Why You'll Like It 
Quite simply, The Old Chapel offers "the best of both worlds" - a spacious rural retreat that is close to the facilities of a small City, and not far from the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Approached over a generous driveway, the property has been carefully extended and maintained over the years resulting in a large family home with practical living space in a spectacular setting. A central hallway makes a fine introduction and divides the living space into two well defined areas. The sitting room has a feature fireplace with a woodburner and an exposed stone wall which gives a slightly rustic feel and a sense of character. Double doors open through to the conservatory which in turn has doors opening onto the garden. This whole area flows well and it's easy to imagine a family enjoying cosy winter evenings by the fire and the lighter summer evenings in the conservatory. A kitchen/day room forms the hub of the home with a range of Maple units and a Rayburn. There is...

Where It Is 
Idless is a pretty hamlet on the outskirts of Truro. Within the blink of an eye you can leave the city behind by heading about a mile along a country lane where you'll discover individual properties scattered through a tranquil valley. Much of the adjacent land is maintained by the Forestry Commission and the woods are available for everyone to enjoy whether you are a keen mountain biker, enjoy a spot of orienteering or simply want to walk the dog. The walk into the city centre is a pleasant one and a level foot/cycle path follows the valley basin linking the city centre to the start of the "Quiet Lane" to Idless. Once in the City, there are a range of independent and national retailers, cinema, bars, restaurants and theatre. The mainline train station has a regular service to London and the north of England.
