Full Details

The Property
Chy an Gwel is positioned within the hamlet of Boscolla which is a quiet settlement comprising a selection of exclusive properties, located within the rural environs of Truro. The elevated position affords tremendous views over rolling countryside and the property enjoys privacy from neighbouring dwellings.

The property was built in the early 1970’s, subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition, but this was lifted in September 2023 (PA23/04041), meaning its purchase and occupation is now unrestricted, and the property is therefore considered suitable for mortgage purposes.

The accommodation is well proportioned and offers three double bedrooms, but is now a blank canvas, offering the opportunity to refurbish the property to one’s own style or possibly even for demolition for a replacement dwelling (subject to planning consent).

In all, the property offers a spacious entrance hall with sitting room, dining room, kitchen, three double bedrooms and bathroom with separate wc. There is also a useful lobby/utility area with an additional wc and larder, and at the far end is an attached garage.

Most windows are in PVCu double glazing and there is oil-fired central heating as well as a few night store heaters.

The bungalow is situated in the centre of its site and enjoys level gardens to the front and rear. The principal rooms and the front garden enjoy the best of the views over the valley.

Truro city centre is within just 2 miles and provides an abundance of shopping, schooling, health and leisure amenities and boasts the magnificent Cathedral, whilst elsewhere within the town is the railway and bus stations, and various accesses onto the estuary for leisurely boating down to the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay beyond. Royal Cornwall Treliske Hospital is within 1½ mile and there are a whole host of footpaths in the vicinity including the Coosebean Greenway which leads directly to the city centre.
