Cornwall Living

Without compromise

Acorn Property Group, one of the region’s leading housebuilders, continues to grow their presence on the coast with the success of Acorn Blue.

Following the same design-led ethos applied to its developments throughout the south west of England and south Wales, Acorn Blue actively supports the rediscovery of some of the country’s favourite beachside resorts through outstanding new architecture and sensitive conversions. Their properties are offered without compromise, designed to bring the very best in contemporary living to some of the county’s most beautiful shores. 

The Courtyard at Duporth

Situated above a secluded beach overlooking St Austell Bay and near the picturesque village of Charlestown, The Courtyard at Duporth is a unique collection of 38, two and three-bedroom homes. Formerly the Rashleigh Estate and Manor, you’ll find Duporth on the Cornish coast, south of St Austell. In the 1930s Duporth was opened to the public as a popular seaside holiday resort and apart from a few years in the Second World War – when it was requisitioned by the War Office – it continued to entertain and charm visitors, with its peaceful secluded coastal surroundings, until the end of the century. 

Centred around a landscaped courtyard and a Grade II listed clock tower, The Courtyard has been designed and built exclusively for those over 55. Perfect for those seeking to embrace their golden years, the collection of properties offers a safe, secure and comfortable place where you can feel at home. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy the finer things in life with those who matter to you most. 

All apartments and houses have been designed to balance comfort, privacy and light, whilst embracing the glorious ocean vista. 

The Padstow Collection

Situated in a prime location in central Padstow, just a short walk from the harbour, The Padstow Collection is an exclusive development of just ten two and three bedroom homes with views over the Camel Estuary. Spread across three buildings, each home will be finished to a luxurious specification and benefits from allocated parking, high-performance triple glazing, low-energy light fittings, as well as prewiring for EV charging and a ground source heat pump, which will heat the homes and water efficiently and sustainably, by not relying on fossil fuels.

The popularity of Padstow has exploded over the last few years and it has established itself as a premier UK holiday hotspot. Its success is down to its inherent charm as well as being an illustrious foodie destination. The collection is only a few minutes away from some of the most incredible restaurants brought to you by world renowned chefs.

If you’re feeling adventurous then the Camel Trail, Cornwall’s most well-known recreational trail is nearby – popular with cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users, it gives access to the spectacular Cornish countryside. And close by are the beautiful beaches of Constantine Bay, Trevone Bay and Hawkers Cove, and other day trip opportunities.

Treglos at Constantine Bay

This stunning development lies less than a ten-minute walk from Constantine Bay beach, near Padstow. Known as one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall, the beach here lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With pale sweeping sands and rolling waves, it’s one of the famed ‘Seven Bays for Seven Days’, which combine to open up a world of discovery for those who like to lace up their boots and explore. 

Starting at £725,000, Treglos comprises 20 contemporary apartments, duplexes and penthouses, along with eight three and four-bedroom houses with glorious sea views. Suiting a range of different buyers in search of their own slice of seaside luxury, open-plan living is very much at the heart of these new homes, all of which are designed with life by the coast in mind. They are designed to be lived in – to stand up to the rigours of a life spent exploring the local coastline – at the same time delivering a true feeling of contemporary comfort, the kind owners have come to expect from Acorn’s stable of luxury property.

They also incorporate a host of sustainable features that promise to reduce carbon footprint and increase energy efficiency, including enhanced U-values and air-tightness, and ground source heat pumps which heat the homes and water efficiently and sustainably. Add to this high performance, triple-glazed windows, reinforced concrete in the construction which will act as a heat sink in the colder months – slowly emitting absorbed heat during the evening to reduce the demand for heating – plus pre-wiring for electric vehicle chargers, and what you have at Treglos are homes that are very much designed with the future in mind.
