Hampton is a growing township a few miles to the south of historic cathedral city Peterborough, in the picturesque county of Cambridgeshire. Footpaths wind around the beautiful green spaces and lakes that surround the new-build homes. Served by the Serpentine Green shopping centre, this township is an ideal place to downsize and enjoy a comfortable retirement in one of our McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living apartments.
There are 45 modern one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments available at Cranberry Court for over-60s, each featuring a fully fitted kitchen, double-glazing and an integrated fridge-freezer. Relax in one of the spacious living rooms and sleep soundly in the state-of-the-art bedrooms, thanks to the peace of mind afforded by an intruder alarm and camera entry system.
The double-glazed windows will keep you cosy during the winter months, but when the weather is fine you will be able to enjoy the property's exclusive landscaped gardens and communal areas. Footpaths connect the neighbourhood with its own local shops. And for those looking for something larger, the Serpentine Green shopping centre is only 450m away from the proposed development's site, containing a large Tesco Extra hypermarket, a Boots, WH Smith, Costa Coffee and Mothercare. A healthcare centre, a hairdresser's and a GP's office can also be found at Serpentine Green.
Hampton Avenue, the road accessing the property once completed, will be a shaded, green thoroughfare, lined with trees and with large footpaths for residents to take into town. On the other side of the property is London Road, providing easy access to nearby restaurants such as a Toby Carvery and Frankie & Benny's, as well as a Premier Inn that's ideal for visitors. There is also a Vivacity Fitness club a short walk down London Road.
