PROPERTIES at a £16 million five-star resort in St Ives have now gone on sale.
Work started at the 20-acre Una site in Carbis Bay, in 2012.
Newquay-based CC Leisure Ltd is behind the development, at the former Trevarrack Holiday Park, for client Frogmore.
The first phase of construction of the 123 lodge-style holiday homes is due to be completed in August.
And the homes are now available to buy 'off plan' – effectively buying the property before it is even built – with the developers offering them as an investment.
There are one, two, three and four-bedroom properties at the site, with starting prices ranging from £160,000 to £450,000.
Una St Ives sales director Sean Hodgson said: "The UK holiday market has doubled in recent years, fuelled substantially by property buyers seeking to acquire a buy-to-let investment they can also enjoy themselves.
"We are offering people a chance to have their own slice of a Cornish community, combined with a sound investment and the security of an experienced property management team."
The site will include its own delicatessen, restaurant and a spa with a 15m pool.
When complete, the site will have an on-site management team and offer property investors a letting programme for year-round, self-catering occupation.
When fully open, the site will create 50 jobs, according to the developers.
Una St Ives – branding itself an 'eco-retreat' is planning a number of green innovations.
The retreat will be a 'plastic bag-free zone' and residents will be encouraged to use branded jute shopping bags when shopping in St Ives.
They will also be invited to use local transport links or walk or cycle to the resort.
