We would encourage this qualification be done prior to viewing. Unconventionally constructed properties may require the involvement of an independent mortgage broker.
IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
"I found this home by accident after a day of viewing properties. September 1996… Moved in January 1997. Having the primary and secondary schools as well as the town centre so close by has meant this has been the perfect home for the past twenty-five years.
This attractive bungalow is located in a sought-after area of the city within easy reach of the city centre. Offering a large eat-in kitchen, separate sitting room, four good sized bedrooms and an adjoining studio annexe this is a very comfortable and flexible home. Steps lead up to the front door whose entrance hall leads to all principal rooms. There are two double bedrooms to one side of the house while the hall turns and leads to the rest of the accommodation. The central sitting room offers good views over the private front garden and has French doors which open to the full width, covered front veranda.
To the far side of the house are two further bedrooms. At the rear, with doors leading to the rear garden is a large eat-in kitchen. With a range of cream coloured base and wall mounted cabinets, there is an integrated oven with gas hob above, integral dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The sink sits below a window looking out to the garden. There is a laundry/utility room adjoining the kitchen which leads to the family bathroom.
There are three double bedrooms and a single bedroom in the main house as it is used currently. The double bedroom to the front of the house has a door leading to the annexe. This allows the annexe to be incorporated back into the main house as a master bedroom with en-suite, enlarged to create a true one bedroom annexe or used entirely independently. The annexe has its own private entrance and incorporates a double bedroom, kitchenette and shower room. The house has a large loft accessed from the front hall. This might offer options for extending the property subject to planning approvals.
Outside there is a block-built building in the corner of the plot which has a shower room and once housed a kitchen. This would make a superb home office or gym. With refurbishment it could also make better use of the views that its position would offer. There is also a large timber storage shed with power in the rear garden as well as a chicken coop and an outdoor gardeners loo. There is a patio area behind the house and steps and gravelled path lead up to the top of the garden where there are good views looking south down the valley towards Calenick. The front garden is bordered by mature trees and hedges creating privacy. It is a good size with plenty of space for children to play. The path to the front is gated.
There is a detached single garage to the front of the plot which has parking for additional cars in front.
The property occupies a very convenient rural position within easy reach of the city of Truro.
With a population of around 20,000 the city of Truro is intimate and friendly whilst offering the facilities and status that one would expect as Cornwall's capital. As well as its cathedral, with its distinctive spire, Truro is well-known for its excellent Georgian architecture (widely regarded as the best example west of Bath), its cobbled streets, vibrant shopping centre and well-stocked farmers' markets. Its parks and open spaces include Victoria Gardens, Boscawen Park and Daubuz Moors. Just nine miles from the south coast of Cornwall with its sandy beaches and breathtaking scenery,
Truro lies on the confluence of the rivers Kenwyn and Allen. They combine to form the Truro river that leads into the River Fal and then on to the large natural harbour of Carrick Roads. Surrounding the city is beautiful countryside and parkland including the historic Pencalenick and the ornamental Trelissick Gardens and Tregothnan which is further down the Truro River. Alongside the River Allen, close to the city centre, is a waterside park and south east of the city around Calenick Creek has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In the opposite direction, the River Fal and Carrick Roads offer excellent sailing for serious and hobby sailors alike and there are glorious beaches readily accessible on both coastlines with St Agnes around seven miles distant and the Roseland accessed by the nearby King Harry Ferry.
The property is offered freehold and has mains water and drainage and gas central heating. There is double glazing throughout. The property is in band D for council tax purposes while the studio/gym/office is rated A.
