Berkeley Homes has unveiled a customisable home at Kidbrooke Village in Greenwich designed to address the need for higher density, low rise family homes.
The concept called the Urban House is a three or four-bedroom home that adapts to different lifestyles, aimed at those buying for the first time, raising a family, considering downsizing or who need to manage a disability.
According to Berkeley , the design maximises space and is efficient to run as the building materials used, potentially, cut up to 25% off utility bills – 80% off gas and 30% off water.
The Urban House has a roof terrace with 360-degree views, off-street parking with electric car charging points and provides covered cycle storage.
Charles Davies, one of the first buyers of an Urban House at Kidbrooke Village, said: “I was drawn to the unique design.
“It has all the best aspects of a flat – a terrace, balcony and view, plus all the benefits of a house – space to park a car, room for a family and also a good area with great schools, parks and shops.”
Berkeley Homes divisional managing director Karl Whiteman said: “The Urban House offers you a home that is flexible, economical and beautifully designed. It has light, space and character.
“It can be adapted to meet people’s needs as their lives change – whether that’s caring for an elderly relative or downsizing once the kids have flown the nest.
“And that stability means you can form long-term friendships in the neighbourhood and really feel a part of your community.”
Urban House residents at Kidbrooke Village also have access to facilities at Blackheath Quarter including a swimming pool, fitness suite, residents’ cinema, business suite and a 24-hour concierge service.
Available now, three-bedroom homes start at £800,000.
