Strong Off-Plan Sales At Cornish Coast Schemes

Posted 9 February 2022 by Keith Osborne

Acorn Property Group has reported exceptional off-plan interest in its new homes in sought-after locations in Cornwall...

WhatHouse? Award-winning housebuilder Acorn Property Group has revealed that Cornwall remains one of the most sought-after locations for their new homes, with two of its contemporary developments seeing significant sales off-plan before the homes are completed, with buyers keen to purchase for the location and Cornish lifestyle on offer.

Having long been a sought-after location for property, the COVID-19 lockdowns have led to more buyers then ever wanting access to outstanding nature and a more rural lifestyle, with Cornwall being the top choice.

Acorn, which has a portfolio of unique developments across the South West, has seen unprecedented levels of enquiries for their Cornwall developments, even when only initial CGIs were available for prospective buyers and before construction began. Two of the most successful are Treglos in Constantine Bay, and The Padstow Collection in Padstow.

Treglos offers a collection of 20 contemporary apartments, duplexes and penthouses alongside eight three- and four-bedroom houses with fantastic sea views. Located on the site of the former Treglos Hotel, the new development is positioned within walking distance of the spectacular golden sand of Constantine Bay and only four miles west of lifestyle hotspot Padstow.

Following considerable off-plan demand for Phase 1, the second phase was over 60% sold before construction began and there’s now only one property remaining. Due to fully complete in Q1 2023, the homes feature underfloor heating, Juliet balconies or private terraces with lawn, allocated private parking and designer fitted kitchens.

Located in Padstow just moments from the sought-after harbour, Acorn’s recent launch The Padstow Collection has also proved hugely popular. The exclusive collection comprises ten two- and three-bedroom homes across three buildings, each home will be finished to a luxurious specification and benefit from allocated parking and private outdoor space. With views over the Camel Estuary, the development is perfectly located for enjoying prime central Padstow, nearby Rock, and the spectacular Cornish countryside. The Padstow Collection is now over 70% reserved off-plan, with a preliminary brochure and CGIs available, and completion due for early 2023 .

Both developments have great sustainability features too, with buyers increasingly prioritising this when purchasing a new home. At both developments, a ground source heat pump will heat the homes and water and is an efficient, renewable energy solution. The homes have high-performance triple-glazed windows, and will feature cabling for electric vehicle charging points. The developments have enhanced U-values and air tightness, which along with the heat pumps will help to reduce operational running costs and carbon footprint.

At Treglos, and for some elements at The Padstow Collection, a reinforced concrete (RC) frame is used in the construction of the apartments. The frame will act as a heat sink in the winter months and slowly omit absorbed heat during the evening to reduce heating demand. Both developments are on brownfield sites, giving them a new lease of life.

Stuart Brereton MRICS, regional managing director and land director for Acorn Blue, said: “We are delighted with the buyer demand for Treglos in Constantine Bay and The Padstow Collection in Padstow, both of which are very exciting new developments in prime locations. More than ever, Cornwall is a sought-after location for a new home with demand outstripping supply. We are committed to a holistic approach to development, with our projects chosen for thoughtful design and outstanding locations, and this has translated into buyers keen to reserve their dream homes when only preliminary details are available and before construction even began.”

At Treglos, the price of the final home, a two-bedroom apartment, is £765,000. At The Padstow Collection, prices start from £725,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. Find out more about current Acorn developments across the South West of England.
