Dreywood Court

98 extra care homes in Romford, east London, built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4

Dreywood Court is a development of 98 high-quality homes for people who require specialist care, support and housing services.

Twenty of the apartments are available for older residents to purchase on an ownership basis.

Willmott Dixon built Dreywood Court to create a great community atmosphere which promotes independence and well-being, with residents benefiting from facilities that include:

  • Restaurant
  • Guest suite for visiting friends
  • Hairdressers
  • Spa bathroom
  • External, landscaped areas.

All the apartments benefit from high quality insulation and modern heating systems to keep fuel bills low.

Green features include a brown roof, solar photovoltaic panels, rainwater harvesting, with 20% of energy used in the home from a renewable source.

"This inclusive, thoughtfully designed scheme achieved a balance between helping residents to live independently and providing a safe environment with specialist care services on hand should they be required."

Geoff Pearce, East Thames Director (at the time of development)
