A coastal hideaway that was rebuilt after it was destroyed by a fire is on the market for the first time in more than 60 years.

The St Dellan hideaway is nestled on the shore of the picturesque St Loy's Cove in west Cornwall and will cost its new owners more than £3million to acquire.

The five-bedroom property has been in the current owner's family since 1962 and is described by estate agents Lillicrap Chilcott as a 'once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a real hidden gem'.

However, the realtors admit the house could now benefit from some modernisation and, subject to planning permissions, the potential buyers could enhance, update or completely redesign the coastal retreat.

The current property, which was built after the fire in 1978, contains 2,727 sq ft of accommodation with a kitchen/breakfast room, lounge/dining room, utility room and two garages on the ground floor.

On the first floor are five bedrooms and two bathrooms, while outside there is a detached modern workshop/barn, a parking area and the extensive gardens.

St Dellan sits yards away from a little known rocky beach on the South West Coast Path and has 11 acres of gardens and grounds.

It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), containing an ancient wooded valley and panoramic south easterly views out to sea.

To the east the coast path takes you to Lamorna and Penzance and to the west to Porthcurno and Land's End.

Tom Powell, from Lillicrap Chilcott, says the property lies in a highly sought after area with excellent walking and birdwatching spots, and plenty of surfing and sandy beaches nearby.

He added: 'This property really is as good as it looks. The setting is absolutely magical, it's completely peaceful and breathtakingly rugged.

'This part of west Cornwall is known for being dramatic and this is no exception. You've got the high steep granite cliffs and the boulder beach below and far-reaching views out to sea. It is totally beautiful and completely unspoilt.

'And to have that amount of land in a beach-fronting position is very rare indeed.'
