Why You'll Like It
Quite simply, The Old Chapel offers "the best of both worlds" - a spacious rural retreat that is close to the facilities of a small City, and not far from the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Approached over a generous driveway, the property has been carefully extended and maintained over the years resulting in a large family home with practical living space in a spectacular setting. A central hallway makes a fine introduction and divides the living space into two well defined areas. The sitting room has a feature fireplace with a woodburner and an exposed stone wall which gives a slightly rustic feel and a sense of character. Double doors open through to the conservatory which in turn has doors opening onto the garden. This whole area flows well and it's easy to imagine a family enjoying cosy winter evenings by the fire and the lighter summer evenings in the conservatory. A kitchen/day room forms the hub of the home with a range of Maple units and a Rayburn. There is plenty of space for a large dining room table and chairs and the utility room is conveniently just off the kitchen and has a door to the garden. Also off the kitchen/day room is a study/den - ideal for working from home or as a children's play room. At the bottom of the stairs, there's a shower room/WC. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom/WC plus an additional separate washroom/WC. It is worth noting that an efficient and up to date electric heating system has been installed which complements the Rayburn and the wood burner. Outside there is a fantastic chalet style cabin which is insulated offering numerous possibilities and also within the beautiful landscaped gardens you will discover a vegetable plot and through a delightful trellis arch there is an outdoor swimming pool which is large and yet not too deep. In addition there is a super field which is adjacent to the property which offers scope for keeping animals and really adds to this rural idyll, in all approximately 2.3 acres.
Where It Is
Idless is a pretty hamlet on the outskirts of Truro. Within the blink of an eye you can leave the city behind by heading about a mile along a country lane where you'll discover individual properties scattered through a tranquil valley. Much of the adjacent land is maintained by the Forestry Commission and the woods are available for everyone to enjoy whether you are a keen mountain biker, enjoy a spot of orienteering or simply want to walk the dog. The walk into the city centre is a pleasant one and a level foot/cycle path follows the valley basin linking the city centre to the start of the "Quiet Lane" to Idless. Once in the City, there are a range of independent and national retailers, cinema, bars, restaurants and theatre. The mainline train station has a regular service to London and the north of England.
