Full Description: SOLD - Bodriggan is a magical, rambling, evocative place set high above the Fowey estuary, two miles upriver from the open sea. The house dates from the early 1920s but feels like it�s been here much longer. It is enclosed by wild and abundant mature gardens, orchards and trees, planted over six decades by an enthusiastic and artistic gardener, which open dramatically to reveal the breathtaking view down the valley to the river and the enfolding hills beyond. The house is far from smart and could do with some updating, but there�s nothing to stop you moving in and living there straight away. The kitchen is its heart: light and bright with a conservatory and a big green Aga. The dining-room/hall, with beautiful wooden floor, opens onto a broad tiled verandah, a natural gathering point where it�s hard to drag yourself away from the view. Upstairs are five bedrooms, with another small bedroom � latterly an artist�s studio � up a separate flight of stairs. There�s also a bed-sitting room, with tiny kitchen, loo and shower and its own entrance, at the back of the house. In the grounds are several eccentric and somewhat dilapidated buildings including an old garage (currently an art gallery), a geodesic dome, and a self-contained studio known as the Hut, with bedroom, kitchen, shower, verandah and woodburning stove. Beyond is a field that�s perfect for pigs or ponies. Our family has been lucky enough to live in this enchanted place since 1947; now it�s someone else�s turn.
