The former Cambridge Squash club on Histon Road, that has remained unused for 6 years is now set for regeneration into a development of high-quality new properties by Laragh homes.
Cambridge City Council approved Laragh homes’ Reserved Matters Application for the delivery of 27 brand new homes, at the end of 2019.
The development will provide 17 private and 10 affordable homes which will be made available through the Help to Buy scheme, all designed by architects Haysom Ward Miller.
There will be a mix of one, two, three and four bedroom properties with easy access to Cambridge city centre, Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge North Station, and the nearby A14/M11.
At the time of acquisition of the site, Laragh’s development manager John Lorimer stated:
“Quality of the scheme is paramount for Laragh, we are looking to deliver 27 exceptional homes in a mews-style design located within a two-mile radius of central Cambridge.
He added: “There are not many high-quality new build cul-de-sac developments available in the city anymore, so this is positive news for prospective home buyers and will provide opportunities for people wanting to live within easy access of central Cambridge, the nearby A14 and Cambridge North Station”
The approved plans allow for the creation of a unique cul-de-sac mews-style development, that will incorporate eco credentials such as electric car-charging points and rainwater harvesting, together with heat pump and solar systems.
