Cambridge home-buyers seeking the best of contemporary living will have the ideal opportunity when Rubicon, the latest phase of Knights Park by award-winning developer Hill Group, launches this Autumn.
Rubicon is an architecturally striking new scheme where residents will enjoy stylish high-spec apartments looking out over scenic countryside. Designed by world-renowned Alison Brooks Architects, the development features 120 studios, one-to-three bedroom apartments and penthouses set within 123 acres of green space. The project forms part of the thriving new community of Eddington, conceived by the University of Cambridge, less than two miles from Cambridge city centre.
The development’s distinctive buildings with shimmering brick façades in complimentary tones host sleek modern apartments that feature industrial-style glazing and state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings. As well as all apartments enjoying the glorious garden views, some will boast their own private outdoor space while upper floor units feature high-vaulted ceilings that dramatically bring in natural light.
Rubicon is a forward-thinking development that captures the new lifestyle demands of residents seeking to harmonise their work and home life as a result of the increased prevalence of home working. Co-working accommodation includes open areas ideal for generating collaboration or space for business calls, meetings and focussed work. Each space provides functional contemporary furniture, strategic lighting and natural planting, all carefully considered to create an atmosphere where residents can be at their most productive.
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director for Hill Group, comments: “Rubicon provides the ideal residence for modern living, bringing together architecturally stunning homes set within the perfect landscaped grounds for enjoying life. Hill have also anticipated recent demand for homes where people can have the best of both worlds when it comes to working and unwinding with our co-working accommodation.
As well as its unmatched aesthetic appeal, home-buyers will also appreciate Rubicon’s excellent quality of construction by a 5-star housebuilder and exceptionally high-level of energy efficiency. Indeed, the Knights Park development has already earned Hill a series of awards for its inspired design and commitment to sustainability.
Rubicon is well located to take advantage of Cambridge’s excellent travel connections, with Stansted Airport just 30 minutes by train and Heathrow Airport an hour and a half away by car. Trains from Cambridge Railway Station into Central London take less than 50 minutes, and the station is just an 18 minute bus ride away from Knights Park.
Knights Park is situated in Eddington, a new district just a 12-minute cycle from Cambridge city centre. This new community has been devised by the University of Cambridge with the aim of delivering a brand new neighbourhood for the city with sustainability at its heart and a high quality of life for residents. Eddington offers a range of amenities such as a supermarket, shops and public square for residents to come together. Future facilities include a doctor’s surgery and new Hyatt and Locke hotel, which will launch in October and offer all residents the opportunity to join their onsite gym or visit the roof top bar.
