Welcome to Athena
Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom and inspiration, and the patron goddess of heroic endeavour – and we think, a fitting name for Cambridge and these stunning new homes.
Athena is part of the ambitious project by the University of Cambridge to deliver a new neighbourhood for Cambridge; one that provides new homes both for sale and for university key workers and staff; a sustainable community offering a high quality of life.
Located just two miles by bike from Cambridge’s market square, and close in size to ninety full size football pitches or 150 times the size of Trafalgar Square, this new district will be called Eddington; so named after the renowned astronomer, mathematician and physicist Sir Arthur Eddington, a Cambridge alumnus and resident in the local area in the early part of the twentieth century.
Within and around Eddington will be a range of community facilities to support this new neighborhood which includes the University of Cambridge Primary School, Storey’s Field Centre, a Sainsbury’s supermarket, smaller retail shops around the market square, a 4 star hotel, a healthcare centre, sports pitches and parklands.
The new University of Cambridge Primary School which opened on Eddington Avenue in September 2015, supports primary education for children living at Eddington and the nearby area. For further information on the University of Cambridge Primary School, please click here. The homes at Athena are within the catchment area of the University of Cambridge Primary School.
Athena comprises studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses, all constructed to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5.
Working with award-winning architects Alison Brooks and Pollard Thomas Edwards, the apartments and houses at Athena will demonstrate all the qualities that have made us WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year: passion, attention to detail and quality of design.
The Athena Sales & Marketing Suite is open daily from 10am – 5.30pm so do come in for a chat with our friendly sales team and a look around our stunning show apartments.
