It is rare that a property such as Boscubben Farm, in this stunning position close to St Ives, comes to the market. An early viewing is advised for discerning purchasers looking to get away from it all.
This is an attractive small farm with Farmhouse, traditional farm buildings and land extending to 12.5 hectares (30.7 acres) or thereabouts.
Boscubben has been in the same family since 1977 when it was purchased from the Pilcher Family. The property is set in a quiet location with easy access to St Ives with its well-known beaches, artists, crafts and the Tate St Ives art gallery.
As well as a family home, the property lends itself to numerous uses including small holding with the keeping of horses/ponies as well as other livestock.
The Cornwall Coastal Footpath is in close proximity with walks to Seal Island, Wicca Pool and River Cove nearby, with views to The Carracks.
The property is situated approximately 3 miles from St Ives and 6 miles from St Erth near Hayle, where there is a station on the main railway line from Penzance to Paddington (5 hours). The A30 spine road out of Cornwall is also at St Erth, to meet the motorway network at Exeter (100 miles) to London (300 miles).

The stone barns in the farmyard lend themselves to conversion to dwellings, subject to gaining the necessary consents. In recent years Part Q Planning has enabled modern buildings such as the Dutch barn and lean to off in the mowhay to be converted to dwellings.
Strictly by appointment with the sole agents, John Coad & Son – . Viewers inspect the buildings at their own risk.
From St Ives, take the coast road B3306 to Zennor, St Just and Lands End. After approximately 3 miles, Boscubben will be found on right hand side with a ‘For Sale’ board at the entrance.
