Carclew Cottage is conveniently located along a quiet residential terrace in a particularly rare position in central Truro just a short walk to the city centre. Truro is set in a valley amidst beautiful unspoiled countryside at the head of the Truro River, which leads into the Carrick Roads and on into Falmouth Bay. The city is conveniently located for you to be able to enjoy both the North and South coasts with golf, sailing, beaches and other sporting activities all within easy reach. There is an excellent range of national and independent shops, restaurants and bars, a cinema, art galleries and the newly refurbished (due to re-open this year) theatre ‘The Hall for Cornwall’. The property is also well situated for access to public and private schools across all age ranges.
Communication links to the area are excellent with a main line rail service to London Paddington and regular flights from Cornwall Airport to London as well as other domestic and international destinations.
Carlew Cottage is perhaps one of the very first detached dwellings near Lemon Street, Truro. One can easily imagine the city residentially growing around the original cottage. As you enter the gates, you are first welcomed by a beautiful garden proportionate with the property itself. Leading through the front door you will find yourself in the dining room with a ‘snug’ on your right complete with a log burner and a window overlooking the front garden. The kitchen sits down a step at the rear of the property from the dining room and benefits from under-counter cupboards and drawers with a Belfast sink, space for an American Fridge Freezer, and space for a cooker. From the kitchen you can access the rear courtyard from an external door. Just off the kitchen you will find a downstairs bedroom en-suite which benefits from windows to the side and rear of the property making it light and airy. Leading through the kitchen you will find a separate walk-through utility room which houses a cupboard for the washing machine, sink, and external access. From here you will be brought into a large and comfortable living room with access via a secondary stairway to the first floor.
The cottage itself has a very interesting and user-friendly layout. The entire first floor is laid with solid wood flooring creating a truly ‘cosy feel’. The first floor comprises of a principal bedroom with views across the front garden and is of a southerly aspect and therefore very light. You will then step through a Jack-and-Jill bathroom and into your second bedroom. From the second bedroom and into the hallway you will find yourself at the top of the landing with two bedrooms and a family bathroom, all within proximity.
Access to the property is from Carclew Terrace through some gates. From the gate you step straight into the front garden with steps leading the front door of the cottage. At the rear of the property is a courtyard with a raised patio with a path leading to St Aubyn’s Road.
