Countryside beat stiff competition to achieve this accolade, competing against the big names in the housebuilding industry. Judged by a team of property experts, from architects to property writers, Countryside was able to showcase their approach to building highly attractive new homes and creating places people love.
In their report, the judges commented: “The Company’s overall financial strength, coupled with its multiple policies of good design, co-operation with the public sector and engagement with local communities makes Countryside a winning contender. With 283 awards for design and sustainability since 2000, and now part of the Mayor of London's London Development Panel, it is clear that Countryside's heart is in the right place - not just in its pocket!”
Graham Cherry, Chief Executive of Countryside said: “We are delighted to have been named Developer of the Year in the Ideal Home Show Blue Ribbon Awards 2014. This is a strong endorsement of our approach to development, which is to build beautifully designed, sustainable homes, creating vibrant places which residents can enjoy for many years to come.”
Sponsored by Rockwool, the Blue Ribbon Awards build on the Ideal Home Show’s tradition of celebrating good design and innovation. This year, there has been a record-breaking level of entries from designers, architects, housing associations and developers.
With a £5.1 billion nationwide development programme, Countryside’s main areas of operation are London and Thames Gateway, the South East, East and North West of England.
Working with leading architects, urban designers and their own experienced in-house planning teams, the company takes a design led approach which results in innovative, visually stimulating homes that integrate with the surrounding environments.
The type and style of properties varies enormously from family homes to townhouses, cottages and apartments with each development benefitting from its own unique identity. Whether they are located in new communities, urban, suburban or rural areas, all Countryside homes have individual character, are finished to a high quality specification and are built to last.
