This superb home has been designed, constructed and built to suit the needs of modern day living.

Each home at Athena has been meticulously designed and laid out to provide a versatile living arrangement that will suit many different city lifestyles. Catering for busy family lives, these superb homes are easy to live in, with excellent low maintenance fittings and situated within this sustainable development.

These homes are laid out over three floors – with an entrance hall, two reception rooms, rear lobby with utility room and WC and a double length garage. The kitchen and living room have superb full height triple glazed windows, and the living room has sliding doors to both front and rear – opening to a small area at the front, and the rear opens to the enclosed courtyard.

There is a further living room to the first floor – providing 12’2 x 20’4, this room is exceptionally versatile. There are doors into the room at both ends, meaning that the room can be easily divided – so could be one full length living room, or a bedroom at one end and study or snug at the other. The rear of the room has sliding doors opening to the first floor terrace, which has steps down to the courtyard garden. In addition, the first floor is home to Bedroom 3 – this room also has full height windows and is a lovely bright room. The family bathroom is on this floor and has the benefit of a bath and separate shower cubicle.

Continue up to the second floor where you will find the master bedroom suite – a room of 14’1 x 12’10 and benefitting from a generous bank of built in wardrobes and its own en suite bathroom; Bedroom 2 is equally as spacious – 12’2 x 12’10 and has a full run of wardrobes and en suite shower room.

As well as the superb design, this home is finished to an excellent specification – a signature of the developer – Hill, who is a 5* House Builder and multi award winner.

Athena is perfectly placed for connectivity into the city centre. Situated on the popular west side of Cambridge, there are many amenities within easy reach from Sainsburys (and future shops) within the Eddington area to those in Girton and along the Huntingdon Road and into the city centre. Waitrose at Trumpington is just around 6.5 miles away.

For schooling Athena is ideally positioned – not only does it have the superb University of Cambridge Primary School and Nursery on it’s doorstep, there is also a wealth of schooling available nearby – from the private schools of St John’s College and King’s College Schools are just 1.5miles, The Leys, St Faith’s and The Perse are all around 3.5 miles all towards the city centre.
Access around the city to the south side is also extremely convenient – with the M11 southbound only a mile away – making commuting to Addenbrooke’s Hospital/Biomedical Campus (along with AstraZeneca, The Papworth Trust and the MRC) a straight forward connection. Slightly further along the M11 the A505 turning connects you to Granta Park and The Babraham Research Park.

Athena forms part of Eddington, the new district to the west of Cambridge. Eddington has been designed with sustainability in mind. Innovative measures that are unique to Eddington include:

• The largest rainwater harvesting and recycling system in the UK
• A district heating network – this centralised energy centre uses gas to generate power and heat for the homes at Eddington and is a vital part of the sustainability strategy.
• An underground bin system – an innovative waste disposal utilising a series of stainless steel bins for general waste and recycling, a method ensuring no unsightly bins outside Eddington’s homes.
