THE OWNERS WORDS
7 Avondale Road is located on a friendly, quiet no-through road and is perfectly located for city living. It has excellent transport links and is within walking distance of Truros amenities. The property has a blend of original period features alongside contemporary living which makes for a comfortable and stylish home.
A gorgeous example of a period home with contemporary additions, boasting traditional detail but seamlessly adapted to suit modern family life. This surprisingly spacious 3-bedroom family home within half a mile of the city centre comes with the added benefit of planning in perpetuity for a loft conversion with rooflights to create extra accommodation (planning Ref: PA03/0604/09/R)
Although the current owners have made vast improvements with modern additions, the level of retained period features is quite stunning, immediately striking with a beautifully maintained geometric style tiled hallway possibly the most classic Victorian feature you hope to see.
This leads to the kitchen but firstly opens to the now semi-open plan living/dining room. Traditional features and charm are pleasantly balanced with the modernised living arrangement. The owners have cleverly opened the typical Victorian two reception room layout to create a beautiful space, with the dining area now benefiting from excellent light from the characteristically large bay window to the front. The well-proportioned and comfortable living area with high celling, picture rails and ornate ceiling rose is centred around a beautiful working open fire with slate hearth. The hard wood floor dining area easily holds an 8-seater table and chairs and enjoys borrowed light from the breakfast room.
Inventive extensions to the rear have transformed what was a modest mid terrace home to create light and spacious social areas for the family, with practical additions too.
The beautiful modern kitchen/breakfast room with double glazed doors to the garden gains extra light from 2 solar powered electric Velux windows. The kitchen comprises a sleek range of matching floor and wall cabinetry and drawers and breakfast bar with cupboards and seating. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, fridge freezer, mid-level AEG electric double oven and induction hob with stylish stainless-steel extractor over. All complimented by a polished white solid quartz worktop.
Beyond, a hall with further outside access also leads to a w/c with part tiled walls and a substantial utility boiler room which duals excellently as a drying area and is fitted with a range of floor and wall units, a worktop and sink with space for a washing machine.
Three bedrooms include two good doubles with room for free standing furniture. Bedroom 2 enjoys a feature fireplace and hard wood floors whilst the large windows offer great light whilst the typically high ceilings add a wonderful sense of space to the well-proportioned rooms.
The generous family bathroom with obscured windows to the side and rear is fitted and finished to an exemplary standard with great style and includes a bath, separate walk in double shower with glass screen and twin shower heads, 2 chrome heated towel rails, his and hers wash basin vanity unit, a choice of cupboards, tastefully tiled floor and partly tiled walls.
The enclosed split level rear garden offers a paved area immediately from the property and steps up to decking with pedestrian gated access to the rear. The low maintenance garden benefits from a large shed/workshop which is insulated with power and lighting.
Parking permits are available for residents.
