A first floor apartment situated in a glorious position fronting the Truro River and enjoying superb southerly views of the water and the wooded river banks beyond.
Victoria Quay was built in the late 1980s and comprises 26 beautiful apartments arranged over three floors. Careful thought clearly went into the original design and maximum advantage was made of the idyllic location with the sitting room and master bedroom both overlooking the river.
A shared entrance hall with stairs from the parking area lead up to the front door of the apartment. The inner hall leads to all rooms of the property. A large open plan sitting and dining room is a superb place to entertain, or simply whiling away the hours looking at the view! A window seat under a bay window offers 180 degree views up and down the river. A glazed door opens to the balcony. A glazed balustrade offers uninterrupted viewing, whilst removable windows above allow the balcony to be used all year.
The kitchen, at the rear of the apartment, has been replaced within the last 2 years by the current owner. A range of matching cabinetry run along both sides of the kitchen allowing for plenty of storage. The countertop extends beyond the cabinets at one end to create a small breakfast bar. The kitchen incorporates a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and microwave and hob with extractor over. A 1 1/2 bowl sink with drainer is below a window looking over the parking area.
There is a family bathroom and two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an updated en-suite shower room with modern fittings. A pair of French doors open out to the balcony from the master bedroom.
Updated by the current owner, this apartment is ready to move in and offers lock-up-and-go waterfront living with the added benefit of a private pontoon.
Victoria Quay is situated on a small promontory beside the Truro River near its confluence with the Tresillian River. The apartment is situated on the first floor and has excellent views of the river and across to the river bank opposite which is clothed with mature woodland.
The countryside here is lush and unspoiled; small wonder that the surroundings are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the river a Special Area of Conservation, the banks a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the river and woodland an Area of Great Scientific Value, all offering protection against further development. The locality is both tranquil and peaceful and often the only audible sounds are calls from wading birds or from the heronry on the opposite bank. Mullet swim around the pontoons just under the surface and occasionally otters are seen crossing the river.
There are delightful walks along the footpaths in the area, extending to Truro in the one direction or to St Clement if heading north and passing the Heron public house on the way. The Truro River leads into the Carrick Roads and waters of the Fal estuary which provide excellent sailing and other water sports.
Nearby Truro is a Cathedral city and contains both national retailers, local specialist shops and a choice of private and public sector schooling; golf courses will be found at Treliske or Killiow. A mainline railway station connects with Paddington while Newquay Airport provides regular scheduled flights to Gatwick and Stansted.
A brick paved drive leads through double iron gates and gives access to a double length carport providing space for parking two cars. The owner has a private storage locker here as well. On the south (water) side of the building below the apartment is a storage room with electricity connected, useful for sailing equipment or bicycles etc.
There is ample shared visitor parking and a shared refuse building. The communal grounds surround the properties and include a landscaped bank leading up to the Malpas Road and a broad paviour terrace on the south side providing superb views of the water. Below the terrace lie the pontoons with a reserved mooring for each apartment catering for a craft with a maximum length with 26' and a beam of 9'
