Regional developer Wainhomes says now is a better time than ever to move to the coast – after a new study has revealed that living by the seaside can greatly improve your mental health.
The recent report from Exeter University, which is located just seven miles from Wainhomes’ Head Office for the south west, suggests that those living within five kilometres of ‘blue spaces’ experienced fewer mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
Now, Wainhomes is urging home hunters in Cornwall to pick up their buckets and spades and head towards its Swanvale development in the popular town of Falmouth – located just a 15 minute walk away from Swanpool beach.
“Swanvale offers a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes, and is ideal for those wishing to escape to the coast and reap the benefits that come from seaside living,” said Wainhomes’ Head of Sales Katie Alderton.
“From the sea air having higher levels of oxygen which can help you sleep better, to the sound of waves creating a sense of calm – it’s no secret that being by the sea greatly improves your mental wellbeing.”
Set within the Cornish yachting capital of Falmouth, Swanvale sits comfortably near the bustling town’s picturesque natural harbour and benefits from its close proximity to Penmere station and the A30 and A349 – with buyers finding that they can enjoy the slow-paced lifestyle while still being able to commute to work.
Katie added: “Swanvale is one of Wainhomes’ longest ongoing developments and is being designed with the modern family at heart,” Katie added.
“Being so close to the sea provides an abundance of opportunity to get outside and keep active with the family, from swimming in the sea to taking leisurely strolls along the coastline – just try not to get too tempted by a portion of delicious fish and chips along the way!”
The Help to Buy scheme is also available on all properties at this fantastic new development.
The Government backed scheme gives buyers the opportunity to purchase a brand-new home with just a five percent deposit of the property value. In addition to this, the scheme provides a guarantee of up to 15 percent, which gives lenders the ability to offer a higher loan-to-value mortgage to potential homeowners.
