    About this property

    • The extent of the land for sale is approximately 2.74 acres (1.11 hectares). The Seller intends to retain a 1 metre strip along the full length of the northern boundary. The land is currently in agricultural use and has historically been used for arable and other crops. The northern boundary of the site abuts agricultural land and the land to the east has recently been developed for residential use by Barratt David Wilson (104 dwellings). The southern and western boundaries border Kergilliack Road and Hillhead Road, respectively, both of which are adopted highways. The site is located in the established residential area of Kergilliack, approximately 1.5 miles north west of Falmouth’s town centre and 1 mile south of Penryn. Hillhead roundabout (A39) is situated approximately 0.3 miles north of the site, providing direct access towards Truro.
