A new Nansledan resident was thrilled to receive the keys to her new property from none other than HRH The Duke of Cornwall.
Marguerite St John was the 150th person to move into one of the new houses built at Nansledan, the Duchy of Cornwall’s extension to the seaside town of Newquay.
Marguerite’s occupation of her new property coincided with a visit to Nansledan by His Royal Highness.
Marguerite said: “It was a great experience to meet His Royal Highness. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet him and one I very much enjoyed.”
Marguerite is pleased with the house, praising its high standards and good use of space. It was built by CG Fry & Son, one of the consortium of South West building companies who are building Nansledan, the others being Wainhomes and Morrish Builders.
A real advocate of Duchy of Cornwall developments, Marguerite previously owned a CG Fry & Son-built property at Tregunnel Hill, another Duchy-led development in Newquay.
She added: “I had lived in a CG Fry property before so when I decided to downsize I wanted to retain all the best aspects of my original house.
“I’m really enjoying living in Nansledan. The development is stylish with different colours and styles of house. It will enhance Newquay, essentially creating a lovely village atmosphere with facilities for the community.”
Caroline Hill, Sales & Marketing Director at CG Fry, said: “We are delighted that Marguerite is so pleased with her new home and that His Royal Highness was able to present her the keys. Nansledan is proving very popular, especially with local buyers, it is really starting to feel like a vibrant place as new home owners move in alongside the new shops and offices.”
Nansledan is being built on Duchy-owned land to the east of Newquay and will eventually comprise around 4,000 homes mixed with retail, offices, workshops, green spaces and a range of community facilities.
Regional contractor Midas Construction recently began building work on a new 14-classroom school, Skol Nansledan, on 4.7 hectare site off Quintrell Road. It is due to open in September 2019 and will cater to around 420 children.
