Well located building plots and renovation projects near the Cornish coast have historically been in high demand and short supply - but now two opportunities have come on the market.
Josephine Ashby of John Bray Estates says: “We’ve seen demand steadily returning during the course of 2023 for well-priced ventures; the building dream hasn’t gone away, and the advantages are extensive. Buyers can factor in their own practical requirements, build in environmental elements from the get-go, and bring their own aesthetic vision at an early stage.
“There is a growing awareness of environmental sustainability, prompting owners to opt for energy-efficient renovations and building practices. Cornwall’s environmental beauty and eco-conscious community have amplified this trend. Various grant incentives are available to homeowners in Cornwall that encourage them to undertake renovation projects that focus on energy efficiency and historical preservation.
“While the price of building materials has fallen, and tradespeople are more available, it’s important for buyers to carefully consider their renovation goals and budget before embarking on a project.”
John Bray Estates is currently selling a selection of properties suitable for buyers looking for a new year project.
