SITUATION

Boswidden Farm is situated at Penponds, a sought after village to the west of Camborne. This semi-rural village boasts a highly regarded primary school and a place of worship. Camborne, the nearest main business district, provides a wide variety of services and facilities for everyday requirements, and the City of Truro, the administration centre for Cornwall, is approximately 15 miles away with good access via the A30. There is a railway station at Camborne with main line services to London Paddington. The north Cornish coast is easily accessible with the harbour fishing port of Portreath and Godrevy Point and Lighthouse both being about 6 miles distant. The wide sandy beach at Gwithian Towans, forming part of St. Ives Bay, is about 5 miles distant and is popular with families and surfers alike.

The main A30, Cornwall’s arterial trunk road, lies approximately 2 miles to the north, providing easy access west to Hayle, St. Ives, Penzance and the stunning West Penwith Coastline, and east towards Truro, Bodmin and the national motorway network at Exeter.

THE PROPERTY

Boswidden Farm comprises a detached, traditionally constructed house, which was formerly a terrace of three cottages and has been converted into a single dwelling providing spacious family accommodation with many character features inc. beamed ceilings, granite fireplaces and pine doors, with the benefit of oil fired central heating and PVCu double glazing. The accommodation briefly comprises kitchen, two reception rooms, useful utility room, two shower rooms on the ground floor and at first floor level four double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The accommodation lends itself to be re-configured to provide a self-contained annexe if required, subject to planning/building regulations. Planning consent was obtained previously (now lapsed) to provide a first floor extension over the utility room to provide an additional room. The property is approached from the Council maintained road onto a shared gated driveway with permitted rights to park vehicles.

The gardens are principally laid to lawn with a scattering of mature plants, shrubs and semi tropical plants. The lower gardens have paths running through and are relatively level. Located within the garden area is outside toilet with a high flush system, a Garden Store and a Sun Room (4.45m x 2.63m) with dwarf walls, PVCu double glazed windows under a polycarbonate roof with a tiled floor, electric points and views over the lower garden. The upper garden, accessed via steps to the side of the house and the piggery, provides a level lawn area with shrubs and trees and a pedestrian gate leads in to the paddocks.
