Why You'll Like It
This truly exceptional Grade II Listed Lemon Street townhouse blends modern city living with a wealth of character and charm from a bygone era. Lander House was lovingly restored in 2020/21 from its previous use as an office building to the luxurious period home that we see today. The restoration and refurbishment was comprehensive including rewiring and replumbing, the installation of new quality kitchen and bathrooms, rebuilding the garage and landscaping externally including the installation of the electric gate. The property offers beautifully balanced voluminous accommodation with 9'6" ceilings to the ground floor rooms, four double bedrooms and the benefit of a useful attic space with two attic rooms. The front elevation is one of a handful of double fronted façades in the street, with a central pathway through the pretty front garden to an impressive panelled front door. Once inside, the hallway is wide and there is a dedicated illuminated niche for coats. Patterned tiles give way to rustic engineered oak flooring which extends into the kitchen. The stairway has a beautifully restored handrail and below stairs there's a useful cellar (where many may consider storing wine). The kitchen / dining / day room is a very large triple aspect space with an oversize stable door to the walled courtyard garden. The kitchen is equipped with a range of dove grey shaker style base, wall and island units topped with quartz solid work surfaces and an oak breakfast bar. The island has an undermounted sink and the Everhot range is the cosy heart of this beautifully proportioned space. There's a dishwasher and Neff microwave / combination oven built-in and space for an American style fridge / freezer. An archway through the original wall defines the dining space and light streams in from the tall multi-pane sash style windows. Throughout the property there are many super character features intact and restored including picture rails, ceiling roses and moulded cornicing alongside modern touches such as LED downlights and shutters. The living room has two distinctive spaces also with a sitting room to the front with bay window and Clearview wood burning stove and a snug area towards the rear again separated by an archway. Also on the ground floor is a useful utility room with butler style sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility doubles as a plant room where the Worcester mains gas central heating boiler and hot water cylinder are located. Heading up the impressive stairway we arrive at a half landing where there is a large shower room which is beautifully tiled and has a walk in shower and traditional style sanitaryware by Burlington. Further stairs ascend to the spacious landing. There are four generous double bedrooms located to the corners of the house and bedroom one has a grand en-suite shower room, again beautifully appointed. Bedroom two has a view over gardens and a 'Jack and Jill' style door to the family bathroom which has a roll top, claw foot bath. Heading up to the second floor, the attic space has two useful additional rooms with Velux style windows in the roof. Outside to the side and rear, the walled courtyard garden and parking wrap around the corner of Lemon Street and Barrack Lane with access to the single garage via an electric roller shutter door from Barrack Lane along with the sliding electric gated access to the parking. The garden space has been thoughtfully landscaped for ease of maintenance with areas of patio optimised for the sun at different times of day. There's parking on the resin coated driveway for a number of vehicles and the garage has a glazed access door to the rear. There are very few fine period homes of this quality in Truro that have been recently restored and modernised to such a high standard making this a truly special home and the landmark monument to intrepid explorer Richard Lander makes the perfect talking point reminding us of the city's rich history.
Where It Is

There are a number of lovely restaurants nearby including The Longstore and Mannings and Lemon Street Market has an eclectic mix of independent shops and a lovely café. Truro city centre and all it has to offer is a short walk away with the towering neo-gothic cathedral at the heart surrounded by a delightful mix of local and national retailers, restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars. The recently rebuilt Hall For Cornwall is Cornwall's theatre and is situated at the end of the street where you will also find 'The Piazza' or Lemon Quay which is a large open space hosting twice weekly farmers' markets and many other cultural events including craft markets and food festivals etc. Schooling nearby is excellent with Truro School and Truro High School both walkable from here along with a choice of primary schools etc. Supermarkets nearby include Sainsbury's and Lidl and there is a bus station at Lemon Quay along with bus stops in Falmouth Road / Lemon Street.
