Construction Starts In Altarnun

New homes are coming to Cornwall as construction starts in Altarnun

20 December 2022

West Country housebuilder Devonshire Homes is one step closer to bringing much-needed new homes to the village of Five Lanes, Altarnun as construction starts on a collection of new build homes.

The development, named Five Lanes Close, is Devonshire Homes’ third Cornwall site and will bring an exclusive collection of 12 high-quality new build homes to the village which is located on the northern edges of Bodmin Moor.

House hunters will be able to choose from one, two, three and four bedroom homes and will benefit from easy-access to the A30 in addition to local amenities including a 12th Century church, pub, village shop and Post Office.

Each home will be built to Devonshire Homes’ high-quality standard, offering a stylish, practical, and modern living space with carefully designed exteriors that remain sympathetic to the local environment.

With construction now underway, homes at Five Lanes Close will be ready to reserve in spring 2023 with the first completions coming through in late summer 2023.

Under the S106 agreement, Devonshire Homes will contribute to the local community with a £15,135 off site public open space contribution and a £16,416 contribution towards local education.

Angus Cook, Managing Director at Devonshire Homes, commented:

“We’re pleased to confirm that construction work is now underway at our third Cornwall site, Five Lanes Close. House hunters will benefit from living in a beautiful, rural location within a thriving village community whilst making memories in a high-quality, new build home. Five Lanes Close is a collection of just 12 properties so this site is ideal for those looking to live in a small community.
“We’re excited to be back building in Cornwall. Our last development in the region which is still active, Gwallon Keas in St. Austell, has been extremely popular with house hunters and we are very hopeful that Five Lanes Close will experience the same success. I encourage those interested in the properties to register their interest via our website to be the first to know when these homes will be ready to reserve.”

Five Lanes Close, located within the parish of Alternun, is close to the A30 ensuring excellent commuter links to Truro and South Cornwall as well as Exeter and other major Devon towns. Altarnun offers a village shop and pub with Launceston under nine miles away where a Tesco superstore, leisure centre and other amenities are available. For families, Altarnun has a primary school rated Good by Ofsted and Launceston College is the nearest higher education facility.
