Network Homes were the winners of the Best Small Development award at the National Housing Awards 2019 for their scheme Le Bon Court.

Le Bon Court is a stylish and modern development built to impress providing 27 apartments; 23 of which are London Living Rent and four are Affordable Rent. It is one of the first developments in the capital to offer the Mayor of London’s London Living Rent tenure.

A former derelict hotel, Le Bon Court now brings stunning architecture and urban design to the heart of Harrow and most importantly, the opportunity to own a home. The scheme offers spacious apartments which are open plan and generous in light and space, ideal for enjoying family time or entertaining friends. The apartments come with an excellent specification and residents can enjoy five-star quality interior design featuring private outdoor space and built-in wardrobes.

Le Bon Court is a zero-car development apart and located a five-minute walk from the centre of Harrow and Harrow on the Hill tube station. Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: “I’m really pleased to have Network Homes amongst the first housing associations to deliver my new London Living Rent homes, which will help give Londoners the chance to begin saving to get themselves on the property ladder.”.
