The Property - 20 Bosvean Gardens is a very large semi-detached house located in a convenient and much sought after residential development within Truro city.

A driveway provides parking for a couple of cars, there is a garage/workshop and useful garden shed. An internal viewing is thoroughly recommended.

Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants, bars, private and state schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington).
