Acorn Blue set to start work on site in Duporth

Acorn Property Group’s Devon & Cornwall office, Acorn Blue and Somerston Healthcare Properties Limited have completed on the purchase and been granted planning permission to build thirty-eight new homes on a former holiday park site in Duporth, Cornwall.

The Courtyard at Duporth is an Acorn-led development which will feature the conversion and refurbishment of existing stone buildings and carefully designed new build properties which will provide a bespoke collection of two and three-bedroom houses and apartments. The focal point of the development will be a Grade II listed clock tower which will undergo major refurbishment works and is set within a traditional stone communal courtyard.

The development also benefits from access to a private woodland and a private beach overlooking St Austell Bay.

Works will start immediately and the first homes are scheduled to be ready for occupation in 2019.

Exclusively for over-55s, Acorn’s new Lifetime Living collection offers a range of bespoke houses carefully designed not only for their immediate occupiers but with the possibility of future adaptations in mind.

Stuart Brereton, Joint Regional Managing Director for Acorn’s Devon and Cornwall office Acorn Blue, commented:

“We are delighted to have achieved planning for this unique scheme and are excited to be delivering our first Lifetime Living Development.

“Acorn is a leading urban and rural regeneration specialist and this scheme and our expertise will give a new lease of life to this historic site. Our immediate priority will be to stabilise and renovate the existing listed clock tower before starting work on the development.”
