Property description

A beautifully presented three bedroom semi-detached converted former school house with enclosed level garden, off street parking for two vehicles and a modern single garage.

Why You'll Like It
The original school house is believed to date from 1876 and was converted into a home around 1984. The property retains the elegance and character of the former school house including exposed timber flooring, gorgeous mellow stone exterior and painted beams. There is even a blackboard which is thought to be original! The house is presented in lovely decorative order and the current owners have made numerous improvements including refitting the kitchen and the bathroom. Inside there's a spacious entrance hallway, the living room has the real fire and French doors with storm porch to the garden. There is electric heating, an open fire and UPVC double glazing. There's a large kitchen / dining room which has sanded timber floorboards and the kitchen has been refitted with a stylish range of shaker style base and wall units. The dishwasher is integrated and there is a built under Bosch double electric oven with Bosch ceramic hob and stainless style chimney style extractor over. There is space for a fridge freezer and washing machine also and there's a large storage cupboard which utilizes the space under the stairs. In the kitchen / dining room there is a potbelly wood burning stove mounted on a slate hearth. The stove is not used and the chimney is capped off however the owners believe that it would be fairly straightforward to have the stove returned to working order. Heading upstairs there's a light and bright landing with Velux style window and bedroom one is a large double with lovely painted beams and attractive windows. Bedroom two is also a generous dual aspect double and there's a third bedroom too. The bathroom has been refitted with a lovely white bath suite having a thermostatic mixer shower over the bath and glass screen. Outside there is a charming enclosed rear garden with a good degree of privacy. The parking area comfortably takes two vehicles and there is a single garage in a block next to the property. The garage has power to it and a pitched roof offering potential storage space.

Where It Is
The property is found on a country lane just along from the village primary school. St Erme is a thriving village about 4 miles from Truro. In the village there are useful amenities including a shop, Post Office, Pub and cricket club. Transport links are excellent with regular buses and access to the main A30 via Carland Cross. Truro is within 5 miles where you'll find the cathedral, fabulous independent retailers, coffee shops, restaurants and national stores such as Marks and Spencer and Waitrose, The White Company and Waterstones. The Plaza cinema has 5 screens and the Hall For Cornwall theatre has a packed schedule of live arts and performance. Senior schools and college are found in Truro and a regular bus service provides access. St Erme is essentially a rural and historic farming village. The north Cornish coast is a short drive and the south coast for sailing and the creeks is close by too.

Agent's Note
We are told by the property owners that the "Fatso" wood burning stove located in the kitchen / dining room is not currently in use as the chimney has been capped. They believe that it would be possible to have it returned to useable condition by having the chimney capping removed and any associated works carried out.
