This delightful residence is situated within a small hamlet of properties known as 'Bosilliac Orchard', located approximately one mile outside of Mawnan Smith.

The village has a thriving community which is well served by a range of local facilities.

Believed to date back to the mid 1920's (clear mundic block test available for inspection), Croft Wilkie was originally an estate workers cottage for the nearby country estate.

The current vendors have greatly extended and vastly improved the property over recent years turning it into a superb family home which is presented to an impeccable standard with a theme of light and neutral décor throughout.

There are the added advantages of oil fired central heating as well as double-glazing and the property stands in beautifully landscaped gardens, predominantly to the front enjoying a sunny southerly aspect.
