This wonderful Georgian house is tucked away in a wooded location on the outskirts of Lannner, within easy reach of Truro, Falmouth and Redruth.

The city of Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall, with the famous Cathedral lying at its heart. The city offers a unique mix of independent shops and multiples as well as an excellent collection of art galleries, bars, restaurants, night clubs, cinema, The Hall for Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall Museum. The city is steeped in history and features many wonderful Georgian terraced streets which are rivalled only in the west by Bath. There are also a number of fine municipal gardens including Boscawen Park and Victoria Gardens, which have in the past won many awards in the "Britain In Bloom" competition.

The city also lies at the centre of the Cornish transport network and has a mainline station to London Paddington.

The property is hugely versatile offering extensive accommodation and grounds. You enter the property via a large driveway which continues around to the rear of the property, here there is a separate patio which is used for the two bedroom cottage. At the far end of the parking area, there is a double garage, a detached barn - currently used as a studio however, it has a bedroom, kitchen and wet room, therefore it could be used as a separate self contained unit.

The grounds surrounding the property are truly stunning, being of a south-facing aspect, approaching an acre with sweeping lawns running the full width of the plot. The borders of the grounds are stone walls with mature trees and hedging - giving a wonderful degree of privacy. To the right hand side of the main house is a further quiet seating area with pergola. Adjacent to this is an indoor swimming pool.

The main house is well presented and retains many period features. You enter into a large conservatory that enjoys a wonderful vista over the gardens. The sitting room has a wood burner, period glass fronted display cabinets and enjoys an aspect over the gardens. Off the sitting room, an archway leads through into a further dining area/library. The kitchen/diner is a fantastic open plan entertaining space, which enjoys wonderful views to the front gardens along with a south-facing aspect. There is room for a large dining table. This continues through to a well-appointed kitchen with wood units and a central island. Off of the kitchen is the rear lobby, utility room and ground floor cloak room.

The first floor provides five bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys a lovely south-facing aspect over the gardens. The second and the fifth bedrooms both enjoy the front facing southerly aspect with fantastic views over the grounds and to the wooded countryside. To the rear of the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, both enjoying far reaching views over Lanner and to the open countryside beyond. The family bathroom is impressive, presented to a neutral decorative standard, offering a separate shower cubicle.

Attached to the main house is a separate two bedroomed cottage. This has been utilised as a holiday and residential let. There is a ground floor cloakroom, kitchen dining area with views over the gardens. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - enjoying the views. In addition to this, is a Jack and Jill bathroom which is neutrally presented. The attached cottage could easily be incorporated into the main property to created a larger seven bedroom, four reception room house.

Rarely do Georgian properties with such grounds and extensive accommodation come to the market. Viewing is unhesitatingly recommended at your earliest opportunity.
