The Filter House is an Art Deco gem in Cornwall situated between Truro, St Austell and Newquay in a pretty mostly undeveloped village with plenty of grade 2 listed buildings. It sits down a quiet lane with plenty of parking both on and offsite. It was originally a utility industrial building which filtered water from the onsite lake. Some of the original features remain, including the Crittall windows, but otherwise the property has been sensitively restored and remodelled in tune with the Art Deco years with mostly 1930's furnishings and light fittings that make you feel as if you have stepped into an Agatha Christie mystery. The three spacious bedrooms are furnished with original walnut wardrobes and dressers and the master bedroom features an original Victorian cast iron bed. The bathroom features a salvaged Ideal standard bathroom suite with half ton cast bath and all authentic fixtures and fitting in tune with the era. The windows display a sunburst pattern which let in an interesting light. The lounge boasts a wonderful 1930's working fireplace which is a great focal point, the music room is kitted with a Deco Eavstaff mini piano and the kitchen is decked out in black and cream with a vintage feel with Bauhaus style black and chrome cantilevered chairs I have various period props including vintage radio, TV, hoover, hair dryer etc. It sits next to a lake as well which is over an acre in size with possible access.
