Lemon Gardens, a modern and exclusive development of just eight detached properties completed in 2015 by Blue Cedar Homes, is situated at the end of a private drive and located within a quiet, leafy and traffic-free position within walking distance of the centre of Truro, local church, health park and well-regarded public house.
This hidden gem of high-quality homes is designed specifically for people 65 years and over. Set within landscaped gardens and mature trees providing tranquillity and peace, this fine development is situated within a short distance of all the conveniences of the vibrant cathedral city of Truro with its history, culture, restaurants and shops – the perfect blend.
Lemon Gardens is located within one of the most desirable and highly-regarded areas of Truro. Falmouth Road is defined by its beautiful Victorian and Georgian architecture with the Lander Monument marking the beginning of Lemon Street with its celebrated Bath stone facades and restored Georgian terraces. (Richard Lemon Lander (1804-1834) was a Truro-born explorer of West Africa who was the first European to discover that the River Niger drained into the Atlantic).
Truro boasts a wide and varied mix of national and boutique retailers found within the pretty cobbled streets radiating out from the iconic Gothic Revival cathedral (1880 – 1910). An eclectic mix of restaurants, coffee shops and bars along with a cinema and art galleries, are complemented by the national-class Hall for Cornwall, which has recently reopened following a major refurbishment.
With countryside walks, golf, creeks, rivers, the north coast and sailing all within striking distance of Lemon Gardens, this really is the perfect place from which to enjoy a healthy, active and happy retirement.
