Development land with planning permission for 14 houses near Helston is heading to auction with a £275,000 freehold price guide.

The site off Kei-Wei, in Rinsey Lane at Ashton, extends to a total of 0.67 hectares (1.68 acres).

Plans for the development show six detached homes and eight semi-detached houses, all with gardens and parking.

Senior auction appraiser Katie Semmens said: “This is an exciting development opportunity in a good residential area. Ashton is close to Praa Sands and Porthleven.

“We expect keen interest from developers with a ready-made scheme for building out in an area where demand for housing remains strong.”

Meanwhile, in nearby Penryn, a large period house comprising five self-contained flats has a freehold guide of £325,000.

The building in Broad Street has three flats with one bedroom each and two flats with two bedrooms.

Katie said: “This is a superb opportunity to acquire the freehold of a large period property.

“The self-contained flats require updating but have the potential to become a lucrative rental investment or be placed on the market for resale post works.”

Bidding for the current auction goes live on July 22 and ends on July 24.
