mains drainage and mains electric.
The property is being offered as one freehold premises and consideration may also be given to a leasehold agreement on the ground floor only.
