A prominent and grand Edwardian Gentleman’s Residence with excellent space, proportions and natural light, located in perhaps Truro’s most sought after location. The property has five/six bedroomed accommodation arranged over three floors with gardens to front and rear and is presented for sale to exacting standards.
We believe this fabulous home was built in 1904 with stone elevations and therefore is a classic early Edwardian/Late Victorian home with incredibly well proportioned rooms with height and elegance. Neutrally decorated to a high standard, the accommodation is arranged over three floors with fireplaces, cornicing, high skirtings and bay windows with sashes – all classic features of the era. On the ground floor are four reception rooms providing the ability to work from home, if required and with two staircases the property also provides flexible accommodation for dual living or a guest suite. The property has gas central heating and enjoys some views across the city and countryside from several rooms. We conclude this is one of the finest houses of this era that Truro has to offer!
Kenwyn is a suburb of Truro, located north of the City with the Anglican Church, reputedly Truro’s oldest church dating to 1259. Kenwyn Road contains many of Truro’s grandest city homes within a short walk of the Railway Station and the well renowned Truro School about one mile away. Access out of Truro by road is also easy with the A30 approximately three miles away too.

To the front is a walled garden with gated access directly onto Kenwyn Road with a gravel pathway providing access to the front door. There is a gently sloping lawn with mature trees, shrubs and bushes planted that provides screening from the road. The pathway also continues to the side where a gate opens on Cyril Road. Five steps lead down to two parking spaces, where the owners inform us they have parked their cars for the entire ownership of the home. This area is not owned by the property and is owned by the Enys Estate. The owners pay no rent for this and have maintained this during their ownership.
The rear garden is accessed from either a gate down the side of the property or from the kitchen or the music room. There is a large level patio ideal for alfresco dining/barbecues. A trellis entrance leads to the lawn which has attractive borders and in turn leads to a nice deck for further relaxation and enjoying the sunshine. A further area to the side where the owners have installed a large hot tub (which is available potentially by separate negotiation). There is a generous drying area with a door into the:-
Pitched roof. Light and power connected. Further small parking space to the front of the garage, both of which are accessed from Cyril Road.

Proceed over the roundabout under the railway bridge and into Kenwyn Road. Ennore will be found on your right hand side and is easiest turning into Cyril Road with Ennore then being the first house (gable end onto the road) on your left.
