General Comments - Hytor is a substantial detached house offering well proportioned accommodation over three storeys. The property is beautifully presented and glossed wooden panelling adorning the walls to half height in the hall and stair ways is a real feature as well as a striking, bespoke fan window within the front entrance door in a stained glass peacock design. To the ground floor is an entrance hall, sitting room with open fireplace, dining room with fireplace (currently not in use), fitted kitchen, rear entrance vestibule with utility space and fitted Cornish dresser, sun lounge, loggia and a cloakroom whilst at first floor level there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom plus a huge further bedroom occupying the entirety of the second floor which has been used as a playroom, but which could be utilised as a fifth bedroom, a home office or hobbies/craft room. All windows are double glazed and there is a mains gas fired central heating system.
Hytor occupies an elevated, level plot much larger than one would anticipate and offers driveway parking for numerous vehicles as well as triple garaging - there is a detached single garage and a further detached double garage.
The gardens are totally private, a rarity for the city centre, and whilst there is a lawned garden safe for children and pets there is also a Mediterranean-inspired pool garden enclosed within high walled and fenced boundaries complete with a heated swimming pool, decked and paved sitting areas and also a pool room fitted with changing area, w.c. and shower as well as a jacuzzi and sauna.
This property presents a wonderful opportunity to purchase a substantial family house in the city - a home much loved by our clients during their 43 year ownership and now only for sale due to a need to downsize. Hytor is available to cash buyers only and is sold with vacant possession and no onward chain.

Location - Hytor is situated at the very top of Chapel Hill and occupies an elevated position affording privacy and an open outlook across the city including the Cathedral spires.
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). The Hall for Cornwall is also a popular venue providing all year round entertainment and other cultural facilities include the Royal Cornwall Museum and the historic Cathedral.
