Detached Character Home In The Country With Large Gardens Only 2 Miles From Truro City Centre
Willow Cottage truly offers the best of both worlds: you can enjoy a charming rural atmosphere and yet you are less than two miles from Truro City Centre. The property is in an elevated position, with spectacular views across miles of rolling countryside from the front and directly adjoining open farmland to the rear, and you are surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds that extend to just over half an acre.
If you don't want to go into the city, it is just half a mile to the nearest village stores and Post Office. And if neither city nor country will do, you are just seven and a half miles (approximately 13 minutes drive) from the golden sands of Perranporth.
The cottage itself offers character accommodation with thick walls and traditional beamed ceilings in the main living rooms and a beautiful stone fireplace that forms almost the whole wall of the living room, perfect for cosy winter evenings.
There are three good-sized double first floor bedrooms, and the option to use a spacious ground floor room with its own access and en-suite bathroom as an additional double bedroom, making it ideal for anyone seeking their own space and independence within the property, such as a teenager or those with special mobility requirements.
Willow Cottage faces due east and the views from the front facing windows especially on the first floor are truly exceptional, reaching as far as the China Clay hills in the distance and looking across St Clement Woods at nearby Idless and miles of rolling agricultural land.
The gardens are a delight, extending to both the north, south and to the rear of the house. The owners have spent over two decades crafting these beautiful spaces, which are laid out almost as park land across several lawns, with a wide variety of shrubs and trees, including apple and plum trees, and flowers blooming throughout the year - the daffodil and bluebell displays in spring are particularly lovely. The gardens are ideal for entertaining, having a happy history of family weddings and fetes, and if you wish to relax or dine closer to the house then the patio area at the rear of the house is a perfect and peaceful sun-trap.
The gardens and patio back directly onto open farmland and there is ample parking by way of a gated driveway and garage as well as a gravel area next to the drive.
The property benefits from LPG central heating and double glazing.
