The Building of St. Hilary
Originally, the proposed site within Darleyford was home to a cow shed and piggeries but in April 1962, a Miss E. M Sargent instructed the local architects, Higman & Ford of Liskeard, to design a 3 bedroomed bungalow with a separate garage. The plans were approved by Cornwall County Council on the 10th May 1962 and then subsequently altered in the November 1962, omitting the garage. The bungalow was then completed in 1963 and given the name St. Hilary, after the rather small pretty rural village in west Cornwall, whose church is dedicated to St Hilary of Poitiers - The meaning of the name " Hilary" comes from the Latin word for happy or cheerful.

St Hilary was up for sale in 2004 after it's 2nd owner had remodeled the bungalow. They added an attic conversion, accessible via a flight of outdoor stairs round the back of the house, a basement and a double garage.
