Making Cornwall home
Unveiling the stunning homes of Burrington Estates’ latest Cornish development, Maer View.
When people think of Cornwall, particularly as a tourist destination, many might picture their favourite beach, or a specific beauty spot in which they captured a perfect picture, or where one of life’s many milestones took place. For the Cornish, though, the beautiful, rugged and charming landscape runs deep in the blood. It is home, in every sense of the word. Paying tribute to this is Burrington Estates, who intend to do so by building a new collection of 21 luxury homes in the heart of Cornwall’s northernmost town.
Maer View, Burrington’s latest venture in the Duchy, takes its name from Maer Lake, a site protected by Cornwall Wildlife Trust. As an established ornithological site, the reserve is a wetland meadow with open water features, home to grazing animals and wildfowl. The homes at Maer View have been named to pay homage to the variety of rare birds that frequent the lake each year, and throughout the build process, Burrington has done everything possible to minimise disturbance to the site.
Ensuring that the development retains Burrington Estates’ reputation for excellence moving forward into a cleaner, more environmentally friendly future for our planet, the collection of homes benefit from sustainable technology, promoting a greener lifestyle and paving the way for future generations. Air source heat pumps feature in every property, providing underfloor heating, while bee bricks provide a safe haven for pollinators. There is also the option for PV solar panels and electric car charging points to be added to each home.
“As a forward-thinking developer, we have always looked to deliver developments that are built for the future and have as little impact on the local environment as possible,” says Mark Edworthy, Burrington Estates Founder. “Homebuyers have been moving to Cornwall and the wider south west in record numbers in recent years, not least for the area’s outstanding beauty and variety of natural scenery. We take our responsibility to protect that natural environment very seriously whilst delivering much-needed high-quality housing to the local area. At Maer View, we are continuing this approach and are delighted to have started on site to deliver an incredible collection of new homes on the north Cornwall coast.”
Burrington Estates’ name has become synonymous with Cornwall, with enchanting developments in idyllic locations such as Truro, Fowey and Illogan, proving that the developer’s assurance of delivering luxurious, executive homes is at the forefront of its commitment to Cornish life.
Once a bustling harbour town, Bude is now famed for its reinvention into a prominent holiday destination. The notoriety of its craggy coast comes at the cost of numerous ships that lie in wreck on the jagged reefs that fringe the base of the cliffs. Popular as a destination for many lifestyle activities, the town is primarily known for its assortment of outdoor leisure pursuits, like surfing. Local beaches include Crooklets and Summerleaze, the latter of which is home to the iconic ‘Pepper Pot’ – built in 1835 as a refuge for the coastguard. Bude Sea Pool, meanwhile, provides a haven in the form of a tidal lido, built into the very same beach as the Pepper Pot and a fine example of the town’s renovated coastal features.
Within walking distance of the town is the beautiful Maer Lake, while Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club is situated in the centre of town, providing 18 holes of enjoyable, challenging golf along a course that is rarely unplayable due to its natural, all-weather fairways and greens. The development itself is just 22 miles distant from Bideford, and only 51 from Exeter, ensuring a luxurious city break is never far away. However, you’d be forgiven for never wanting to leave the charming surrounds of Maer View, especially with the collection of superb shops, restaurants, schools and scenery that Bude has to offer.
With a stunning new show home now open and showcasing the incredible new specification that Maer View brings to the table, visitors will be wowed by its incredible interiors, which have been carefully curated by the developer’s own exclusive interior design team.
