More Than 250 New Homes In Ely Development

More than 250 new homes are being built in Ely in Orchard Greens just off Cam Drive. The Lantern Croft Development by Taylor Wimpey has been sympathetically designed with two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

According to the Taylor Wimpey website, the new housing development will be ready to launch in August 2021 – so if you’re interested in buying you won’t have to wait long. There will be a couple of show homes onsite to help potential buyers get a feel for the interiors available.

Good links to the city

The Orchards Green development is just a 30 minute drive from Cambridge, the historic city. They are also close to Ely station and just 2 minutes from the A10.

Aside from being great for commuters to Cambridge, having good links to the city means these properties should remain in demand and retain their value.
