Plenty of space
CHARLES DAVIES bought his modular Urban House in Kidbrooke Village, Greenwich on Brexit Day in June 2016. The houses now cost £915,000.
“I’m sharing with my brother Billy,” says Charles. “We are living in part of London, yet it doesn’t feel like it. It’s an incredibly spacious, well-designed home, with loads of storage for a family and space for bikes outside. You don’t notice it’s a modular house. We’ve a spacious ground-floor kitchen and dining area, two firstfloor bedrooms and a living room and two more bedrooms on the top floor.” rest of the living space. We’ve had loads of interested people knocking on the door. It’s a great advert for my work. Alex persuaded me to put more of my work in it. “Living with the exposed timber is lovely. It’s warm, natural, and we have a lot of outdoor space.”
