Never settling for anything less than the very best, Legacy Properties is the driving force behind some of the finest new homes in Cornwall.
Whilst there is a certain appeal about some of Cornwall’s character homes, take it from us, they can have their drawbacks. Older homes can be prone to a number of problems inherent in those built in centuries gone by, and whilst you do certainly benefit from the characterful features that are reminiscent of ‘way back when’, you also miss out on the many benefits and conveniences that new homes have to offer. With this in mind, let’s take a look at The Residences at Woodlands – the latest development from Legacy Properties, and a ‘casing point’, if you will, of the benefits that come with a home at the top end of Cornwall’s new-build market.
Overlooking the Gannel estuary near Newquay, Woodlands is a new boutique development – a stunning collection of ten luxury and private residential homes with frontline water views. They’re the latest in a string of incredible developments from the award-winning Legacy Properties, reflecting the company’s spectacular attention to quality and detail in all aspects of design and build. In short, this means state-of-the-art materials, appliances and technology, complemented by luxe interiors.
No detail has been overlooked. Local lighting designers Milard & Flo helped design the lighting layout and technology, keeping Legacy’s promise of delivering living spaces that are designed with precisely that in mind. The team also joined forces with Barton, installing the very latest in home automation into each residence, giving buyers the ability to control the lights, heating, TV, audio, even the blinds.
To put it simply, every home Legacy Properties builds is done so through collaboration with the most like-minded businesses they can find. The point, is to deliver residences that are built to be lived in, and whilst, upon viewing, you’ll see that the interiors and luxury touches are worthy of any show home, you’ll also see that they are completely practical – living up to the demands of those leading an active, by-the-sea lifestyle.
Stunning, secure and private, with each house enjoying its own private garden or outside space and two allocated parking spaces, plus access to beautifully landscaped communal gardens, and then the ocean beyond that, the residences at Woodlands demonstrate an exquisite attention to detail at every turn. Indeed, for anyone wondering whether life at the pinnacle of Cornwall’s luxury new-build market is for them, a viewing at Woodlands comes highly recommended.
