Kaleidoscope is streets ahead according to latest homebuyers

11914 020When it comes to buying a property, ‘location, location, location’ has long been the mantra and according to recent research from Nationwide, this is still the case; as location is what matters when it comes to properties holding their value under pressure in the UK real estate market.

For Doctor Hadi Behesti (35), this was certainly the case, with location firmly at the top of his wishlist. Hadi, who was immediately attracted to Kaleidoscope’s inspirational Cambridge development, one of the most sought-after addresses in the city, found the desirability of the local area and excellent transport links, paramount to his purchasing decision.

Hadi comments: “When I heard about the Kaleidoscope development, I immediately registered and went to visit. I have lived in Cambridge for seven years now and always hoped that an opportunity to buy in this area would arise. It is extremely well located and, as a large part of my job involves travelling up and down the country visiting patients, it was important for me to be close to good road links.”

Hadi continues: “I had been looking to move out of my three-bedroom rented house in Cambridge for a while and get my first foot on the property ladder. I had been to visit several other new build developments in Cambridge but none could rival the huge amount of living space and high quality specification that the apartments at Kaleidoscope offer. I wasn’t deliberately looking to downsize but was so impressed with Kaleidoscope and the properties there, that I made the decision to go ahead and buy a two bedroom apartment.”

Ideal for those looking to make the most out of living at the heart of this historic university city, Kaleidoscope boasts a sophisticated range of 408 properties in total. The development has been meticulously master-planned to create a lively community with a strong sense of place. Designed by award-winning architects Proctor and Matthews, whose other work includes the Greenwich Millennium Village, the development incorporates traditional, locally sourced materials with the architecture imaginatively using feature panels in a variety of colours. Combining a sleek, modern exterior with a classic and stylish interior, homes at Kaleidoscope will, when complete, be dispersed across 11 architecturally unique buildings and landscaped areas that will be linked by a sequence of shared spaces.

Hadi continues: “Living at Kaleidoscope means that I am within easy reach of everything I could possibly need. The cosmopolitan lifestyle that Cambridge offers suits me down to the ground and Kaleidoscope is the perfect base from which to enjoy it.”

Cambridge boasts excellent travel links; Cambridge Railway Station is just five minutes from the scheme and provides a non-stop service to London Kings Cross in just 45 minutes. Alternatively, the M11 is just six miles away providing a swift route to Stansted Airport and the motorway network beyond.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern comments: “Kaleidoscope has already proven to be extremely popular, with a number of different purchaser types, but particularly amongst young professionals, like Hadi as well as those looking to buy for investment. Given the high specification and central location of the apartments, homebuyers are also aware of the potential for future capital growth, making Kaleidoscope an excellent choice all round.”

Prices at Kaleidoscope start at a guide price of £240,000 for a one bedroom apartment. For further information please contact the marketing suite on 0870 757 8186 or visit
