Semi detached three bedroom house with breath taking views of the river, being sold with no onward chain. Situated in the sought-after village of Malpas and requiring updating.


Humberts are delighted to bring to the market this semi detached, spacious three bedroom property occupying an elevated position in the sought after village of Malpas. The property affords breath taking river views from both floors and requires updating & modernising throughout, all the while offering tremendous potential to be a stunning home. The property, which is offered for sale with no onward chain, has been in our client’s family since its construction.

From the access road, a pathway meanders through the front garden which is adorned with mature trees and bushes, to the patio and front door. Entering the property takes you into a hallway, with the first door opening to the living room featuring a large front aspect window with views to the river. From the living room a door opens into the dining room, with front aspect windows and a door opening to the front patio. The dining room features original parquet flooring and has a door opening into the kitchen which would benefit from updating and from increasing the floor space. A rear aspect door opens out into the utility with plumbing for white goods and a hallway leading to a WC, workshop and a door opening to the front garden.

From the hallway the stairs rise to serve the first floor, opening onto a spacious landing affording generous natural light. The master bedroom is a good double and features front aspect windows with views over the river and surrounding countryside. The 2nd bedroom again is of a good size and features windows with a door opening onto a balcony providing superb views up and down the river. To the rear elevation is the third bedroom with a rear aspect window. Completing the first floor is a bathroom featuring a bath and wash hand basin, with a separate WC.

Externally the gardens offer a tremendous amount of potential if some of the areas were cleared, with plenty of space for decking or patios, all whilst retaining a good degree of privacy. There are several level areas with garden sheds and space for storage. There is also a garage included with the sale, which is located nearby in a block of three garages.

Malpas is situated two miles downriver from Truro City and is a very sought after village, with the local public house The Heron Inn at its centre. Malpas is widely known for its safe anchorage and mooring facilities, there are also several pleasure boats which regularly disembark passengers at the nearby slipway. The whole area is also designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The city of Truro and the nearby Boscawen Park is less than a five minute drive (15 minute flat walk) and here there is a wide range of shops, schools, restaurants, banks, building societies and the main line railway link to London (Paddington). Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants, bars, private and state schools, and main line railway link to London (Paddington).

From Truro, take the exit off Trafalgar roundabout and proceed on Malpas Road. Continue past Truro Cricket Club and Boscawen Park until you enter the village of Malpas. Continue through the village, and follow the road round up and to your left. Continue along a short distance and the property will be found on your right hand side.
