A detached, individual, non-estate bungalow close to the centre of this popular village, set in good-sized gardens to both front and rear, with ample driveway parking in addition to a garage, providing versatile and well-proportioned 4-bedroomed accommodation, including a superb family-sized kitchen/dining/living room, with all front-facing rooms enjoying views over the outskirts of the village to College Reservoir, surrounding countryside and Falmouth Bay beyond.


'Bosparva' is a detached, individual, non-estate bungalow, occupying a convenient position close to the centre of this well-served and extremely popular village, with all front-facing rooms enjoying far-reaching, panoramic views over the outskirts of the village to countryside surrounding College Reservoir, and Falmouth Bay in the distance.

Benefiting from gas fired central heating, double glazing and mellow timber flooring to many rooms, the property has recently been substantially extended to the rear where the owners have created a magnificent, family-sized, open-plan kitchen/dining and day-time living room with bi-folding doors overlooking and opening onto the rear gardens. In addition, there is a double aspect lounge with open fireplace.

Three of the four bedrooms benefit from built-in cupboards, a bathroom with overhead shower could be readily combined with an adjacent separate WC if preferred, and the extensive loft area provides immense scope for conversion to further accommodation if required, subject to all necessary consents.

Ample driveway parking is provided in addition to a detached block-built garage, and the front and rear gardens are well enclosed to all sides and are, therefore, ideal for those with children and pets etc.


The village of Mabe Burnthouse is situated close to the outskirts of the expanding university town of Penryn, with the campus being an approximate ten/fifteen minute walk/cycle away. The facilities within the village include: a public house, hairdressers, general stores, county primary school and regular bus service. Nearby walks lead to College and Argal Reservoirs, around the latter of which there is a particularly picturesque circular walk. The port of Falmouth is approximately three miles distant, the cathedral city of Truro is approximately 10 miles distant, and the northern banks of the beautiful Helford River just three miles away. 'Bosparva' is, therefore, an ideal location for family and retirement purchasers alike.
