Full description

Delightful GRADE II LISTED DETACHED 4 bedroom house dating back to the 17th century and offering much CHARACTER and CHARM throughout and a gorgeous ESTABLISHED GARDEN. Buckshead House is just minutes from TRURO CITY CENTRE and has enormous potential with the PRIVATE and GENEROUS GARDENS which could be divided to create a BUILDING PLOT and the detached 2 STOREY outbuilding which is ideal for conversion into a SELF CONTAINED ANNEX, both of which would be subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents.


Grade II Listed, Buckshead House is positioned at the head of the much sought after Bodmin Road in Truro and has an abundance of features including beamed ceilings, window seats, shutters, open fires and beautiful cornicing to name a few. The enormous potential it has will appeal to wide range of potential buyers who are looking for a unique home that has income potential and a superb location close to the city centre.

The ground floor offers an entrance hall, large kitchen/diner with original flagstone flooring, snug with open fire, office, living room with wood burner and a grand stone surround, doors lead off to a wraparound conservatory which opens onto the substantial rear garden.
The first floor offers a large family bathroom with roll top bath and double shower and 4 bedrooms, one of which is the impressive dual aspect master bedroom with fireplace, en-suite and built in wardrobes.

Externally to the front there is a courtyard style garden with established shrubbery which allows the house privacy. The private rear garden is delightful, of a very good size and has lots of interesting features including wildlife ponds, grass areas, mature shrubs and specimen trees which help create a colourful and inviting sanctuary in which to sit and relax. In the corner of the garden and hidden from the house you will find a lovely summer house and seating area.

Due to the size of the garden there is potential to create a building plot subject to the necessary planning permission.  
To the side of the property there is a Grade II Listed, 2 storey outbuilding which  is currently connected to the main house by an undercover area which has a storage room previously used as a spa and a workshop. This could be converted to create separate self-contained living accommodation subject to obtaining planning permission. 

There is gated off road parking to front of the property and a space to the side. 


This property is nicely positioned on the sought after Bodmin Road on the eastern side of Truro. The popularity of Bodmin Road is evident due to the fact that properties seldom come to the market.
