SUMMARY: A rare opportunity awaits in the heart of St Columb Major with Towntrees Garage. This former commercial garage, dormant for years, has been transformed into a detached family home featuring two separate apartments. Additionally, it boasts a fully detached 42-foot workshop, previously used for business purposes, and a generous forecourt, perfect for off-street parking. This property is available with no onward chain and presents an exciting redevelopment project suitable for various buyers, from families seeking a spacious detached home to those interested in generating rental income or pursuing hobbies like car mechanics.
Situated on Higher East Street, the property enjoys a central yet slightly secluded location, away from the main high street. The sizable forecourt ensures ample secure off-street parking. The workshop occupies the left side of the plot, with the main dwelling at the rear. The main dwelling, constructed in the late 1980s, offers modern construction methods, despite its current need for renovation.
The lower level features an integral garage and a useful storage area. Separate entrances provide access to both the ground and first-floor apartments. The ground floor apartment, though in need of refurbishment, offers a well-organized layout with an open-plan lounge/kitchen, a double bedroom, and a separate shower suite heated by night storage heaters.
The first-floor apartment, where the family resided, is more extensive and has received partial renovation. From its entrance, there's useful storage and stairs leading to a spacious landing. This apartment comprises two double bedrooms, a spacious lounge, and a partially finished kitchen with white gloss units and Smeg appliances. The bathroom is stripped and ready for a new suite installation, with all plumbing in place. Gas is available on the first floor, allowing for the potential installation of central heating. Windows are a mix of original timber single-glazed and some UPVC double-glazed units.
Within the workshop, you'll find various new UPVC double-glazed units stacked and ready for installation, the inclusion of these within in the sale is to be confirmed. The workshop, while older, is solid and features large commercial-grade doors that can accommodate various vehicles, including vans. With a length of just over 42 feet, it offers a vast space for renovation and customisation. This property is a rare and exciting project for its fortunate new owners.
WHAT WE LOVE: This is a very unusual property style that will suit so many different types of buyers and no doubt prove to be a very rewarding project.
