A tranquil haven tucked away on the edge of Mylor Bridge, this is a place where nature teems all around you. From the shimmering waters of Mylor Creek to the rolling fields and gentle coastline that make up one of Cornwall’s 12 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stroll 20 minutes downriver to the historic marina at Mylor Churchtown, or sit in your beautifully designed bungalow with a coffee in hand and gaze out into the trees that give Silva Gardens its name - silva is the Latin word for woodland.
With Verto’s unique Zero Carbon Smart Home specification you will wake up in a home which produces zero carbon emissions, enjoying the freedom that comes from knowing the energy flowing through your home is created sustainably and consumed efficiently.
Air source heat pumps quietly and efficiently absorb ambient heat from the outside air, and then effortlessly supplies the underfloor heating systems and hot water for your home. The mechanical ventilation system with in-built heat recovery ensures the heat being created in your home is used in your home, rather than escaping through an extractor fan or open window, as well as providing you with fresh air from the outside.
All of this is controlled by a simple and intuitive smart home system that controls every aspect of your energy usage and makes you home as efficient and comfortable as possible.
These are the homes of the future, built today.
The contemporary exterior is striking, yet sits harmoniously within its surroundings. Every property enjoys a private front and rear garden as well as use of the communal green at the heart of Silva Gardens. And with driveway parking and a well-proportioned garage at the side, there’s always space for you and your lifestyle.
Whatever your lifestyle, you can fit it seamlessly into this green and gorgeous corner of Cornwall. Rent a berth in Mylor Harbour for your boat, take long walks along the coast, or simply settle down with a cup of coffee to watch the birds in your private garden.
For lovers of walking, Silva Gardens is sheer heaven. Wander around the narrow village streets, or go a little further to Kennall Vale near Penryn to explore the old granite ruins in the nature reserve.
