Countryside receives high recognition at prestigious Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2020


We are proud to announce that we picked up four awards at the prestigious Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2020. Beaulieu, our joint venture with L&Q, and Breedon Place both were named winners in their category, while Regency Grange and Breedon Place were Highly Commended.

Entering its 29th year of acknowledging the very best achievements from Britain’s housebuilders, this highly coveted award recognises innovation and excellence, and we’re delighted to be amongst the winners. Judged by a panel of industry experts, the awards look for developments that display excellence in overall design, including aesthetics, suitability for purpose and sustainability.

Beaulieu was crowned the winner of the Best Shared Ownership Development. This category not only recognises outstanding projects that make a real impact on the delivery of quality homes but also developments that provide young professionals and families an opportunity to put down roots. Beaulieu is our joint venture development with L&Q - forming a new district for first time buyers, second steppers, families, and downsizers in Chelmsford - together we’ve delivered significant affordable housing provision with over 400 Shared Ownership homes.

Our premium brand, Millgate, also scooped up two awards this year. The Allington house type at Breedon Place in Pangbourne was crowned the winner within the ‘Best Family Home’ category. Celebrating well-designed homes that perfectly complement family living, this award is a testament to the development’s luxurious properties and its desirable location in Berkshire. 

The Allington house type at Breedon Place was also Highly Commended in the ‘Best Out of London Home’ category, a further nod to the developments appealing location, where residents enjoy both quick and easy access to acres of countryside and the capital. 

Finally, our Regency Grange development in Royal Tunbridge Wells was Highly Commended in the Best Small Development category, showcasing the development’s credentials as a community-focused neighbourhood with outstanding properties that enhance and complement its local surroundings. 

We pride ourselves on building high-quality homes and exceptional customer service and these awards reflect our commitment to creating places people love.
