5 bedroom detached house for saleChurch Street, Cambridge
Full descriptionPark View is an exclusive development of just four stunning new detached houses, looking out onto parkland in the desirable Old Chesterton area of Cambridge.
Park View sets a new standard for Cambridge: designed by award-winning architects, built using the finest materials and incorporating the latest technology.
Each with five bedrooms and a gross area of over 2,600 sq ft, these are unusually spacious family homes. The rear gardens are all South-facing while a full-width rear balcony and expansive roof
terrace look out over the garden and playing fields beyond.
From integrated, high-efficiency air conditioning to carefully selected Yorkshire bricks, Park View combines the best in modern design with the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship.
From your very first glance at Park View, the quality of materials and design shines through.
Linear bricks, made especially for Park View by York Handmade Brick, were carefully selected to match the palette of the roofs on the listed 18th century buildings adjoining.
The standing seam zinc roof, applied carefully by a master craftsman, not only marries well with the clean, modern architecture, but also promises an exceptionally long and maintenance-free life.
Park View is separated from the road by an elegant, high brick wall matching the neighbouring historic properties. As you enter from the roadside, a landscaped, open-plan front garden welcomes you with space for off-road parking, complimented by matching recycling and cycle stores for each of the houses.
Premium windows are used throughout and were chosen for their energy efficiency and security as well as their elegance and reliability. Their slim frames are based on the newest technology
and let in as much light as possible, with durable metal on the exterior complemented by warm wood on the interior surfaces.
Almost completely hidden from sight, some of the most efficient solar panels on the market are fitted on the flat roof at the peak of the building, delivering green energy to help power the house and even sell back into the grid.
Last but not least, around the houses and in the rear gardens, prize-winning landscape architects have been engaged to design an exceptional planting scheme which suits the style and character of the developments while minimising future maintenance.
As you step through the oak front doors into the generous entry hallway, open-tread oak stairs provide beautiful views through the full length of the house and into the garden and trees beyond.
Large windows maximise the natural light in all the rooms.
Throughout the house, the latest LED lamps are used: highly efficient and rated for over 10 years of normal use while still providing daylight-quality, full-spectrum light.
The kitchen is fitted with bespoke cabinets. Miele appliances include a full-height fridge and freezer, a large five-zone gas hob, and four ovens: two main, a combination and a steam oven. In the utility room, you will find the latest Miele washing machine and high-efficiency heat pump tumble drier.
For the hallway, kitchen and bathrooms, elegant and durable large format ceramic tiles have been selected from luxury manufacturer Mosa. The stairs, landings and lounge have oak engineered flooring, with high quality carpet elsewhere. Throughout the house, oak skirting, architraves and doors are used.
The bathrooms are fitted with premium Laufen and Duravit ceramics, complemented by Hansgrohe fittings. Large, rainforest overhead showers in all bathrooms deliver a luxurious and relaxing spa experience. Again, from walnut veneer vanity units to soft-close toilets, attention to detail is unfaltering.
The modern construction and high-performance windows help the house to stay naturally cool in summer and warm in winter. When needed, highly-efficient underfloor heating throughout the house provides uniform, convenient warmth without the need for radiators. Meanwhile, in summer, A+++ energy rated air conditioning units provide near-silent comfort cooling to all the principal areas of the house.
Old Chesterton is fast becoming one of the most desirable places to live in Cambridge. Steeped in history and an ancient parish, Old Chesterton offers a unique, homely atmosphere while avoiding the grind of central Cambridge.
Only a mile from the city centre, the attractions of Cambridge are close at hand, yet Old Chesterton still retains its original village charm. In the enviable position of having the River Cam a few
hundred metres away, it truly has encapsulated all the wonders of country life in a convenient city setting.
The area is well known for a selection of fabulous restaurants and pubs, with everything from beautiful family-friendly pubs like the Fort St George and Green Dragon through to fine dining
at Restaurant Twenty-Two and Midsummer House, which has earned two Michelin stars.
Meanwhile, Chesterton High Street offers a wide range of local amenities including a post office, independent shops, supermarkets, chemists, dentists and medical care.
For work and transport, Old Chesterton is conveniently located within easy walking and cycling distance of Cambridge train station, Cambridge Science Park and Cambridge Business Park.
The new Cambridge North station, scheduled to open in 2017, will be even closer, with trains to London and Birmingham. Road transport is equally handy for Cambridge and beyond. For families with children, Park View falls in the sought-after catchments of Milton Road Primary School and Chesterton Community College secondary school. The Leys, St John's and Perse schools, to name a few, are also easily accessible.
