The Land at Penwarne is situated on the periphery of the coastal villages of Mevagissey and Portmellon, within the Roseland Peninsula on the south coast of Cornwall, approximately 7 miles to the south of the town of St Austell.

The property is located in a traditional agricultural area, with a number of established and well serviced coastal and inland villages in close proximity.

The region caters for a large number of visitors throughout the year, who visit the area to enjoy the beaches, coastpath and coastal destinations of Mevagissey, Gorran Haven and Pentewan to name but a few. As such, the area is served by a plethora of tourism and leisure businesses, including the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden project outside St Austell, watersports and boating activities. A full range of accommodation is available throughout the Roseland area, ranging from rustic campsites to hotels, along with high quality retail, food, drink and restaurant businesses, many of whom source their produce from local suppliers.

Mainline train services with direct routes to London run from St Austell or the county town of Truro, 17 miles to the west, with national and international flights operating out of Newquay Airport, 21 miles to the north.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
