The property has twelve en-suite bedrooms (seven on the first floor and three on the second floor; the other two bedrooms are in the annexe), as well as three bedrooms comprising the owners’ accommodation which has been substantially refurbished to include wood floors and a state-of-the-art bathroom plus dining room and bathroom.

The grounds extend to over two-and-a-half-acres and include attractive sweeping lawned areas with various mature shrubs, trees and plants.

This property is a business with growth potential, particularly with the option to develop a restaurant serving supper in the evening, but the house could equally be converted back to a gorgeous private family residence.

Boscean is situated just a mile from the sea on the Cornish heritage coast, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in west Cornwall. The town of St Just, known as Britain’s most westerly town, is only a short distance away. The dramatic scenery of Cape Cornwall lies to the west of the house.

The guide price is £895,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01962 850 333 or visit
