    About this property

    • Bodennick was originally conceived in the 1960's by notable Truro based architect, John Crowther, who designed this and the neighbouring property to respond to the incredible natural setting, highlighting key views and integrating the building mass into the landform. The split-level steel and concrete house incorporated state of the art construction processes at the time, creating dramatic horizontal and vertical open spaces. The house has been modernised but retains many of the original design features including the double height internal courtyard, the many picture windows, the beautifully crafted cedar parquet flooring and the grand central staircase that flows down to a breath taking view of the water.

      The house is approached by a private, sweeping drive which provides the foreground to a modest western elevation. Mature planting conceals much of the property and it's only once inside do you experience the full impact of the architecture and setting. The home has been renovated and maintained to the highest standards, creating a stunning and welcoming home.

      Ground Floor and Lower Ground Floor - The impressively spacious entrance hall welcomes you into the heart of the building and your eye is immediately drawn down the broad staircase to a framed view of the awe inspiring setting, where you appreciate the full impact of this incredible location. Turning southwards into a sequence of striking reception and living spaces, the light floods in to the 27-foot wide sitting room the from its vast windows providing a ring side seat for wildlife and yacht watching. The sitting room flows into a cedar parquet floored dining area and the contemporary kitchen diner. The open plan kitchen diner features plenty of below counter and wall mounted cabinets with a range of fitted appliances; a Siemens fan oven, a combi oven, induction hob, a hood extractor, a 3/4 height fridge/freezer unit and an integrated dishwasher. Doors open onto a larder, a double height internal courtyard and a series of ancillary storage rooms including a laundry, store and wc. From the main entrance hall there is a coat cupboard, a large cloakroom with a secret door to a double storage room in the roof space and a corridor leads to the sleeping quarters with three large bedrooms, a family bathroom, a WC and ensuite bathroom and dressing room to the principal bedroom suite.

      First Floor - Ascending another turning staircase is a family bathroom and double bedroom to one side with a full length dressing room. To the opposite side is a vast split level bedroom with a large walk-in wardrobe which makes a stunning aerial vantage point.

      Exterior, gardens, and garage - The gated entrance drive slopes down towards the house and its two double garages, one detached tucked behind a raised lawn. A steep single bitumen topped track connects the drive to the waterfront on one side of the house. Fencing, retaining walls, mixed clipped hedges and mature shrubs separate the property from the passing lane and the neighbouring properties. The oversized double garage building has an attached workshop space ideal for boat and bike storage. The rear garden slopes down to the waters edge, the warm, sheltered microclimate contributing to the success of a number of large exotic plants in the garden. A stepped path winds down from an upper terrace through a wisteria clad pergola to the walled shore terrace. A flight of steps leads down to a dry dock area with a mechanical boat winch at the top of the slipway. The property comes with 135 feet of rocky shoreline stretching down to the mean high-water level. The garden is beautifully planted, tended, encircled in mature and interesting flowering tree stock, all maintained regularly by an experienced gardener.

    Local information

    • 'Bodennick' lies just over a mile away from the picture postcard village of Feock, on the south eastern slopes of Restronguet Point. The property overlooks the beautiful natural harbour of the 'Carrick Roads', the ancient name of the Falmouth estuary, with far reaching panoramic views across to the Roseland Peninsula, south to St Anthony's lighthouse at St Mawes and northwards towards Loe Beach and The Trelissick Estate. Restronguet Point has become an exclusive address due to its verdant setting, incredible views, access to sheltered waters and its cultural heritage. This narrow, island like ridge of land has inspired owners, writers, artists and architects for years, culminating in an exclusive trove of note worthy houses and gardens. Bodennick is set in around 0.65 acres of secluded, sub tropical gardens on the deep water side of Restronguet Point. Its elevated position commands long distance views across the busy sailing waters to the estuary's idyllic inland ports, creeks and harbours.
    • Historically this peninsula was once a busy hub of shipbuilding and oyster fishing and is now one of Cornwall's most desirable coastal addresses, within ten minutes of both the Duchy's capital, Truro and the harbour town of Falmouth. This substantial and impressive property lies within walking distance of Feock's historic maritime village and a short paddle around the Peninsula, to the award winning Pandora Inn. While enjoying its remote coastal setting, the property is conveniently located within easy reach of several of the area's popular destinations including yacht clubs, golf courses, restaurants and cafés and the town of Falmouth and the village of St Mawes can be reached by a short ferry trip from the Trelissick estate's jetty. The area includes an impressive choice of wine bars, restaurants, boutique shops and maritime attractions, including the Blue River Table, a private dining experience aboard a classic motor boat.
    • The peninsula has easy access to the A39 and the mainline rail station at Truro, only 6 miles away, offers high speed connections to London and Scotland. There is a good range of schools locally with Devoran primary school nearby and Truro and Falmouth have a selection of public and private schools with 'Good' to 'Outstanding' Ofsted rankings.
