The Latest New Homes News In Cambridgeshire

Posted 13 October 2020 by Keith Osborne

House-hunters can choose from an impressively wide range of new homes across Cambridgeshire right now...

While the city of Cambridge has retained its global appeal of its history and academic reputation, the county of Cambridgeshire has been undergoing dramatic change over the past few years with the creation of whole new communities with thousands of new homes.

The county’s mix of successful towns and cities, charming villages and delightful countryside, combined with numerous excellent transport links, have been enhanced by the growing appeal of living away from London while still being within easy reach of it when needed, for business or pleasure. As a result, many housebuilders providing homes there have experienced a very active market of homebuyers.

We take a look at what kind of new homes are available in Cambridgeshire right now.

Pemberton ParkPemberton Park

The first residents at a new Bovis Homes development in Witchford, near Ely, are now settling into their new homes. Pemberton Park is a development of 124 new homes off Field End, with a wide choice of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom houses complemented by a large public open space with a children’s play area and cycle path. The 91 homes available for private sale have prices currently starting at £244,950, with Help to Buy available.

Sales manager for Bovis Homes, Charlotte Barber, said: “We are very pleased to be welcoming the first residents to the development. The range of homes we are building truly provides something for everyone, with homes to suit all budgets. We have numerous offers, incentives and buying schemes aimed at helping people to secure their home. So far, Pemberton Park has proven to have broad appeal.”

The Bovis Homes brand is part of the Vistry Group, and the company is keen to reassure house-hunters that it is doing all it can to ensure visiting its sites to see the homes first-hand is adhering to all the latest safety standards

Nic Chapman, sales and marketing director of Vistry East Midlands, said: “We have put in a range of measures to keep our customers and staff safe while they are on-site at any of our developments. These measures include one-to-one appointments arranged by telephone to ensure we don’t have multiple households visiting us at any one time.

“Now, with the NHS contact tracing app widely available for use, we are asking our visitors to take the time to scan the individual QR codes located at each of our sales centres to support the effort to curb the spread of the virus and keep all of us safe.”
