Planet-positive homes in the heart of Walthamstow Village.
Ten unique, beautifully-crafted homes on Orford Road that are setting an international benchmark in planet-positive development.
Homes that are not just carbon neutral but carbon negative over their entire lifetime. Not just low-energy but energy positive. Not just less waste. Zero waste. No development globally* has achieved these combined standards before.
Within a gated mews in Walthamstow Village, setting a new benchmark for sustainable development. The homes are the result of five years of design development and are being built around three main pillars: to be carbon negative, with zero construction waste and net energy positive and so set to incur no utility bills.
The homes are fully electric, powered solely by solar panels and are all EPC A rated. The majority of the features in the homes have been designed bespoke for The Arbour and include compressed earth brick walls and lampshades made from site soil, worktops made from wood shavings from the timber frame, shower panels from recycled plastics and more.
Walthamstow schools are excellent and plentiful, within a one mile radius alone you have twenty eight primary/secondary schools, all rated ‘Good’ or better by Ofsted with eight deemed ‘Outstanding’.
Your spoilt for choice when it comes to great pubs. The Queen’s Arms is the closest, offering excellent food and a great choice of craft beers in a comfortable , traditionally sumptuous environment.
Amongst many other local highlights, Europe’s longest street market runs down Walthamstow High Street, less than a half mile stroll away as well as Epping Forest and the Walthamstow Wetlands.
While the perks of walthamstow village are a mere stone’s throw away, you’ll have your own community on your literal doorstep
Residents can ‘live, work and play’ within the space, with access to a covered community garden with an outdoor workstation and kitchen for preparing homegrown food, as well as a reuse centre for exchanging goods between residents.
‘For me, this development is watershed moment in British construction. The building techniques used have been groundbreaking and once I delved into the details, I was left inspired by the materials used and conscious of how our consumer choices can make a difference.
The project has been carefully curated over 5 years and studies embarked on by GS8 have unearthed issues associated with standard building techniques. With innovative ideas the GS8 team have set about to find solutions to assist this project and help move the industry forward, which in turn will benefit future generations.
Purchasers have a rare chance to own a home that in years to come will be recognised as a masterpiece in construction, which challenges not only the way we build but also the way with live.’ Daniel Majeed Head of Land & New Homes.
