The Cambridge Neighborhood


It is really easy to zoom down Kuebler and miss this gem of a neighborhood. If you ask Salemites about the Cambridge Neighborhood, most won’t even know where it is even though the neighborhood is 30 years old. Located off of Kuebler and Battlecreek, commuters will like the Cambridge neighborhood. Cambridge is four subdivisions: Cambridge Meadows, Cambridge Woods, Cambridge Heights, and Cambridge Crest.

Cambridge Woods was the first phase built in the 1970-1980 time frame. Homes can have a contemporary flair with Shed style architecture dominant in this phase, but the defining feature of this portion of Cambridge is the heavily wooded nature of the properties. It is a “living in nature” feel to these homes. The names of the streets will make you feel patriotic with names like Jamestown, Freedom Loop, Independence, and Pilgrim. It is similar to the first phase of Woodscape or Cinnamon Hill which also has a woodsy section of the neighborhood. This part of the neighborhood has homes that are in the $500,000+ range.

Cambridge Heights and Cambridge Crest are more upscale: larger homes and larger lots. Street names sound like English royalty with Kensington, Bradford, and Chauncey. Homes were built here in the late 1990s and are larger and more upscale in amenities. Granite counters, extensive brickwork, and hardwood floors are common upgrades in these homes. As such, home prices go up as well. Homes in this section of the neighborhood are $600,000+ depending on size.



Neighborhood Life

Cambridge is located just off Kuebler so one of its main attractions is easy highway access. Hanging out on the weekend in the neighborhood, you might see boaters getting things ready for a run to Detroit Lake, several dogs going out for their daily walk, and kids riding bikes on the street. You could also see the annual neighborhood parade through the neighborhood for Independence Day. It also has a community pool that can be joined with a membership.

The neighborhood has a desirable school feeder system in Pringle Elementary, Judson Middle, and South Salem High Schools.  It is also very close to Costco on Kuebler for easy access for Costco lovers.

You can see some of the types of homes in the neighborhood here (that we sold as seller agents).
