THE LOCATION Most of us will not have experienced Bosvarren; discreetly accessed off the Falmouth to Constantine Road through granite posts and along a tree-lined drive to a small handful of 16th and 17th century homes in the Cornish countryside.
This enchanting farm hamlet is part of Bosvathick, a traditional Country Estate, still privately owned by the family who built it in 1760 and reside in the main house today.
The site at Bosvarren, its field names and features of the farm go back eight hundred years although the farm was rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries. Bosvarren's setting is idyllic but also accessible. It is about a mile from the Helford River and close to the harbour, town and beaches of the old sea port of Falmouth. Nearby Constantine village has a lovely community and good local facilities including a Primary School, shops, church and pubs including the well-known Trengilly Wartha Inn. Helston market town is 5 miles away whilst Truro Cathedral City is about 14 miles. 

THE PROPERTY Higher Bosvarren Farmhouse has an originality and honesty that is so refreshing to see. It's built of granite with 2' thick walls and there are two enormous fireplaces in the sitting and dining rooms, one with a bread oven and both with wood burning stoves. Upstairs is the bathroom and three double bedrooms one of which is large with high ceilings.
Although semi-detached to Little Bosvarren, you would not know it, whether inside or outside in its front garden.

The house is pleasing, with an adjacent barn, a cobbled terrace and an enclosed and private south facing walled garden in front, together with an addition and lovely garden to the side where there is parking space for several cars.
Although perfectly 'liveable' the house requires restoration and perhaps reconfiguration, utilising the considerable opportunities that the adjacent barn might provide, subject to any necessary consents.
As the owners sole agents we are delighted to be selling what is an outstandingly unusual and exceptional opportunity.
