    About this property

    • The situation of Bodrigy, which is Cornish for 'The House by the Sea', is outstanding and quite unique. Located less than four hundred metres from the centre of the village on the Southwest Coast path, the house has 270 degree views out over the English Channel, cove and village. The property was completely rebuilt and enlarged by the current owners ten years ago creating a spacious, modern, hi spec and extremely comfortable family home.

      Ground Floor - A wide front door entrance, with side glass panel opens into a large, light filled, double height hall with a part vaulted ceiling. All rooms on the ground floor have oak flooring. Immediately to the left is the bespoke oak and glass staircase to the first floor, ahead the main seating, dining and to the right the utility room, WC, and a large bedroom. Double, part glazed doors open into the large “L” shaped double aspect sitting, dining and kitchen. The living area has double French doors opening onto a paved patio area with views over the cove and village along with a traditional Log burner on a slate hearth. The dining area has four-panel Bi-fold doors plus a second door opening onto the main outdoor Southeast facing entertaining area. The well-equipped kitchen has gloss white wall and base units along with a central island with breakfast bar all topped with locally sourced granite worktops. Within the kitchen there is space for a large fridge freezer, dishwasher, and under counter/wine fridge along with the following integrated appliances, two separate induction hobs and a double oven.

      Off the main living area is a further dual aspect reception room which is currently used as a games room which has a large bay window overlooking the cove and village. The cloakroom WC is off the entrance hall and contains a separate door to the boiler room. The large utility room has a door to the exterior, white gloss wall and base units along with a sink, space and plumbing for two washing machines, a tumble drier and a slimline dishwasher. The ground floor bedroom is a large double with views out over the village and has a large built-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower.

      First Floor - At the top of the stairs a part galleried landing leads to the five bedrooms and the family bathroom. All five of the bedrooms are doubles and four have en suite bathrooms and have views out over the ocean, cove and or village. The dual aspect, principal bedroom is on the left at the top of the stairs and has a vaulted ceiling with a central wooden beam, a large “A” frame window with sliding door out on to a private Southeast facing balcony with space for a Bistro style table and chairs along with a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in rainfall shower. There are three further bedrooms which all have built-in wardrobes, part vaulted ceilings and en-suite bathrooms with walk-in rainfall showers. The fifth bedroom has a vaulted beamed ceiling with a built-in wardrobe and views out over the village. The separate, standalone family bathroom has a vaulted ceiling, roof Velux window and a bath with an over-bath shower.

      GARDENS AND EXTERIOR - 'The House by the Sea' sits in grounds of around an acre on the hillside overlooking Cadgwith Cove, the village and the ocean. The gardens, mainly laid to lawn, wrap round the property on differing levels. A paved pathway leads down from the parking area to the house.

      ENTERTAINING AREAS - There are three patio areas in the garden, all with magnificent sea views with the larger having a Hot Tub. BBQ Area: There is a double brick built charcoal BBQ to the left of the main entertaining patio. Boules Court: Situated in the corner of the garden by the newly erected flagpole the 9.5 metre Boules court benefits from 270-degree ocean views.

      Lighting & Power. There is both lighting and power throughout the garden.

      Southwest Coastal Path - The Southwest Coast path ascends from the village and follows the boundary of 'The House by the Sea'. A private gate (lockable) on the lower terrace gives access to the coastal path and offers a short walk down to the centre of the village and two beaches.

      Private Parking - Having parking in central Cadgwith is almost unheard of and having such a large parking space (up to eight cars) this close to the centre of the village is an enormous benefit. More cars can be accommodated if needed via a sloping driveway down to one of the lower lawns.

    Local information

    • Cadgwith is everybody's idea of an archetypal fishing village with its tight cluster of thatched cottages lining the sides of the valley and the small fleet of colourful fishing boats winched up on the shingle beach. The fact that the boats are still in use and the local pub (The Cadgwith Cove Inn) is renowned for its singing of Cornish songs of a Tuesday and Friday evening is testament to the traditional character of this village still being alive and well. The village also has a thriving gig club, a restaurant/café, The Crab Shack which offers a great selection of fresh fish and a small village shop.
    • The cove's orientation offers some protection from the prevailing south-westerly winds that blow the strongest and has two small beaches. The working fishing beach is in front of the village where the slipway is right on the road, separating this from the adjacent (swimming) beach is a small rocky outcrop called the Todden. The large cliff to the south of the cove is known as the Man o' War upon which 'The House by the Sea' stands.
    • Ruan Minor, just over half a mile away, has an independent village store and Post Office, offering local produce sourced from the surrounding area, along with a community Café and a Doctors Surgery. Lizard Village is only three and a half miles away and is the most southerly settlement on the British mainland. There is an excellent primary school, a number of active social clubs, three pubs, several local cafes and superb butchers arranged around the village green and surrounded by National Trust land. More varied shopping and dining facilities can be found in Mullion, which also hosts an outstanding secondary school and excellent golf course approximately five miles north-west.
    • The Lizard Peninsula is renowned for its unique scenery, flora and fauna. Much of the coastline is protected by the National Trust and the surrounding countryside is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, characterised by towering serpentine cliffs, magnificent beaches and pretty fishing villages. The Lizard's varied strata and microclimate allow 600 species of flowering plant, nearly a quarter of all UK species, to thrive here, including Cornish Heath, found nowhere else in Britain.
    • The market town of Helston is 11 miles away and has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities, whilst the cathedral city of Truro, approximately 31 miles away, is the municipal centre of the county. Travel links to the area are good, with the Lizard Peninsula being served by wide roads and the A30 providing dual carriageway access through Cornwall from the M5 at Exeter. There are mainline railway stations at Redruth and Truro and Cornwall Airport (Newquay), offers both domestic and international locations.
