The location Opportunities like this are incredibly rare. Silverdale Road is one of the most sought-after, residential positions in Falmouth where well-spaced, individual and substantial homes lie in good-sized gardens near the sea. Its location is superb, situated on the towns southern side, a few minutes walk to Swanpool and beach and to the coastal footpath, leading via Maenporth beach, to the Helford River.
Silverdale Road is a leisurely 5 -10 minute walk to the seafront, Gyllyngvase beach and café and like wise 10 -15 minutes from Falmouth town and harbourside where there is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and bars and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro, for Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks and Pendennis Shipyard are major contributors to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year-round vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and another in Penryn, as well as highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third deepest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK
the property We have not viewed or sold anything quite like Bosilliack for some time. The property presents an fabulous chance to secure a home with huge potential in great surroundings where the lake and beach are on ones' doorstep and Falmouth's seafront, town and harbourside, a leisurely 10 - 15 minute walk away.
Bosilliack was built in 1966 and has since only changed hands once, in 1985. The property is prominent and attractive when viewed from Silverdale Road but what's not apparent is how substantial Bosilliack is, where underneath, the bungalow's size is revealed and replicated as five 7' 6" (2.29m) high rooms plus a boiler room/workshop and integral garage. The three double bedroom bungalow is appealing in its own right with a fine 'L' shaped triple aspect reception room arranged as 20' (6.1m) lounge and separate dining room, out onto a south facing balconied terrace.
Bosilliack is in need of modernising. Depending on a buyer's requirements, this could involve a light touch, and a little expenditure to update, or indeed, given the property's valuable location, a more major project making use and inking the space beneath to perhaps create a fabulous two storey home. Subject to all necessary consents of course, there is also scope to create self-contained accommodation here; for income or family members or indeed extensive space from which to work from home. The gardens at Bosilliack are a good size and richly stocked, facing south to the rear and abutting an area designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There are two driveways to park several cars and a generous single size integral garage.
What an opportunity this presents. It is an instruction that excites us at Heather & Lay and one we wholeheartedly recommend!

Outside Bosilliack is a property of quality lying in a garden befitting of its standing and location where all is richly stocked and established. There are driveways to either side of the property, to the right to accommodate two/three cars in tandem, to the left a drive leading to the integral garage. A wide slate path and steps lead up to the front door.
The rear garden abuts a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is full of many shrubs and plants to provide real privacy, seclusion and a feeling of peacefulness. This has all the ingredients to create a very special place indeed.
