Property description

Set comfortably in very generous sub tropical gardens with a wealth of plants, palms and fruit trees, this is a true oasis in the heart of the City. An exceptional family home retaining original character features with the addition of modern creature comforts. The property has three bedrooms with an en-suite master bedroom, generous bay fronted living room, conservatory, and modern fitted kitchen with range. Large garage & parking. So convenient yet remarkably secluded.

Why You'll Like It
A real hidden gem in the heart of the City and for sale for the first time in 28 years, Penalverne is a large family home set in a generous enclosed plot in the highly sought after School Lane. When you walk through the gate you begin a voyage of discovery, pretty brick pathways take you to different parts of this wonderful garden from the vegetable patch, grassy areas and hidden summer houses. You'll find an array of plants, palms and shrubs - even a banana tree! Penalverne is set back and on one side within the grounds. When you are inside the first thing that strikes you is the spacious feeling due to the high ceilings. The living space is well proportioned and greatly enhanced by the conservatory. The kitchen leads through to a larger than average utility room with a cloakroom just off it. Two of the bedrooms are doubles and the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is presently used as a study but it would make a decent single. Outside there are two of the most gorgeous summer houses - in need of some renovation but one has a pretty original tiled flooring and stained glass. There is a large garage and a gated parking area.

Where It Is
School Lane is conveniently found just off Falmouth Road in Truro immediately below Truro High School. Having turned right into School Lane, follow the road and you will see our for sale board on the left hand side. At the end of School Lane there is a handy footpath leading on to Falmouth Road. With all the amenities of the city just a short stroll away, Penalverne is in a fabulous position.
