May 2023 – Rangeford Villages has officially launched the Marketing Suite at Strawberry Fields, its brand-new lifestyle community for the over 60’s in Stapleford, Cambridgeshire, giving prospective buyers looking to secure a home at the modern new village the opportunity to reserve a home off plan.

Interested buyers were extended a special invitation to attend a preview event on 8th May, which aimed to showcase what the lifestyle at the contemporary new retirement village might look like and to get detailed information about securing a home in their desired location.

Attendees were also given an update on the village’s latest developments, property information and prices, with one-bedroom apartments starting from £399,950 and two-bedroom bungalows from £750,000. As a token of appreciation, all attendees were also gifted a strawberry plant, in honour of the village’s location on the site of a former strawberry field.

Located in the attractive hamlet of Stapleford, four miles south of Cambridge, Strawberry Fields borders Magog Down, a 163-acre reserve on the Gog Magog Hills with views of the surrounding countryside.  The village will offer 147 contemporary 1, 2, and 3 bedroom retirement properties with the first phase of the scheme estimated for completion in Spring 2025.

Angela McKimmie – Sales Director commented: “I’m thrilled with the marketing suite where we are able to host such events. The launch of the sales on Wednesday was a total success as we had our reservist’s in to celebrate and new potential homeowners from in and around the local area.”

‘We are continuing to receive lots of sales enquiries and would encourage those interested to visit the marketing suite to find out about the extensive range of properties, amenities and services available at this stunning contemporary community.”

Homes at Strawberry Fields will be built with the needs of over 60s in mind, with a provision of onsite care for residents, allowing them to live independently with confidence.

The new village will feature a range of sensitively designed bungalows and apartments, incorporating state-of-the-art and energy-efficient features and the creation of amenities to encourage residents to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Facilities will include a wellbeing centre (pool, steam room and sauna), gym, dance studio, bistro, coffee shop and bar, village hall and a hair and beauty salon. 

Residents will live among fully manicured gardens, with an outside terrace off the bar and bistro, great for socialising with friends and neighbours, and a boules court and croquet lawn. Nearby Wandlebury Country Park offers a beautiful countryside estate offering miles of wonderful walks through woodland and wildflower meadows grazed by Highland Cattle.

Properties will be highly energy efficient and include modern features such as underfloor heating, double-glazed picture windows and an all-electric energy system to help lower bills and environmental impact. Electric car charging points, pool cars, as well as communal transport, will all be available for owners’ use.
