Substantial & beautifully presented country residence of some 5000sq ft (gia) with versatile accommodation, double car port, gardens & small paddock. 3 storeys. Garden, kitchen, dining room. 5 reception rooms. Up to 8 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms. Annexe. Gym. Paddock. EPC Rating: E 1.4 Acres

Situation - Durian House is pleasantly situated in unspoilt rolling countryside about a mile to the south-east of Stithians village. The village offers a range of facilities and amenities including a village shop and post office, public houses, primary school, church and so forth. These are supplemented further by the port of Falmouth about 6 miles to the south-east and the cathedral city of Truro about 9 miles to the north-east.

Description - The approach to Durian House is via a double timber vehicular gateway to a tarmac drive which opens onto a further stone chipped drive with car parking areas and which leads down to a new detached Double Car Port.

The accommodation to Durian House is delightfully presented to the market having recently been the subject of a careful re-development programme, which altered and extended an original property of three adjoining houses into two houses. The property today offers engineered oak floors, well-equipped modern kitchen ranges, contemporary bathrooms and en suites, numerous full height tilt and turn glazed doors with side lights to access balconies and maximise the fine countryside views.

The layout has been thoughtfully arranged to generate light, spacious and flexible living accommodation over three storeys and will suit purchasers interested in buying a substantial light and spacious quality home of some scale, to those interested in dual or multiple accommodation for occupational or letting purposes.

The entrance is either from a lower ground floor to a most attractive and individual Garden Room or at ground floor level to a fine Reception Hall. The Garden Room offers a glazed roof and a “Mediterranean feel” and which leads through to a Dining Room with kitchen units and adjacent “back” Kitchen. The Kitchen offers an extensive range of modern base level units and a polished concrete floor.

On the first floor is a spacious inner Reception Hall and adjoining Living Room, both of which benefit from full height wide picture windows enjoying the views to the north and are served by an island wood-burner. Off is a Utility Entrance Hall and an Office and further accommodation.

From the Inner Reception Hall are turning glass balustrade stairs which lead to the first floor Landing with doors off to a superb Master Bedroom with walk-in Dressing Room, picture window enjoying the views and a spacious contemporary En Suite Bathroom opening onto an ample balcony with far reaching views. Also on the first floor are two further double Bedrooms with a “Jack and Jill” walk-in Shower Room - both with balconies. Both these bedrooms benefit from high level mezzanine areas and a walk way leading to an adjoining internal “Snug” over the Jack and Jill Shower Room.

From the Office on the ground floor there access through to additional versatile accommodation including a Laundry/Reception Room, Kitchen area and Living Room and further first floor Bedroom with En Suite Bathroom.

In addition is a 3 Bedroom Annexe (currently used as two holiday lets in the summer months) which offers further two-storey accommodation including an open-plan Kitchen and Dining Room with modern range of kitchen units, a well-proportioned Living Room and stairs up to a main Bedroom off which is a Bunk Bedroom and an En Suite Bathroom. A further flight of stairs leads to the other 2 Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. The Annexe has a large roof terrace with far reaching countryside views.

The Gardens And Courtyard - Adjacent to the car parking and turning areas is a pleasant garden laid mainly to lawn with central granite raised flower and shrub bed, including a centrepiece Ash tree, with shrub borders. On the northern side of the house is an extensive recreational grassed garden and stone chipped courtyard seating area adjacent to the Office and a Gym.

The Paddock - Adjoining to the north is a rectangular shaped level paddock with fence and Willow boundaries. The paddock benefits from an access adjacent to the double detached car port and a secondary track access from the public road to the north-east. In total, Durian House extends to about 0.90 acres.

Viewing - Strictly and only by prior appointment with Stags’ Truro office on .
