The Inner Circle is the rich central sphere of the city. In the center, is the royal palace, and around it are the homes of the wealthy and important members of Athenian society. This is likely to include, the other royal families (those who are not currently on the throne), the noble families, the families of the senators and courtiers, and anyone rich enough to own a property in the richest part of town.

The oldest private residence in all of Athenia, the Antonis estate is large and expansive. In accordance with their belief in dignity and tradition, the buildings have only ever been repaired and never rebuilt. The repairs, however, have always been done with a practised and skilful hand, creating a home that is historical and fascinating in its detail, rather than one that looks renovated and out of date. The Antonis favour roaming lands out the back of their Athenian estate, beyond the borders of the city. Wide and expansive for riding the retired war horses that are the family's personal steeds.
While Marikas is the longest line of royalty in the Athenian kingdom, their home might not impress as much, other than its size and wealth it communicates. The Marikas line know well the importance of appearances and, as such, have renovated, rebuilt and redesigned their home in the capitol on several occasions. The manor house often looks brand new, with the latest fashions and designs pouring from every room. The interior decoration of the home clearly indicates that the Marikas family wish to impress upon others the power they hold now, as opposed to the history that gave it to them. The Marikas mansion is famous for its gardens. As the longest standing royal House, their home has been sitting on a large expanse of land, despite being within the capital's walls and the expensive, finely cultivated gardens only serve to impress this fact upon all who visit the flower and bloom heaven that awaits out of the back of the Marikas homestead.
Stravos are the newest to the name of royalty but their home does not offer such an impression. Through business connections, Lord Keikelius was able to purchase an old concert hall in the very centre of the Inner Circle. The property is a short carriage ride from the Dikastirio and the Royal Palati, as if to impress upon all that might visit how the recency of their royalty is of no consequence. Within the walls of the Stravos home, everything is of high end value but also holds an exotic theme, with the regal and expensive furnishings having been imported from all over the known realms. Due to their position in the centre of the city, the personal gardens of the Stravos home are limited but each flowerbed or topiary display is created to impress, despite their smaller size.
