Hanover Close in Bar Hill is a development of 28 apartments with shared gardens, private car parking and guest facilities. Located in the village centre, the properties are close to local shops, post office, chemist, church and doctor’s surgery. There is also a regular bus service into the city of Cambridge, just 20 minutes away.
One of the benefits of this development is your professional on-site manager who looks after the buildings and grounds maintenance and repairs, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it. There’s plenty of opportunity to get involved with the resident community, as the local school (with whom the estate has a close partnership) offers regular concerts, talks, coffee afternoons and events. A chiropody clinic also takes place every six weeks.
Bar Hill is a village around five miles north of Cambridge. It has a shopping mall with a large supermarket, library (with a Post Office inside) and pub, as well as a village green and sports field, which is the location for the annual village fête. There is also an 18 hole golf course and hotel.
