Development Information

Bedrooms: 1-4 bedrooms

Location: Virido lives at the heart of Great Kneighton, a blossoming residential area in Trumpington, accessed off Long Road, on the southern edge of Cambridge city. As well as providing much needed new homes, its green spaces and community amenities provide the essential positive elements for a rounded lifestyle.

Another central element of Great Kneighton is the brand new 120-acre Country Park. It’s a wonderful public open space that contains woodland, four ponds, a bird reserve, allotments, playing fields for the new secondary school, a range of play areas and one and a half miles of footpaths. To date there has been over 14,000 new trees planted in the park, including eighty large semi-mature varieties.

At its heart, and within striking distance of Virido, is the expanding Cambridge Biomedical Campus, which is set to be a truly global hub and a home to AstraZeneca, Papworth Hospital, Glaxosmithkline and Cancer Research amongst many others. Virido is conveniently positioned for an easy commute to this new innovation hub and the city beyond, all easily reached on foot, by bicycle or Guided Bus.

Travel links: Virido is conveniently positioned close to the Guided Busway providing the quickest and greenest way to travel.
