Work has begun on a unique waterside site in Plymouth for a stylish housing development thanks to funding from Bricks Finance.

Boston Quays – situated in the pretty waterside village of Oreston – looks set to be one of the last remaining waterfront sites in and around the ocean city to be developed for housing. Offering views over Cattewater and Plymouth beyond, the development is constructed on former shipyard land now owned by J Boston & Sons.

The development is managed by Bruce McMahon whose previous projects included accommodation for Exeter University, Mount Wise in Plymouth, the Welsh National Velodrome, Black Rock Sands in Widemouth Bay and Scarletts Well in Bodmin.

Work will start shortly on the three-acre site to develop 15 waterside homes, two four-bedroom detached houses and a selection of semi-detached and terraced townhouses.

With selling agent James Clarke of Lang, Town & Country already reporting interested buyers placing deposits, this luxury development is looking certain to be popular with city residents. James said: “It must be one of the last remaining waterside sites in Plymouth available to build homes and it offers a rare opportunity to live in such a fabulous location.”

The specification of the new development – featuring private pontoon moorings and the option of home offices to take account of post-pandemic lifestyle needs – means they offer a unique set of facilities for buyers.

J Boston & Sons was introduced to Bricks Finance by David Brown of Funding South West. David explained: “Bricks Finance is so easy to deal with. I like working with partners based here in the South West because they know the area, local economy and have a genuine interest in your project. They don’t just lend the money and walk away; they get involved and take an interest in the project all the way to completion.”

For Clive Banks of Bricks, being able to back Boston Quays was a delight: “This is a great landmark and significant project for Bricks to support. I sail from Plymouth and I know this will be a stunning addition to the waterside. We could see that it was a fantastic opportunity from the minute the project was presented to us.”
