Environ Communities is pleased to announce the completion of its new development ‘Keepers Court’ at Kings Hill in Kent. The new properties have followed the principles of ‘biophilia’, which refers to humans’ innate preference for nature with our DNA programmed to seek out spaces that allow us to connect with the natural world. Biophilic Design incorporates fresh air, daylight and natural materials, with a view to creating a more pleasurable environment in which to live.
The benefits of biophilia are vast and over 50 studies have been published that associate biophilic elements as primary influences for faster recovery rates for patients, decreased dependency on medication, reduced stress, and improved emotional wellness.
The five bedroom properties at Keepers Court are immensely light with significant expanses of glass used throughout. The large picture window in the upstairs landing and sky lights in the roof allow light to flood down on to the landing and stairs. The Landings are double height and some master bedrooms have cathedral ceilings, to continue the light and airy feel.
Natural materials are used throughout the properties, including oak wood flooring and granite Pyram kitchen worktops. The ground floors have a seamless continuation of the indoor space outdoors. This has been achieved by floor to ceiling sliding doors off the living areas leading to the garden, with same level flooring inside as out.
A heat recovery ventilation system is used in every property, which provides a constant supply of fresh air that is warmed via the heat exchanger, whilst removing stale, humid and odorous air, making the homes exceptionally pleasant places in which to live.
The gardens and landscaping throughout the scheme is an eye catching feature of Keepers Court. Award- winning landscape designer Julie Johnson has created easy maintenance ‘fitted’ rear gardens that flow from the house, so they become an extra room in the warmer months. They are attractively landscaped, using plants suitable for the region and climate and include a raised vegetable bed for those owners wanting to grow their own produce.
Five bedroom homes start from £659,000.
