The Mullion Mini Market, Nansmellyon Road, Mullion, Helston, Cornwall, TR12 7DH

An excellent re-development opportunity comprising the Mullion Mini Market and its independently accessed three bedroom maisonette above. The property has planning consent for a further four open-market residential units in the form of works, to achieve a two flat conversion of the shop and a further two new-build bungalows to the rear.

It is, of course, possible that interest may come from those who would wish to continue with a commercial use of the ground floor and retain the flat above for their own purposes.

However, the property is sure to catch the eye of the development fraternity who will see the potential for an excellent scheme to sell the finished units or to hold them for full-time or holiday letting, or a combination of both strategies. This sector will also see the scope for different proposals (perhaps for a number of modest houses in a ‘T’ or ‘L’ shape) maximising the scale and shape of the site, if cleared, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

Whatever the outcome of the sale, the village is excellently served by a surprising range of shopping facilities and amenities.

The property lies only about half a mile from the delightful Pollurian Bay as well as the South West Coast Path, and not much more than a mile from the eye-catching and widely renowned Mullion Harbour.
