With a number of new facilities being created on the doorstep of a 120-acre country park: new schools, health and community facilities and an exciting arts programme, buyers will get much more for their money.

Occupying a prime location just outside Cambridge and within easy reach of the universities and research and business parks, Novo is well-situated. Consisting of an exclusive collection of just 18 homes, there are two-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom houses available, all of which overlook Roseum Gardens, a beautifully landscaped square.

As part of the wider Great Kneighton community, the development benefits from an extensive range of facilities, including the newly-opened Trumpington Community College and a 120-acre country park, recently named Hobson’s Park. Ideal for the whole community, the park will offer plenty to keep residents active, including a skate park, children’s adventure play area and a 1km trim trail. Further community amenities will include a community centre, a medical centre, shops, a public library, a café, offices, allotments, exercise facilities and sports pitches.

Great Kneighton also features an exciting public art programme that started four years ago and is still evolving. The programme includes six highly collaborative projects – led by artists and involving residents – and is currently inviting people to develop a large community garden that Countryside, the developers behind the project, has set aside for the whole community.

Andrew Loveday, sales director at Countryside said: “We are expecting the final release of homes at Novo to be popular with a wide range of buyers including families looking for their long-term home to young professionals buying their first property. Novo offers buyers an exciting opportunity to become part of the exciting new community developing at Great Kneighton and enjoy the extensive facilities being provided.”

The collection at Novo includes the four-bedroom Castello house design which is laid out over three floors and boasts three outdoor terraces. The ground floor features a fully integrated double garage, home office, bedroom and adjoining shower room.

The first floor is the heart of the home and features a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area. The private terrace on this floor floods the entire space with natural light and provides the ideal space to relax and unwind.

The large master bedroom can be found on the second floor, with integrated wardrobes and a luxurious en suite bathroom. Boasting a private terrace, this is the perfect space for parents to escape and relax. Another double bedroom can be found on this level, also featuring an en suite and its own private terrace.

The homes are built to a high specification with composite stone worktops, white gloss handleless units and fully integrated appliances, including dishwashers and washer dryers to kitchens. Bathrooms and en suite shower rooms have white sanitaryware, chrome accessories and cream ceramic floor and wall tiles.

Novo enjoys excellent transport links and the city centre can be easily reached via the guided busway and the Park and Ride, while a new cycle path network makes travelling by bike more accessible.

From the railway station, there are regular services to central London and, if travelling by car, the M11 is only a few minutes away. Stansted Airport is around half an hour.

Prices for properties at Novo start from £399,995 for a two-bedroom apartment and a four-bedroom house from £789,995. For more information, call 01223 846 650 or visit countryside-properties.com.
