A great article published in the Cambridge Independent this month! Read all about how the arrival of 25 contemporary apartments at The Old Tannery in Ely heralds eagerly-awaited opportunities for prospective homebuyers looking to live in the heart of this historic cathedral city.

The stunning project by award-winning Cambridgeshire developer Laragh Homes has seen an increasingly high demand for this exciting new development, with more than 50% of the designer loft-style apartments already reserved off plan.

Perfectly positioned on Fore Hill in Ely’s vibrant city centre, within striking distance of the riverside and rail station, The Old Tannery’s beautiful one and two bedroom apartments present high-specification luxury living with private parking and some spectacular views to one of the UK’s most famous cathedrals.

Answering the call for quality countryside homes with strong city links, The Old Tannery features one studio, seven one-bedroom and 17 two-bedroom properties designed by prestigious architects Haysom Ward Miller, in a well-connected location with excellent road and rail links to Cambridge, London and beyond.

“Lifestyle balance is a key factor for many homebuyers this year,” said Laragh Director Hannah Greenhow. “The abundance of amenities that Ely has to offer, with restaurants, bars, cafes, riverside walks, entertainment, independent shopping and farmers markets, combined with Cambridge just on the doorstep via a swift 15-minute train journey, makes these outstanding apartments particularly appealing to local people and first-time buyers who want contemporary high-level homes with good travel access to suit their Cambridgeshire lifestyle.”

The combination of incentives such as Help to Buy and the new 95% mortgage scheme also means that new quality new homes are being snapped up well ahead of completion dates, and The Old Tannery is no exception. Currently, half of these sought-after apartments have been sold, with high level enquiries at each new building stage.

With further releases to be announced soon by Laragh, plus plans for a show home and the first homeowners looking to move in before Christmas, The Old Tannery is proving to be an incredibly popular lifestyle choice for forward-thinking homebuyers.
