House-Hunters in Awe of Aura Showhome


A striking new home, The Rossellino, has been unveiled by Countryside at Great Kneighton, in Cambridge.

Ideal for those searching for a property to impress, the new show home is part of the Villas collection at Aura, and has been designed to include striking contemporary features and an outstanding level of attention to detail. Expertly dressed by JSP Interiors, the luxurious design lends inspiration to prospective purchasers and provides an insight into what one of these exceptional homes is like first hand.

Situated in the new urban village of Great Kneighton, amongst green open spaces and tree-line avenues, the Rossellino villa has been designed to complement their impressive surroundings.  The striking four storey, four double bedroom villa offers 3,186 sq ft of living space, featuring double-height ceilings and full height glazing.  This home also includes a garden and integrated double garage.

Mandi Boydell, Creative Director at JSP Interiors, comments: “The Rossellino is a wonderfully spacious family home. When entering the generous hallway, you experience a strong sense of arrival with key walls coloured subtle tones. Full height double doors lead into the kitchen, dining and family area, and each area has been zoned to show how it works for a modern family. A white colour scheme combined with the five metre high ceilings gives the space drama, emphasising the amazing light from the south facing rear elevated windows.”

Mandi continues: “The luxurious living room is found through double doors on the first floor, and overlooks the ground floor. The room’s colours reflect the subtle Art Deco furniture references, with charcoal, warm taupe, emerald green accents, chrome and acrylic all used to create a sumptuous space. The lavish master suite has been designed to emulate a seven star hotel bedroom. Using elegant silk curtains, sumptuous cushions, a pair of sage linen sofas and warm, rich chocolate glass furniture with antique brass accents, this room indulges all who stay in it. The focal point of the room is the high bed with luxurious bedding that you just want to jump into!”


David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Central region, comments: “These impressive Villas at Great Kneighton are ideal for those who are searching for a striking new home. This show home gives house-hunters the opportunity to be inspired, and visualise what their own home at Great Kneighton could look like. Residents are also ideally located within easy access of Cambridge, and all that this historical city has to offer.”
