Beautifully presented period house retaining a wealth of original features, in one of Truro's finest and most sought after locations.


The Avenue is a unique place to live - So close to town, so quiet, plenty of parking, big houses and a real community feel. Rothbury is a beautiful house and home which retains wonderful character and original features but has also been lovingly restored and improved over several years to a very high standard. Everybody who visits is 'wowed' by the south facing garden and even more 'wowed' when they step inside. You 'feel' Rothbury as much, if not more than just 'seeing' it. Rothbury is a joy to live in. What more can we say?


Rothbury is a breath-taking example of a beautiful period property, perfectly combining original character features and a modern contemporary finish to provide a grand home. The property occupies a commanding position on a private road within walking distance of the city centre.

The quality of the accommodation is clear the moment you walk into the entrance porch, with the hallway also featuring original mosaic tiling, ceiling coving and picture rail. The original staircase is a prominent feature to the hall also providing access to the upper floors. From the hallway doors open to the living room, dining room and kitchen.

The living room is flooded with natural light from the feature arched window bay, fitted with Upvc double glazed sash windows & shutters. The centre focal point of the room is a log burner and slate hearth, perfectly accompanying the oak flooring, decorative ceiling coving and picture rail. From the living room, double folding doors open to the dining room. Rear aspect Upvc double glazed doors afford access to the rear garden. The oak flooring continues from the living room, accompanied with high skirting. A door from the dining room leads back to the hallway, providing access to the kitchen, which is a truly beautiful & spacious room. The contemporary “Rozen” kitchen comprises double Belfast sink with drainer and central tap, white granite work tops, integral wine rack and a feature range cooker. Other noteworthy features include the Orangery style glass roof, slate flooring with under floor heating. To the rear of the kitchen is a door leading to a utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a wash hand basin and a close coupled WC. Double doors open to the rear garden.

Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor. The first-floor hallway provides access to two bedrooms, with the master to the front aspect affording views over Truro and complimented with built in wardrobes. The second bedroom to the rear aspect is a good spacious room with space for free standing wardrobes. The hallway continues to a beautiful modern “Laufen” shower room, with a large shower cubicle complete with rainforest shower head, integral WC and wall mounted basin. A large bathroom with a free-standing cast-iron bath and “Fired earth” bathroom suite completes the first floor accommodation.

Stairs rise from the first-floor landing to the second floor. Two bedrooms with front aspect Upvc double glazed windows, both affording views to the Estuary & over the City. Our client's alterations also comprise a newly appointed “Laufen” shower room with a basin and WC.

The gardens are a true delight, with the front elevation having undergone extensive landscaping in recent years. Several tiers to patio with planted beds and borders, water feature and garden shed. To the rear elevation is a gated driveway providing off road parking space for two vehicles. Steps lead down to the patio areas, finished with slate flooring and raised flower beds.
