Description This lovely home has been extended and upgraded by its current owners over the years. In doing so they have created an extremely light and spacious character home offering extensive and adaptable accommodation ideal for expanding families, those with dependant relatives or for taking advantage of the great location by offering B&B. Currently the accommodation features a conservatory entrance to the front which in turn leads in to a reception hall large enough in part to use as a home office. From this room stairs ascend to the first floor, whilst downstairs there is a sitting room with stone fireplace, a magnificent open plan kitchen/dining area/ living area the focal points of which are the dramatic vaulted ceiling and the feature inglenook style fireplace with a fitted multi fuel burner. The main bathroom which incorporates a 4-piece suite with separate shower cubicle, and the utility room are also downstairs. On the first floor there are three lovely double bedrooms one of which not only has an en-suite shower room/WC but French doors opening out on to a balcony taking in a lovely view over the rear gardens.

This is a home that offers many income opportunities because it comprises 4 acres part of which would lend itself to touring van pitches subject to relevant permissions and regulations. Then there is the detached barn that has consent to convert to a separate dwelling ideal for additional family or letting. There is a huge 40' square modern barn/workshop enabling somebody to work from home or simply pursue hobbies. In addition to all this there are two further paddocks with stabling which the current owners have let out.

Set back from the road but with direct access and frontage on to one of the main roads in and out of Truro means that within a three mile radius are the hospital at Treliske, local schooling and a multitude of other shops, businesses and facilities. Needless to say the property is on a bus route enhancing the easy access in to the City and to many other towns in the County plus the north Cornish coastline and beaches. For those travelling further afield the nearby A30 will be a distinct advantage.
