Why You'll Like It
To be sold for the first time since it was built in 2015 and occupying an exceptional waterside plot with uninterrupted views towards the Tregothnan Estate, Watersmeet is a fantastic four double en-suite bedroom detached family house with water frontage (including the foreshore extending out approximately 12-15ft from the quay), landscaped garden and double garage. The property was constructed to exacting standards for the owners as their own private residence and is now being sold with no onward chain as they have recently constructed a new home to downsize to. Set back from the street in the heart of this popular village close to Truro, the property is conveniently located having bus stops literally outside the gates. There's a gated block paved driveway with landscaped front garden which has two mature palm trees planted. The double garage is to the side of the property and has an electric roller shutter door and internal access to the utility room. Stepping inside the house from the front door you are welcomed by a spacious entrance hallway with a grand turning stairway which has a double height frosted window allowing natural light to flood in. There's a cloakroom / WC with modern white suite comprising fitted basin and WC. Hard flooring in a pale oak style extends throughout both floors and there is underfloor heating with zoned controls. The internal doors are all quality oak style and there are LED flush downlights to many ceilings. One of the four en-suite bedrooms is accessed from the hallway and is located at the front of the property. The en-suite bathroom has a bath with shower over (note the bath panel has been temporarily removed to accommodate mobility equipment) and white back to the wall WC and wall hung basin. The utility room is also accessed from the hallway and has a tall freezer integrated, space for washing machine and tumble dryer and a stainless single bowl sink. There is an internal access door to the double garage where there are large built-in cupboards housing the heating and hot water equipment (the heating is via a ground source heat pump) and the inverter for the photovoltaic solar panels (which are owned) is also located here. There is attic access from the garage into a storage loft above the garage.
A door at the end of the hallway opens into the large, open plan kitchen / living / dining room where there are two sets of French doors opening out onto a simply delightful sundeck with super views. The kitchen has been fitted with a modern range of base and wall units and has a feature island with breakfast bar. The Siemens induction hob is located in the island set in the quartz style work surface and having a stylish island extractor above. There is a Siemens multi function single oven and Siemens microwave combination oven with warming drawer located in tall midi tower units with a built-in fridge and there is also an integrated 60cm dishwasher next to the 1.5 bowl undermounted sink. A handy conservatory is located just off the kitchen making another useful space which would work equally well for sitting, dining or as a play room or even as a work from home space (although you may be tempted to stare at the view all day!) Heading up the bespoke turning stairway you arrive at a large landing which has plenty of space for furniture and would also make a good study / work from home space if wanted. There are three large double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. Bedrooms one and two both have built-in wardrobes and the en-suite shower room in the master bedroom is especially spacious having side by side basins with LED illuminated mirrors. French doors from bedrooms one and two open to a breath-taking full width balcony with glass balustrade and incredible river and country views. Bedroom three is another en-suite double bedroom located at the front of the property. In addition to the bedrooms there is an attic / hobby room which is accessed via a ship's ladder / paddle stairs and has a window looking out to the river and plenty of space. A truly stunning property in a delightful yet convenient location!
Where It Is
Tresillian is a waterside village just a couple of miles from the Waitrose end of Truro. The village is served by regular buses and has a petrol station with convenience shop, a highly recommended Cornish pasty bakery, children's day nursery and church etc. At the end of the village there is a playing field with play equipment, outdoor exercise equipment and a football pitch and the village hall is also located nearby. The entrance to Lord Falmouth's Tregothnan Estate is next to the bridge and the tidal river Fal winds along next to the village heading down towards Malpas where The Heron Inn provides a warm welcome and delicious food. You can walk along the riverside to St Clement and then on to Malpas. The riverside walk is a bird watchers paradise with heron, white egrets, shell duck, curlews, oyster catchers and the occasional kingfisher all to be sighted in the area. From Malpas you can continue on the relatively level riverside walk all the way to Boscawen Park and eventually into Truro, a route popular with ramblers and runners. The beautiful beaches of The Roseland Peninsula are located a relatively short drive from hear also where you can enjoy a treat from The Hidden Hut or fresh locally caught shellfish from Curgurrell Farm Shop and vast unspoilt sandy beaches with rugged headlands.
