Rare opportunity to purchase World Heritage site property
Award winning Living Structures UK is providing a rare opportunity to purchase world class property at its Rocky Lane development in Cornwall, which is situated within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St Agnes.
Thinking of a World Heritage Site conjures up picturesque castles, nature reserves, forests, lakes, parks, protected coastlines and much more. There are currently 28 sites in the UK that are proud to have been awarded this prestigious status from an organisation that is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year; one of them being the rugged and stunningly beautiful Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape.
Scattered with engine houses, foundries, new towns, ports and harbours, this historical mining landscape is now the backdrop to the Rocky Lane development in Trevaunance Cove.
Building new homes close to, let alone on a World Heritage Site, comes up against very tight planning laws, but, when Livings Structures proposed their architecturally and thoughtfully designed homes, it was easy to see that they would not only compliment, but blend and empathise with their surroundings.
Having a property in the midst of a World Heritage Site can offer those looking to purchase a second home a huge asset. With the amenities of why this land was chosen, literally on your doorstep, the renting possibilities could be phenomenal, making this acquisition a very desirable one.
Externally each property is finished with red cedar siding to blend in with their natural wooded surroundings, whilst positioned in such a way to give uninterrupted privacy. There is at least one large sheltered outdoor living space, either a raised decking or roof top terrace, offering Al Fresco options, whilst the floor to ceiling windows and doors means you can enjoy the views and natural light in the winter without getting cold.
Internal specifications are luxurious with well thought out kitchens featuring high gloss units with stone work tops and ‘A’ rated NEFF integrated appliances. Bathrooms are complete with Porcelanosa suites, Italian tiling and heated towel rails. Engineered oak wood flooring with under floor heating is standard throughout the reception areas, whilst there is also a wood burner stove fitted to the living room.
The quaint and very picturesque village of St Agnes, known for its warm welcome, offers a good selection of pubs, cafes, craft shops and galleries. A stroll through the village will inevitably take you to the famous steep terrace of ships Captains’ cottages known as ‘Stippy Stappy’, which was featured in Winston Graham’s Poldark novels.
For the outdoor enthusiast there are numerous possibilities on offer, including surfing on some of the UK’s best surfing beaches, exploring the National Trust Coastal pathways, historical caves, engine houses, mines and museums, whilst a short drive away will take you to one of Cornwall’s main visitor attractions The Eden Project.
Prices range from £295,000 for a one-bedroom (900 sq ft) house to £650,000 for a four-bedroom (1,700 sq ft) house and there is no stamp duty payable on this development.
