A Cornish mining community’s abandoned house is up for sale. It includes a variety of personal possessions, such as a kitchen baby grand piano.

Named for Redruth’s historical mine that remains, Pednandrea Bungalow rests on a vast plot of land overlooking the city.

The house, which is believed to be built in the 1960s, has four bedrooms and surrounds itself with various outbuildings. One of these includes a large workshop, where antique tools were left as they were many years ago.

Following the death of the long term owner in August 2019, Pednandrea Bungalow is on the market after the current occupier decided they didn't have the time to renovate the property

After the passing of long-term owner August 2019, Pednandrea Buungalow has been put on the marketplace. This is because the current owners decided that they don’t have enough time to renovate.

House-hunters may feel a bit sunk when they see the property. This is because the mined foundation on which it was built has caused subsidence.

The agents stated that the house would be most suitable for investors who are able to demolish, strengthen, rebuild and restore. It is also a home where the time has stopped even though it was built on top of a ground which has changed.  

In the 18th century Redruth was one of the largest and richest mining areas in Britain and the town’s population grew markedly.

This area was bordered by copper ore, which were needed for making brass, an important metal in the Industrial Revolution. 

However, Cornish mines were in decline by the turn of the 19th Century, with Britain importin most of their copper ore.

What remains from the Pednandrea Mine’s Redruth stack can be seen now behind Pednandrea Bungalow.

Rebecca Stoneman from EweMove Redruth said that the vendor brought the property to Redruth without being able to properly deal with them.

“There are some historic mining operations underneath the property, so the bungalow may have to go.”

Rebecca comments, “It is just so beautiful and big.” The location is perfect, it’s in central Redruth. It has beautiful views.

“The place’s whole stamp is too big for Redruth. It would be beautiful if this could continue, but it isn’t, which is really disappointing.
