Crest Nicholson Responds to Local Demand and Launches New Phase at Kaleidoscope, Cambridge

Following the news that the UK property market is showing green shoots in time for Spring with the number of buyers increasing for the first time in two years*, Crest Nicholson is responding to demand by launching a new phase at its Kaleidoscope development in Cambridge: The Cyan Building.

A selection of homes are available on the new Government-backed ‘NewBuy’ scheme which enables buyers to purchase a home with just 5% deposit, as opposed to the more usual 20%-25%**. Alternatively, buyers who reserve a home by the end of May will have their Stamp Duty fees paid by Crest Nicholson.

The Cyan Building will comprise of 63 one and two-bedroom apartments, penthouses and duplexes and will be ready to move into in the Autumn. All homes benefit from contemporary open-plan kitchen/living/dining rooms, creating a spacious living space. The selection of penthouses and duplexes feature floor to ceiling sliding doors onto private balconies, which flood the space with natural light.

The two-bedroom duplexes, which are arranged across two floors, also feature large terraces, ideal for barbeques and summer parties. Furthermore, some of the larger two-bedroom homes feature ensuite bathrooms. All homes feature plenty of storage space – a rarity in many new homes.

All apartments come with hard wood flooring throughout the living areas, kitchen and hallways, the bedrooms feature luxurious carpets whilst bathrooms and en-suites feature Amtico flooring. All homes benefit from underfloor heating as well as highly contemporary and stylish Commodore kitchens and bathrooms with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and Hansgrohe brassware.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We are delighted to be launching the much-anticipated Cyan building. Our previous phase, The Magenta Building, was extremely popular and homes sold swiftly, particularly given the economic climate of the past few years. Thanks to its location just off Brooklands Avenue which is very close to the town centre, is just a few minutes’ walk from the train station and University buildings and is in close proximity to Addenbrookes Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Park, Kaleidoscope has remained successful throughout the economic downturn and continued to sell well.

“Demand for homes at Kaleidoscope has always been strong and we are delighted to be offering potential buyers greater choice in the new phase. The new building offers homes across a range of prices, from £240,000 for a one-bedroom apartment up to £550,000 for the larger two-bedroom duplexes which boast fantastic views of the Cambridge skyline from six floors up.”

The development is dispersed across 11 architecturally unique apartment buildings and courtyards that are linked by a sequence of shared spaces, creating an integrated community setting. All apartments meet the high specification associated with Crest Nicholson and come with parking spaces available to purchase and a private landscaped area for residents to enjoy – both a rarity in a city location.
