Cornwall is rare in its offering of stunning homes, some peacefully secluded, some with the city on their doorstep, and some enjoying the very best of both.
Promising a tangible sense of peace and tranquillity, within easy reach of both Cornish coasts, and with all the amenities of Cornwall’s cathedral city on the doorstep; currently on the market with Philip Martin, Rothbury is a rare offering indeed.
Beautifully appointed and rich with character and period charm, Rothbury offers spacious accommodation across three floors. The living space comprises a sitting room, dining room, and a gorgeous kitchen/breakfast room, which is flooded with light and boasts stunning, slate flagstone floors with under-floor heating.
The home, which is currently priced at £825,000, extends to approximately 2,087 square feet, with a conventional layout over three storeys. High ceilings give a feeling of light and space, while views over the iconic Truro cathedral nod to the property’s proximity to the conveniences of Cornwall’s capital. And yet, life here feels private – separate from the busy modern world.
Outside you’ll find off-road parking for two cars, alongside a solid oak log store with a natural slate roof. From here, steps lead to a slate patio with beautiful raised flower beds, continuing around the side with access to the dining room. Extensively landscaped, with natural stone paved terraces and a large central terracotta water fountain, the Italian inspired gardens are a sheer delight, exemplifying the character and charm that make this home so special.
