This month’s trophy home is Kaolin Court, a group of new homes in Forest Hill with communal living and neighbourliness at its core.
Each building is angled to allow the maximum amount of sun into the gardens, creating a striking series of vaulted roofs. Each has its own patio area and outside bike storage, with direct access to the shared, central courtyard garden.
This three bedroom house, including a master with en suite, lies to the back of the courtyard. All the houses face inwards, but have been cleverly designed so as not to overlook each other. Long floor-to-ceiling windows fill the inside spaces with natural light.
The development has been designed to be extremely efficient to run with underfloor heating, high levels of insulation and triple glazing.
