ELEGANT PERIOD TOWN HOUSE

Situated in one of Truro's most prestigious terraces close to the centre of the city. Beautifully presented throughout and retaining many original period features. Accommodation arranged on three floors with a fabulous south west facing garden and parking.

The Property - Most of the houses within the Parade were 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. 13 is a spacious family size house, still retaining a remarkable level of period detail, including well proportioned rooms with high ceilings, intricate cornice ceilings, quarry tiled flooring, decorative glass and a turning staircase with splendid Atrium above. This property will be of particular appeal to those wanting an interesting period house in a relatively quiet part of the city and yet literally just a few minutes walking distance from the shopping centre. This particular house has been a family home for the current owners for almost twenty years and during this time it has been well maintained and updated. The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall, large sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility with w.c. The first floor incorporates three double bedrooms and bathroom whilst on the top floor an unusual studio type bedroom has its own en-suite shower room. To the front of the property there is a delightful southwest facing garden and a courtyard at the rear which can accommodate two small vehicles.
