A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A NEWLY BUILT, STATE OF THE ART CONTEMPORARY HOME IN RURAL CORNWALL A beautifully designed, contemporary building utilising state of the art technology throughout. It incorporates a spacious four bedroomed home, a fully self-contained annex and an integral double garage, the whole rendered in white, high thermally rated silicone render and charred larch cladding. The property occupies a magnificent site on the crest of a former meadow which is accessed from a private no-through road on the edge of the charming Cornish village of Stithians within easy reach of Truro and Falmouth. The remainder of the build ensures eco friendly credentials throughout with underfloor heating provided by a Grant Aerona 3 Air Source Heat Pump which operates on both floors. High levels of insulation and German precision Schuco glazing create an ambient living environment, each area being controlled individually by a Heatmiser Smart system. The generous floor area of over 3500 sq. feet is complemented by three-metre-high ceilings ensuring a wonderful sense of spaciousness throughout. The accommodation on the ground floor, accessed from the entrance hall with steps down, is centred around an open plan living area, floored in tuscan marble effect tiles, with panoramic views across the Kennall Valley. The area incorporates a German bespoke Torben Schmid Bauformat kitchen along with both dining and sitting areas and opens onto a glass balustraded balcony via full height black aluminium sliding doors. This floor also accommodates the principal bedroom suite, a very generous area featuring a large bedroom with a spacious walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. A utility room and a cloakroom complete the facilities on this floor. Two further bedrooms sharing a beautifully fitted family bathroom are located on the lower ground floor with the fourth bedroom currently used as a study. Also on this floor is a fully fitted annex with the choice to be independent or integrated within the main residence as required. It has a large sitting room, again a Bauformat kitchen with dining area, a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom. All bathroom fittings throughout are by Villeroy and Boch with Miele providing the kitchen appliances, worktops are in Dekton with Quartz fitted in the annex and finally lighting throughout uses the LED system. THE LOCATION Located in the village of Stithans nine miles from Truro and eight miles from Falmouth. The property can be found on the edge of the village in a very quiet and peaceful location overlooking the Kennall Valley. Stithans has a church established in the twelfth century, a chapel and a junior school, the village also supports a post office, a general store, a garage, a public house and a hotel. One major local event held in July which has been established now for almost a century, is the Stithians Agricultural Show one of the best-known village shows in the West Country. Stithians Reservoir, nearby, provides the facility for many aquatic sports and pastimes. Falmouth is around 8 miles distant with a busy commercial and recreational scene, here there are a wealth of retail shopping opportunities along with a yachting centre able to enjoy the deepest natural harbour in Europe and of course excellent beaches. Golf enthusiasts are well catered for with several excellent clubs in the area and for the yachting and sailing fraternity the opportunities on this part of the Cornish coast are without doubt amongst the finest in the United Kingdom. Many clubs and Marinas have been long established to take advantage of the tidal estuaries and the wonderful day sailing waters. Helford, Falmouth Harbour and Bay, the Carrick Roads and Fal Estuary, creeks at Restronguet, Mylor and the Percuil River are all famous locations easily reached from Stithians. Truro, about 9 miles away also has excellent shopping facilities but also includes fine performances offered by the Hall for Cornwall Theatre, subject of a recent complete restoration. A direct intercity rail service connects Truro to London Paddington (travel time approximately 4½ hours). Newquay with air links to London and other destinations is around twenty miles from Stithians itself. The area is well served with both private and state schools for all ages including Treliske and Polwhele Preparatory Schools, Truro School, Truro High School for Girls and the University of Cornwall Hub based at Tremough near Penryn. OUTSIDE The property, which occupies a large site of approximately a third of an acre is entered via an electrically operated gate system with intercom access if required. There are high boundary walls to the parking area giving a full degree of privacy. The area inside opens onto a tarmacadam courtyard with parking for numerous vehicles plus an integral double garage. A secondary graveled parking area has been provided off the lane for further visitors. The gardens are currently laid to lawn with paths and terraces providing a structured basis with great opportunity for further planting and development
