Liverpool homes win UK property award
The redevelopment of the old Holly Lodge Girls College site, off Mill Lane, was a Residential Development Award Winner for Merseyside, making it one of the best in the county.
Four other developments were named winners in their respective counties – with Tabley Green, near Preston taking a 5* prize, making it the best in Lancashire - and we also picked up three awards for the interior design of two show homes and a sales centre.
All eight awards were announced at a glittering ceremony at the Royal Lancaster, London, whilst competing against the best property professionals from across the UK regions in all categories.
Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), said: “We put Regency Manor forward as we are very proud of our Georgian influenced Regent Collection homes and the environment in which they sit. As well building 51 brand new homes, we are partway through refurbishing one of two Grade II listed buildings to turn it into apartments. We have also retained a historic pond and many mature trees.”
“To have all of this recognised at the UK Property Awards is an honour – but, even more important to us, is the approval of our customers; and sales of new homes at Regency Manor would suggest that homeowners are very much in favour too.”
The UK Property Award also recognises our partnership approach at Regency Manor. The development forms part of the wider Liverpool Housing Partnership, within which we are working with Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH), Liverpool City Council and property contractor Willmott Dixon to deliver 1,500 homes over a five-year period.
Our role in the partnership is to develop aspirational homes, with a focus on high-quality family housing; while capital receipts from the sale of land to us is re-invested to provide affordable housing elsewhere in the city.
Holly Lodge Girls College had previously relocated into the brand new Emmeline Pankhurst Building on a neighbouring site. That relocation led to the school’s old 8.2 acre site on the corner of Queens Drive and Mill Lane being earmarked for housing under the Liverpool Housing Partnership.
The UK Property Awards were judged by an independent panel of 80 industry experts, with judging focused on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability. The judging panel was chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best, The Earl of Liverpool, and Lord Thurso, members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament.
The Regency Manor development they admired currently features a choice of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, with prices from £197,995 for a two-bedroom Cadogan mews to £414,995 for a five-bedroom detached Millgate, with spacious accommodation over three floors including a luxury master suite with walk-through dressing area and en-suite.
West Derby is a thriving village location, close to Liverpool city centre, but with its own excellent schools, shops and restaurants right on the doorstep.
