Ninewells cleans up at the 2016 WhatHouse? Awards

322_wha16_pg8_2675The WhatHouse? Awards are the most prestigious awards in the UK housebuilding industry and last Friday saw the awards in their 35th year.  Hill, having previously been awarded WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the year in 2015, were hopeful of success in 2016 and we weren’t disappointed! We were absolutely thrilled to be able to add to our ever-growing list of accolades at this year’s WhatHouse? Awards, with Ninewells winning two awards and Hill winning six overall.

This year saw Ninewells pick up the honour of being crowned 2016’s Development of the Year winner and was awarded gold for its energy efficient properties, refreshing appearance, generous spacing and inspirational landscaping.  We retained this title following the success of two of our older developments: The Scene, Walthamstow (2015) and The Avenue, Saffron Walden (2014).

The success didn’t end there for Ninewells, with our Longstowe home also winning Best House. The three-storey detached house was praised for its versatile accommodation and received particular admiration for the terraces, balconies and outdoor space which all provide unparalleled views to the Gog Magog Downs.   The Longstowe has previously been awarded ‘Best out of London Home’ at Evening Standard New Homes and this, coupled with Ninewells’ itself being awarded ‘Best Development’ 2016 by WhatHouse?, make this new home truly special. But hurry, only one of these ‘Best Homes’ remain! Click here to see full details of our last remaining, award-winning home.

Hill are also very proud to have been awarded silver for Best Medium Housebuilder. Coming extremely close to retaining the Best Medium Housebuilder title, we are thrilled that our dedication to providing well designed, sustainable homes for a wide range of projects continued to impress at the WhatHouse? Awards. We are also delighted to have been awarded bronze for Sustainable Developer of the Year.

The full list of Hill’s awards includes:

Best Development (Gold) for Ninewells

Best House (Gold) for our Longstowe House at Ninewells
