Alfred’s Gate in the East Devon village of Newton Poppleford, near Sidmouth, and Kings Orchard in the village of Stoke Gabriel, near Totnes, have been shortlisted in the 2020 national Housebuilder Awards for ‘Best Design for Three Storeys or Fewer’.
Alfred’s Gate and Kings Orchard are the only South West developments to be recognised by the expert panel of judges as two of the best designed residential schemes, alongside seven other sites across the country.
Michael Newman, Head of Land and Design, said: “These prestigious awards are highly competitive and recognise innovation and excellence in the housebuilding sector – so we’re thrilled to have two of our stunning Westcountry schemes shortlisted! We’re looking forward to the virtual awards ceremony in December”.
Alfred’s Gate is a joint venture development with Clinton Devon Estates, featuring a selection of 40 new three and four-bedroom family homes and detached bungalows, where 40 percent of houses are affordable homes. The development adjoins an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is designed to reflect the style of the local village.
In the South Hams village of Stoke Gabriel, Kings Orchard is a development of 53 new one to four-bedroom homes which has also been shortlisted in the 2020 Michelmores Property Awards for ‘Residential Project of the Year (36 units & over)’.
As well as building a community of stylish, energy-efficient homes to fit within the rural landscape, land for a new community hub was allocated which is now under construction and will provide rooms and facilities for office space and community groups.
The national Housebuilder Awards are in partnership with the National House Building Council (NHBC) and the Home Builders Federation (HBF), which recently recognised Cavanna Homes as a five-star homebuilder after the firm received a 100 percent recommendation from homeowners.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the awards ceremony will be taking place via an online virtual event on Thursday 3rd December 2020.
