L&Q: Shared Ownership launched in Cambridgeshire

First time buyer apartments and maisonettes available at L&Q at Marleigh

L&Q have recently launched a contemporary collection of Shared Ownership apartments and maisonettes at Marleigh; a vibrant new urban neighbourhood in the heart of Cambridgeshire. Initially launched on Saturday 2nd October 2021, each home offers expansive, light filled rooms opening out onto large private balconies from which to enjoy the views over Marleigh square.

Ranging in size from 51 to 112 square metres, each apartment offers a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room, and an abundance of storage space. Stylish apartments and contemporary kitchens with energy efficient appliances offer great value for money. Designed for entertaining, sleek integrated appliances blend into a light comfortable living space with direct access to a private terrace or balcony for outdoor entertaining. The three bedroom maisonettes benefit from twin private terraces to the front and rear, ideal for budding balcony gardeners. Presented as ready to move in, the apartments are decorated in neutral tones offering a stylish, contemporary feel – ready for buyers to truly make their own.

Surrounded by beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside, yet just three miles from Cambridge City Centre, L&Q at Marleigh provides buyers with the best of what both city and country life has to offer. In addition to over 1,300 new homes, the development provides a dynamic neighbourhood with a range of diverse facilities and amenities to suit every lifestyle. Residents will enjoy an on-site nursery and primary school – ideal for young families – as well as sports pitches and a community centre to foster relationships with neighbours.

A central market square provides a host of coffee shops and rendezvous locations for meeting up with others. The square will play host to a number of local events including a farmers’ market, as well as providing a community centre where residents can come together to work, rest or play.

Christine Osborne, Sales & Customer Services Director at L&Q, said; “The vibrant new neighbourhood of Marleigh is the ideal choice for those searching for a home for their family. Spacious and adaptable living spaces, plus access to a host of on-site amenities from hospitality offerings, to exercise areas and an abundance of outdoor space, means the development truly provides everything needed for a contemporary family lifestyle.

“The Marleigh neighbourhood has been specifically designed to allow residents to socialise with neighbours and foster a true sense of community. Easy access to Cambridge and beautiful outdoor spaces, combined with excellent transport links, offers residents the very best of what both rural and city living has to offer.”

As demand for outside space continues to soar, residents at L&Q at Marleigh can also enjoy exploring nature with a host of open green spaces, public parks and woodland within short proximity. On site allotment gardens also provide the opportunity to grow fruit and vegetables outdoors. New and improved walkways and cycle paths also link directly to the city centre. For those looking to easily access the capital, London’s Kings Cross Station is just 51 minutes from Cambridge Train Station, making commuting easy and allowing more time to spend with the family.
