Award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson has unveiled to the public its brand new development, Alconbury Weald, near Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. Doors have opened for prospective purchasers to view the luxurious three bedroom show house and marketing suite, offering insight into the carefully crafted homes and the high specification found throughout.
The development will comprise 192 properties, forming part of the 5,000 new homes being delivered in the wider redevelopment of RAF Alconbury. This will include one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses, ideal for a range of purchasers, from first time buyers, to second steppers and downsizers. Residents are due to be welcomed into their new homes from March this year.
The three bedroom Hartley show home is a modern semi-detached home, featuring a sociable open plan kitchen and dining room, ideal for entertaining guests. To the rear of the property is a spacious separate living room, with French doors opening onto the garden, perfect for the summer months. The first floor is host to a generously sized master bedroom, with ensuite and dressing area, as well as a further double and single bedroom. This floor also features a sleek family bathroom.
The contemporary homes have been thoughtfully designed to reflect the character of the natural surrounds, with many overlooking the newly launched cricket pitch and linked to nearby cycle and walking pathways. Internally, each property features spacious layouts, ideal for modern lifestyles, with many houses boasting parking spaces for two cars, in addition to a garage.
David Hnyda, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Chiltern, commented: “We are delighted to have officially unveiled the marketing suite and show home at Alconbury Weald, giving prospective buyers the opportunity to get a feel for the contemporary design and high specification throughout our properties.
“Whether you are a first-time buyer keen to step onto the property ladder, a family looking for additional space, or a downsizer seeking lock up and leave, apartment living, we have homes to suit a range of purchasers. We also offer a selection of schemes including the Help to Buy scheme, meaning purchasers can get on the ladder with just a five percent deposit, and Part Exchange which is ideal for purchasers that already have a home to sell.
“Interest has been high following our launch last weekend, so we recommend potential purchasers book a viewing with our sales team as soon as possible, to avoid missing out on their plot of choice.”
