**

The Milne Mews are a collection of superb 3 bedroom city homes in this prime location. These interesting properties provide a generous 1,590sq ft of accommodation and have the benefit of an integral garage which also has space for cycle storage.

These homes are an ideal home for young families or downsizers, perhaps for a ‘lock and leave’ arrangement.

Set over three floors, these homes provide 3 outside spaces, 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

On entering the property there is a good sized entrance hall with the door to the integral garage and a door to the rear courtyard; the first floor provides the bedroom accommodation – with bedroom 3 having a lovely corner window and this room is positioned next to the bathroom; bedroom 2 has a full height window and an en suite shower room; the master bedroom also has an en suite shower room, a full wall of wardrobes and sliding doors to a terrace. Also on this floor is a generous double cupboard.

The second floor is the living space – this room provides over 30’ of excellent space ideal for entertaining. The kitchen is positioned at one end with windows to 3 sides; the room continues providing plenty of space for a living area and then sliding doors to the roof terrace.

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 rated Outstanding by Ofsted and Nursery on its 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.
