With the latest Property Activity Index listing Cambridge as one of the best UK regional performers for property listings and sales*, it’s clear to see why Crest Nicholson has responded to the demand by launching its new phase of development in Cambridge. For prospective purchasers looking to invest in property at the heart of this historic university city, a brand new show apartment is now open for viewing in the Cyan Building.
Since its launch in 2008, Kaleidoscope has been a popular choice with investors, and the award-winning developer has noticed a change in the pattern of investors buying at the central Cambridge development over the years.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern said: “Cambridge draws some of the world’s finest students to its university, and with them comes foreign investment. Parents with children at the university are keen to invest in a property within the historic city. Thanks to Kaleidoscope’s central location and close proximity to the university colleges, train station, Addenbrookes Hospital and the Biomedical Park, the development has seen an influx of UK and overseas investors as well as owner-occupiers since its launch.
“Demand at Kaleidoscope has always been strong and with the launch of the Cyan Building, potential buyers have a greater choice in the property they purchase. Homes range from £240,000 for a one-bedroom apartment up to £550,000 for the larger two-bedroom duplexes and penthouses which offer fantastic views of the historic city.”
The Cyan Building comprises 63 one and two-bedroom apartments, penthouses and duplexes and will be ready to move into this 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 windows and doors which open onto private balconies and 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 with Bosch appliances and bathrooms with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and Hansgrohe brassware.
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.
