Full description


Situated in a sought after location on the edge of Truro with large gardens of just under one acre. Well presented with good size accommodation but now in need of improvement and upgrading.

Three Corners is a large detached single storey property which probably dates back to the 1930's having been extended over the years to create a good size family home. The property has some ornate period detailing in particular in relation to the chimneys and internally with panelled doors, deep skirtings, picture rails, cornice and leaded stained glass panelling and windows. Whilst the property is well presented throughout it does offer tremendous scope for refurbishment and remodelling to suit individual taste.

A particularly attractive feature of the property are the large south facing gardens which amount to just under one acre and an impressive granite entrance with a driveway leading to a large turning and parking area with a double garage and a large timber workshop. There is also a secondary vehicular entrance leading into the property from the county maintained road (along the northern boundary) and thus with two entrances serving the site there may well be options for redevelopment (subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents). No formal applications for any proposals have been submitted by the vendors.

The area known as Scarcewater lies on the eastern edge of Truro adjacent to the minor country road leading to the creekside hamlet of St. Clement. The countryside around this part of Truro is particularly unspoiled and much of this has been designated as an "area of outstanding natural beauty". The city centre with its shops and varied amenities is approximately one mile from the property and this includes the historic Cathedral and the Hall For Cornwall. Penair Comprehensive school and Truro school are easily within walking distance.
