An incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a large bungalow on a plot of nearly 3 acres on the outskirts of the city of Truro. Subject to planning this site could have great development potential
IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
This one-storeyed property appealed because of it's convenient layout, its location, surrounded by trees which afford privacy and the garden of nearly three acres which provided space for so many out-door activities associated with family life - BBQ's, walking the dog, children's parties and general enjoyment of a colourful and well thought out garden.
The outbuildings provide garaging, storage, hobby room and workshop.
Accessibility to Truro makes the normal exigencies of daily life easily manageable: shopping, schooling, medical care and entertainment are within walking distance."
Beautifully located within its own landscaped grounds of nearly 3 acres yet within easy reach of the city centre of Truro, this is a very rare property for the market.
A front entrance porch opens in to a central reception hall. To one side, a door leads to the large eat-in kitchen. A range of contemporary units run along two walls, below a window overlooking the rear garden. A matching peninsula of cabinets effectively creates separation between the preparation area and dining area. A four oven gas-fired Aga has pride of place.
There is a good sized utility room adjoining the kitchen which has doors leading out to a family room/garden room which is mostly glazed and overlooks the rear courtyard, together with a retractable ladder to the extensive attic.
Adjoining the kitchen is the large triple aspect sitting room. French doors open out to the garden and the large windows allow plenty of natural light to flood in. A feature fireplace with granite surround and hearth with log fire creates a focal point. This room is more than large enough for a dining area in addition to the seating area.
Wrapping around the sitting room is a large decked area overlooking the grounds.
The house has a number of double bedrooms, three of which are accessed from a hallway leading from the reception hall. One of these has an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom in this wing.
The master suite is separate to the other bedrooms and has an en-suite bathroom.
Finally there is a useful sized office, which might also be able to be used as an additional bedroom.
GROUNDS AND GARDEN
An electronically gated drive leads through the front gardens and up to the house. Mature planting offers privacy, despite its edge-of-city location.
To the front of the property there is ample parking, while the drive leads on to the detached double garage.
The gardens around the house are a true asset to the property. A large garden which is predominantly level, and offers distant views of the city of Truro in the valley below. The lawns wrap around the house creating a private park like garden. To the rear of the house is a more casually maintained garden, treated more as a recreational space, and shielded from the house by a row of trees. There is a separate gated entrance from the lane in to this part of the garden offering the opportunity of using this area for the storage of a boat, or alternately creating a more formal paddock for a pony.
The grounds and gardens have the potential for re-development subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions as there is sufficient space for a small scale housing development in an area which would be highly desirable.
The lane which leads from Kenwyn Hill to the property continues immediately into the countryside. This offers purchasers the opportunity for country and woodland walks on their doorstep. Heading in the other direction leads to the city itself.
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.
The property has gas central heating and is on mains water and drainage.
The hydrotherapy pool in an all weather enclosure could be made available. Other fixtures and fittings are available by separate negotiation.
