Full description


An elegant period property, one of a terrace of late Georgian/early Victorian town houses close to the city centre.
Retaining many original period features with accommodation over three floors.
Four parking spaces and enclosed south facing garden.
Sold with no onward chain.

The houses within The Parade started to be built during the 1830's and whilst all are indicative of the Georgian period and similarly styled, every house is of an individual nature. No. 11 was built in 1850 and is a spacious double fronted family size house that has been in the same family ownership since the 1980's. It still retains a remarkable level of period detail including well proportioned rooms with high ceilings, intricate cornice ceilings and splendid staircase all of which will be of particular appeal to those wanting an interesting period house, a few minutes walking distance from the shopping centre. This particular house has been well cared for over the years and whilst now a little dated offers tremendous potential to create a wonderful family home. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, fitted kitchen with Aga and cloakroom. The sitting room is a fabulous well proportioned room with intricate cornice ceilings and open fireplace. The first floor currently has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, however this could easily be remodelled to provide a master bedroom with en-suite and dressing room as there are four further bedrooms, including two in the attic. To the front of the property is a delightful south facing enclosed garden and a courtyard at the rear can accommodate two vehicles. There are two further parking spaces which is a real bonus for this particular location as parking is at a premium. A further enclosed paved rear garden includes a greenhouse.

The Parade is approached from the city centre via Malpas Road which ultimately leads to the riverside hamlet of Malpas (about two miles distant) and also Boscawen Park with its adjacent cricket ground which is literally half a mile along the road and a very pleasant walk alongside the river. Truro city centre is within easy walking distance and has an excellent range of bars and restaurants, shop and the Cathedral. Truro School is also within a short walk from the property.
