The Existing Property:
Set in a secluded walled courtyard, this three bedroomed semi-detached house in the heart of the popular village of Tregony features many highly efficient energy-saving measures whilst offering a light and deceptively spacious residence.
On entering this delightful property, you step in to the reception hallway. This features doors to a 'shoe cupboard', downstairs WC, cloakroom, and utility space, as well as the lounge and kitchen. The recently refurbished kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating and integrated appliances including hob, oven and hood, opens in to the open plan lounge/dining room and out to the double glazed conservatory overlooking the rear garden and country views beyond. The open plan lounge/dining room features underfloor heating and a slate hearth with large wood burning stove which contributes to the eco-heating this house offers.
Carpeted stairs ascend to the light-filled, galleried first floor landing which leads to the three bedrooms and family bathroom. The two larger bedrooms overlook the rear garden and out to the rolling countryside whilst the front bedroom features a south-facing aspect, inviting in generous daylight. Bedrooms one and two include large built-in wardrobes and cupboards and all bedrooms are centrally heated by radiators. The family bathroom features bath with shower, WC and hand basin along with a large towel radiator.
The property is offered fully double glazed and with a unique and innovative heating/hot water system. The current family occupants state their 2015 heating/hot water bill to be around £145 for the entire year. The heating and hot water come from a large thermal store. This is fed with heat from the multifuel stove in the living room and solar thermal panels on the roof, with off-peak electric backup. There is capacity for an air/ground source heat pump and/or conventional oil boiler to be added to supplement the system. The house also features rainwater harvesting which results in discounted water bills.

The front courtyard includes dedicated parking plus guest parking while to the rear, a large 'floating' decking area offers gorgeous views over the rolling countryside and mature family garden which provides areas for sitting out to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun.
Tregony is often referred to as 'the gateway to the Roseland' and is ideally situated for enjoying the countryside, beaches and coast paths of South Cornwall which is renowned for its attractive coastline.

There is a regular bus service to the local city of Truro and the bus stop is very close by.
