THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, in the late 1970's, 'Morningside' occupies an exceptional setting in the 'heart' of this sought-after waterside community, just four miles south of the cathedral city of Truro, whose retail, commercial, leisure, administrative, health and educational facilities are just an approximate ten minute' drive away.

Remodelled and refurbished over recent years, the property is ideal for family and retirement purchasers alike, whether for permanent or second home occupancy, with the attractively landscaped and well stocked gardens mainly paved for ease of maintenance and to provide, together with the accommodation, beautiful views over the immediately adjacent farmland and village outskirts to the sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and unspoilt shoreline of The Roseland Peninsula beyond.

Features include replacement uPVC double glazing throughout, oil fired central heating supplemented with solar panelling, oak flooring to some reception areas, extensive internal downlighting, brushed steel electrical fittings, mellow stone fireplace with gas fire, white sanitary ware and fitted kitchen with full range of appliances.

A ground floor bedroom with adjacent shower room is ideal for a dependant relative, visiting friends or eventual ground floor living etc; the main bedroom has a balcony from which to enjoy the view, additional parking is provided to the detached double garage, and two useful block-built stores are ideal for those wanting to 'work from home', subject to little further adaptation.

For sale with the benefit of vacant possession with no onward chain.
