Sales success for new apartments in prime Cornish location
Location still holds the key for apartment buyers in St Austell after Elan sold most of the apartments in its latest phase at White River Place off-plan.
The housebuilder is celebrating after the development, which is ideally situated close to the town centre, became its new homes success story of 2012. Ten of the 14 apartments in the current phase, Trinity Court West, have now been sold but the remaining properties still offer a good mix of one and two-bedroom designs.
Selling through agents Liddicoat Sanderson Potter, White River Place offers a stylish low maintenance lifestyle to professionals, couples and downsizers. Part of the White River Place shopping and entertainment hub, the apartments will be ready to move into at the end of May.
Beverley Rickard, sales manager for Elan Homes, said: “We’re delighted to have linked up with Liddicoat Sanderson Potter to sell our apartments at White River Place. As local agents they are highly experienced in helping homebuyers in the area. The partnership is already proving to be very successful as we have seen strong sales in recent weeks. We look forward to achieving ongoing success with future phases of this sought-after development.”
Ashley Potter, a partner at Liddicoat Sanderson Potter, said: “We’ve seen a surge of sales towards the end of last year and the beginning of this year, and have enjoyed strong sales off-plan. I believe the popularity of Elan’s apartments is down to affordable pricing, the high specification on offer and the prime location of the development; it’s within walking distance of the town centre and train station and there’s an abundance of leisure and shopping facilities available at White River Place itself.
“The homes have been selling to a range of different buyers including young professionals and people looking to downsize as well as those who want a bolt hole in a beautiful part of the country close to the scenic Cornish coastline. We’ve also sold to buy-to-let investors who have spotted the strong rental potential of the apartments.”

They are located on the Western edge of St Austell, and offer easy access to surrounding towns and the coast.
Prices are from £99,995 to £136,995.
