A sustainable neighbourhood of 42 state-of-the-art homes with community facilities and beautiful shared gardens

As a cohousing development, Marmalade Lane is a real community – a place to know and be friends with your neighbours. And as well as superb energy-efficient, architect-designed modern homes, residents benefit from extensive shared facilities and a large shared garden.

Cohousing is a way of life in which residents not only get to know their neighbours and enjoy a real sense of community, but jointly manage their living environment together.  As well as their own private home, each resident household benefits from shared spaces and facilities that enrich the living experience and encourage a more social way of life.

As a cohousing development, Marmalade Lane is the product of an innovative design process in which members of K1 Cohousing, drawn from all ages and backgrounds, have been involved from the outset. All residents are members of Cambridge Cohousing Ltd, have a stake in the common parts and contribute to the management of the community.

The growing membership of K1 Cambridge Cohousing comes from all ages and walks of life and includes families with young children, retired couples and young professionals.  It includes people of 11 nationalities, longstanding Cambridge residents and people relocating from elsewhere. Visit the K1 Cambridge Cohousing website to find out more about Marmalade Lane’s future residents.
