A rich tapestry of historical stories intermingled with modern day drama

Charlestown is as picturesque as it gets and wherever you are in this World Heritage Site, it packs a pretty punch. Textural and layered, yet quiet and calming, its industrial features are comfortable bedfellows with its dramatic, natural setting.

Conceived in 1792 as a seaport for the copper, clay and pilchard fishing industries, today's Charlestown features arresting Tall Ships, candy coloured fishermen's cottages and time-worn cobblestones. It's this enigmatic aesthetic that has attracted countless film and TV location scouts, meaning you're just as likely to glimpse movie stars taking a break, as you are to see salty local fisherman reeling in their daily catch.

Beyond the harbour lies a sheltered beach, ready-made for wild swimming. A short wander in either direction immediately immerses one in the lush countryside that borders the cove-sprinkled South East Cornish coast.

Charlestown's countless charms have drawn-in passionate entrepreneurs who have carved out trendy restaurants, wine-bars, delis and coffee shops. The resultant cultural and foodie vibe creates the perfect destination for 21st Century boutique harbour living.

Now The Nest, provides a subtle nod to the 'Crow's Nests' atop the Charlestown Tall Ships whilst delivering a new contemporary Cornish design-driven lifestyle opportunity.


Modern day living within a World Heritage Site

The Nest is 'snuggled' within Charlestown's natural valley, part of the UNESCO-listed Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and local Conservation Area.
Originally developed in the early 20th Century the site was known as Lovering's Clay Dry, part of the vital the china clay industry. Although almost all of the initial buildings have deteriorated, The Nest development will preserve the iconic chimney.
Constructed of classic stone and brick, like the church spire, the formation forms a key landmark within Charlestown and will be a stunning, historical centrepiece for all residents at The Nest.

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 synthesise in Charlestown

And Stephens + Stephens' design-driven approach 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.

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 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.
