13 Jan Georgian townhouse on Truro’s Lemon Street
Clive Pearce Property is pleased to offer for sale an elegant and extensive townhouse with the rare benefits of both a large walled garden and a garage, on one of Truro’s finest historic streets.
The characterful house sits on Lemon Street in Truro’s city centre – widely renowned as one of the most iconic Georgian streets in the county. Thought to have been built circa 1810 and Grade II listed, the house has a pretty stone frontage and a fanlight above the front door along with some lovely period features including high corniced ceilings, sash windows and window shutters, picture rails and timber floors.
Inside is a generous hallway, two large reception rooms with feature fireplaces, a cloakroom/WC and a large kitchen fitted with a range of simple white cabinetry. On the first floor are four bedrooms and the family bathroom along with a separate shower room, both of which are fitted with relatively modern suites. From the landing is a stairway to the attic, which has timber floors and windows to both the rear garden and the over stairs light well.
Outside, directly to the rear of the house is a large patio area made of slate flag stones and a lean-to store housing the central heating boiler, then the long, walled garden with a pathway reaching a greenhouse and the garage/workshop with double wooden doors and a pitched roof.
Along with its outstanding Georgian period architecture, one of the landmarks of Lemon Street is the beautiful Art Deco Plaza Cinema, and there is Lemon Street Market with its eclectic mix of independent shops and a lovely café. There are a number of great restaurants nearby and at the heart of the city centre, the towering neo-gothic cathedral and delightful mix of local and national retailers, restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars are just a short walk away, as is Lemon Quay and Cornwall’s theatre, Hall for Cornwall.
Miranda Pearce said: “This property is a real gem for those seeking a life in the city. Nearby schooling is excellent and the mainline railway station with its direct link to London Paddington is not far away. Just over a mile, on the Truro River is Boscawen Park with its open spaces, children’s play area, tennis courts, football and cricket pitches, exercise equipment, specially created dog exercise area and riverside café. Everything is within easy reach of the house, which has no onward chain so could easily become a wonderful family home in very little time. Similarly, it would provide a professional couple each an office as
well as the space to start a family too!”
