On a quiet, level plot within highly desirable Carlidnack Lane, away from passing traffic yet within a few minutes' walk of the village centre, an outstanding individual chalet-style house, providing well appointed, versatile and extraordinarily well proportioned accommodation, extending to 4,350 square feet, including 5-bedroomed accommodation to the ground floor plus an extremely adaptable first floor 2-bedroomed apartment, ideal for a dependent relative etc, all set within beautifully stocked and landscaped surrounding gardens, with ample parking in addition to an attached double garage.
'Bosvethan' offers a delightful interaction of inside-outside space, with many doors leading onto and overlooking a stunning sunny patio terrace and landscaped gardens beyond with masses of well tended and stocked flower beds, palm trees, flowering shrubs and attractive pond.
Having been constructed by the previous owners in 1999 and extended in 2010, the attention to detail throughout the property is evident. Quality materials and extra insulation over the standard levels have been installed and the layout has been designed to suit a broad range of occupants, including those who have dependent relatives, those looking for additional income, or simply purchasers requiring a large versatile family home with reasonable running costs.
Externally, the property has been designed for low maintenance living, with spar rendered elevations to the rear and appealing stone front facade, together with attractive uPVC double glazed windows and doors throughout. Modern oil fired central heating, controlled via a dual burner 'Alpha' independently heats the cooker and hot water/heating; the family room benefiting from under-floor heating, and a wood-burner in the sitting area adds a traditional feel.
In all, an extensive and extremely versatile home, offered for sale with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.
The wrap-around gardens are a particular feature of the property, being completely level, enclosed, private and stocked with a mass of mature flowering shrubs and specimen tree borders. This beautiful secluded setting however, is not isolated, being located on the eastern outskirts of the village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities, including thatched public house, garage, doctors surgery, junior school, general stores/sub-post office, hairdresser, restaurant, church and craft shops, are just a few minutes' walk away.
A nearby valley walk leads to the sandy bathing beach at Maenporth, from where the South West Coast Path provides breathtaking walks along the shoreline of Falmouth Bay. Excellent golf courses are nearby at Budock Vean, Falmouth, Mullion, Killiow and Truro; the internationally renowned sub-tropical gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan are 'on the other side of the village'; the port of Falmouth is approximately six miles distant, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, is an approximate twenty five minute drive away.
