Garrington East provides a Cambridgeshire home search service, covering the entire county. Our property finders are all based within the region and have extensive knowledge and access to the best properties on and off market.
The county offers a diverse economy which ranges from a large agricultural focus to the north of the region, to the high technology and pharmaceutical companies clustered around Cambridge, with many science and business parks including the world famous Cambridge Science Park .
Cambridgeshire enjoys a low unemployment rate in comparison to the UK as a whole, and is one of the fastest growing regions in terms of population growth and commercial activity, which when combined with excellent transport links means that a Cambridgeshire home search is an ever more popular request.
House prices in the region are driven by economic activity, demand and supply and communications by road, rail and air, these can range significantly as a consequence.
Those seeking a rural location are likely to be drawn to the north of the county, which is generally more agricultural with a low popluation density offering country homes set in generous grounds. This is especially evident towards the Fens where the rich soil and flat terrain provide an ideal climate for arable farming. The beautiful, historic city of Ely provides a charming centre-piece to the area, yet has the amenities and transport links that would be expected from a modern city.
Peterborough is a strong regional centre enjoying a convenient location adjacent to the A1, affording easy access south to London. Rail journeys to the capital are now achieved in a little over 50 minutes and this has opened up this city to commuters considering a Cambridgeshire home search. The town is home to many large employers including Thomas Cook, Pedigree Foods and Perkins Engines.
Cambridge with its world famous University together with its pioneering research and development industries is seen as the jewel in the crown for those on a Cambridgeshire home search. House prices are much higher than the county average and the thriving local economy means the number of people relocating from London to Cambridge is rising.
