Mylor Gardens latest.

Rightsizing to the Cornish coast.

Mylor Gardens residents, Michael and Marie Farey, had lived in Lerryn, Cornwall, since they retired from Essex 21 years ago. In 2016, the couple began looking for a new build property to ‘rightsize’ from their high maintenance 200-year old cottage and acre of garden.

Michael explains: “Our children live in the Midlands so, initially, we planned to move up country to make visiting easier, but every new build development we viewed was cramped with no privacy.

We visited Blue Cedar Homes sites and were impressed with the quality of the houses and layouts of the developments, but we didn’t find the perfect property for us. Then we saw an advert for the launch event at Mylor Gardens, near Falmouth, and decided to pop along – with no intention of buying a house. In fact, we made a pact before we set off! But when we were handed the brochure the site looked great and we spotted a plot with a generous garden in a lovely position. Since we already liked the Blue Cedar Homes concept, we put our deposit down there and then and never looked back.

We didn’t set out to find a ‘retirement’ property because the majority are leasehold but the fact that our house is freehold and doesn’t carry any event fees drew us to Blue Cedar Homes. Throughout the purchase, the communication from Blue Cedar Homes was brilliant and our Customer Relationship Manager has been wonderful. Even with only two weeks between exchanging contracts and moving in, Blue Cedar Homes arranged for additional finishing touches to be ready in time.

The peace and quiet of Mylor Gardens is great and we love the individual touches that make each house unique. Our Estate Manager, David, couldn’t be more helpful and I’m so pleased I no longer have to wake up each morning wondering if it will be dry enough to mow the grass. Our first 21 years of retirement in Cornwall have been fantastic and we now look forward to the future being just as enjoyable.”

Plots are available now at Mylor Gardens. To find out more and arrange a viewing, contact Humberts on 01872 278288.
