DETACHED COTTAGE, TWO STOREY BARN, GARDENS & WOODLAND Situated in a delightful location just 3 miles from Truro, surrounded by open countryside and the Killiow Estate. A wonderful package and very private. The accommodation provides a spacious family home with huge potential to create a detached annexe for dependent relative, holiday letting or long term rental.

General Comments - Chyshore lies within an exceptional rural setting just 3 miles from Truro, surrounded by open countryside and the Killiow Estate. Approached along an old farm lane which still runs through to the grounds of Killiow and which has been occasionally used by Killiow during our clients' ownership. The gardens and grounds provide a superb degree of peace and privacy and this type of opportunity is very rare especially in this geographical location. The detached 19th century cottage has been extended since its original form although it has retained all of it's inherent charm and warmth as a wonderful family home. There is huge potential to create further accommodation if required. The detached barn has previously had planning permission to create a two bedroom dwelling ideal for a dependent relative, holiday let or long term rental. Planning has since lapsed and a new application will need to be submitted. Opposite the barn is a former cart house now used as an open car port for two cars as well as a large store area and utility.

The Property - The accommodation offers a spacious rooms including a large reception room, study/4th bedroom, dining room and kitchen with Aga. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms the master with an en-suite shower room and dressing room as well as a family bathroom and W.C. The grounds include a large area of woodland as well as an orchard and mature, well established gardens. Furthermore there is an outdoor swimming pool which is an excellent addition to this property.

Location - The property is located part way between Truro and Falmouth on the outskirts of Carnon Downs and Playing Place, within a short distance of the creekside hamlets of Point and Penpol. Both Carnon Downs and Playing Place have an excellent range of village facilities including post office, food store, village hall, doctors surgery and regular bus service to Truro and Falmouth. Killiow golf course is close at hand and the area is well placed for easy access to the creek and sailing facilities of the Fal Estuary.

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).
