The property comprises a large, Georgian building with several extensions and outbuildings and was formerly used as a hospital. The buildings lie within extensive grounds which in part previously allowed for parking of up to 40 cars.

The main hospital building comprises basement, ground and first floor accommodation. There is also a day care centre arranged across the ground floor and a Cottage arranged across ground and first floors.

We envisage the property would suit conversion/development to provide residential accommodation (subject to planning) and indicative drawings for schemes of up to 28 homes are available on request.

The total site area is 2.38 acres (0.963 hectares).


The property is located to the south west of Redruth, a large town in Cornwall nine miles to the west of Truro. To the east of the property is Fairfields Park, to the north east is St Rumons Social Club . The site is bound by the mainline railway to the south, Penryn Street to the east and West End Road to the north.

Redruth Railway Station is serviced by Great Western Railway providing connection to London Paddington, Penzance, Exeter St Davids and Plymouth.




Whilst there is no planning permission in place, the property is considered suitable for redevelopment to provide residential accommodation, and indicative drawings for several schemes are available upon request.

The property has received positive response to pre-application advice under application PA20/01828/PREAPP.
