More than two million people across the country now cycle at least once a week, an all-time high according to ¹British Cycling, the sport’s governing body in the UK. With petrol prices once again on the rise, it is no surprise that the appeal of commuting on two wheels rather than four is increasing and why developments such as award winning developer Countryside’s Abode in Great Kneighton are proving so popular.

The Appeal of Pedal Power Points Purchasers to Abode

Set within a growing and vibrant urban village community, the collection of two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes and two, four and five bedroom homes is conveniently situated only two miles south of Cambridge city centre with an excellent transport network right on the doorstep, including cycle links that create an easy, safe and quick commute into the city. 

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director for Countryside comments: “We know that proximity to work is one of the main factors purchasers look for when buying a new home and Abode offers a whole host of transport options on its doorstep. Our homes include cycle storage and a fantastic network of cycle paths and footpaths offer cyclists great links into the city, whilst those who prefer to take a more leisurely approach can take advantage of the great new bus service, the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (CGB) that is set to have an access point just minutes from Abode with journey times into Cambridge in about 20 minutes.”

As well as offering a superb location, each of the homes at Abode enjoys Countryside’s high levels of specification and design with open plan, flexible living that appeals to the modern purchaser. The homes boast stylish interiors with contemporary fitted kitchens that include a full range of energy efficient integrated appliances. Modern bathrooms and en-suites have white sanitaryware, whilst master bedrooms contain fitted wardrobes with sliding, mirrored doors.  Many of the apartments feature private terraces or stunning winter gardens, whilst all houses benefit from landscaped private gardens to the front and turfed gardens to the rear.

Residents are also able to take advantage of a 120 acre country park, currently being constructed by Countryside, which includes wetlands, woodland, a 50,000m² bird reserve and four ponds. In addition, allotments, playing fields and a range of play areas, including an adventure playground will also be available for residents once the development is complete.

Countryside’s Part Exchange scheme, available on selected properties means that you do not have to worry about selling your current home and the whole process can be completed very quickly, with all estate agents fees and valuations taken care of.

Currently available at Abode are two bedroom houses from £499,950 and four bedroom properties from £825,000 as well as two bedroom apartments from £430,000. For more information on Abode visit www.abodecambridge.co.uk or call 01223 846 650.
