The Hill Group acquires 17-acre site for Fulbourn residential development

The Hill Group has acquired a 17-acre site for residential development in Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire, to deliver 110 new homes for the local area.

This collection of new homes will include two-bedroom apartments and two- to five-bedroom terraced, semi-detached, and detached houses for private sale.

Affordable housing will include one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom houses available through shared ownership and affordable rent.

Residents will have access to cycle storage and each of the houses will benefit from a private garden.

Situated north of Cow Lane and close to a variety of essential amenities — such as high-performing schools, shops, and Addenbrooke’s Hospital — the development will be designed to reflect the existing architectural vernacular of the village. 

The development will also include a children’s play area as well as a network of footpaths and cycle lanes to connect residents with local amenities.

In keeping with Hill’s goals of sustainable development, each of the properties will utilise a range of energy-efficient features including air-source heat pumps and underfloor heating.

Hill is working with an independent ecologist to ensure the sensitive management of the site to preserve its biodiversity, and as a result the development, will incorporate linear and meadow parks to further enhance the natural beauty of the area.

Andy Hill OBE, group chief executive at The Hill Group, commented: “This remarkable site represents an excellent opportunity to protect and enhance the scenic natural environment.

“Having successfully delivered similar developments across Cambridge and throughout the Southeast of England, we look forward to applying our experience to deliver sustainable new homes in this sought-after location.”
