Situated just one mile from the centre of Truro within Kenwyn, arguably the city’s leafiest and most desirable area, Trewinnard Court was originally built in 1911 as Truro Cathedral School and Boarding House. Converted into high quality homes in 1999, the development is considered to be one of Truro’s finest and most historically important buildings. Number 4 forms the central section and is defined by the original bell tower.
Trewinnard Court is particularly well situated within this highly regarded area of Truro, within walking distance of the historic Kenwyn church and the city centre. Within a short walk is a designated quiet lane that leads to the rural hamlet of Idless where there are wonderful woodland walks and cycle trails along with an open-air café.
Truro boasts a wide and varied mix of national and boutique retailers found within the pretty cobbled streets radiating out from Truro’s impressive and prominent cathedral. Social entertainment is served via an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars along with cinema, art galleries and the newly revamped Hall For Cornwall which is now a national-class venue.
Sports enthusiasts are particularly well-catered for with a sports centre with swimming pool, two tennis clubs, squash club, rugby, football and cricket clubs within the city. Watersports are readily accessible with the north coast surfing beaches and highly regarded sailing waters of the Carrick Roads on the south coast, both within a short drive.
