Situated nine miles west of the City of Truro and within four miles of the north Cornish coast surfing beaches, this former Vicarage is set in grounds of two acres and believed to date from the late 1840's.
Having been the subject of a major renovation project by the present owner, using traditional materials wherever possible, this elegant five bedroom, four reception roomed detached house offers versatile living accommodation on a grand scale.
Across the granite courtyard, the former coach house has been tastefully converted into a multi-vehicle garage with adjacent workshop facilities, all of generous proportions and situated over this complex is a one bedroom self-contained flat which is well appointed and mimics the ‘no expense spared’ approach used on the main property.
The property has a mains gas central heating system and the windows are all double glazed with the principal elevations in oak to include the lantern roof conservatory, leading on to an extensive patio which is ideal for outside entertaining.
Approached via a sweeping driveway there is ample parking, the formal gardens offer a high level of privacy and include an attractive pond and water feature with a slate roofed gazebo. The garden is mainly lawned with mature hedging. This stunning property has been formerly used as a wedding venue.
This prestigious family home is a beautiful example of the ecclesiastical architecture of the period, has retained most of its original features and is of the highest quality throughout and can only be appreciated by a closer inspection.
Truro, the administrative and cultural centre of Cornwall with its eclectic mix of national and specialist shops is within ten miles, Falmouth on the south coast which is famed for its sailing waters and is home to Cornwall’s University complex is a similar distance and the north coast beaches at Portreath and Porthtowan are within four miles. Newquay Airport with international and national flights is only twenty miles distant. The A30 trunk road is within a mile and a mainline Railway Station with direct links to London and the north can be found at Redruth as will schooling for all ages which is within walking distance.
