Property Summary

*Preliminary advert* An incredible opportunity to acquire a grand and extensive property sitting within grounds of around 2/3rds of an acre set centrally within the highly regarded village of Lelant. This is one of the most iconic buildings in the area, run for many years as a well respected residential care home which closed its doors in June 2021. Built in 1902 for the local St Ives bank manager Mr Grylls, the property was a private residence up until the 30's when it became a hotel. The property converted to a care in 1984 and the current owners took over the property in 1985. 
This super, rambling residence has many throwbacks to it former life with decorative coving and large grand staircase. Sitting within its own extensive ground with sweeping driveway, the property would make a wonderful private residence of course but also anyone wanting to perhaps convert it to a high quality guest house and of the course the development opportunities (subject to planning permissions). Please follow the video and floorplan. For further information please contact us in the first instance as viewings are by appointment only.
