Our award winning development goes Beyond Zero


Lyonesse Lane, our development of eight luxury Zero Carbon Smart Homes™ in Rock, really is the gift that keeps on giving!

We are so pleased to have won yet another award for this development. We’d like to thank Titan Property Awards for the accolade of UK Sustainable Residential Development of the Year.

This follows the International Property Awards recent crowning of Lyonesse Lane as the Best Sustainable Residential Development in Cornwall.

What’s more – Lyonesse Lane has just been shortlisted for Boutique Development of the Year at International Property Awardss South West Residential Property Awards!

Built on a redundant brownfield site in the heart of Rock, Cornwall, Lyonesse Lane is home to eight of Verto’s flagship Energy Plus, Zero Carbon Smart Homes™.

All of these highly sustainable homes benefit from a plethora of renewable technologies and accumulated advanced detailing which results in some of the highest performing properties on the market today. The annual energy (and carbon emissions) demand as assessed by SAP show negative requirements per square metre throughout the development.

This is made all the more impressive when the development as a whole is considered which is a 50% mix of affordable housing and open market properties, all of which are built to the same high standards regardless of tenure/sales type.

The Affordable properties were delivered as discounted open market units with a restriction to sell them to those with a local connection to the parish, enabling local people to access an otherwise inaccessible property ladder in the area. As such, Verto ensured that they were able to enjoy all of the same advantages of a Verto home without compromise.
