This spacious 1,651 sq ft 4/5 bed features split-level interiors and outdoor space.
Have you ever watched an episode of Grand Designs and thought 'I'd love to do that someday, but wouldn't really know where to start'? Have you ever refurbished an existing property to make it contemporary and modern on the inside, but have had to leave the outside untouched? Are you looking for a home that suits your needs and reflects your taste? Are you looking to save some money and get a home which is real value for money?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then custom build might be the option for you!
Custom build is where a developer builds a new build structural and watertight shell which the individual then fits out themselves (or gets the developer to do it for them). You save money and get the design you want.
Unboxed has already done a lot of the hard work; found the land, got planning permission, dealt with gas, electric and water companies, worked out how the homes will get through building regulations, made sure that the construction is sound and of good quality and thought about design possibilities.
Custom build gives you the financial flexibility to spend your money on things that matter to you and spend less on things that don't.
Why buy a home fitted out with someone else's kitchen choice when you can have your own? Why buy a home with carpet, when you really want wooden floors? It leaves you, the customer, in control; do you want 3 larger bedrooms each with an en-suite, or would you prefer an open plan kitchen diner? Do you want a granite worktop or a timber one? Do you prefer mid-century modern or scandi? It's your home, you deserve to live in it the way you want to.
Unboxed have partnered with local architects, Poulsom Middlehurst, to create Blenheim Grove, an original, innovative terrace in Peckham Rye - only 10 minutes by train to London Bridge.
The interior of the home has been designed using the trademarked multi-award winning Solidspace DNA inside, a split-level interlocking layout with double-height voids which cleverly removes the need for hallways and stair landings and allows each room to borrow light and volume from the other. It creates a feeling of spaciousness and an experience unlike any other you have had in a home.
With savings of up to 30% compared to a similar house in the area - not only will you save yourself money, you'll also have an amazing experience along the way.
"We'd been living in a ground floor flat a third of the size so to move here was a dream come true. The house is well designed with quality fittings, excellent light levels and lots of storage space."
