Affordable and attractive homes for people of North Cornwall provided by Westward and Legacy partnership 

Regional housing association, Westward Housing Group, is completing 17 new affordable homes as part of a larger Legacy Homes development near Newquay.

The 17 lovely new affordable homes at Highfields in the village of Cubert provide a mix of 12 rented and 5 shared ownership homes in the shape of a range of flats, bungalows and houses meaning there is something to suit most people locally.

This attractively landscaped estate benefits from beautiful dry-stone style walls and panoramic countryside views.

The Cornish estate provides much needed homes in a mix of property sizes from one-bed flats to two-bed bungalows and two and three-bed houses. In addition, the range of tenure types provided affordable rent and part-rent part-buy options.

Westward’s Chief Executive, Barbara Shaw, said: “I am pleased that our mixed development of high quality flats and family homes, for both rent and shared ownership, provides a range of options to meet high local and affordable housing need in this part of North Cornwall.”

So far nine delighted residents have moved into their brand new Cubert homes in time for the New Year. The homes were very desirable as Legacy are attentive to detail and ensure design-led architecture comes to the fore to create great living spaces for modern family life.

Four shared ownership and three affordable rental homes remain due for handover. So local people can apply through Cornwall Homechoice, or for prospective home owners via the Westward website Unusually there is a large 4/5 bedroom home available to let on the site. A local connection for Westward’s affordable homes applies at Cubert, so these homes can benefit local people.

Affordability is a major issue in this area and the average regional income was £18,277 in 2022 whilst the average house price in Cubert was £365,417. 48 people in Cubert had registered for a shared ownership property.

Legacy Homes Head of Sales & Marketing, Neil Simpkin, said, “Legacy Homes is delighted to be renewing its partnership with Westward at our latest developments in Cubert and Goonhavern, having previously created homes for local families at Crantock.

As a Cornish house builder, we’re proud to be providing new homes that are built to a very high standard and seamlessly create new communities alongside our open market homes. As a result of our ongoing partnership, we are supporting the Cornish economy with over 80% of our trades and businesses partners being Cornwall-based.”

This rural development is close to Newquay and Truro, offering convenient journeys to work, schools and shops, as well as a stunning outdoor environment with the south west coast path, Holywell Bay and Perranporth on the doorstep.
