Luxury Apt, citycentre, roof-garden view Cathedral

Ad ref# 15535688

We are delighted to offer this stunning two bed apartment in our brand new city centre development.
Situated on the prestigious Lemon Street, this apartment has been tastefully decorated to celebrate Truro's own Roger Taylor.

Lemon Street was once described by poet John Betjeman as ‘the finest Georgian street this side of Bath’. The Grade II listed townhouse behind the beautiful warm stone façade at No. 79 was built around 1809. It has played many different roles since starting life as a smart private residence, but was in a sorry state as a block of soulless, empty offices when new life was breathed into it over 200 years later. Now, this beautiful building proudly houses an eclectic bunch of boutique ‘home-from-home’ apartments nestled right in the heart of the city, each reflecting a different aspect of its history.

The Taylor Suite can be found right at the top of this beautiful townhouse, our two-bedroomed apartment pays subtle homage to Truro local and famous Queen drummer, Roger Taylor. Alongside legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, the band were at the height of their fame in the 1970’s and early 80’s.

Luckily for all of us, some of the most recognised hallmarks of interior styles from this era include yellow and green tones, natural and rustic materials, plush velvets, macrame and lots of plants and greenery. Fear not, our plan is not to subject you to orange stripes and garish floral armchairs, but rather to envelop you in a comforting cocoon of nature (together with a playful sprinkle of music and Queen references, naturally…)

Eclectic, fun, playful, relaxing, rustic, kooky; The Taylor Suite is a unique and restful retreat that we think you’ll love.

This home-from-home makes extensive use of a natural colour palette and natural materials throughout; pine floors and oak worktops in the kitchen, dining and living space, wood-effect tiles in the bathrooms, macrame plant hangers, bamboo lights, rattan chairs, a jute pouffe, the list goes on.

To top all this off (actually quite literally!), a set of winding stairs takes you up to your very own secret rooftop terrace. This hidden space comes complete with a walk-on roof lantern (guaranteed to be a hit with the kids) above your kitchen! The roof garden features two armchairs, perfect for enjoying a chat and a tipple in comfort, plus a dining table and benches to enjoy al-fresco dining. The rooftop views over the cathedral are breath-taking.

Down below, the comfortable apartment accommodates 5-6 guests over two bedrooms.
The main bedroom sits at the front of the building and faces the magnificent architecture of Lemon Street, with blinds over a large Georgian window and a comfortable king-size bed.

The bathroom can be used as an en-suite or can be shared with any guests using the small double sofa bed in the lounge.

The second bedroom is to the rear of the apartment and is lit by an impressive roof window. It also offers a king-size bed and dressing table and boasts its own en-suite bathroom.

The oak and glass dining table in the communal area seats four comfortably, though two further wall-hung folding chairs can be brought into play to accommodate a fifth or sixth guest. The kitchen is sleek and modern, with a roof light bringing extra light streaming into the space.

The Taylor Suite offers a quirky and fun city retreat suitable for any professional working in the vicinity. The apartment is an 8 minute drive (20 mins by bus) from the The Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske.
