We are happy to offer you an exciting opportunity to live in the UK’s largest mixed use carbon neutral development, Bedzed.
Bedzed was constructed in 2002 with the aim of setting the future template for environmentally friendly construction and living. Ten years later, the project has proven its worth, establishing a strong community, and producing some truly inspiring energy saving statistics. We are offering a rare opportunity to live in this amazing development.
The property is built with an emphasis on space and light, with windows throughout. As well as promoting a sense of wellbeing by bathing the whole house in light, these windows serve a very practical purpose, with large windows at the front creating a sun space, which makes use of a southerly aspect to passively heat the building. All windows are triple glazed, which along with heavy duty insulation, contribute to a recorded 81% reduction in energy use for heating amongst residents. You can find here the story of this amazing eco project.
Enter through the double height completely glazed front of the building on the ground floor where you will find two double bedrooms and a generous bathroom. Continue up the stairs to the first floor, past the third double bedroom and into the breath-taking living room, with fantastic views out of its fully glazed front. Pass through the internal glazed balcony and out onto the sky bridge which takes you over onto your private sky garden, perfect for summer barbecues.
The development benefits from a strong emphasis on community, with abundant shared green areas. Surveys show that residents know twice as many neighbours as the UK average, and this is reflected in the convivial atmosphere on the pedestrianised streets, and community activities including frequent farmers markets.
Public transport links are fantastic from Hackbridge station only a five minute walk away.
The trains are every 30 min and take you to Victoria in 28 min, to Herne Hill in 19 min, to Blackfriars in 32 min, and to London St Pancras International in 41 min.
Should you be reliant on a car, but wish to keep your carbon footprint low, City Car Club operate a popular car share, with vehicles on site. Or why not go electric, and take advantage of priority parking, and charging stations throughout the development?
