The property comprises a three storey end terrace building with self contained ground floor retail unit and two studio flats above.

The property is located on River Street in a prime location opposite the Royal Cornwall Museum. Nearby occupiers include White Stuff, Salt Rock and Rohan Outdoor Wear.


Truro has a resident population of 23,600 and is the administrative capital for Cornwall, being the county's
principal shopping, civic and business centre.

Located centrally within the county it is easily accessed from
the main A30 arterial trunk route via the A390 at Chiverton and the A39 at Carland Cross. The A30 links with the M5 at Exeter.

Truro is located on the main Great Western railway line, which has daily services to London Paddington.




The commercial unit is currently let to Treyone Woodcraft Ltd on a full repairing and insuring 6 year lease from September 2019 with 3 year tenant only break and 3 year rent review at a rent of £15,000 per annum. The tenant has been in occupation since 2010.

Flat One is let on a 6 month periodic tenancy from 09/05/2014 at a rent of £5,400 per annum (£450 PCM)

Flat Two is newly vacant, but was previously let on a 6 month periodic tenancy from 15/06/2020 at a rent of £6,300 per annum (£525 PCM)

We envisage there is scope for rental uplift to Market Rent of £525 pcm for Flat One, whilst Flat Two is likely to re-let quickly, therefore achieving a combined rent of £12,600 per annum for the residential units. We therefore anticipate the total reversionary rent for the property to be in the region of £27,600 per annum.
