An impressive period residence with spacious accommodation and secluded gardens, set in one of the most desirable addresses in Truro. The property offers 4 spacious reception rooms, 6 bedrooms and comes complete with an additional garage with planning permission for accommodation over.
A very handsome Victorian residence, set in a wonderfully secluded position at the end of The Avenue, arguably the most desirable address in Truro. The property benefits from generous grounds with beautiful mature gardens affording a high degree of privacy, whilst enjoying views over the city to the cathedral. Thought to date from around 1890, the property displays a host of wonderful period features that provide great charm and character.
The driveway sets the scene as it sweeps to the front of the property with the well-established gardens making a very attractive backdrop, with many mature shrubs and a stunning copper beech tree set on the boundary. Positioned conveniently to the side, is the spacious double garage with ample space to store a boat. This building has planning permission (PA18/07893) for the creation of additional accommodation over, it could however, with the correct permissions, also offer alternative options as an annexe or potentially a consulting room or home office.
The entrance porch opens to the hallway which certainly makes a great first impression, with its original tiling and the fabulous staircase taking centre stage. The reception rooms are set either side with the spacious sitting room 29’10” x 12’8” featuring a lovely bay window, as well as its attractive fireplace. This opens through to the sun room which offers wonderful views of the garden and a glimpse of the spires of the cathedral. The snug opposite also features a lovely bay window and it would make a great office, or alternatively a games room for children or teenagers. The hallway opens through to the southerly facing dining room and in turn, into the kitchen which is nicely appointed with a beautiful Aga and central peninsula. To one side there is a useful utility room, as well as a room currently set out as a home gym.
The first floor offers four good-sized bedrooms as well as two dressing rooms, with obvious options to amend to create en suite facilities. The second floor offers a further two bedrooms with bedroom five being particularly spacious. These two bedrooms also benefit from a generous, well appointed bathroom.
