If you plan to spend your retirement sailing, then these new homes being built at the Cornish waterside village of Mylor Bridge could be for you!

Work has started on nine new retirement homes aimed at those who have a passion for yachting and boat racing

Located in the Cornish village of Mylor Bridge, near Falmouth, the development by Blue Cedar Homes will see nine detached properties built around landscaped gardens and a communal summer house.

Each of the houses in Mylor Gardens will include features such as underfloor heating, granite worktops and solid oak doors.

A locally employed visiting estate manager will look after communal areas and provide general maintenance across the development.

Sat at the end of Mylor Creek, Mylor Bridge is a popular destination for yachting and boat racing, with many residents mooring boats on the shore of the creek.

Mylor Yacht Harbour, with its full-service boatyard, sits just over a mile from the village and is close to Mylor’s Yacht Club which boasts a calendar full of races and social events.

The managing director at Blue Cedar Homes, Nick Hole, commented: “Part of our company ethos is to pick locations for our developments which are naturally desirable to live in.”

“Cornwall is well known for being an idyllic holiday destination and equally a fantastic place to enjoy retirement and we are keen to offer more homes in this beautiful part of the country,” he continued.

“Mylor Bridge in particular is well positioned to enjoy both the coast and countryside and with the development being close to the village centre, homeowners will be able to enjoy village life as well as all that nearby Falmouth has to offer,” added the managing director.

Named one of Britain’s best villages by the Sunday Times, Mylor Bridge has many local stores including a Post Office, grocery store, fishmonger, baker and butcher.

The area also benefits from a range of leisure activities, including the local cricket and yacht clubs and a selection of award winning pubs.

It is just four miles from the famous harbour town of Falmouth, including Carrick Roads, which offers a thriving art and culture scene, a host of award winning bars and restaurants and numerous stunning beaches, including Gyllyngvase Beach.

The city of Truro with all major high street brands, restaurants and a theatre is only a eight miles away.

Homes at Mylor Gardens are due for completion in Spring 2017.
