Russell Armer wins international property award for the second year running

Posted on September 25, 2019 | Awards

You may remember that this time last year we were cock-a-hoop about a win for our Brigsteer Road development, Tenterfield, in the Residential Development (Cumbria) category of the United Kingdom Property Awards. We’re even more excited today as we announce another win in the same category – this time for the outstanding new Russell Armer development in Kirkby Lonsdale: Oakfield Park.

Located on the edge of town but close to schools and other local amenities, Oakfield Park comprises 78 homes, including 27 affordable homes for people with a local connection.

The development is designed to have the appeal of an established community right from the start with a variety of house styles available on this stunning residential spot bordered by open pasture, playing fields and tree-lined residential avenues. The landscaping throughout is a particular feature, with effective use of hedges, dry-stone walls and trees and great consideration given to measures that will sustain and promote the proliferation of local flora and fauna – such as the inclusion of special ‘hedgehog highways’ and swift boxes.

Russell Armer Homes Architect, Richard Wood, commented:

‘We’re absolutely thrilled to have won an award for the second year running in a category that attracts the very highest standard of entry – and with two very different developments. Oakfield Park was a long time in the planning and we’re proud of all the hard work that’s gone into creating a development that will provide comfortable, contemporary homes for residents, at the same time conserving and supporting the area’s biodiversity.’

Now in their 26th year, the UK Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts who consider design, innovation, originality and commitment to sustainability when selecting award winners.

We’ll be heading down to the Awards ceremony in London on the 25th October 2019. The level of award will be revealed on the evening – with the highest scoring five-star winners from each category automatically put forward for re-judging against the five-star winners in other regions of the world – watch this space for an update!
