Property description

An imposing six bedroomed, double fronted, grade II listed town house within walking distance of Truro City centre. Found within an elegant terrace constructed in the mid 19th century of villa styled homes this is a fine example of an exceedingly well cared for home which has preserved many of its original features.

Externally there is also the added advantage of parking for four vehicles and having gardens to both the front and rear elevations.

Internally there is a majority gas central heating system, whilst particular features to note include, sash windows some with shutters, high skirtings, picture railings, ceiling roses, ornate cornicing and an exquisite curved staircase leading to the first and second floors. Offered with three reception rooms with fireplaces incorporating gas coal effect fires, a kitchen with an Aga, a ground floor cloakroom, and to the first floor there are two bathrooms both with showers. To the first floor there are the four main bedrooms, one of which has been previously used as an office and to the second floor there are two further attic bedrooms with exposed beamed ceilings.

From the front elevation there is an attractive outlook with angled Cathedral views. Within close proximity is the creek side village of Malpas which has a slipway for the launching of small craft and the renowned Heron Inn. It is extremely rare to find a property of this period that has retained many of its attractive features to such a high standard and the property has been extremely well cared for by our client's family. Being double fronted, the property offers spacious accommodation which is extremely versatile and for prospective purchasers looking to acquire a period town house conveniently situated for the City centre, a viewing is strongly recommended. It should also be noted that the property is to be sold with no on-going chain. Preliminary details
