Those that are may find it interesting to know that Standard Property has found a solution to “instantly” updating a riverside property.
The ARC — a ready-made, sustainable modular building — could be the answer if you’ve been looking for a riverside home with mooring but can’t find anything you like.
Created by Phil Clayden, who grew up locally and still lives in Oxfordshire, where he runs his firm Green Unit, the innovative design promises “just weeks from order confirmation to moving in”.
Phil said: “As a Henley boy who’s created a new modular building system with the potential to reinvent homes, I can really see it being of interest to those who wish to live in places such as Henley’s Rod Eyot island, but can’t find a property they like there. My Green Unit would be ideal for replacing an older style or bungalow-style house, and is very much in the style of the nearby River and Rowing Museum.”
