Redefining New Home Living

Legacy Properties – a multi-award winning Cornish house builder, putting quality and sustainability at the top of the agenda.

By embracing thoughtful design, contemporary elegance and environmental responsibility, Legacy Properties has been redefining luxury new home living in Cornwall for over fifteen years.


As a modern builder of quality homes, they are committed to reducing their impact on the environment by using sustainable energy technologies and materials to create homes which are energy efficient with minimised running costs. All new homes include energy saving features and achieve excellent EPC A energy ratings. Offering homeowners an easy way to live an energy efficient lifestyle as standard, all Legacy Properties benefit from discrete integrated PV panels and air source heat pumps. Homes are pre-wired for external EV charging points and each home includes at least one Green & Blue wildlife home, either bee bricks, bat and swift boxes or bird baths.  


What separates Legacy Properties from other construction companies can be found in their approach to all of their builds. It is thoughtful and considered and above all bespoke to the location. They certainly don’t subscribe to the view that a one answer solution fits all. In fact, the Legacy process begins from the day a site is located to the point when the new owners are handed their keys. Retaining this level of interest and attention to detail ensures that they deliver something that they and new occupants can be justifiably proud of.

Each new site is individually surveyed to ensure that what’s being built integrates smoothly with the locality. From this starting point their in-house team of architects then begin the process of designing ‘neighbourhoods’ rather than just bland looking estates. Throughout these initial stages the driving idea is to create homes that maximise indoor and outdoor spaces combining aesthetic beauty with the practical requirements of everyday living.


Of course, with this approach Legacy Properties can ensure that everything adheres to their high standard of build quality. By applying their wealth of construction experience they can guarantee they deliver homes to last a lifetime, every time. From concept to completion, their expert site managers and specially selected construction teams and trade partners take personal pride in delivering the highest quality homes at every new development.


Going above and beyond what is expected, they also ensure that the homes they build are integrated into the existing fabric of a community whilst also providing new resources to encourage people to come together. A case in point was their recent development at Halwyn Meadows in Crantock, which included ten new allotment plots, which were handed over to the parish council exclusively for the village community. They also helped with the construction of the village hall extension. Their attitude is to be applauded, running contrary to the perceived notion that modern developers are only motivated by profit.


Enhancing their offering still further, they are proud supporters and advocates for using local businesses and wherever possible engage local trades and people.

As we have already said all Legacy Properties’ new ‘neighbourhoods’ are small and exclusive, individually designed to create bespoke new living zones, which are sympathetic to their locality, reflecting and celebrating the characteristics and style of their surroundings. Making the most of their special locations, many of Legacy Properties developments also benefit from having incredible views. One such is Kingswood above Pentewan Valley, where they have built twenty-four luxury 4 & 5 bed homes. It’s the perfect location, with Cornwall’s main transport route, the A30, just a 10-mile drive away, and the cathedral city of Truro only 15 miles away. Here you’ll find everything has been carefully designed to showcase the best of laid-back, relaxed Cornish living, using natural organic fabrics and textures, incorporating colours that are inspired by an earthy colour palette, whilst keeping interiors fresh and light. Building materials are carefully chosen to reflect the beautiful natural tones, from natural slate roofing on all homes, to Cornish stone and slate cladding and the use of sustainably sourced larch timber on many property exteriors. 


Not a million miles from here is another recent development that embraces the views that can be had over the Cornish landscape. The Grange is a superb collection of three-, four- and five-bedroom luxurious contemporary homes, located in the heart of the much sought after village of Goonhavern. The village itself offers a wonderful blend of vibrant rural life and community with its busy village hall, popular pub and sought after school, plus, many of North Cornwall’s finest beaches, including St Agnes, Perranporth and Crantock. It is the perfect location for modern active families.


As we go to press, both of these locations still have homes that are ready for occupation. So, if you’re on the lookout then Legacy Properties are there to help. They understand that purchasing a new home can be stressful, which is why they try to make the process as smooth as possible. They have a dedicated team of experienced sales executives who are on hand to provide detailed information and tours of the new homes site.


If you find yourself in the fortunate position of having reserved a Legacy home, the team will work behind the scenes to ensure information is passed quickly to your solicitor to ensure a smooth exchange. Before completion their focus is to make sure everything is ready for you to move straight in; it is important to them that you are happy with your new home which is why they have a stringent quality checking process. You won’t receive your keys until they are satisfied all of their quality standards have been met. What’s more, a full homeowner pack is provided when you move in, along with an in-depth ‘discover your property’ accompanied walk-through, to ensure you have everything you need for a stress-free move. They also provide an after-care service and are on hand to answer any questions or queries you might have about your new home while you are settling in.


And once the dust has settled you can relax and discover your brand-new living environment. From the high-end finishes, to the practical layout you’ll come to appreciate such things as the British built contemporary kitchen, incorporating high spec Miele appliances; wine coolers and instant hot water kitchen taps; low-level courtesy lighting and heated towel rails in the bathrooms; well considered storage throughout and space to park cars – including pre-wiring for EV storage units along with unusually large, enclosed gardens and added security features including RING doorbells.


This summer they will have built their 250th Legacy home in Cornwall!  Looking ahead they tell us that they will follow through with their commitment to put their homes under the harshest scrutiny, by entering professional awards which compare their homes to the best ones in Cornwall, the country and internationally.


They’ll also continue working with the best local suppliers to ensure that their new homes are truly exceptional and represent the best in luxury, contemporary, eco-conscious and responsible design.
