Saturday 8 August sees the launch of a new show home in Kent which has been constructed to ultra-energy-efficient Passive house standards.

Gold Property Developments Limited has been working in partnership with Inside Out Architect and BoConcept Canterbury on the new Fairbrook Grove scheme in Faversham. The private development of 14 Passive house homes will feature both sustainable design and high-quality craftsmanship.

The contemporary design of the eight detached and six semi-detached homes creates a modern contrast with, but complements, the existing community. Built with natural materials and incredibly energy-efficient, the south-facing homes are perfect for those yearning to be in touch with nature. There will be no through- or circular traffic in the new residential area, keeping its natural peace and quiet and safe environment for family life.

Residents of this new scheme can expect to see a huge reduction on energy bills from the eco-conscious design which includes high performance triple glazing, air tightness, mechanical ventilation and space heating systems.

“The landscaping has been thought through to create a place where you actually want to be,” said Bianca Valido Leach, director at Inside Out Architecture. “The homes will also be a comfortable, stable temperature all year round, with hardly any need to turn on the radiators.”

Fairbrook GroveThese landscape-led family homes introduce an exciting new way of modern living, cleverly combining both privacy and a sense of community.

“This is a really exciting development that has something to offer everyone, from young professionals and families to downsizers,” said Annie Foster Firth, sales director at Gold Property Developments. “We have guided the design and layout to make the most of the beautiful woodland site, and foster a real sense of community among the residents.”

Rachel Sanders, BoConcept Canterbury franchisee/business owner and her team have worked tirelessly to finish off the first home to be launched by the furnishing of the show house with contemporary Danish furniture, lighting and accessories from BoConcept’s collection.

She commented: “We have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Gold Property Developments on the Fairbrook Grove scheme and being given the opportunity to furnish this beautiful home. We have been able to provide a unique service and product offer to this unique development – possibly the first commercial residential development of this kind in the country. The Gold team have been a delight to work with, with a very similar outlook on quality, design and creating something that works well for the ultimate owners and the environment”.

The development is located in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Faversham, Canterbury and Whitstable with excellent road and rail links to the surrounding area. London is accessible by car in under 90 minutes, and rail services from Faversham reach London St Pancras or Victoria in as little as 76 minutes.

Prices start at £590,000 for a link-detached three-bedroom home.
