With space at a premium in many cities and busy lifestyles leaving no time for maintaining large outdoor space, many house hunters are now looking for an alternative to the traditional garden. Re-thinking the concept of traditional outdoor space for modern 21st century living, Countryside has created a collection of new homes with terraces and balconies, designed for busy lifestyles and lower maintenance, at its Novo development at Great Kneighton in Cambridge.

David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes & Communities Central Division, comments: “Set overlooking a beautiful central square, the four-bedroom family homes have been designed to suit the needs of a modern 21st century family. We decided to incorporate three separate terraces in The Castello, as they have always been extremely popular in providing alternative private outdoor space, perfect for unwinding, relaxing or even entertaining guests. Homebuyers looking for lower maintenance living, without compromising on outdoor space, will not be disappointed with the new homes at Novo.”

For prospective homebuyers looking for a property comprising outdoor space, in the form of a balcony or terrace, without the upkeep, Novo offers a selection of just 18, two-bedroom apartments and eight four-bedroom family houses, overlooking the beautifully landscaped Roseum Square. A striking example of the properties available, the Castellois a three-storey, four-bedroom home which offers a generous terrace at each level.

On the ground floor, the Castello offers a large double garage, a spacious bedroom with en suite and an additional room which would make the ideal home office, teenage snug or TV room.  The generous open plan kitchen, living and dining area on the first floor is the heart of the home. The beautiful contemporary kitchen is fitted with gloss white handle-less units and composite stone worktops, as well as a full range of integrated appliances.

Another light and airy space is the family sized dining area and large living area opening onto a spacious private terrace, perfect for entertaining guests. A second en suite bedroom is located on this floor. The second storey is home to two further large double bedrooms, each with a private en suite bathroom and its own private terrace.

Every bathroom is fitted with stylish white sanitary ware complemented by chrome accessories and cream tiles to the floor and walls. Amtico wood effect vinyl flooring runs through the main living areas, with luxurious carpet to the bedrooms.

Novo forms part of Great Kneighton, an exciting new community on the southern fringe of Cambridge, where Countryside is creating a wide range of facilities and amenities including a proposed health centre, shops, community square, new school, transport links and abundant green spaces, including a 120-acre country park.

For convenient travel, Novo is located just a short walk from the Great Kneighton stop on the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway, which takes passengers to Cambridge train station in just five minutes. Frequent rail services from Cambridge to 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.
