About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Prestige Homes

Bosvenna House is arguably one of Bodmins more prestigious homes located just on the outskirts of the town centre, situated in an elevated position just off Priory Road.

This fine and impressive Edwardian Manor House has been significantly updated and improved by the current owners to an exemplary standard throughout

On first impressions, the property provides an outstanding entrance through large timber doors into a double height entrance hall with galleried landing above and large impressive staircase. This entrance area is further complemented by parquet flooring throughout and panelling to the walls, being over hung by a large beautiful crystal chandelier, all of which provides a wealth of character and charm. From here doors lead off to the majority of the ground floor living accommodation.

The impressive drawing room, measuring some 35 ft. in length, provides a wonderful family room flooded with ample natural light through large windows and giving a great sense of space due to the high ceilings. From here doors lead to the recently constructed conservatory with internal soil bed, or into the ground floor study in the other direction. In the centre of the drawing room is an impressive open fireplace with marble surround.

The separate dining room is located to the rear of the property and is currently being used to accommodate a dependent family member. This impressive room features a central fireplace and large bay window again flooding the room with plenty of natural light.

The kitchen / breakfast area comprises of a comprehensive range of bespoke base and wall mounted units with central island unit together with a 5 drawer Aga with warming plate. Located across from the kitchen are the utility room, cloakroom w/c and ground floor wet room.

At first floor level there are 6 bedrooms with the master providing spacious en suite facilities. There is also a large family bathroom at this level and additional cloakroom w/c servicing the remaining 5 bedrooms. There is also an option to create a self contained annexe on this floor as one wing of the first floor leads to 3 bedrooms which could be converted into a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.

Externally, the property is approached via a shared driveway which leads to a few properties set well behind Bosvenna House. There is a generous driveway parking area which leads to the detached double car port with attached garage. All of this area is exclusive and private to Bosvenna House.

The gardens and grounds extend to just over three quarters of an acre and are mainly laid to lawn. The gardens provide a generous, spacious and relatively flat area for such things as alfresco dining or simply to allow children to run around and play in.

  • History
    The writer can remember the days of Bosvenna being a well known hotel for many years, run by a prominent local family and after that became The Royal British Legion Club. A few years ago our clients bought the property and entered into a programme of total refurbishment to a high standard and as a magnificent family home, as it is found today.
  • . 1
    The importance of the property is very much reflected in its name which is the Cornish language name for Bodmin. The origins of the house are Edwardian and from its days as a hotel, fond memories are held by many local people of the magnificent panelled principal hall with its gallery above and illuminated by large sky lighting. The area is further illuminated by a fine large chandelier acquired from a nearby country house known as Ethy House at Lerryn. Shortly after acquiring the property our clients constructed a superb conservatory located off the Drawing room which provides a wonderful area to sit and enjoy the pleasant views across the gardens. Prior to our clients purchase the property benefitted from the addition of a large open garage and car port block to the rear court. Despite its size the standard of refurbishment means that this six bedroom family residence is relatively easy to maintain.
