Full description

Set on the outskirts of the village and to be sold for the first time since construction in 2002, a detached house providing faultlessly presented 5-bedroomed accommodation, together with an integral 1-bedroomed annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or source of letting income etc, within level and easily managed gardens to both front and rear, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of the village and the head of the beautiful Helford River.

The Property - Purchased from new by our clients in 2002 and to be sold for the first time since construction, 'Boslowen' is an attractive, detached house, situated on the outskirts of this sought-after village, at the head of the picturesque, tree-lined Helford River.

Beautifully maintained, updated and presented by our clients, the property provides five bedroom, two bathroom accommodation, benefiting from double glazing and oil fired central heating, together with a superb ground floor annexe, the former integral garage, ideal for a dependent relative or source of letting income etc.

Accessed off an adopted brick-pavia road, through level front gardens which include lawn, rhododendron border and forecourt with off-road parking for two/three vehicles, the main accommodation briefly comprises: a gabled porch, entrance lobby with cloaks cupboard, central hallway with cloakroom/WC off, superb double aspect lounge with polished marble fireplace, and beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room with flush hi-gloss units, polished black granite worksurfaces, windows to both front and rear elevations, and an archway into a rear porch with stable door onto the rear gardens.

Upstairs, a galleried landing leads to five bedrooms, one of which would be ideal as a study or TV room etc, and the 'family' bathroom features a white Heritage suite with bath and separate shower cubicle. The 'master' bedroom (bedroom five) is a quite palatial suite comprising a double aspect bedroom measuring 17'6" x 14', together with a walk-in wardrobe and a private bathroom with four-piece suite and fully ceramic tiled walls.

The annexe was originally the integral garage to the property and, if preferred, could no doubt be converted back. The current arrangement is however ideal for those with a dependent relative or in search of a comfortable family home with additional source of letting income.

To the rear of the property the level gardens are well enclosed by dry stone walling and privet hedging, and include a further area of lawn, selection of camellias and courtesy doors, with exterior lighting, from the accommodation. Two useful garden buildings are ideal for the storage of garden implements, bikes and sailing equipment, etc.

The Location - Kiln Meadows is located on the north-eastern outskirts of the village and prospective purchasers should note planning permission for three further dwellings exists to the south-western side of 'Boslowen'.

The centre of the village, just two hundred metres distant, provides a general store and public house, a short distance from which is the head of the creek and Gweek Boatyard which provides laying-up and repair facilities. The Seal Sanctuary is a year-round attraction, and the village is ideally positioned for the unspoilt countryside surrounding the Helford River, as well as The Lizard peninsula, and nearby town of Helston, just four miles away.
