People in Britain always aim to please when it comes to having dinner guests, spending over £100 each time they host. Research carried out by Home Sense shows that the average Brit spends £134 every time they have a dinner party*, highlighting that there is a clear demand for the perfect party setting.

Aura is the Hostess with the Mostess

While the trend for lavish parties continues, award-winning developer, Countryside, has designed the ultimate ‘homes that can host’ at Aura, Cambridge, which are the ultimate party pads for that special occasion.

Part of the popular Great Kneighton development, Aura is located on Long Road, one of the most prestigious addresses in Cambridge and is nestled between mature woodland creating a picture perfect party setting. The development comprises one, two and three bedroom apartments and three, four and five bedroom family homes that frame communal gardens within the development. The contemporary properties are linked together through a network of pedestrian paths creating a safe and easy to navigate route home for guests leaving the celebrations.

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director for Countryside comments: “We know that some people like to go the extra mile when cooking for their friends and family. Those looking for a new family home wouldn’t have to worry about having the facilities or the space to host the perfect get together in the selection of party pads at Aura! Aura is a development where residents can enjoy modern day living experiences while creating great memories in their new home that the family can cherish forever.”

A perfect example of the party pads available at Aura is The Kavanagh, a four-bedroom house that has been designed to make the most of natural light, making it easy to throw a party at any time of the day. With several terraces, the Kavanagh can host a variety of parties such as BBQ’s and a summer get together.

This family home is arranged over four storeys which is an ideal set up for those parents or siblings that may want to leave the party early and retreat for some wind down time. The open plan kitchen and family area are on the ground floor, providing a large space for either a dance floor or a buffet food spread and a separate living room offering a library, snug area and an expansive terrace across the first floor. A luxurious dual aspect master bedroom occupies the whole of the top floor with two private terraces and a large en suite, giving Mum and Dad some well-deserved rest after hosting a night to remember.

The properties at Aura are set amid green open spaces and tree-lined avenues, creating lovely scenery for those coming over to enjoy an afternoon/evening with friends and family. The development also features natural areas which lead directly onto the wildlife corridor, providing uninterrupted views to the adjoining countryside. Aura includes a wide range of new amenities such as schools, a health and community centre, shops, a library, offices, sports pitches and a 120-acre country park.

Located to the south of Cambridge city centre, Aura is ideally located for excellent schooling and mainline rail links to London. The Cambridge Guided Bus stops just moments away offering regular services to the city, train station, Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus. 

The Kavanagh is currently available for £950,000. Three bedroom homes at Aura start from £699,950 and other four bedroom house designs such as The Arlington are priced from £895,000. For more information please visit www.auracambridge.co.uk or call the sales team on 01223 656 167.
