Let’s move to Truro, Cornwall: it has moments of magnificence!

A piece in the ‘Guardian’ attracted our attention.

People lust after the Cornish coast, forgetting there are perfectly smashing spots like Truro a short drive from sandy coves
Where to buy Oh me oh my, some lovely homes. Great streets of sturdy stone terraces, delightful late Regency townhouses and Victorian villas. Top billing, though, goes to the gorgeous stone Georgians on Lemon Street, which morphs into Regency and Victorian villas on Falmouth Road. Look north, too, between Carvoza Road and Mitchell Hill, and Tregolls Road, and west on and off Chapel Hill. Large detacheds and townhouses, £450,000-£1m. Detacheds and smaller townhouses, £250,000-£450,000. Semis, £170,000-£400,000. Terraces and cottages, £150,000-£425,000. Flats, £450,000. Rentals: a one-bedroom flat, £575-£700pcm; a three-bedroom house, £725-£1,000pcm.

If you have ever wondered why Cornish house prices are so high, why properties old and new get snapped up, why there is a frenzy of house building, look no further!

As well as estate agents and the tourist sector, we have ‘quality’ papers extolling the virtues of living in Cornwall.

Never mind we are busy building new houses to keep up and never mind the environmental or cultural costs!
