An immaculately presented 3 bedroomed bungalow in central Truro that has enjoyed a full renovation, now offering stylish modern luxuries and comfort.


Quietly nestled away on one of Truro’s most private and sought after streets, just a 5 minute stroll to Marks & Spencer and Lemon Quay is this beautifully renovated home. Having undergone substantial work in the last few years, this once typical bungalow has been extended and its layout adapted to cleverly utilise every bit of space. Brilliant additions of underfloor heating throughout, modern kitchen and bathrooms and a generous conservatory are a few examples of its abundance of style and comfort.

An entrance hall gives access to the utility room, garage and dining room. All principle rooms feed off the spacious central dining room which cleverly eliminates the need of an extra hall or corridor so often seen in bungalows. Adjacent to the kitchen and with room comfortably for an eight-seater table, this is a wonderful entertaining area that is beautifully presented with natural stone tiled floors which seamlessly continue through the kitchen and bathrooms.

The beautiful kitchen is well equipped with a stylish range of matching solid wood, floor and wall cabinetry with built in Neff dishwasher, fridge freezer, mid height electric fan oven, with gas hob and extractor over, all complemented by a polished granite worktop. There is excellent light aided by subtle grey tones in the tiled splash back and cabinetry plus a clever use of borrowed light from the entrance and dining room. The adjacent utility room houses the washing machine, dryer and hot water system.

The property enjoys three double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities. The master bedroom with picture window enjoys great light and looks out to the rear garden. There is a substantial range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower, fully tiled floor and walls and vanity unit. The second bedroom to the front with fitted wardrobes and Jack and Jill style en-suite shower room is appointed with the same style and class evident throughout the property and lends itself well as a guest suite. Bedroom three is a versatile space, currently used as a study/additional sitting room.

To the rear of the property is a comfortable living room with electric fire and granite hearth which enjoys beautiful light and opens to a substantial south facing conservatory extension. A great extra living space with a beautiful outlook and opens to the private, enclosed rear garden.


A valuable addition to this home is the creation of a substantial private driveway with parking for multiple vehicles, a rare luxury for a property in central Truro. The attractive brick paved driveway is pleasantly enclosed by attractive borders and leads up to an extended garage with electric roller door. Now large enough to house a good-sized car and still space for storage.

To the rear is a lovely south facing garden. Accessible from the conservatory, the garden is deliberately low maintenance and laid to mixture of chippings, a patio area and raised vegetable planters. The sense of privacy and tranquillity is pleasantly surprising for a central city location.

Services & council tax
The property is serviced by mains water, drainage and electricity with gas fired underfloor heating throughout. Council Tax Band – D.

Surrounding area

With a population of around 20,000 the city of Truro is intimate and friendly whilst offering a range of facilities that one would expect as Cornwall's capital. As well as its cathedral, 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.

Its parks and open spaces include Victoria Gardens and Boscawen Park. Truro is served by the Royal Cornwall Hospital and the Truro Health Park is situated only a few minutes walk from the property. Truro is an excellent central location to enjoy the whole county, 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. Golf courses will be found at Treliske or Killiow.
