Cardea is perfect base for city commuters and families too

26 October 2020

The thriving Cardea development in Stanground, close to the heart of Peterborough, is perfect for commuters looking to cut their journey times locally and for those looking to travel to London.

Persimmon Homes has enjoyed consistent interest in Cardea since building began and as the last but one phase of development progresses, the modern homes are still attracting buyers from across a broad spectrum of the market.

Senior sales advisor Ellie Khan has been at Cardea since January 2017 and cannot speak highly enough of the development and the community she has seen grow up there. “This was my first development with Persimmon Homes and I am determined to see it through to the end,” she said.

“I have enjoyed watching the development and the community grow over the years and helping people on their way to owning a home here. It is lovely when people who bought early on pass by and give us a wave in the sales office!

“We have sold to all kinds of people across the market. Cardea is perfectly situated and offers a broad choice of properties so we have welcomed everyone from young professionals, people buying their first starter home to family upsizers and older downsizers – literally everyone.

“I think that has helped the community develop naturally and has added to people’s sense of belonging here at Cardea.

“There are good schools for children of all ages, a supermarket and food outlets on the development too, so people do not need to look too far to have their needs met.”

The Persimmon Homes development is perfectly situated just four miles to the south east of Peterborough and its excellent services and transport links.

Peterborough is a vibrant, lively city with fashionable shopping centres such as Queensgate and Rivergate, numerous cafes, bars and restaurants, along with a thriving nightlife. For a unique shopping experience Cathedral Square in the heart of the city hosts street entertainment, farmers’ markets and al fresco cafes.

Cardea is easily accessible from the A1 and Peterborough boasts excellent links for commuters. London is just 50 minutes away via the East Coast Mainline and you can also use the Thameslink service direct from Horsham to Peterborough from Mondays to Saturdays.

Persimmon Homes is currently offering a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Cardea, with prices starting from £140,000.
