Cambridge Calling First Time Buyers

Delivering an accessible route onto the property ladder in Cambridge, the UK’s second most expensive place to live, L&Q has just released additional two-bedroom Shared Ownership homes at L&Q at Darwin Green. Buyers can take advantage of an exclusive incentive and receive £1,000 towards legal fees when they reserve by 21st December.

The Development

A contemporary community in a historic city, L&Q at Darwin Green comprises a collection of one to four bedroom homes in beautiful and sought-after Cambridge. Seamlessly combining a great location, speedy transport links and plenty of space, L&Q’s properties are a perfect choice for single purchases, couples, and young professionals looking for a home that offers everything on the wish list. Deposits currently start from just £8,750.

Claire Brenlund, Sales and Marketing Director at L&Q comments: “Cambridge blends the best of urban living and country charm, so it’s no wonder that the city continues to be a top pick with property hunters. It is now second only to London in terms of high property prices, which is why we’re particularly pleased to be delivering Shared Ownership homes to L&Q at Darwin Green.”

“Our additional two-bedroom apartments meet the demand for accessibly priced properties in the region, enabling first time buyers to secure a home with a lower deposit. The development offers connectivity and character within a close-knit community atmosphere.”

All the homes located within L&Q at Darwin Green have a fully inclusive specification throughout and will be covered by NHBC warranty. Allowing buyers to move straight in, the stylish, fitted kitchens and bathrooms are included as standard. Bedrooms are filled with light, whilst sizeable open-plan living spaces have been designed for getting together. Residents benefit from a private balcony or terrace to every two-bedroom apartment, a video door entry system, communal bicycle storage in all apartment blocks as well as allocated parking.

Significantly enhancing community living, L&Q at Darwin Green residents are also set to benefit from a fantastic range of on-site amenities. A new Health Centre, community rooms, and library are all due to open soon, as well as new schools, sports facilities, and a supermarket planned for future delivery. To encourage residents to explore the beautiful natural surroundings, scenic walking and cycling routes will also be established throughout the development.

Life in Cambridge

Regularly voted one of the best places in Britain to live and work, Cambridge has a thriving shopping, food and drink, and cultural scene. Residents will find a great selection of high street brands at the Grand Arcade and The Grafton shopping centres as well as a variety of supermarkets in close reach for everyday essentials. The Arts Theatre hosts a programme of impressive drama productions whilst the university’s world-class sports centres are available for everyone to use with an array of membership options. At the heart of this beautiful historic city is the famous River Cam, and on its banks, locals can enjoy everything from quiet walks to off-the-beaten-track running trails, and bustling beer gardens to restaurant terraces with a view.

Just a short 15-minute cycle from L&Q at Darwin Green, Cambridge Station offers frequent train services to London to King’s Cross in under 50 minutes, and Liverpool Street in just over an hour. The development also benefits from handy access to the A14 and M11, making getting around by car just as easy. For shorter journeys closer to home, the main road outside the development offers a regular bus service into Cambridge city centre.
