THE OWNER'S WORDS
In the 11 years since we have lived here we still admire the ever-changing views during the seasons, the amazing sunrises and sunsets and our furry friends who visit us, including deer on the Killiow Estate and two pheasants that wander around our garden.
It's a real family home and a great place to entertain either inside or out on the patio, a perfect place for a big party with the hot tub on. With no near neighbours in sight you feel like you have the world to yourself yet within 3 miles and 5 minutes you are in the heart of Truro city. Launching our boat at Loe Beach is so easy too with just an 8-minute drive which we will miss. It's easy to live here and every room gets used, compact yet lots of open space living.
We've grown lots of vegetables in our little allotment and have all day sun in the greenhouse for the chilli plants and tomatoes. In the surrounding fields we are always trying to guess which vegetables will be planted next season from cabbages, cauliflower and even daffodils. Whenever we drive from the roundabout at the top of lemon street towards Falmouth we look across and say, " that's our house on the top of the hill! Completely on its own and standing majestically for the world to see, we will very much miss you, but we have great memories.
