Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson:

“Cambridge has become a hotspot for Chinese property buyers over the past few years, largely thanks to the exceptional education facilities in the city and its status as a leading science, technology and pharmaceuticals hub. 

“These factors, alongside the cultural pursuits Cambridge offers and the beautiful English countryside on its doorstep, has led to us experiencing a high level of demand for homes at our Halo development. Halo’s location on the sought-after Long Road, means it is in walking distance to a number of highly rated schools including the Perse School, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, in addition to local amenities on the wider Great Kneighton area. Chinese buyers have been drawn to Halo’s contemporary style, which offers luxury interior finishes that are easy to maintain and allow buyers to move in straight away. 

“Moving house can be stressful, particularly when you’re relocating overseas, so we offer a support network for international buyers. This service provides support throughout the buying process that doesn’t stop once residents have moved in. During the purchase process, our sales team is on hand to ensure the process is as smooth as possible, and we also offer a Concierge service with luxury lifestyle management company Quintessentially. The dedicated Lifestyle Manager can support families with translation services, childcare provisions and recommendations on local schools to make sure residents settle in as soon as possible.”
