A four double bedroomed, bay windowed, Grade II listed detached cottage, being within a mere level approach of 3/4 of a mile to the City centre and having wide angled views over Truro River which is literally a stones throw from its front garden. The property has partial slate hanging to the exterior, partial sash windows, and a number of timber panelled walls and beams. Complimented by a mains gas central heating system and some double glazing, internally there are three spacious reception rooms with the lounge having a wood burner.
The accommodation to the ground floor also has a conservatory overlooking the side garden, a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, a separate w.C. And store. To the first floor, in addition to the family bathroom, the master bedroom has an en suite shower room.
Externally, the gardens are to all sides and are well established with a very good degree of privacy and are made up of lawns, terraces, vegetable and fruit areas and a copse, whilst to the side there is a gravelled driveway and a detached garage. Our clients have previously had planning permission for the accommodation to be extended to provide a two bedroomed annexe. Ref PA03/2310/06R.
