Full description


A semi detached property in the "New England" style and occupying a quiet valley location just two miles from Truro.
Three bedrooms including master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, main bathroom, utility and open plan kitchen/living room. Additional laundry/boiler room and detached store.

This property affords the rare combination of being a low maintenance modern home in an idyllic country setting and yet only two miles from Truro. The bungalow is semi detached and built in the "New England" style with coloured clapboard elevations under a natural slated roof. It is larger than might be expected with three bedrooms including a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, utility and open plan kitchen/living room.

The property is set in a lovely wooded valley just outside of Truro but it is not isolated and the nearest community of any size is the village of Shortlanesend and here there is a local shop and pub. The city of Truro with its Cathedral and fine shopping centre is within a few minutes driving distance and the property is also just a couple of miles from the A30 and hence easily accessible to all parts of the county. North and south Cornish coasts are both within easy reach.

Windows are double glazed and there is underfloor heating which is oil fired. Solar thermal panels on the roof assist the hot water system. In greater detail the accommodation comprises (all measurements are approximate):
