RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A UNIQUE 3 BEDROOM PROPERTY PACKED WITH PERIOD FEATURES SET IN APPROXIMATELY HALF AN ACRE. Boden Veor is a Grade II listed property, with a wealth of character and charm, constructed of Cob with Cornish slate roof over and is semi-detached being formerly part of a traditional Cornish farmstead. The existing dwelling is thought to date back to 1650, although its history runs much deeper as we believe it has been mentioned in the Domesday book. Upon entering, Boden Veor's historic character is immediately apparent. The entrance lobby welcomes you and then leads on into the hallway and from here to the parlour with fireplace, exposed ceiling beams, open floorboards, and a large sash window with views of the walled garden. The generous dining room features an impressive inglenook fireplace with cloam oven, again a sash window and the original rear door opening out to the walled garden. The kitchen has a slate floor, formerly the dairy, with an oil fired Aga and Belfast style sink and a Georgian style window with views over the farmstead towards the mowhay/barns beyond. The wooden stair case, with carpet runner, splits into two as it reaches the first floor. The right hand rise leads to the Principal bedroom with built in wardrobe and 2 windows that look out over the walled garden/courtyard, from this room there is also an interconnecting passage/door that links with bedroom 2. Bedroom 3 features a high ceiling and open floorboards, the window looks out to the rear towards the mowhay/barns. It has a built-in clothes hanging rail. The left hand stair rise leads directly to bedroom 2, and the main bathroom with a roll top bath, shower, toilet, bidet and sink. Boden Veor is located one mile from Manaccan. This well known Cornish village lies on the Lizard peninsula. It has a primary school, a Norman Church. Helford Village and the south bank of the Helford River lies two miles distant. Here is the epitome of the Cornish lifestyle in all its charm. There is a sailing club, the waterside Shipwrights Inn, deep water moorings in the river and in the summer a pedestrian ferry to Helford Passage on the north side of the river. St Keverne 2.9 miles away provides a general store, a butcher, a post office and a Doctor's Surgery. A large proportion of the area surrounding the Helford Estuary is owned by the National Trust or the Bosahan Estate and has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The magnificent Cornish seascapes can be enjoyed using the many coastal paths within easy reach. There are several creeks off the Helford Estuary, none more famous than Frenchman's Creek, the subject of Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name.
