Three very desirable homes devoted to ‘sustainable luxury’ have been built in Clareville Street, South Kensington.
Combining the best of contemporary comfort and design with environmental responsible building practices, geothermal boreholes are being used in the properties – the same method employed by high profile individuals like the Queen and Elton John.
In each house, an entire floor will be dedicated to a master suite with private sitting room, his and her marble bathrooms and a dressing room decked out with walnut wardrobes and bespoke joinery.
Alongside the homes’ green credentials, urban luxuries have crept in, including a double reception room and kitchen-breakfast area both leading onto private terraces; a cinema/media room with a wet bar; wine cellar; and off-street parking with a secure garage.
The houses range in size from just over 3,500-square feet to 3,700-square feet and from £5.4 to £5.6 million.
Selling agent Richard Gutteridge from Knight Frank’s Sloane Avenue office (www.knightfrank.com) says, ‘The houses’ green features are an added benefit on top of very high quality building specifications from the developers Morpheus on behalf of the Princedale Partnership.
‘These are classic useable homes with modern exteriors and all the gadgets buyers require these days, like air conditioning, wooden flooring, under-floor heating and good garaging.’
The homes are enhanced by their location as well, adds Mr Gutteridge – in a quiet backwater of South Kensington and only a five-minute walk from Gloucester Road Tube.’
