Maer View – a collection of luxury homes from Burrington Estates that pays homage to Cornwall’s way of life.
Cornwall is no longer the tourist destination it was once considered to be. The bucket-and-spade days by the sea are still very much a draw for those choosing to holiday on native shores, as are the dreamy walks along the South West Coast Path. But for many, especially as it continues to build on its reputation as one of the UK’s top culinary destinations, and as a county with an increasingly impressive offering of luxury homes (from modern developments to historic estates and cosy countryside cottages), it is becoming a place where memories are made, and therefore one that fewer and fewer find themselves ever wanting to leave. Its rugged, beautiful landscape runs through the blood of those who call Cornwall home, and it is to this idea that Burrington Estates intends to pay tribute – by building a new collection of luxury homes in the heart of Cornwall’s northernmost town.
Taking its name from Maer Lake, which is protected by Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Maer View sympathetically occupies a position near an established ornithological site, where the reserve’s wetland meadow and open water features attract myriad grazing animals and wildfowl. Ensuring that the development lives up to Burrington Estates’ commitment to a cleaner, more environmentally friendly future, the collection of homes at Maer View benefit from sustainable technology, promoting a greener lifestyle and paving the way for future generations. Air-source heat pumps provide underfloor heating in each property; wildlife friendly bee bricks provide a safe haven for pollinators, and every home comes with the option of PV solar panels and charging points for electric cars.
The site lies within walking distance of Bude. A popular destination for many lifestyle activities, Bude is primarily known for its assortment of outdoor leisure pursuits, like surfing. Local beaches include Crooklets and Summerleaze, the latter being home to the ‘Pepper Pot’ – a picturesque landmark erected in 1835 as a refuge for the coastguard. It’s also home to Bude Sea Pool – a tidal lido popular among locals and visitors alike, and a fine example of the town’s renowned coastal features. Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club lies in the centre of town and provides 18 holes of enjoyable yet challenging golf, and the development is only 51 miles from Exeter, meaning a city break is never far away.
Burrington Estates’ name flows through Cornwall, with developments occupying idyllic locations such as Truro, Fowey and Illogan, and as it brings Maer View to life, it remains dedicated to safeguarding Cornwall’s way of life, by providing a standard of luxury homes that are built sustainably for the future.
