Why You'll Like It 
A timeless elegance and great architecture make for a simply charming period townhouse which is spacious and a lovely family home! Located in the city centre but set back and elevated away from street level, The Parade was built in the late Georgian / early Victorian era with this property thought to be approximately 170 years old or thereabouts. The property has been maintained and updated over time however there is a great deal of scope to further update and develop the property if desired. The front of the property is oriented perfectly for afternoon and evening sun and there's a sunny terrace and garden. The impressive front door opens into an L shaped hallway. The living room has a very high corniced ceiling, feature open fireplace and tall sash windows with patterned glass at the edges and there is secondary glazing fitted. A built-in cupboard in the corner of the living room makes use of some of the space under the stairs. There are two further under stairs cupboards...

Where It Is 
Located close to the Truro River between the city and Boscawen Park, Truro City centre is a level walk away. Truro has a fantastic array of shops, bars and restaurants as well as being home to The Hall For Cornwall (which is currently being transformed into a state of the art theatre), The Royal Cornwall Museum and the splendid Neo-Gothic Truro Cathedral. Boscawen Park is beautifully maintained and planted with spectacular flower beds and large expanses of open space. There are sports facilities with tennis courts, table tennis tables, children's play equipment and sports pitches as well as a choice of cafés. From Boscawen Park the riverside walk goes to Malpas via Sunny Corner where The Heron Inn is a waterside pub with a super view(or further to St Clements and Tresillian). Just over the road from The Parade, The Old Bakery provides a cultural hub with artists studios, exhibitions and various classes on offer as well as many performances and concerts etc. There is a...

Agent's note 
Before the current owner bought property the attic was converted into a quirky and quite unique suite with a large bedroom, hallway and shower room making a suite. The stairs to the attic are narrow and there is a lovely feature created by the light well which not only brings daylight to the landing below but also allows more natural light into the attic bedroom and shower room via opening internal windows which give the impression of looking out into a mediterranean courtyard! (It is thought to be unlikely that the conversion is compliant with modern building regulations). The attic has a lot more potential to exploit and further develop subject to any necessary planning requirements and listed building consent needed. It is worth noting that the neighbouring properties on either side have added dormer windows to their attics at the front.
