A Fantastic Period Home
Camborne is a popular town with a long and rich heritage. The town presents a mixture of business and shopping facilities with local and national outlets as well as banks, a post office and schooling for all ages in close proximity. The A30 provides ease of access to local towns and Truro city whilst Camborne railway station links direct to London Paddington. Nearby Tehidy woods, country park and the North coast provide glorious surroundings and stunning scenery. The stunning beaches along the coast are easily accessible.
This is a glorious opportunity to own one of the towns splendid period homes. This handsome property has been sympathetically refurbished to an exacting standard to now balance period feature’s with contemporary living.
Originally constructed in 1869 there have been but three family owners since, the current owners purchased this home in a state of disrepair in 2009 and after what would be described as a ‘ground up’ renovation have created this sumptuous home.
The attention to detail must be viewed to be fully appreciated, from the original moulded panelled doors, deep skirtings and moulded cornice to the tiled and slate floors. Fireplaces have been retained where possible with marble surrounds complimented by the gas central heating from Victorian style radiators.
The entrance hall is fitting for the period, a tiled floor and sweeping grand staircase rising to the first floor and gives access to the majority of the downstairs rooms.
The kitchen is a great space, a family space, where days are planned around the breakfast table warmed by the superb AGA cooker.
The conservatory is stunning, a generous double glazed room with bi fold doors to bring the outside in and a fishpond where the fish glide between inside and out.
Three further reception rooms offer comfortable, spacious living, utility and a downstairs office tucked away.
First floor there are five generous bedrooms, two ensuite and a four piece family bathroom. The bedrooms offer very different aspects, light and airy rooms with the same high ceilings as running through the property adding to their grandeur.
Set in a generous plot with formal enclosed gardens screened by mature plants and trees, the gardens are a haven to be enjoyed.
Ample parking for numerous vehicles lead to the quadruple garage where there is annex potential if so desired.
A truly impressive home which offers a rare opportunity for buyers. Viewing is strictly by appointment only and comes highly recommended. In 25 years of selling homes, this is one of my favourites, a stunning property.
