When, after almost 200 colourful years as a public house the land was suddenly sold in 1828, the building and its grounds were reborn as a family home, which came to be known as Truro Cottage. Soon after, when local draper Thomas Reynolds adapted and extended the building, to reflect its grander status it was renamed Truro House.Following in the Reynolds footsteps came a succession of families and personalities, and as you wander through the house's remarkable rooms today, the mark left by each can be felt in its unique and characterful interiors.As you step through the Corinthian porch and into the imposing Gothic wood panelled entrance hall, it soon becomes evident that Truro House truly is one-of-a-kind. Perhaps a nod to the heritage of Madame George, the Gallic wife of George Davis, whose family lived in the house for 100 years, Old French influences can beseen throughout.The impressive Drawing Room boasts elegant Ionic scalgliola columns, gleaming gold leaf cornices, an antique fireplace, grisaille panels, secret cupboards and doors, and semi-circular French bay windows opening onto the beautifully landscaped gardens.In the master bedroom, the original grisalle panelling continues and where the original toile de jouy wallpaper once dominated, intricate and original restored detailing now decorate the walls.Elsewhere, handcrafted wood panelling, parquet flooring and carved beams draw your eyes into the warmth of the Normandy dining room. Here a Tudor sash window and Jacobean fireplace pull you in further to admire the numerous carvings, mottos and chilvalric detailing throughout. The style continues upstairs where the Normandybedroom features a hand painted ceiling, antique fireplace and a secret hidden door a further reminder of the houses intriguing journey through the years.A sensitive restoration befitting an extraordinary home Lying forgotten and uninhabited for 20 years, the Comer Homes Group has now taken up the responsibilityof restoring Truro House to its former glory.
