THE LAST REMAINING 3 AND 4 BEDROOM HOUSES WITHIN A WORLD HERITAGE SITE
‘The Nest’ provides a subtle nod to the ‘Crow’s Nests’ atop the renowned Charlestown tall ships, whilst delivering a new contemporary Cornish design-driven lifestyle opportunity. Snuggled within Charlestown’s natural valley, it sits in the UNESCO-listed Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and local conservation area. As property developers, we believe that it is our responsibility to continue to push boundaries whilst remaining true to our traditional values. A challenge? Certainly, but we believe we’ve done it here.
Inspired by the surrounding Landscape
Designed by renowned, multi-award-winning Charlestown-based architects, Alan Leather Associates, The Nest is completely in tune with their vision of creating architecture that has meaning, depth, and texture.
The Alan Leather Associates team takes inspiration from the surrounding landscape and places great importance on the quality of detail and appropriate use of materials and environment. Each of their projects is developed as a unique response to its occupants, location, and constraints; The Nest displays the very essence of this work, in the heart of their local neighbourhood.
The Nest will be accessed by a private road and is surrounded by a beautiful, traditional stone wall on three sides, with large evergreen and deciduous trees forming a dense, natural screen between the neighbouring properties.
THE HISTORICAL AND THE CONTEMPORARY PERFECTLY SYNTHESISES IN CHARLESTOWN
Stephens + Stephens’ design-driven approach to every new development ensures that the same result is experienced within each of the homes at The Nest.
The overarching design philosophy provides a cutting-edge style for today, concurrently paying appropriate homage to the original, industrial aesthetic of the area, rather than a ‘pastiche’ of the original properties. With so many new build developments being commissioned these days, we like to think that our unique approach is a refreshing reminder of what can be achieved with the right minds involved.
The Nest’s houses feature an architectural scheme utilising elemental materials including Cornish stone, fittingly bound with traditional pointing techniques. These historical flourishes are interspersed with huge sections of contemporary glass windows and glazed links, all merging with dark steels and zinc cladding, providing sleek, seamless finishes.
The homes are topped with living grass roofs and outside, ‘rubble’ stone walkways lead the way into calming, sustainable gardens.
ABSOLUTELY TURNKEY DESIGNER INTERIORS
Multi-award winners Absolute are the Stephens + Stephens partners of choice, crafting unique interior design for each and every development and each and every home.
For The Nest, the team has been inspired by the industrial heritage of the surrounding area, rather than directed by it. As with the architecture, a clean, contemporary interiors style is mixed with industrial hardware and surfaces, with on-trend muted colour palettes reflecting the landscape and elements.
Elemental, organic shapes are reflected in the curves of the furniture, lighting, artwork and accessories and natural, sustainable, hard-wearing, yet luxurious, fabrics are utilised throughout, providing a nod towards both the environment and the classic history of the compelling surroundings.
The turnkey interiors design service from Absolute works hand-in-hand with the Stephens + Stephens Home concierge service, meaning you can quite literally walk right into your new home at The Nest with every single detail and appliance already in place.
