Character, charm and class. This beautifully unique former friary offers privacy, convenience and deceptively spacious accommodation and is finished with wonderful style.
This beautiful unique former friary has been the canvass for fine design, style and attention to detail. The current owner has created an incredibly comfortable home that balances charming Victorian features whilst adding a modern yet rustic décor. A fantastic sense of privacy, peace and tranquillity is enjoyed both in and outside the home which is a rare quality for a property in the centre of Truro.
A clever front door arrangement is set at the entrance to the courtyard front garden immediately creating seclusion and privacy within the city. The genuine entrance to the property opens to a spacious hallway that leads to the living room, enjoying a dual aspect feel with a large window to the front and borrowed light from the 2nd entrance/utility. The tone of period class and characterful style is set from here with rustic exposed hardwood floor and solid wooden doors whilst immaculate Victorian cornicing and ceiling rose instantly catch the eye.
The kitchen to the rear is fitted with beautiful bespoke duck egg blue units with copper coloured handles. There is an Inset electric oven with 4 ring gas hob and extractor over, breakfast bar and space for free standing fridge freezer. Naturally there is yet more characterful style through exposed brick work and stone feature wall which offers a pleasant contrast vs the modern kitchen cabinetry.
A fantastic additional reception room in what was a 2 up-2 down offers a beautiful dining area, again with detailed exposed stone. This room enjoys great light via a part glazed stable door and a sky light.
The additional entrance opens to a handy space, maximised as a utility area for stacked washing machine and dryer. Beyond is a super stylish shower room benefitting from an excellent eye for detail.
First floor accommodation comprises two fantastic bedrooms. The second offering a generous double with exposed wooden floor, built in storage and great light adding to the already present sense of space. The surprising room proportions of this deceptively spacious house are none more evident than in the master bedroom. There is ample built in storage, space for free standing furniture and still enough room for a super king bed! Furthermore, there is a substantial en-suite bathroom with a gorgeous deep green clawfoot bath complimented by traditional style sanitary ware. The unique nature of the property is highlighted by period features, like the Victorian bedroom fire place with stunning ornate surround balanced by a more contemporary style decor.
A low maintenance courtyard garden to the front appreciates complete privacy and is unbelievable quiet given the city centre location. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs for a morning coffee or alfresco dining and with the front gate acting as the main entrance, total seclusion creates a wonderful tranquil space to enjoy.
There are 2 private parking spaces with the property in the neighbouring church car park.

As well as its cathedral, with its distinctive spires, 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. Just across the road is the hidden gem of Victoria Gardens, a beautifully manured public garden with seating areas and a band stand within a plethora of exotic plants and shrubs.
Truro offers a range of leisure facilities, sports teams and a golf course with even more offerings on the coast. The excellent central location makes the whole county easily accessible with the sandy beaches of either coast approx. 10 miles away. Closer still are a plethora of Creekside villages to explore, especially for keen water sport and sailing enthusiasts, the likes of Loe Beach, Feock and Mylor are a hive of activity.
Truro Railway Station, just a moments walk, connects with Falmouth and is also on the mainline to London Paddington while Newquay Airport (20 miles) provides regular scheduled flights to national airports now including Heathrow as well as international destinations.
