Cheffins and local Ely developer, Palace Green Homes, have brought to market the first phase of its Eden Square development in the heart of the historic City of Ely.

Eden Square is an urban oasis of 13 new homes, where modern meets the city’s historic charm with carefully selected one to four-bed terraced houses that complement Ely’s rich heritage and nearby fen countryside.

Previously the site of Paradise Pools, it has been transformed into a contemporary residential quarter with eco-friendly homes and elegant, minimalist architecture, creating a modern yet character-infused community.

Set adjacent to the City Centre within acres of the East Cambridgeshire countryside, Eden Square is a small development lined with mature trees, open community space and greenery. Bordered by a grass parkland and evergreen shrubs, it’s the perfect place for nearby residents to enjoy picnics and walks amongst its cityscape backdrop, outlined by the Cathedral with its magnificent tower and lantern.

The development has been designed to feel spacious despite its central location. Several of the properties include gardens and terraces, some with views of the Ely Cathedral Tower.

Each home benefits from a ‘fabric first’ approach and green energy technology, such as air source heat pumps. The biodiverse haven that encompasses the development, paired with its aesthetic and sustainable beauty and location in the heart of the city, is what makes Eden Square so desirable.

Paul Remington, Chairman of Palace Green Homes, said: “We are delighted to be able to invite potential home buyers to our highly anticipated Eden Square development and look forward to seeing it completed and fully occupied!”

Richard Booth, Director at Cheffins, adds: “We are pleased to be working with Palace Green Homes on the launch of this contemporary city development, offering an array of stylish and eco-friendly new homes to suit a range of buyers."

Prices of the first phase start from £275,000 for a one-bedroom home. Viewings are on an appointment only basis - to book an appointment to view the show home, please contact Cheffins Ely office on: 01353 654900 or
