Lot 1 - Copper House, Burncoose, Gwennap, Redruth, Cornwall, TR16 6BJ

  • Unconditional Online Auction Sale
  • Guide Price* : £675,000 plus


Part of the Coach House (the ground floor kitchen) is sited on land outside the boundary of title CL115997. The land is unregistered and it appears from the planning consent for conversion that the property has been in situ since at least 2003, with the registered proprietor of title CL115997 having had unimpeded use and occupation of this land. A third party has made claim to the unregistered land and this has been refuted by the borrower's partner (see information in the legal pack). In addition they claim ownership to two small sheds at the rear of the Coach House and that appear to lie within title CL115997 (again see information in the legal pack).

ON BEHALF OF RECEIVERS: 6 bedroom detached house County House and 4 bedroom Coach House requiring refurbishment and modernisation


The Copper House is a six bedroom Grade II listed Georgian Country residence that we understand was previously used as a holiday let business, but the configuration (subject to obtaining the necessary consents), provides the potential for a number of other uses, whether it be as a large private residence, or perhaps as a wedding venue or similar. Modernisation and refurbishment are required.

The Coach House, is a converted property with a more modern design, that incorporates exposed stone walls, the original stable doors (which have been lovingly reconditioned) and the various grills and grates that used to be part of the stables. The property benefits from a conservatory, leading to the patio area on two levels and separate garden area to the main house. We understand that the property has consent for holiday lettings when converted.

Interested parties should rely on their own enquiries with the Local Planning Office as to the current and future possible uses permitted under planning legislation.


Gwennap is a village renowned for the Gwennap Pit, having been awarded World Mining Heritage status. The property is located with easy access to the A393, approximately 7 miles from Falmouth in one direction giving you access to the South Coast and approximately 8 miles to the North Coast.
