Property Description

**SOLD WITH NO CHAIN** - A DETACHED COUNTRY HOUSE SITUATED ON THE VERY EDGE OF TRURO Set in fabulous mature gardens and grounds is this wonderful period property with a detached garage/barn (potential for conversion).

GENERAL COMMENTS AND REMARKS

There are very few properties within a two mile radius of Truro city centre with mature grounds, privacy and surrounded by glorious countryside. This individual period property has all these benefits and more. Located in a quiet and picturesque valley setting, Penhaldarva House enjoys fabulous views over its large, mature and private gardens as well as the countryside beyond. The house has a conventional layout over two floors although it offers versatile accommodation and space for a dependant relative. There is also potential for an extra income as the barn/garage has the potential to be converted to a holiday let or annexe. The property is also offered for sale with no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

In many respects the front elevation of Penhaldarva House is the epitome of a period double fronted Cornish Farmhouse. Behind the frontage it is evident that the property has been extended several times since its original form and yet internally it has all the inherent charm of an ancient traditional building. The modern features combine the best of old and new and the whole property exudes enormous character. The accommodation comprises a splendid high ceiling entrance hall together with shower room and utility with a ground floor bedroom/study which could offer a self contained space for dependent relative if required. The sitting room has two spaces, a formal sitting area with feature fireplace and a space which is currently used for music which opens to the conservatory. There is a snug/office and the farmhouse style kitchen and breakfast room with Aga. To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite and a large family bathroom.

LOCATION

It is hard to believe that Penhaldarva House is within two miles of Truro city centre. It is a very quiet picturesque setting accessed by a pretty country lane with several fords and a lovely area in which to walk and enjoy the countryside. Although enjoying a rural situation the property is situated only a mile from Treliske Hospital, 1 mile from Truro College and the same to Richard Lander School. The hamlets of Newmill and Boscolla are part of the parish of Kenwyn and are within a mile of the built-up environs of Truro. However the setting is completely rural and undisturbed and perfect for those wanting a quiet country retreat but with easy access to the city and its amenities.

TRURO

The city of Truro is the main commercial and administrative centre of the county and here there is an excellent range of shopping facilities with many of the national multiples including a flagship Marks and Spencer store, Waitrose, the historic Cathedral and several private and state schools. The Hall For Cornwall offers a varied programme of entertainment and there are eighteen hole golf courses at Truro, Falmouth, Killiow Estate and St. Austell. The nearby creeks of St. Clements and Malpas offer numerous delightful walks and sailing opportunities are available at Mylor and Falmouth.
