Property Description


Situated in a fabulous position between Devoran and Point.

Offered for sale for the first time since its conversion from a barn into a residential dwelling.

South West facing plot with parking, garaging and former piggery.

Council tax - F



Bojewyan is surprisingly a detached barn conversion although with its stone frontage and brick arch lintels all under a natural slate roof has the appearance of a traditional Cornish cottage. The situation is special and Chycoose remains somewhat undiscovered between the sought after creekside villages of Devoran and Penpol. Offered for sale for the first time since its conversion, Bojewyan offers a rare opportunity to live in a very peaceful and quiet location on the south Cornish coast, close to both Truro and Falmouth.


The house offers a conventional layout with an entrance hall, cloak room, refurbished kitchen and dining room, sitting room, conservatory and office to the ground floor with three bedrooms, one en-suite and a family bathroom to the first floor. The former piggery offers a great workshop or potential to convert.


The hamlets of Point and Penpol combine to form a residential community about five miles to the south of Truro. Chycoose lies on the very edge of Point. Restronguet Creek is very popular with boating enthusiasts and provides easy access to the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads). In the first half of the 19th century Devoran was a busy port shipping iron ore which was transported to the village from the inland mining areas via the Redruth and Chacewater four gauge railway which ran along the old tram road between Devoran and Penpol. Point is also at one end of the Bissoe cycle trail which runs along the creek to Devoran through Bissoe and eventually leads to the north Cornish coast at Portreath. There are golf courses at Truro and Falmouth. Local facilities in Devoran include the parish church, popular public house, doctors surgery and a modern primary school. Local day to day facilities are available in Carnon Downs which include a post office, supermarket, doctors surgery/pharmacy, dental practice, garden centre, village hall and regular bus connections to Truro and Falmouth.


Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants, bars, private and state schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The Hall for Cornwall is also a popular venue providing all year round entertainment and other cultural facilities include the Royal Cornwall Museum and the historic Cathedral.


Feock is a picturesque village situated between the Cathedral city of Truro and the port of Falmouth. Standing on the western shore of the River Fal and at the head of the Carrick Roads, Feock is readily accessible to Loe Beach with moorings and boat lay-ups together with direct access to some of the finest day sailing waters in the country. Surrounding the village is rolling countryside abounding with scenic walks. Just along the road is the National Trust gardens at Trellisick and the King Harry Ferry which offers a picturesque shortcut to the beaches and spectacular coastline of the Roseland Peninsula. There are general stores at Playing Place and Carnon Downs with more extensive amenities available in Truro.


The historic port of Falmouth has undergone major redevelopment in recent years with huge investment and is now thriving. The town has an excellent range of everyday facilities including banks, building societies, restaurants, schools and colleges as well as a branch railway line providing regular access to Truro. The harbour and beaches are significant attractions of the town and since 2003 Falmouth has also been home to the National Maritime Museum. For sailing enthusiasts there is direct access to Carrick Roads and the River Fal and several yacht marinas close by. It also has its own university with a campus at Woodlane and Tremough.
