Each of the five properties will include well-designed kitchens with integrated appliances, spacious family rooms and good-size bedrooms. The homes will benefit from double garages, excellent garden sizes and a private access road leading into the development.

Burrington Estates New Homes will contribute to the local infrastructure levy and are working closely with the local parish council to ensure construction progresses smoothly.

Rockbeare has been specially selected by our developments team as it is a highly desirable place to live in the region, and ideally placed for for these luxury five bedroom properties.”

Leading South West developer tackles Truro’s affordable housing crisis

Leading South West developer tackles Truro’s affordable housing crisis

The number of new homes available is at a 10 year low, with many of these properties unavailable on the affordable homes market. In a bid to tackle this crisis, we are proud to be creating 26 affordable properties at our latest development in Truro, Trispen Meadows.

Working in partnership with LiveWest, the South West’s largest provider of affordable homes, has enabled local families to access the new homes at Trispen Meadows. LiveWest have over 36,000 homes across the region and will manage the rented and shared ownership homes at the scheme.

Our ongoing partnership with LiveWest and Ocean Housing, who supported the 10 affordable homes at nearby development Penrose View, is the start of many collaborations with affordable homes providers, both in Cornwall and across the South West in Devon and Dorset.

Increasing affordable housing in the region forms part of Cornwall Council’s key areas for development. The county was awarded the second highest national allocation of New Homes Bonus in 2017, ensuring more new affordable homes become available. Mike Eathorne-Gibbons, Cornwall Council Cabinet Member representing the area including St Erme and Trispen, said: “I am delighted with this development. It meets a long overdue need for local affordable housing. The property designs and layout of the site are excellent. I’m sure tenants and owners will be very pleased with their new homes. I wish them well.”

David Matthews, Development Director at Burrington Estates New Homes, said, “We have built a great partnership with LiveWest that we hope to continue to strengthen as we build more homes across the region. Affordable housing is absolutely vital to the growth of the housing market in Truro, and we’re proud to offer an average of 30% affordable new homes on our developments.”

Shaun Marsden, Site Manager at Trispen Meadows, spoke for the whole team, “Whether we are welcoming new homeowners or tenants moving into their rented or shared ownership homes, our main aim is to create wonderful communities where people feel welcome and, most importantly, at home.”

Trispen Meadows is a collection of 85 new homes within the delightful village of Trispen. With nearby access to Truro, popular seaside towns and the Cornish countryside, the new homes have been greatly received on the open market. Each of the homes have been designed to be in keeping with the local surroundings and make use of local materials.

Work on the £2.75 million scheme began in October 2017 with the first new affordable homes handed over in November of this year.

Executive Director at LiveWest, Russell Baldwinson, said “We are delighted to be working alongside Burrington Estates. We are really impressed with the scheme and the quality of the homes. Our customers will be delighted.”

Open market properties at Trispen Meadows, a mix of two, three and four bedroom new homes, are available from £210,000. Help to buy, part exchange and a range of assisted purchase schemes are available. Contact trispen.meadows@burringtonestates.com.

August Budget 2018: Extension of Help to Buy

August Budget 2018: Extension of Help to Buy

Last week, Chancellor Philip Hammond disclosed his 2018 Budget, revealing that the Help to Buy equity loan scheme will be succeeded in 2021 by a new first-time buyer Help to Buy scheme which will run for two years.

The Government has stated that the future scheme is targeted at those most in need and will be for first time buyers only – but no changes to eligibility for the existing scheme are intended to take place before 2021.

Burrington Estates New Homes welcomes the Help to Buy Extension. The new scheme enables first time buyers to purchase a new build property up to the value of £349,000 (in the South West) with as little as a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage.

The positive news underlines Burrington Estates New Homes’ confidence in the housing market in the South West, where five developments are currently live, offering a range of new homes suitable for first time buyers, with a further six developments programmed to meet the demand of the housing market.

Managing Director, Colin Palmer says; “With our current live and upcoming new home developments, we are able to satisfy the growing demand for new homes across the South West. The extension of Help to Buy gives potential first time buyers the peace of mind that they too can benefit from the scheme over the coming years.”

Local housebuilder placed in top 3% of property developers across the country

Following a standout year of success, Exeter-based luxury house builder, Burrington Estates New Homes, has announced site manager at Trispen Meadows in Truro, Shaun Marsden, has been awarded the prestigious Seal of Excellence award by the National House Building Council (NHBC).

 

Awarded to only 450 site managers across the UK, the awards put Burrington Estates New Homes in the top 3% of house builders in the country. The National House Building Council recognises the industry’s best site managers across the UK and has been driving quality in house-building for 38 years.

