Opportunities such as this rarely come to the market! A quite stunningly situated detached character cottage tucked away in the enchanting Upper Cot Valley. Approached via its own private driveway Jasmine House is set in over six acres of Cornish countryside containing woodland, orchard, stream and a variety of outbuildings.

The property dates back to the mid-19th Century and offers well-proportioned accommodation which now requires a programme of refurbishment.

The cottage is steeped in history and most recently was the subject of a painting by British contemporary artist Kurt Jackson entitled “Bosworlas Rookery, Jasmine Cottage”.

Interest is anticipated from those looking to create a wonderful family home surrounded by acres of countryside to match as well as those looking for soothing tranquillity that only places such as Jasmine Cottage can offer. Others may see the possibility to further enhance the cottage through extension or the potential for development of some of the outbuildings, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
