Development almost 95 percent sold

Almost 95 per cent of the homes being built by the first developer at the Cambridgeshire new town of Northstowe have now been sold.

Bloor Homes is building 92 homes as part of the development’s first phase, and there are now just four properties remaining for sale, including two show homes.
The national housebuilder began work on site in 2017, with the first residents moving into their homes in May of that year, and the new town is continuing to take shape.
The first primary school at Northstowe, The Pathfinder Church of England Primary School, opened its doors last September.
The first secondary school, which will be run by Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), which also runs the nearby Outstanding rated Swavesey Village College, is due to open in September 2019.
Located six miles north of Cambridge city centre, Northstowe is the largest settlement planned in England for the past 50 years, and will eventually comprise a community of up to 10,000 homes, served by a range of shops, restaurants, schools, GP surgeries and community facilities.
Phase one of the development will include 1,500 homes, 300 of which will be provided as affordable housing.
Bloor Homes’ part of the development features a variety of properties, ranging from two and three-bedroom homes ideal for first-time buyers and downsizers, as well as larger four and five-bedroom homes perfect for growing families.

“With the majority of our homes at Northstowe now completed, and the first school already open, this brand new community is really beginning to take shape. The development is providing much-needed new housing for the Cambridge area, enabling many buyers priced out of the city centre to
