Property Description

An attractive, versatile and substantial three storey Victorian town centre property, offering light and spacious accommodation of circa 297 square metres, retaining many original features and exposed beams, situated just off the main thoroughfare and in proximity of the main car parks, shopping and leisure facilities of St Austell town centre. Originally a former printing press, the property has been utilised for a variety of commercial, recreational and retail opportunities in recent years. In 2006 the property had the benefit of a Grant of Conditional Planning Permission, under application number C2/06/00294, for a very modest scheme, for conversion into three x one bedroom apartments which has since lapsed. Copies and plans are available to view via Miller Countrywide. Interested parties perhaps considering residential conversion of the whole, or part of the premises, change of use etc must make and rely upon their own planning enquiries of Cornwall Council planning department on 0300 1234 151.


St Austell town centre is situated within easy reach of the A30/A38 road network and offers a wide range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. There is a mainline railway station and leisure centre together with primary and secondary schools and supermarkets. The picturesque port of Charlestown and the award- winning Eden Project are both within a short drive.

* Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
