With its unrivalled location and luxury interiors, Fistral House will set a new standard for contemporary coastal living. Located near Newquay, Fistral House comprises 10 luxury apartments and has been brought to the market by Legacy Properties.
The scheme, which replaces a former nursing home, began on site in June 2016 and is currently in its final stages ahead of completion in September 2017. Ahead of this finish date the Legacy Properties team were given a boost when the scheme was recognised with a NHBC Pride in the Job Award. Speaking about the award win and Fistral House as a whole, Legacy Properties Managing Director Nick Long said:
“Fistral House is a project of ten apartments, split between 8 two-beds and 2 three-bed penthouses. It’s an amazing coastline position with views across Fistral beach and out to sea. We’re set up so we act from acquisition all the way through to sales and we keep everything in-house from planning through to construction.
“With this particular scheme we wanted to set the bar for apartments in Newquay in terms of specification, finish and the overall look. We also wanted to create something that was a bit more bespoke so we gave clients a choice of materials to make the apartments more personal.”
While the location adds much to the project, it also proved to be one of the more challenging aspects of the build. The site was very exposed and like the rest of the area construction during the winter requires a large amount of patience and perseverance. The structure is a masonry build with concrete floors which required a lot of crane work which also proved difficult in high winds. The NHBC Award is a reflection of both the planning that went into Fistral House and its efficient construction. Nick added:
“The award is obviously given to the site manager, Matt, but it is recognition for the whole team and all their hard work on the project. We were planning the job for a year before we got to site and it’s great to be recognised for the quality of our work.
“Every scheme we complete is professionally photographed internally and externally and we’re going to keep one of these apartments as a showpiece of what we do. We can take clients down there and give them an understanding of what we’re about and how we offer something different from other developers.”
