Crest Nicholson Adds a Splash of Colour to Kaleidoscope, Cambridge with the Launch of the Aqua Building

Award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson has launched the latest phase of homes at its iconic Cambridge development, Kaleidoscope. Homes in the Aqua Building comprise an attractive, exclusive collection of just 16 highly contemporary two-bedroom apartments which offer high quality and a high specification in the city centre.

Each stylish property has been expertly designed and built to the highest standards. Versatile, open plan interiors have been designed to maximise living space whilst ensuring a spacious kitchen area with plenty of cupboards and work space. These newly built properties offer many benefits over second-hand homes; with no repair costs and no need to re-decorate, purchasers may move in and immediately enjoy their stylish, contemporary and energy efficient home.

Toby Greenhow, Director of Residential Development Sales for Savills Estate Agents said: “It is very good news for Cambridge’s property market that a new phase at Kaleidoscope is launching. The market here has remained robust throughout the economic downturn with sustained high demand for homes; unlike other cities, Cambridge did not experience the oversupply of new homes in the run up to the market’s peak in 2007 and therefore supply and demand has remained consistent.

“A key strength of Cambridge is the diverse range of residents it attracts and research puts Cambridge top of the list for cities with the highest proportion of high skilled employees. With the beautiful city centre, university, research and development operations based at the Science Park, as well as the significant expansion of the medical Campus at Addenbrookes plus the benefit of spectacular countryside nearby, Cambridge has much to offer buyers.”

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We hadn’t anticipated launching Aqua so soon after the Cyan Building which only came to market in May this year. Homes sold very quickly and so we have brought forward our building schedule in order to meet demand.

“We anticipate that the Aqua Building will continue the success story of Kaleidoscope. The high standard of homes coupled with the overall development design and convenient yet quiet location has proved a winning combination which has continued to attract a variety of buyers, from students and their parents, young professionals and young families to downsizers and investors. Purchasers recognise that buying in Cambridge represents a sound investment.”

The aspirational Kaleidoscope development sits in one of the most desirable areas of the city, within easy walking distance of Cambridge train station and the historic city centre, yet is tucked away in a quiet and secluded area off Brooklands Avenue.

Kaleidoscope has been cleverly master-planned to create a lively community. Designed by award-winning architects Proctor and Matthews, whose other work includes the Greenwich Millennium Village, the development incorporates traditional, locally sourced materials with the architecture imaginatively using feature panels in a variety of colours. Combining a sleek, modern exterior with a classic and stylish interior, the apartment building sits within a series of courtyards which boast a tree lined avenue and an attractive water feature.

Cambridge benefits from excellent travel links; Cambridge railway station is just five minutes from the scheme and provides a non-stop service to London Kings Cross in just 45 minutes. Alternatively, the M11 is just six miles away providing a swift route to Stansted Airport and the motorway network beyond.
