The Property - The Grainstore is a superb barn conversion which is virtually detached apart from a small corner attached to a neighbouring property. The property is situated within approximately 3 miles of Truro City centre yet in an idyllic rural location enjoying far reaching countryside views. The barn occupies a generous sized plot enclosed within dense boundaries and level grounds and a driveway provides plenty of parking and there is also a large single garage. The accommodation is on a reverse level principle and is immaculately presented throughout. In all the accommodation comprises farmhouse style kitchen, dining room and spacious sitting room with wood burning stove on the first floor. There are three bedrooms, master with en-suite shower room and dressing room as well as a family bathroom to the ground floor. The gardens are delightful and offer a high degree of privacy. Furthermore there is a wonderful vegetable garden with greenhouse and useful tool shed. This type of property in this particular geographic location is a rarity to the market and a viewing is essential.

Truro - The property is located within the parish of Kea which lies between Falmouth and Truro. 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).
