The Property - Offered for sale for the first time in twenty years, Philip Martin are delighted to bring to the market this beautiful example of a Victorian character property occupying a sought after position on a quiet, no-through road being particularly close to the city centre, Truro School and Archbishop Benson Primary School. This is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase one of Truro's finest character residences. Notably light and spacious, the property retains a wealth of original features, including high ceilings, stained glass windows, tall skirtings, ceiling mouldings, sash windows, original architraves and panelled doors. We understand the property was built in the 1880s and originally belonged to the Diocese of Truro. Whilst well maintained it offers further scope for reconfiguration and remodelling to create a spectacular family home. There is also a very large loft with potential for conversion into further accommodation (subject to consent) and previous planning permission (now lapsed) for a double garage at the rear.

Externally the gardens are a true delight with a large area laid to lawn with mature trees, palms and planted borders to the front elevation, and to the rear elevation is a generous parking area providing off road parking for several vehicles which is a tremendous asset in this location. Internally, the two storey accommodation provides; reception hall, sitting room, reception room/bedroom, cloakroom, shower room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and WC to the ground floor, with four bedrooms, box room and a family bathroom to the first floor. Other benefits include gas central heating, a comprehensive alarm system with monitored smoke detectors and carbon monoxide sensors and no onward chain. An internal inspection is strongly recommended to fully appreciate all that this delightful period property has to offer.
