Live green with Hill in 2018!


Sustainability is part of the Hill ethos, and we are committed to creating sustainable new homes and communities which are environmentally-friendly places to live, and we actively encourage partners to find innovative ways to promote the benefits of sustainability.

Virido is a development of award-winning sustainable new houses and apartments located in Great Kneighton, Cambridge. The collection of 208 zero-carbon homes were all designed to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5, and ensure that residents can enjoy a greener lifestyle with minimal effort. The sustainable features of these new homes include: triple glazing; low solar gain glazing; smart meters; a drying room; a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system; solar PV panels and more – allowing those who live at Virido to enjoy a healthier, greener lifestyle!

We have one final home at Virido, which is now ready to move in to. The three-bedroom homes benefits from a private terrace which can be accessed from  the large second floor living room, two en-suite shower rooms and the convenience of having the Cambridge Guided bus-way on its doorstep.

Another of our sustainable developments in Cambridge is Athena, located in the University of Cambridge’s newest neighbourhood, Eddington. Each home celebrates sustainability as the new normal, with solar panels and triple glazing, and all homes have been built to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. Eddington also contains plenty of sustainable initiatives which will benefit residents living at Athena, including a main energy centre to provide heating and hot water to provide heat and hot water to every home, the UK’s largest water recycling system, and one of the largest underground bin systems in the UK.

Athena will provide studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses, with a selection of these homes now available to buy! Some of these beautiful new homes are also available with Help to Buy – meaning you will only need a 5% deposit.
