Katie Semmens, senior auction valuer, said: "We never get tired of saying this - there is no chain to worry about, particularly if you're flush with cash.

"We anticipate keen interest, especially as the property is just a few paces from Newlyn's fishing harbour, where, weather permitting, there are great views over Newlyn and Mounts Bay.

"Subject to planning consents, there is scope for residential or commercial development, incorporating perhaps upwards extension or total replacement.

"The harbour is partially visible from the property, which is another draw."
