Cala launches Cambridge homes at Waterbeach development

A Waterbeach development in Cambridge is being launched by developer Cala, delivering 6,500 new homes over the next 20 years.

The first 111 homes will be launched this July. Some 76 one & two bedroom apartments and three & four bedroom houses will be available for private sale, with the remaining 35 available as affordable housing provided by Longhurst Group.

Louise Johnson, senior sales manager at Cala North Home Counties, said: “We’re so excited to be finally opening the doors to Cala at Waterbeach. Our VIP launch event on July 15th and 16th is a great opportunity to be one of the first to step inside our exemplary 4 bedroom mid-terrace house – the De Havilland – and experience luxury living taken to a whole new level.

“The opening of the showhome to the public will follow on Monday 17th July. This will be the first opportunity for house hunters who missed out on the VIP event to get a glimpse of the lifestyle on offer at the development and view the quality design and finish that Cala is renowned for.

“This brand-new community, next to the thriving historic village of Waterbeach is set to grow and blossom as more people will eventually begin to call it home. With easy access to the Cambridgeshire countryside, excellent transport connections to London, and only six miles from Cambridge city centre, this development is perfectly placed in the heart of Cambridgeshire.”

Developers Urban&Civic are overseeing the transformation of the new community, which is based on the 724-acre former airfield and barracks site.

The development will eventually house thousands of new homes, three new primary schools, one secondary school, a special needs school, as well as provide 290,625 square feet of employment floor space.

The new Waterbeach will foster a lively café culture, centred around the 23-acre lake, as well as a town centre including a health centre and community spaces, residents will be able to enjoy a calendar of cultural and community occasions.

Waterbeach also features 59 acres of richly diverse woodland, green spaces, sports pitches with a 23-acre lake at its heart, as well as an abundance of amenities for residents to enjoy with a focus on sustainability and wellbeing at its core.

The Cala homes at Waterbeach range in size from 538 square feet to 2,038 square feet with options for first time buyers to forever-home house hunters.
