And because the Taylor Wimpey properties in Cambourne are all brand new homes, they can offer even better value for money for buyers than purchasing a second hand house.
Nicola Bullivant, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, says: “The difference in house prices in Cambridgeshire, even in the space of a few miles, is quite staggering, and by moving to a brand new community designed to offer excellent commuter links to Cambridge, people can either enjoy a far bigger property for their money, or reduce their monthly mortgage payments considerably.
“We are finding more and more savvy buyers that are looking for homes for sale in Cambridge or new houses for sale in Huntingdon are moving to developments such as Greenfields Park because they offer superb quality, a popular location and a better lifestyle.”
The new homes development, in the village of Cambourne, just off the A428, is perfect for families, first-time buyers, commuters and couples of all ages, and offers an affordable way to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Quiet countryside is teamed with the new homes being near to schools for primary children, a nursery, a library, a multi-purpose sports centre, playing fields and play areas, a multi-denominational church, and a medical centre.
The Cambridge Belfry Hotel is also a short walk from the Taylor Wimpey development and provides a swimming pool and leisure facilities, while Cambridge city centre is home to a superb range of shops and entertainment venues.
A four-bedroom house at Greenfields Park, the ‘Greenwich’ is an ideal choice for those seeking a contemporary home that offers plenty of flexible space for family life or entertaining.
Characterised by a magnificent kitchen/breakfast room with French doors to the private rear garden, the ground floor is completed by a bedroom which could alternatively be used as a home study, and a cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to a light and airy lounge, a further bedroom and a main bathroom, while the en-suite master bedroom and a second bedroom comfortably share the top floor.
As an alternative to the ‘Greenwich’, one quick-off-the-mark customer can reserve the four-bedroom detached ‘Salisbury’ home priced £309,995 – still over £100,000 less than average similar-sized homes in Cambridge.
This exceptional double-fronted, three-storey house offers ample accommodation, and includes a utility room to the kitchen/breakfast room, a large ground-floor lounge and separate dining room, plus two en-suite bedrooms and a study on the first floor, and two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor.
All new Taylor Wimpey homes in Cambourne are finished to a high standard specification including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
Taylor Wimpey offers a wide range of special incentives for first-time buyers and those with a property to sell, including the leading housebuilder’s easymover programme which enables customers to reserve their new home and then sit back and relax while the housebuilder helps to find a buyer for their current property in as little as six weeks, and pays their estate agency fees.
Incentives for homebuyers can be tailored to individual circumstances and are subject to availability.
