Lot 98


The Old Pool Post Office, 58 Fore Street, Pool, Redruth, Cornwall, TR15 3PF
The Old Pool Post Office, 58 Fore Street, Pool, Redruth, Cornwall, TR15 3PF
Sold £110,000

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 good-sized 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 graphic 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.
