A timeless and elegant late Georgian / early Victorian terraced period home of immense character with flexible accommodation of up to four bedrooms. Fabulous high corniced ceilings and many original features intact. Parking and garden.
A timeless elegance and great architecture make for a simply charming period townhouse which is spacious and a lovely family home! Located in the city centre but set back and elevated away from street level, The Parade was built in the late Georgian / early Victorian era with this property thought to be approximately 170 years old or thereabouts. The property has been maintained and updated over time however there is a great deal of scope to further update and develop the property if desired. The front of the property is oriented perfectly for afternoon and evening sun and there's a sunny terrace and garden. The impressive front door opens into an L shaped hallway. The living room has a very high corniced ceiling, feature open fireplace and tall sash windows with patterned glass at the edges and there is secondary glazing fitted. A built-in cupboard in the corner of the living room makes use of some of the space under the stairs. There are two further under stairs cupboards in the inner hallway. The dining room appears to have been two rooms at one time. It would be straightforward to split the room again as there are still two doorways in place (If a ground floor bedroom were required that would be the way to achieve it easily). The kitchen has been refitted in the past with modern shaker style cream base and wall units with laminated work surfaces. The Bosch single electric oven and gas hob are built-in and there is space for the dishwasher and washing machine. A handy utility room is found just off the kitchen and it has a WC and wash basin fitted. Between the kitchen and dining room the back door has a small hallway entrance and access to the parking at the rear of the house. From the inner hallway a turning stairway with beautifully curved hardwood bannister rises to the first floor where the landing is flooded with natural light from an ingenious light well above. There a three generous double bedrooms and a very large bathroom with separate bath and shower enclosure on this level. A narrow door leads to a fairly narrow turning stairway up to the converted attic rooms where the space is surprisingly large and the potential possibilities are obvious! This floor is currently used as study bedroom with shower room.
Located close to the Truro River between the city and Boscawen Park, Truro City centre is a level walk away. Truro has a fantastic array of shops, bars and restaurants as well as being home to The Hall For Cornwall (which is currently being transformed into a state of the art theatre), The Royal Cornwall Museum and the splendid Neo-Gothic Truro Cathedral. Boscawen Park is beautifully maintained and planted with spectacular flower beds and large expanses of open space. There are sports facilities with tennis courts, table tennis tables, children's play equipment and sports pitches as well as a choice of cafés. From Boscawen Park the riverside walk goes to Malpas via Sunny Corner where The Heron Inn is a waterside pub with a super view(or further to St Clements and Tresillian). Just over the road from The Parade, The Old Bakery provides a cultural hub with artists studios, exhibitions and various classes on offer as well as many performances and concerts etc. There is a choice of local primary and secondary schools at this end of the city including Truro School which is a short walk away.
Before the current owner bought property the attic was converted into a quirky and quite unique suite with a large bedroom, hallway and shower room making a suite. The stairs to the attic are narrow and there is a lovely feature created by the light well which not only brings daylight to the landing below but also allows more natural light into the attic bedroom and shower room via opening internal windows which give the impression of looking out into a mediterranean courtyard! (It is thought to be unlikely that the conversion is compliant with modern building regulations). The attic has a lot more potential to exploit and further develop subject to any necessary planning requirements and listed building consent needed. It is worth noting that the neighbouring properties on either side have added dormer windows to their attics at the front.
