Countryside is proud to announce the opening of two new show homes at its award-winning new homes development, Abode at Great Kneighton. The exceptional four and five-bedroom properties perfectly complement the modern family, showcasing a luxurious specification and thoughtful design. Nestled within the Cambridgeshire countryside, just three miles from the city centre, the houses offer the height of contemporary living in one of the country’s most desirable locations.
Abode is a collection of modern two-bedroom apartments and four and five bedroom houses that forms part of Great Kneighton, an exciting new community being created on the southern fringe of Cambridge. Great Kneighton offers a range of amenities, abundant green spaces, including a 120-acre park, and excellent transport links that provide a quick and easy commute to Cambridge train station, and into the city centre.
David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes & Communities Central Division comments: “The two new show homes are representative of the innovative architecture on display throughout Abode, and are ideally suited to families searching for a long-term home. There is enough space for family members to enjoy their own privacy, as well as come together in the main communal areas for family time. We are expecting a huge amount of interest in the show homes, which have been designed to illustrate how purchasers can enjoy the space and specification offered in their new home at Abode.”
The first of the show homes which has been opened is The Windham; an impressive five-bedroom home with a unique courtyard and five outdoor terraces. The ground floor is home to a spacious open plan kitchen/living and dining area, which wraps around the fully integrated central courtyard. The courtyard, along with full height windows, French doors and vaulted ceilings ensure the home is flooded with natural light.
On the second floor is a separate living room, with access to a terrace overlooking the courtyard, and three of the bedrooms including the master suite, which incorporates a large dressing area. The top floor features another pair of double bedrooms, both of which benefit from their own private terrace. All of the five bedrooms also have a luxurious en suite bathroom with stylish white sanitary ware and chrome accessories.
The Whitworth, meanwhile, is a beautifully designed four-bedroom family home, with thoughtful detailing throughout. The ground floor features a fully integrated double garage, and the large kitchen/dining and family area boasts elegant double French doors which open out onto the garden. A home office completes this level.
Upstairs, the large living room has access to two outdoor terraces, and features a wood burner, for a warming touch. Two double bedrooms are featured on this level too. The master suite can be found on the second floor, elegantly designed with a dressing room, and luxurious en suite bathroom. There is access to an expansive rooftop terrace through the final bedroom, ideal for entertaining or relaxing in the evening.
Abode is only a short walk from the Great Kneighton access point for the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway, which provides a five-minute journey to Cambridge train station, and then into the city centre. Frequent services from the station into London King’s Cross take as little as 49 minutes, making Cambridge a popular choice with commuters. The development is also just a few minutes from the M11 for London, Stansted Airport and the nearby towns of Newmarket, Huntingdon and Norwich.
Prices for the four bedroom ‘The Whitworth’ house-type start at £1,175,000 and the five bedroom ‘The Windham’ house-type are available from £1,275,000.
