Constructed circa 2002 by the extremely highly regarded Rosemullion Homes, 'Blue Cottage' is a quite exceptional detached house, providing impeccably presented 3 bedroom, 2 shower room accommodation, with garage, parking and exquisitely stocked and landscaped gardens, in this small, select yet little-known close, in the sheltered, private and quiet grounds of the exclusive Alverton Manor Hotel, yet with Truro city centre just a few minutes' walk away.

The Property

Constructed circa 2002 by the highly regarded developers, Messrs Rosemullion Homes, 'Blue Cottage' is one of just eight properties in this small and highly select close of detached houses, 'hidden' from the outside world, yet within just a few minutes' walk of Truro's superb shopping, commercial and leisure amenities.

Accessed through the tree-lined grounds of the exclusive Grade II Listed 4 star Alverton Manor Hotel, the property occupies a delightful setting with no through traffic and quite exceptional gardens which, to the rear, are well enclosed, extremely private and feature a large pond with Japanese-style garden, overhanging tree and extensive sun decking.

Beautifully maintained and improved by our client, the accommodation features double glazing and comprehensive gas fired central heating throughout with hardwood internal doors to rooms which, in brief, comprise a glazed entrance porch, broad reception hall, lounge with open fireplace, superb full depth double aspect kitchen/diner, interconnecting utility room with door to the attached garage, ground floor cloaks/shower room and third bedroom - currently used as a sitting room/study, and to which our client has added a small sun room.

Upstairs, there are two well proportioned double bedrooms, both of which are double aspect and feature built-in wardrobes, together with access to extensive eaves storage areas. A second shower room serves these two bedrooms and off the landing there is also a large walk-in wardrobe/storage cupboard.

In all, a quite exceptional home, faultless throughout. An early viewing appointment is therefore strongly recommended.
