Doors Open at Cambridgeshire Arts and Crafts scheme, which is already 55 per cent sold

April 30, 2021

The doors have opened at Hayfield Avenue in the historic Cambridgeshire village of Great Gransden. Only 24 luxury homes are available for private sale – featuring sound-deadened studies and eco-friendly Air Source Heat Pumps – and 14 purchasers have already secured their preferred homes off-plan.  

A five-bedroom show home by Lifestyle Interiors has been styled to articulate modern country living. Bespoke joinery and natural textures have been combined with a neutral colour palette to illustrate how Hayfield Avenue’s rural village setting can be combined with a contemporary interior.

Kelly Sharman, Sales and Marketing Director for five-star homebuilder Hayfield said: “The design of this exclusive development has taken inspiration from the Arts and Crafts properties within this sought-after highly picturesque Cambridgeshire village. The combination of the traditional architecture with a luxury, eco-efficient interior is really striking a chord with purchasers. People who will shortly be moving into their new Hayfield Avenue homes include those already living in Great Gransden, and families relocating from over 100 miles away.

“Due to the proximity of Addenbrookes and Papworth Hospitals, this scheme is also proving popular with those working for the NHS. We are delighted to be able to offer our exclusive £5,000 Key Worker Discount to all those who meet the criteria. There are now only 10 homes available to sell and we are really looking forward to welcoming people into the elegant show home, adhering to our Covid-19 Safe Operating Procedure.”

Located off Sand Road, prices for the current release of three, four and five-bedroom executive family homes range from £400,000 to £725,000. Great Gransden benefits from a traditional village community and has been a previous winner of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England’s Best Kept Village competition. It is highly sought-after due to its Ofsted Outstanding schooling, local amenities, peaceful yet convenient location, collection of historic buildings and the Gransden & District Agricultural Society Annual Show.

Gemma Schofield, Managing Director at Lifestyle Interiors said: “To achieve the perfect interior to match these stunning homes, we wanted to add depth to the traditional country design style – in order to modernise it. Hayfield Avenue maintains simplicity and elegance throughout, which is a hallmark of the country chic look. Natural hues and neutral tones such as whites, creams, browns and beiges create a warm, welcoming and smart country home, while allowing the beautiful architecture and light-filled living spaces to do the talking. We hope visitors to this fabulous development pick up on all the luxury details, such as the bespoke joinery inset with bronze antique mirrors, the soft feature lighting, and the use of many different textures and tones, which showcase this home.”

The collection of brick and render homes feature Hayfield’s luxurious specification, including bespoke Manor Interiors kitchens, ROCA Laufen bathrooms, Minoli ceramic tiles, underfloor heating, Hammonds fitted wardrobes, heritage bronze ironmongery, Farrow & Ball paint, and sound-deadened studies. All the homes are heated by eco-friendly Air Source Heat Pumps.  

The village is well served by the two nearby towns of Cambourne and St Neots, the latter of which is the largest town in Cambridgeshire and offers a 47-minute direct train service to London’s Kings Cross station. Great Gransden is also a convenient location for commuting into Cambridge, Bedford, Stevenage and Peterborough and across East Anglia. The close by A428 provides excellent access to the A11 and M11 Motorway, the A1 and the A1/M1 link road, as well as the A14 and A10. The village also benefits from a bus service, which stops at numerous locations including Cambourne, St Neots and Cambridge. 

Hayfield is an HBF five-star builder. The company has recently won Gold and Bronze accolades at the 2020 WhatHouse? Awards and has also received three Pride in the Job NHBC Awards.

The Hayfield Avenue show home is open daily between 10am – 5pm, located at Sand Road, Great Gransden, Cambridgeshire, SG19 3AQ. To find out more, please call 0800 046 9031, or email
