A new place

to call home

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 lifetime homes and apartments inspired by the city’s historic character, built to award-winning designs. Part of an ambitious project by the University of Cambridge to deliver a new neighbourhood for its city; the new district is known as 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.

Eddington provides new homes both for sale and for university key workers and staff; a sustainable community offering a high quality of life. Located just 10 minutes 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, Eddington is an exciting new place to call home.

Athena is exemplar period homes designed for the 21st century; homes and apartments for Cambridge today, and tomorrow. Athena is a place of enduring quality anchored by the essential elements of lifelong well-being, and an investment in a sustainable future.More about Athena

Right at the

heart of it all

The University of Cambridge's vision for Eddington is to create a new district and extension to the City that is centred around a mixed academic and urban community: a place that is sustainable, long-lasting and ambitious, offering a high quality of life.

Eddington's market square is the heart of this new neighbourhood, providing a natural meeting point with a range of retail, leisure and community facilities. A supermarket, shops, restaurants, a hotel, a health centre, a primary school sponsored by the University of Cambridge, and an outstanding community centre are all part of life at Eddington.
