Full description


Traditional stone built house, renovated throughout and occupying a very pleasant position just half a mile from Probus village.

This detached property is one of a small group of dwellings forming the hamlet of Truck about half a mile from the village of Probus. It was once the farmhouse to a smallholding and is an attractive traditional stone built dwelling with white painted casement windows. In some respects it is larger than might be expected with a spacious sitting room, a good size kitchen, separate dining room and four bedrooms with bathroom on the first floor. A particular feature of the property is a very large outbuilding, ideal for anyone wanting storage for classic cars or similar or indeed anyone needing plenty of workshop space for various hobbies.
