Award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, will launch its brand new Alconbury Weald development near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, in January 2020. The development forms part of the 5,000 new homes being delivered in the wider redevelopment of RAF Alconbury and will comprise 192 properties, including one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses.


A preview event will take place on Saturday 11th January between 11am – 3pm, held from Crest Nicholson’s other nearby development, Mandeville Place in Brampton. The event will give purchasers the opportunity to secure their home of choice before the development is fully launched and take advantage of exclusive preview pricing.


With a range of apartments and houses to choose from, the homes at Alconbury Weald are suited to many potential purchasers, from first time buyers to second steppers and downsizers. The Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme is also available on a selection of properties, allowing home hunters to buy with just a 5% cash deposit. Under the scheme, the Government offers an interest free equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of the home, meaning that only a 75% mortgage is needed to make up the rest.


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. Purchasers will enjoy a high specification throughout, with each property featuring spacious interior layouts, ideal for modern lifestyles.


David Hnyda, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Chiltern, commented: “We are delighted to announce that Alconbury Weald will be launching in the new year, along with the unveiling of the marketing suite and brand new show home. The development will offer purchasers the opportunity to be part of a thriving, tight-knit community, with a range of amenities on their doorstep. The scheme involves the regeneration of a former WWII RAF base, making this is a particularly exciting project for Crest Nicholson; we look forward to welcoming residents to their new homes from March 2020.”


Surrounded by hundreds of acres of open space, the residents at the Alconbury Weald development will have access to a range of existing amenities, including a brand new primary school, café, gym and cricket pavilion. Building work for a secondary school is also currently underway, with an anticipated opening date of September 2022. Alongside various shops and services, there will also be new health and community centres, with 1 million sq. ft of business space already completed.


A series of cycle and walking routes throughout the development provide connectivity for those keen to enjoy an active lifestyle.  For residents looking to travel or commute to nearby hubs, the development is situated on the junction of the A1 and A4. This provides easy access to the Cambridge Guided Busway which offers links to Huntingdon, St. Ives and Cambridge. Huntingdon station is also just a 15 minute drive from the development, offering trains to London Paddington with an hour.
