A character semi-detached 4 bedroom former school house in a rural hamlet location relatively close to Truro. Large garden with extensive parking.
The original part of this former school house was built circa 1881 and has a great deal of charm and character. The mellow stone front has been replicated in the later extensions (thought to date from the 1980s) which have been built in keeping with the original building. The property works well as a flexible 3 / 4 bedroom house and would suit multi generational living with one of the bedrooms and the shower room being on the ground floor. The ground floor bedroom would also work very well for those working from home and / or a self employed business person as it is at the front of the property and by the cloakroom / WC making it ideal for visitors. This part could if needed be closed off from the main house as there is an alternative front door. Outside to the front the sizeable front garden is mainly landscaped as a very large circulating driveway. There is an area of lawn, a beautifully planted raised central island and a block built/ stone fronted store shed / workshop with wood store attached. There is a great deal of gravel driveway parking and also a concrete hard standing with further tarmac hard standing to the side. Stepping inside the property there is a wide entrance hallway with cloakroom / WC. The ground floor bedroom is immediately to the left of the hallway. Beyond the entrance hallway is a large open plan kitchen / breakfast room with glazed French doors to the rear patio / courtyard garden. The kitchen has a super view across a field and is fitted with a range of base and wall units. There is space for a slot in cooker and the dishwasher is integrated. The breakfast room has an impressive fireplace with oil fired stove (The central heating is also oil fired and there is UPVC double glazing). Moving through the property there is a further reception room which could be used as a dining room and then a large living room. There's an additional snug with exposed stone walls and a cosy wood burner installed. Also on the ground floor is a useful shower room. Upstairs there are three generous bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside to the rear is an enclosed rear courtyard garden with patio which has a view across the neighbouring field. Buyers should note that the property is attached to Chuckles Day Nursery which is a relatively small day nursery for young children.
Baldhu is a historic village / hamlet between the villages of Chacewater, Carnon Downs and Threemilestone. These nearby villages have excellent facillities including convenience shops and doctors etc. Access to the cathedral city of Truro is convenient by car from here and Redruth, Penryn and Falmouth are not too far away. Baldhu itself is a small rural hamlet with a former church (now residential) and the former school house which is now Chuckles Day Nursery. The nearby Bissoe Trail is a cycle route connecting Devoran on the South coast with Portreath on the North coast and is very popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.
The property is attached to Chuckles Day Nursery. The owners are in the process of erecting fences to clearly define the boundaries between the two properties. There is a cupboard area in the snug which will be walled off and remain part of Chuckles Day Nursery in order to neatly split the two properties. The division of the two properties and associated legal work is in hand. The property will have its own septic tank sewerage system installed.
