Investors looking to purchase a new home in the sophisticated and prosperous city have the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy at Berkeley's landmark development, Cambridge Riverside, which is one of the last remaining properties of its size available for development so close to the centre.

Fourteen properties are currently available to purchase in Brooke House, a modern and stylish six storey building located on Kingsley Walk which provide striking views towards Midsummer Common and the tranquil waters of the River Cam.

The apartments available to purchase at Brooke House include one and two bedroom apartments which all offer quality features and outside space in the form of a balcony or terrace.

Brooke House is named after the renowned First World War poet and King's College Cambridge student Rupert Brooke who was known for his sonnets including The Dead and The Soldier.

Offering a variety of layouts designed to appeal to a wide range of buyers, the apartments are spacious in design and completed to a high specification. Most properties feature living / dining areas that are open plan to the fully fitted kitchens to provide the ideal place to entertain guests or simply relax at the end of a busy day. All master bedrooms include fitted wardrobes and in the two and three bedroom properties, there is an en-suite shower room.

Buyers at Cambridge Riverside will all be able to make the most of the on-site concierge service and the residents' gym. There is also an underground car park and secure bike racks to encourage people to enjoy cycling around the city. The development also includes space for an office or retail facility on Newmarket Road.

Tina Dedman, Berkeley's Director of Sales and Marketing comments: "Cambridge Riverside offers a very rare chance for people to own a breathtaking modern home in the very heart of this exciting, vibrant and prosperous city.

"Demand for homes at Cambridge Riverside is high despite difficult market conditions and this development is leading the way with the apartments at Brooke House selling quickly because investment opportunities of this high calibre are few and far between in this historic city."

Brooke House is already proving popular with a wide range of buyers all eager to live within a few minutes of the historic city centre and its world class shops including Calvin Klein, Rigby & Peller and Kurt Geiger. The city's rich and varied cultural attractions including the lively Corn Exchange and the highly acclaimed Cambridge Arts Theatre, as well as an endless selection of restaurants from formal Michelin star dining at Midsummer House to relaxed café culture.

Brooke House is set within a series of landscaped courtyards at Cambridge Riverside and is surrounded by a series of buildings which are named after Cambridge University alumni including Charles Darwin, Christopher Marlowe, John Maynard Keynes, Charles Kingsley and Isaac Newton.

Each building will have its own distinctive character and will provide access to Midsummer Common and onto the river itself.

Cambridge Riverside is also ideally located for the business community, being only a short drive from Cambridge's world famous science parks including Silicon Fen, home to ARM and Microsoft, and Cambridge Science Park, Europe's longest-serving and largest centre for commercial research and development.

The development is also perfect for commuters, with excellent rail connections both regionally to Newmarket and Stansted Airport and direct into London via both Kings Cross and Liverpool Street stations in just under an hour.
