CrowdProperty Comments

The unique design of a chalet bungalow set in large gardens looking over open fields is a USP to this project. Furthermore, Six Mile Bottom is seen to be an excellent location for investment with Cambridge, accompanied by London being the only two cities in the UK seeing capital growth of over 50% since 2007; namely 53% and 58% respectively. (Hometrack UK All City House Price Index 65 cities snapshot - June 2018).
