Believed to be one of the oldest properties in Boscastle with parts dating back to the early 18th Century, 1 Jordan Vale represents a uniquely rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and hugely versatile cottage situated in a quiet elevated position within Boscastle, just a short walk to the historic and bustling harbour, beautifully preserved and maintained by the National Trust.
This distinctive, unique and cleverly adapted property incorporates a three bedroom cottage together with a charming one bedroom first floor apartment and a self contained and completely independent commercial retail space - each with their own private entrance.
Original chunky beams and slate floors are highly prevalent within the cottage. The main dining and living space is split level and incorporates both a multi fuel stove and open fire which has a beautiful solid slate surround. There is a separate L shaped kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted cabinets, integral appliances and granite work surfaces, a huge amount of additional storage and a built in corner seating bench. A front and rear porch provides a choice of access to the cottage. Heading up the turned pine staircase with contemporary glass inserts, the first floor landing is full of natural light by virtue of a thoughtfully installed skylight. Two of the bedrooms each have high vaulted ceilings and original beams. The master bedroom is an excellent size and even has an integral shower enclosure and wash hand basin while the second and third bedrooms are smaller doubles. The family bathroom is complete with elegant white porcelain sanitary ware and a panelled bath with shower over and glass shower screen.
With a bird's eye view overlooking Boscastle's picturesque Jordan Valley, Jordan Vale apartment is a charming little bolt-hole for two with its own private entrance. The cottage style kitchen is fully equipped with ample space for a dining table and chairs. Step down into the sitting area which overlooks the valley below. The pretty en-suite double bedroom is beautifully furnished and leads out to the Juliet balcony, the perfect spot to enjoy the valley views. The ground floor self contained commercial space has historically had a number of incarnations, including being the local post office at one time. The main retail space has a beautiful and original slate floor, ceiling beams, large paned windows and a stable door. Beyond this is a cloakroom, a utility area and a good size storeroom with integral shelving.
Externally, 1 Jordan Vale has off road parking for approximately three vehicles. The gardens consist of a raised terrace full of established plants, shrubs and small trees which surround a private paved patio. Timber sleeps surround the patio which offers ample space for garden furniture and al fresco dining. There is even a large summerhouse with power.
