People looking to buy a new home that offers a lot more than just bricks and mortar should take a look at the last and final phase of homes available at Novo at Great Kneighton, Cambridge. With a wealth 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 that warmly embraces the whole new community together, buyers will get much more for their buck.

Occupying a prime location on the fringes of Cambridge within easy access of the universities, research and business parks, Novo enjoys a great location. Comprising an exclusive collection of just 18 homes, there are two bedroom apartments and four-bedroom houses available, all overlooking 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. Perfect for the whole community, the park will offer plenty to keep residents active, including a skate park, children’s adventure play area and 1km trim trail. Further community amenities will include a community centre, medical centre, shops, public library, café, offices, allotments, exercise facilities and sports pitches.

Great Kneighton also features an exciting public art programme, now well underway, that started four years ago and is still evolving. The programme includes six highly collaborative projects led by artist and involving residents and is currently inviting people to develop a large community garden that Countryside 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. ”
