Incredibly rare Georgian coastal Rectory enjoying fabulous views and beautiful formal gardens. This architecturally pleasing property offers so many of the elements that are on a buyers wish list for a house in Cornwall: Georgian Rectory, coastal location, sea views, the potential to create income if desired, stunning formal gardens and the list goes on. The property also enjoys a delightful sense of peace and privacy, without the feeling of total isolation, as there are two neighbouring properties that due to their positioning and the excellent planting within the gardens, each retains its privacy.
The Rectory draws you in with the fabulous sitting room making a fine place to sit and relax. The kitchen is of a more traditional style with a very convenient and good-sized adjacent boot room at the rear. The dining room is positioned to the front and makes the most of its lovely outlook over the garden. The large study is currently used as a music room with an excellent studio beside it and at the rear is a large utility, with this whole area offering potential to become a sizeable annexe. The bedrooms are well set out with a good size master and a lovely guest bedroom with two further bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
The fabulous gardens have been a true labour of love and are part of the National Gardens Scheme, offering a variety of colour and set out in interesting designs. On the bottom boundary of the garden is a superb raised viewing platform offering the most spectacular and truly panoramic views up and down the coast. The rear garden is a little haven with a wonderful raised lawn ideal for breakfasting. The stone outbuildings are very attractive and offer ample storage for boating and beach equipment.
The picture postcard village of Boscastle is 2 miles from The Old Rectory and is one of the most renowned and desirable coastal locations on the entire north Cornwall coast.
