The houses, set within Heartlands, the impressive £35 million Cornwall Council-led development to turn derelict mine land at Robinson’s Shaft in Pool into a 19 acre community space and visitor attraction will include one and two-bed apartments. The first seven apartments which have been released to the market with local estate agents, Stratton Creber and Miller Countrywide are priced between £99,950 and £119,950.
The contemporary, state-of-the-art apartments are one of the defining elements of the new Heartlands community and will promote environmental sustainability through carbon neutral electricity, hot water and heating, as well as sustainable waste management.
Cllr Carolyn Rule, Chair of the Executive Board said: “Can you imagine how fantastic it will be to actually live at Heartlands? This is such a wonderful space, designed to bring living, working and recreation together - creating a new heart for the community and for Cornwall.
“The opportunity to purchase a contemporary property at the very centre of this important historical site is one which comes along once in a lifetime. I expect these apartments to be highly sought after and snapped up very quickly indeed!”
Ideal for couples, artists renting studio space and young families, the apartments are built to go beyond current building regulations, meeting Code for Sustainable Homes 4 and BREEAM Excellent levels of design and construction.
The apartments are within easy reach of the new Heartlands park, adventure playground and gardens. The historic core of the development on the western side of the site provides a restaurant, free to enter World Heritage Site gateway exhibition and market square. Local shops, Cornwall College and the Pool Innovation Centre are all within walking and cycling distance to Heartlands.
The apartments are offered for sale on a long-leasehold basis and a residents’ and users’ group will meet with Heartlands Trust staff on a regular basis to ensure smooth running of the development.
