DETACHED HOUSE WITH FINE COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS A four/five bedroom detached house set in the heart of this popular village. Easily configured to incorporate a ground floor annexe if required but equally suitable as one large family home.

Ladysmith House is an imposing detached house which enjoys fabulous views of the farmland surrounding Probus village. The accommodation is versatile, being easily adapted to provide a ground floor annexe if required, yet being equally suitable as one large family home. Many of the rooms are dual or even triple aspect and thus the accommodation is filled with natural light. Reroofed in recent years and well maintained throughout the property is available on the market now due to our client's need to downsize and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

In all the accommodation comprises; entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, lobby, utility/w.c., conservatory and en-suite bedroom to the ground floor with four bedrooms, bathroom and additional w.c. to the first floor. To the front of the property is a large driveway which provides ample parking and which is flanked by lawn interspersed with a variety of shrubs. The driveway leads around to the side and ultimately gives access to the double garage. At the rear is a private, south facing garden where there are views out over the countryside. Early viewing is advised.

Probus is a thriving community approximately six miles east of Truro and about eight miles west of St. Austell. The village boasts a good range of facilities for everyday needs including Parish Church, primary school, doctors surgery, general stores with post office, Public House village hall, Indian restaurant, Chinese takeaway and even a fish and chip shop. A regular bus service connects both Truro and St. Austell and here there are a wider range of facilities including banks, building societies, shops, schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The village is also easily accessible to the Roseland Peninsula and hence a number of beaches along the south Cornish coast.