At an exclusive event on Friday, Shaun and fellow site manager, Gary O’Gorman, who has been working on a luxury development in Plymouth, Notre Dame, were awarded the prestigious Pride in the Job awards. The Pride in the Job awards are one of the industry’s highest recognised accolades, given to a small handful of the 16,000 site managers across the country registered with NHBC.

 

The Seal of Excellence award marks the second time the house builder has received such a standard, following Site Manager Marinko Tomic’s success last year for his work at Seaward Park, Clyst St George in Exeter.

 

Shaun Marsden received the award following his exceptionally high standards of build at Trispen Meadows in Truro. The collection of 85 two, three and four bedroom homes have been well received in the region, offering high quality living with both country and coastal access.

Colin Palmer, Managing Director for Burrington Estates New Homes, said; ‘We are hugely proud of Shaun for his Seal of Excellence award and both Shaun and Gary for their Pride in the Job awards earlier this summer. Their dedication to high quality and exacting standards shines through on everything they work on. We are immensely proud of their achievements and thank the NHBC for their recognition.’

 

Shaun Marsden said; ‘To be recognised both a Pride in the Job and Seal Of Excellence award is incredible. As with all of our developments, myself and my team are absolutely committed to ensuring high quality in each and every one of our new homes at Trispen Meadows. I cannot thank the judges at the NHBC enough and the support I have received from Burrington Estates New Homes.’

£1.2m affordable homes scheme completed at high quality development in Cornwall

A new collection of 10 one, two and three bedroom affordable homes have been specially created at our development, Penrose View, Truro in a bid to tackle the current UK housing crisis.

We have worked  in partnership with a leading Cornish social housing provider, Ocean Housing. the homes have been completed and handed over to Ocean Housing, who have begun moving tenants in to a mix of rent and shared ownership homes.

With an average of 30% affordable homes on our developments, we are committed to providing affordable housing within the region and are currently developing further affordable homes at our nearby development, Trispen Meadows, in Trispen, Truro alongside our sites in Plymouth, Exeter and upcoming site in Dorset.

We are aiming to deliver more rural homes throughout the South West and are actively seeking suitable sites in local communities where there is a need for affordable housing.

Burrington Estates New Homes enjoys close working relationships with a number of social housing providers, including Liverty, formerly known as Devon and Cornwall Housing.

Penrose View is a collection of 28 new homes within the delightful village of Shortlanesend. With nearby access to Truro, popular seaside towns and the Cornish countryside, the new homes were hotly anticipated on the open market with the 18 new properties now fully sold out. Each of the homes, including the affordable properties, have been designed to be in keeping with the local surroundings and make use of local materials.

 

Work on the £1.2 million scheme began in September 2017 with the new affordable homes completed and handed over in August 2018. Taylor Lewis, a local property agent, have been working alongside Ocean Housing throughout the transfer of the new homes.

David Matthews, Development Director at Burrington Estates New Homes, said: “Developing affordable housing on our schemes is absolutely vital in order to meet the demand for new homes in the South West. There are so many different types of buyer to consider when creating a new housing development and Penrose View is no different. Penrose View is a great example of how we can provide well designed, quality affordable homes for local people. Working with Ocean Housing has been a brilliant experience and allows us to respond to a need for more affordable housing within the local area.”

The scheme, a combination of rent and shared ownership housing, has been officially handed over Ocean Housing – and its tenants have already started moving in to their new homes.

Tracey Daniels, resident at Penrose View, said:

“I am in love with my new home! I have lived in Shortlanesend for a while, previously in a much older estate which was looking a little tired. The new homes at Penrose View really do stand out for their design and quality, the overall feel it that of a small and quaint community. My son attends Richard Lander School so it’s in a great location for us too.”

Daniel Fisher, Site Manager at Penrose View, said:

“It’s been a real pleasure working on the new homes at Penrose View, both the private and affordable units. It’s so important to consider all types of homeowner when building our developments and that’s why we have created a range of affordable house types. The one bedroom homes are ideal for young couples and the larger three bedroom homes are great for growing families.”

Ocean’s chief executive, Mark Gardner, said the Penrose View scheme demonstrated a joint commitment to addressing Cornwall’s housing shortage.

“We’re very pleased to be working with Burrington Estates to provide much-needed affordable homes for local people,” said Mr Gardner. “I look forward to developing a strong relationship with Burrington Estates so that we can provide many more new homes together in the future. The most important thing is that our new residents are absolutely delighted with their new homes.”
