AN INDIVIDUAL ARCHITECT DESIGNED RESIDENCE OFFERING FAMILY ACCOMMODATION WITH A DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE AND ANNEXE ABOVE THE PROPERTY The property was conceived, designed and built by our client, a prominent and award-winning architect, creating a unique family home in one of Truro's most favoured locations. The design, on the ground floor, incorporates exposed brick elevations under a large pitched and tiled roof with double-glazed paneling creating a vaulted ceiling over the family/breakfast room. The front door opens into a reception hall, featuring a stone effect tiled floor, where doors lead off to a sitting room, the family/breakfast room and to the magnificent double height garden room formerly linked via a bridge to the Studio/Annex above the garage. The garden room is a major feature of the house, illuminated with a fully glazed entire side of the pitched roof. It has the feel of an orangery with a Mediterranean influence. The main reception rooms are very well proportioned. The sitting room has a brick fireplace with glazed double doors leading to the garden room and doors off to the dining room which in turn opens out to the garden. The kitchen, which seamlessly merges into the beautifully illuminated family/breakfast area, is fully fitted with granite worktops and equipped with an Electrolux fan oven and gas hob as well as a concealed fridge. The whole has a wonderfully free flowing charm with all rooms easily accessed from each other. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. A wood and glass staircase leads from the family/breakfast room to a galleried landing from which doors lead off to the bedrooms. There is a principal suite with a recently replaced shower room and garden views, next door a guest room and two further bedrooms with built-in high-level children's cabin beds. This floor is completed by a family bathroom which has also been recently refurbished with white tiling and excellent quality fittings. Steps lead up to an attic room, a space ideal for a children's den or study.
