Posted 4 August 2021 by Keith Osborne

There are opportunities to acquire a luxury apartment at Knights Park on which housebuilder Hill will pay your Stamp Duty...

Right now, buyers who reserve from WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year Hill’s collection of penthouse apartments at Knights Park in the heart of Eddington in Cambridge will also benefit from paying zero Stamp Duty.

Positioned on the fourth floors of the Florey and Walton buildings, these penthouses are flooded with natural light and boast striking views across Knights Park. Featuring expansive, open-plan kitchen/living/dining areas which extend directly onto large terraces via full-height glazed doors. There’s a high specification throughout, including bespoke German kitchens that come with a range of integrated Bosch appliances. Other features include underfloor heating throughout and high-quality engineered wood flooring.

The master bedroom suites are complete with a sophisticated lounge space, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Additional bedrooms are equally well sized and are an ideal hideaway for children or guests. For those working from home, there are plenty of options for a dedicated home office, and the properties have superfast broadband.

Rebecca Littler, group sales and marketing director, commented: “The penthouses at Knights Park offer the best of apartment living, just a stone’s throw from Cambridge city centre. The enviable layouts provide plenty of space for entertaining or unwinding whilst the wider development enables buyers to meet with neighbours and relax with nature. We are certain that interested buyers will be impressed, and with Stamp Duty paid on selected plots, there has never been a better time to set down roots at Knights Park.”

Environmentally friendly features at the development include an efficient energy centre which delivers instant heat and water, reducing waste and CO₂, solar panels provide all electricity and a rainwater recycling system filters rainwater which provides a renewable source of clean water for toilet flushing, washing machines and watering gardens. Homes are well insulated and feature smart meters and triple glazing helping to keep energy bills low, and low-energy lighting is placed within the surrounding communal areas.

Furthermore, residents have access to 123 acres of open greenspace throughout the scheme.

A range of amenities can be found in the public square including a Sainsbury’s supermarket, independent cafes and shops. Future facilities include a doctor’s surgery and a Hyatt Hotel, offering residents the opportunity to join their onsite gym or visit the roof top bar and restaurant – the ideal place to relax and unwind. Less than two miles from Knights Park and just a 10-minute cycle ride is the centre of Cambridge.

The University of Cambridge Primary School which has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted is also placed within the development, whilst the world-renowned University of Cambridge is also just a short walk from home, making Knights Park an excellent base for families, university staff and investors.
