Offering exceptional value: a detached, individual house, built approximately 30 years ago and to be sold for only the second time since construction, providing extensive, extremely well proportioned and highly versatile 4/5 bedroom accommodation, fully double glazed and gas centrally heated, situated off popular Hurland Road and within an approximate 15 minute walk of the city centre, within good sized and attractively landscaped surrounding gardens, and with ample private parking in addition to a large double garage/workshop.


Constructed, we understand, in the 1980's and to be sold for only the second time since built, 'Moonraker' is a fine, detached, individual house, situated at the foot of a short, private road, leading to just three other properties, off popular Hurland Road, an approximate fifteen minute walk from Truro city centre.

Situated 'above' Morlaix Avenue and with open, far-reaching views over neighbouring countryside and towards St Clements and Boscawen Park, 'Moonraker' provides particularly well proportioned accommodation, benefiting from gas fired central heating and double glazing throughout, with the rooms briefly comprising: a most impressive galleried reception hall, immense family sized kitchen/breakfast room with log-burner, lounge, interconnecting dining room, large main conservatory, and spacious utility room which leads to a large rear porch/second conservatory, cloakroom and to the attached double garage, over which there is a large store.

A ground floor inner hall leads to three double bedrooms and to a large family bathroom with separate shower cubicle with, upstairs, a palatial master bedroom suite with double aspect bedroom, second bath/shower room, and interconnecting dressing room, also ideal for use as a nursery, study or fifth bedroom etc.

Ample additional parking for several vehicles, including boats and caravans etc, is provided on an extensive forecourt, from which a short pathway and attractively laid gardens lead to a broad front loggia and the entrance to the accommodation. The surrounding gardens are well enclosed to all sides by Cornish stone and mature hedging; there are paved terraces with access from both conservatories, with the main garden area to the 'upper' side of the house, where there is a large area of lawn, bordered by flowering shrubs, and like most parts of the garden, enjoying a high degree of sunshine.


Meadow Lane is situated off Hurland Road, along which a pleasant fifteen/twenty minute walk leads along Northfield Drive and Park View to Falmouth Road, Lemon Street and the city centre. Consequently, Truro's unrivalled range of shops, schools and commercial facilities are all close at hand, together with a multi-screen cinema, Hall for Cornwall and numerous restaurants, etc. Truro High School is just a few moments away on Falmouth Road; regular bus services lead to Truro College on the western outskirts of the city, close to which is County Hall and Cornwall's main hospital at Treliske.
