One of the most interesting opportunities presented in St Ives for many years.

The property is laid out over 5 floors and is being used as offices, this has been the case for over 30 years. The Old Sail Lofts are Grade II listed and the consent granted takes this into consideration. With over 2800 sq.ft of space, this truly is a rare chance. The apartments planned do not have H2 connected to them. Subject to further planning the passed plans could be changed.
