Gold at the national WhatHouse? Awards

We are proud to report that “Horizon”, our new homes development in Budleigh Salterton, has been awarded a Gold at the prestigious What House? Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.


Gold at the national WhatHouse? Awards

Built around community allotments and featuring 48 new homes – 40% of which are designated “affordable” – this joint venture project with Cavanna Homes, and Cornerstone providing the social housing, was named the Best Partnership Scheme in Britain.

The Exeter-based studio of LHC Architecture were responsible for the masterplan and design of the homes.

In their citation, the judges said: “Perhaps Horizon’s most enduring quality is the sense of how much each of the stakeholders really cared about its delivery and success, and it shows in the final product and the budding new community it is creating.”


The WhatHouse? Awards, are one of the biggest events in the housebuilding industry, attracting over 1,700 senior figures from the new homes industry to the annual event.
