Meadow View is for sale by Online Traditional Auction (unless sold prior). The auction end time is Tuesday 16th April 2024 at 5.30pm. The Vendor reserves the right to alter the lot prior to the auction end date. The lot can be accessed via Stags' website -

The approach is over a long attractive private shared tarmac and stone driveway through mainly attractive wooded grounds. Meadow View stands at the head of a picturesque valley, on the edge of a a residential farmstead, and is well positioned to access St Austell, about 3 miles, and also the A30(T) Innis Downs Roundabout about 5 miles to the north.

The seven-bay open fronted Barn with concrete floor is a clear span timber frame construction with timber side cladding and box profile metal roof sheeting. Standing in a south facing position at the head of the enchanting River St Austell valley, the conversion will create a particularly spacious, naturally light, airy and modern living at the head of the enchanting St Austell River valley. An exciting opportunity to create a striking contemporary residence in a tucked away and enviable position. Outside are extensive areas for the landscaping of recreational gardens and grounds - which extend in total to about half an acre.

Prior approval was granted on 19th December 2022 under Class Q, part 3 of Schedule II of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development (England) Order 2015) Reference PA22/90808 for the conversion of the barn to create a fine modern four bedroom residential dwelling of some 2,743 sq ft (gia) and adjacent double car port. A copy of the relevant planning documentation and associated drawings are available on request from Stags' Truro office or can be viewed on the Cornwall Council online planning register.

Freehold with vacant possession on completion. The completion date will be as dictated by the legal pack.

Copies of the legal pack and special conditions of sale are available online to be downloaded, via the tab on the online auction property listing page. Prospective purchasers will need to register with the Bamboo online platform in order to download the legal pack. It is the purchaser's responsibility to make all necessary enquiries prior to the auction. Prospective purchasers are strongly advised to inspect the legal documentation, this will/may contain material information regarding the property, and to consult legal advice prior to bidding.

There are covenants on the property.

The successful Purchaser will be liable to pay the sum of £5,000. From this a Buyer's Fee of £2,400 inclusive of VAT is retained by Stags/Bamboo Auctions as a contribution to the online platform costs and £2,600 forms part of the 10% deposit. The Purchaser will be required to pay the balance of the 10% deposit monies within 48 hours of the auction via their solicitor to the Vendor's solicitor. We therefore recommend all bidders clear the Anti Money Laundering Regulations with their solicitor prior to the auction.

An additional administrative fee of £1,200 inclusive of VAT will be payable by the successful Purchaser immediately after the online auction.

The Seller and Buyer agree that the winning bidder may transfer the remainder of the 10% deposit (less the amounts paid online) within 48 hours of the end of the Online Auction. Clauses 6.1, 6.2 and 7.1 of the Holding Deposit Agreement should be read as amended to reflect this accordingly. The remainder of the 10% deposit payment is handled by the Buyer's solicitors and must be in their client account no later than 48 hours post exchange. It is essential that you instruct your solicitor in advance of the auction.

Under Money Laundering Regulations 2017, it is a requirement for Estate Agents to perform due diligence checks on any person who intends to bid at auction. There is a requirement for all bidders to register via the Online Sale Site and complete the ID checks. There is no charge for registration.

Guide Price(s) is an indication of the Seller's expectations. Reserve Price(s) is a figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell the lot at auction. We expect the reserve to be no higher than 10% above the guide. Guide prices may change at any time prior to the auction.

At Ruddlemoor, pass the entrance to the China Clay Museum on the left and the entrance to Carthew Farm will then be immediately seen on the left-hand side where there is a wide cut granite splayed and pillared entrance. Pass the waterwheel and continue to the top of the hill. Bear to the right and drive onto the stone lane beyond the gate. Follow the road around to the left and Meadow View will be seen to the front.
