Countryside’s St Irvyne’s, which forms part of Wickhurst Green near Horsham in West Sussex has received a Best Landscape Design silver award at the What House? Awards 2015.

Countryside wins landscape design award for St Irvyne's

The glittering awards ceremony was held on 20 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London, hosted by comedian David Walliams.  The awards are judged by a panel of property experts, from architects to property writers.  Now in their 34th year, the What House? Awards are considered the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding industry, rewarding the very best achievements from Britain's housebuilders.

The What House? Awards judges commented: “The landscape vision of Wickhurst Green – which will eventually provide 963 homes, a new primary school, a neighbourhood centre and facilities, and formal and informal open spaces – has three core elements; to retain and enhance the existing vegetation and biodiversity; to use the established flora and fauna water networks to create an immediate mature character; and to provide play and recreational facilities.”

The judges added: “At St Irvyne’s, the architecture and landscape combine to create an attractive and pleasantly relaxing atmosphere. With St Irvyne’s, Countryside has successfully recreated the village environment, complete with a sense of tranquillity and calm.”

St Irvyne’s offers a collection of family friendly homes arranged in a picturesque village style development, set within mature landscaping and well served by local amenities. With traditionally inspired architecture, the homes combine colonial and traditional architecture with contemporary styling, while quality and attention to detail are evident throughout.

Exuding luxury and opulence, the executive 4 and 5 bedroom detached homes in the Colonial Collection have been expertly designed with timeless style and features that include a grand entrance hall, impressive oak staircases and feature glazing to front and rear elevations.

St Irvyne’s offers a tranquil environment with homes positioned along attractive tree-lined avenues, together with extensive planting, ponds and mature oak trees.

Speaking about the awards, Graham Cherry, Chief Executive of the New Homes & Communities division at Countryside comments: “We are thrilled to have won the silver award in the Best Landscaped Design award at the What House? Awards.  We understand that creating a strong landscape design for our developments is essential for creating vibrant places which residents can enjoy for many years to come.”
