Buyers looking for the combination of a contemporary property with a historic location may find exactly what they are after at a new development in Cornwall by Cavanna Homes. However, with only eight houses for sale at this new homes development in Bodmin, buyers will have to be quick if they want to snap up a property.
Set just off Rhind Street, within the town centre's conservation area, Tower View is an attractive collection of three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties, the styles of which all echo the local architecture. Despite the development's small size, there are six types of home on offer, ranging from a pair of three-bedroom semi-detached townhouses, each with a parking space, to four four-bedroom detached homes with garages and parking. In addition, there are two three-bedroom detached houses, also with garages and parking.
The houses all have a variety of different finishes, featuring natural stone or render and some also have slate cladding. Some of the detailing featured at this development, such as the granite quoins and canopy pillars, has been sourced locally, something which is an important part of Cavanna's building ethos.
All these new homes in Cornwall have high-specification fitted bathrooms and kitchens and are designed to provide low-maintenance, energy-efficient living, with smoke-alarms, double-glazed windows and a 10-year NHBC Buildmark Warranty. Master bedrooms in the homes have en suites while many of the properties include much needed extra space in the form of a utility area. Prices at Tower View start from £219,950 for the townhouses, with the four-bedroom detached homes starting from £295,000.
"It is very close to the centre of Bodmin," says Karen Heywood-Cann, the sales manager at the development. "There is something here for everyone and we expect Tower View, which is named after the Bodmin Beacon, to appeal to both couples and families."
Local amenities include two hospitals, schools, a leisure centre, college, museums, library and nature reserve. For outdoor types, Bodmin is just 30 minutes from the spectacular beaches on both the north and south coasts of Cornwall.
