Accommodation comprises; spacious entrance hallway, lounge/dining room with open fire, modern kitchen/dining room with integrated appliances, a sunny triple aspect conservatory, 3 double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally there is a driveway providing off-street parking for several cars and a separate detached garage. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this individual property.
The city of Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall, with the famous Cathedral lying at its heart. The City offers a unique mix of independent shops and multiples as well as an excellent collection of art galleries, bars, restaurants, night clubs, cinema, The Hall for Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall Museum. The city is steeped in history and features many wonderful Georgian terraced streets which are rivalled only in the west by Bath. There are also a number of fine municipal gardens including Boscawen Park and Victoria Gardens, which have in the past won many awards in the Britain In Bloom competition. The city also lies at the centre of the Cornish transport network and has a mainline station to London Paddington.
Upon entering the property you are greeted by a spacious entrance hallway with attractive stain glass windows out to the front. The three double bedrooms are all accessed off here, as is the lounge/ dining room, kitchen/dining room and family bathroom. The lounge is well proportioned and eyes are immediately drawn to the feature fireplace with an open fire. A set of patio doors lead out to the rear of the property and there are a set of additional doors leading through to the conservatory. The conservatory is a fantastic addition to the property and benefits from distant countryside views and increases the living area considerably. The sun moves around during the afternoon and into the evening flooding this room with plenty of light. The kitchen/dining room has been updated and includes Black Star Galaxy worktops and high gloss soft closing wall and base units. The room also benefits from an integrated fridge freezer, washing machine and dish washer. The family bathroom has a separate corner shower and oversize bath.

The gardens are beautiful and consist of a wide variety of trees, plants and shrubs. Parking is found to the side of the plot and the driveway leads to a separate large single garage with vaulted roof and electric roller door. A series of shallow steps lead up to the front door. The front garden is terraced and still offers a good degree of privacy. A pathway leads around the property and there are side gates to each side providing access into the rear gardens. This area is mainly laid to lawn with a central feature pond. A breakfast patio off the kitchen dining room offers a secluded private area and there is an additional patio to the side of the property with an attractive outbuilding providing storage.

The current vendors have looked into the possibility of creating further bedrooms in the roof space. The proposed plans included two further double bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom.
