Charming and well-designed family home, in need of modernisation, located in the waterside village of Lelant. Providing up to five bedrooms and set in a generous plot.

The village comprises a large sandy beach to the Atlantic side, smaller coves along the estuary, a Norman church and the famous 18th Century pub, The Badger Inn. Overlooking the Hayle Estuary there is a spectacular links golf course (West Cornwall Golf Club) with views stretching up towards the iconic Godrevy Lighthouse, made famous by Virginia Woolfe.

Bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches, including Porthmeor and Porthminster beaches, nearby St Ives Bay caters for any seaside activity, as well as providing an eclectic range of boutique shops and galleries, including the renown Tate Gallery. Carbis Bay attracts families with one of Cornwall's eight award-winning Blue Flag 2017 beaches, with a safe bathing beach bordered by subtropical gardens.

A scenic branch railway line links Lelant, Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London-Penzance line at nearby St. Erth; Cornwall Airport (Newquay) offers three daily return flights to London Gatwick and many other domestic and European destinations.


The Property

For sale for the first time in 34 years, this charming and substantial house was, from circa 1934, the childhood home of author Rosemunde Pilcher and has had just two owners since.

This imposing property, in need of modernisation, provides generous and well-designed accommodation surrounded by beautiful gardens. The spacious dual aspect living room is located to the front of the property and has a feature fireplace, whilst the kitchen and dining room are located to the rear. The dining room is dual aspect and enjoys a pleasant outlook over the garden. Upstairs the accommodation comprises up to five bedrooms, but could be reconfigured into two en suite bedrooms, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Gardens and Grounds

Green Loaning is set towards the front of a generous south west facing plot, therefore enjoying plenty of all day summer sunshine. The mature and well stocked gardens are mainly laid to lawn bordered with an array of pretty shrubs and flower beds. The single detached garage provides useful storage and there is plenty of parking for several cars.


Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas. Gas central heating.
