We love the minimal zen garden.
This spectacular ‘black house’, which served as the backdrop for Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, is for sale in Birmingham.
Designed in 2018 by award-winning architects BPN, Kuro Koti boasts well-proportioned open-plan spaces, architectural lines, natural surfaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a minimal enclosed garden area.
Flow and light are key design components. There’s an uncluttered reception hallway with access to the open-plan living space, a cosy snug area with its own wood-burner, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a self-contained home office for undisturbed Zoom calls. Each room has a smart selection of comfortable, understated furnishings, well-curated artwork, and simple decorative objects.

The contemporary kitchen has been created with entertaining in mind. Combining practicality, style and comfort, highlights include bespoke handmade cabinetry in a handleless matt finish, complementing work surfaces, a Liebherr wine fridge, Neff fridge, freezer and dishwasher, Elica gas hob, and De Dietrich duel ovens and plate warmer. A separate utility room provides ample space for larger appliances, freeing up room for cooking.
As for the bedrooms, the principle suite comes complete with bi-fold doors, two feature glass walls, a sun terrace, and a magnificent en-suite bathroom with a dual-end bathtub, Italian terrazzo tiles and separate walk-in shower. Long after-work soaks never looked so good.
Bedrooms two and three also have the benefit of excellently fitted en-suite shower rooms, while bedrooms four and five are served by the family bathroom.
The zen garden is a place of peaceful contemplation. Created as a relaxing outdoor space that is easily maintained, the covered outdoor dining area sits under the cantilever of the first floor — a perfect nook for alfresco dining. A feature pond and relaxed planting add intrigue to the rest of the space.
Kuro Koti is currently on the market for £1,995,000 with Knight Frank.
