Why You'll Like It
This exceptional Grade II Listed Truro town house is thought to date from 1830 and retains much of its original character while having been modernised enough to suit contemporary family life. The property is unique in its combination of proximity to the city centre, large, sunny walled garden and copious parking and is a highly desirable city residence. Located on the corner of Falmouth Road and Barrack Lane, The Thomas Daniell Pub is just a short stroll away and the city centre is a pleasant walk down historic Lemon Street from the property. The property has a gravelled front garden enclosed by low walls and railings with an ornate gateway. The front elevation is a grand double fronted Georgian façade with attractive detailing and multipaned sash windows. Inside, there's an entrance vestibule and the inner hallway has a grand staircase with tall arched window to the half landing perfectly framing the view of the Richard Lander monument. The original ground floor area comprises three elegant reception rooms with abundant period detail and a modern refitted kitchen with polished granite work surfaces, undermounted sink and a gas fired Rayburn stove. The fridge / freezer is built into a tower unit and there is a built-in microwave and dishwasher. To the rear of the ground floor is a large conservatory extension with glass roof, underfloor heating and bi-folding doors to the sunny patio. The conservatory is a lovely space and has the property's original well preserved under toughened glass as a feature. The well has a pump to water the garden and lights installed. To the end of the conservatory there is a ground floor WC, a separate utility room and a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room and French doors to the garden. Up on the first floor the house has an impressive landing with linen press /store cupboard and views of the Lander monument and Truro Cathedral spire. There are five first floor bedrooms with bedroom one having an en-suite shower room and views towards Truro School. The family bathroom is tiled from floor to ceiling and beautifully appointed with a modern bath suite. Outside at the rear the grounds are enclosed by high stone walls. There is a side pedestrian gate to Barrack Lane and vehicular access is via an electric roller shutter door in the garden wall at the end. The large sunny stone patio is the perfect entertaining space and the remaining garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with attractive planting, lawn with sweeping gravel path and wildlife pond. The property has a very large parking area and there is a stone garage / barn which may have future potential (subject to any necessary consents). This beautiful period house truly is one of a kind and must be viewed.
