Potential annexe


A superb family home with potential annexe which has been comprehensively remodelled by the current owners.

A beautiful 4-bedroom purpose built house with excellent energy rating credentials. Beautifully finished and built to a very high specification, this property is a superb family home and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Approaching the property via a high quality resin driveway with parking for five vehicles, a gated archway with internal storage rooms separates the main house from the driveway giving a feeling of grandeur and privacy.

A part glazed front door leads into a wide hallway with oak effect flooring and doors off to the downstairs cloakroom and a handy utility room with space for a washing machine and drier. Double doors lead into the expansive, light, and airy open plan living/dining room which in turn, leads on to the impressive kitchen. A large fireplace is a superb focal point in the living room with a NK woodburning stove. This room also benefits from a modern style entertainment storage system and two sets of French doors leading out onto the South facing rear garden – a perfect sun trap and ideal for al fresco dining.

The recently fitted kitchen offers custom built cabinetry with integrated Neff appliances including Dishwasher, Double Oven, Hob and Flush Fit Ceiling Hood as well as an integrated Hotpoint fridge and Hisence freezer. The energy efficient, instant boiling water Quooker tap adds to the feeling of luxury within this space.

Double glass doors lead seamlessly from the kitchen into the games room and on to the ground floor double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This versatile area would make a great space for a self-contained annexe providing an option for multi-generational living.

From the main hallway, stairs lead up to a separate, good sized office space, ideal if working from home. A short set of stairs lead to the first floor where the master suite with ensuite bathroom and dressing room can be found along with a further double bedroom and family bathroom.

On the second floor there is a spacious fourth bedroom which benefits from two Velux windows allowing light to flood into this space.

To the rear of the property is a private, walled garden mostly laid to lawn with a patio area to make the most of the evening sunshine.

The property benefits from HEP20 underfloor heating throughout with twelve 4.8kw solar panels and 11.7kw battery storage which contributes to the property's impressive A rated Energy performance Certificate (EPC).


The property occupies an enviable position being within a highly sought after village, with its own general store/post office, within easy reach of Truro. Kea Community Primary School is within walking distance.

The name derives from Cornish 'Plain an Gwarry', meaning Playing Place, an open-air performance area used historically for entertainment and instruction.

The location is very convenient for accessing Trelissick Garden and the King Harry Ferry, to the Roseland Peninsula. The cathedral city of Truro is around two miles distant and offers a first-class range of shopping facilities, public and private sector schooling and a main line railway station. The superb sailing waters of the Fal Estuary are also very accessible being around two miles away as is the slipway at Loe Beach.


Mains electricity, water, and drainage. The property has HEP20 underfloor heating, 4.8kw solar panels and 11.7kw battery storage. There is a woodburner installed in the Living Room.
