AGENT'S NOTE - Please note there is a Right of Way footpath that cuts over the top of the driveway and corner of the rear garden. There is potential for screening of the footpath, although many will feel this is unnecessary. 

Since Benuick was first listed for sale, a local search has revealed that Cornwall Council's definitive map shows this path going across the foreshore garden and not the rear garden. An application for a Diversion Order to 'legalise' the existing footpath can be applied for, if there are any concerns. The Order will also remove the foreshore part of the path from Cornwall Council's map. A Viability report is available on request. 

AGENT'S NOTE 2 - Our clients have had a pre sale septic tank survey. The current system will need to be changed due to new general binding rules coming into legislation from January 2020. The marketing price has been adjusted accordingly due to the above. The original marketing price was £1,250,000.
