Why You'll Like It
This character cottage which is believed to be approximately 200 years old has been owned by the same family for the last 76 years. Renovated to a high standard in 1999/2000, the cottage was extended and extensively remodeled to create a larger than expected three bedroom cottage with surprisingly good ceiling heights and room sizes. There is planning permission granted to build a double garage as a replacement for the existing workshop and there is room to do this and retain the two parking spaces. This historic terrace faces approximately south and is elevated giving exceptional cathedral views. With majority double glazing, and gas central heating there are plenty of modern comforts to make this a super home.
The ground floor has a useful porch before you step into the wide inner hallway. The living room has a fitted gas fire and a super view of Truro Cathedral. There are display cabinets fitted to either side of the chimney breast adding character and storage. The hub of the home is the kitchen / dining room which has a range of high quality maple and cherry fronted units with quality appliances fitted including electric oven, fitted microwave, ceramic hob, gas hob, electric griddle with ducted extractor over and built under fridge. The Kitchen / Dining Room has a large granite inglenook style fire place with fitted gas stove in the style of a wood burner. There's a handy utility / passage way which leads to both the side of the cottage and the shared rear courtyard. From the kitchen the stairway rises to the large landing. There are three generous bedrooms, the master having a super cathedral view and bedroom two having a very high quality fitted wardrobe and dressing table combination. Bedroom three has a wardrobe built in as well. The bathroom is very large for a cottage and appointed to a very high standard with a double shower unit, corner bath and fitted cabinetry with the WC and basin built in. Outside to the front there is a pleasantly landscaped, sunny front garden, parking for two vehicles and a workshop / studio.
Where It Is
One of Truro's most prized Southerly facing terraces of character cottages with exceptional views across the city, having the beauty of Truro Cathedral as the focal point. Located a short distance up hill from the city centre on the Northern side of Truro, this location is very convenient for those wishing to walk into the town. There is a very well managed and highly regarded pub, The Rising Sun a short distance away and the favoured Archbishop Benson Primary School is also in this part of the city.
