The cottage is located in a popular retirement complex to the east of Truro and within walking distance to the city centre. The complex offers many amenities which include a residents lounge and well maintained communal garden. The property benefits from night storage heating and double glazing throughout and is situated in an ideal part of the complex to benefit from views over the communal garden.
