Property description

A handsome Cornelius style property offering beautifully presented and spacious family accommodation close to the city centre. 3 Reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, 4/5 bedrooms (2 en-suite), roof rooms. Garage. Ample parking. Gardens. EPC Band E.


The ancient port and market town of Truro is situated in a valley at the head of a beautiful river bearing its name and is dominated by the splendid three spired cathedral which stands at its heart. Forming the retailing, administrative and cultural centre of Cornwall, the city offers a comprehensive range of retail and leisure amenities together with the county's leading educational facilities.
Standing on Tregolls Road, one of the most distinctive and well known of the city's streets, Pensilva is approximately half a mile walk into its bustling heart where there is a wide variety of restaurants, bistros and pubs together with a cinema and the Hall for Cornwall.
Public transport links are excellent with the train station linking directly with London Paddington.


Constructed in the 1930s, this Cornelius style residence is available on the open market for the first time in over twenty years and offers an outstanding opportunity to acquire a much admired and cherished family home.
Boasting a handsome south facing facade complete with an attractive eyebrow window, the property retains a plethora of period detailing including the original servants bells.
The spacious and flexibly arranged accommodation includes three reception rooms, a well appointed chestnut kitchen and comfortable reception hall on the ground floor whilst to the first floor is the master en-suite bedroom, three further bedrooms and shower/bathrooms. In addition there is a fifth bedroom which is independently accessed and considered suitable as a small studio annexe or indeed teenagers bedroom complete with a raised 'den' which is approached over a spiral staircase. Leading from the principal landing is a staircase that leads to an extensive roof room which again offers flexibility.
Outside, the property is approached over a tarmacadam driveway with ample parking and benefits from lawns and sun terraces to the front whilst to the rear is a paved patio with a higher level area incorporating two outbuildings.
