Comfort from the canopy

With many of us searching for our fantasy homes, we take a look at a particularly unique property that wasn’t on the market for long.


When we consider the home of our dreams, how often can an abode among the tree-tops present itself as a tangible reality? Imagine waking up to the sound of the birds perched in the canopy just metres from your window, or stepping outside with your morning coffee to the most breathtaking view of the valley around you. With the feel of a luxury forest cabin resting in its own private leafy oasis, Bosorna recently invited this very opportunity for its new owners.

Nestled in a quiet valley, free from the noise of traffic and bustling crowds, Bosorna sits on the edge of the community minded village of St Mawgan, with Mawgan Porth just a walk away. The detached single storey property boasts a charming location away from the madding crowd, elevated to sit amongst the surrounding tree-tops to enjoy the most illuminating position away from the shade below.

The dual aspect kitchen and dining room enjoys views of the garden and surrounding woodland, lit further by a large skylight, and features a cosy study area and twin-glazed doors that lead you through to the spacious sitting room. Surrounded by the incredible vista of the valley, the room holds an open invitation for cosy sofas and reading nooks in the wonderful light that fills the space, and the sliding doors beckon you out onto the balcony that wraps itself around the front of the house for a morning coffee amongst the dawn chorus, or an evening under the stars at the day’s end.


The master bedroom shares these astonishing views along with access to the balcony, and features a contemporary woodburner on a slate hearth for the cosiest of winter evenings, and the further two bedrooms make for a home fit for a family. The bathroom adds a touch of luxury with underfloor heating to keep the toes warm after a rainfall shower, and the double garage below rounds it all off with a flair of convenience and self-containment. For guests looking to be further removed, ‘Little Treetops’ offers a world of its own, featuring an en-suite bedroom with its own independent and internal access off to the side of the house.


If the house itself wasn’t enough to inspire calm reflection and contemplation, the gardens, rich with sub-tropical plants, draw you further into a world of peace and privacy, flanked by terraces, decking, and a sunlit stretch of lawn. Bosorna represents a rare Cornish gem, and it’s easy to see why this golden opportunity attracted 32 viewings in just four days, and no fewer than 17 offers. Quickly sold by Shore Partnership to a family who intend to live there full time, we are in no doubt that this enchanting property will be greatly enjoyed by its new owners.
