Russell Armer wins prestigious award for Kirkby Lonsdale development

Posted on October 30, 2019 | Awards

We’re thrilled to have notched up another win in an internationally renowned property awards programme – even more so as it’s our second consecutive success with two very different developments.

Last year, our Brigsteer Road development, Tenterfield, took the top spot in the Residential Development (Cumbria) category of the United Kingdom Property Awards. This year has seen us become an award winner in the same category for our outstanding new development in Kirkby Lonsdale: Oakfield Park.

Oakfield Park comprises 78 homes, including 27 affordable homes for people with a local connection. We’re aiming to create the feel of an established community right from the start with a variety of house styles and imaginative landscaping that uses hedges, dry-stone walls and trees to great effect.

The beautiful natural setting of this development has inspired us to go the extra mile by driving a range of measures designed to sustain and promote the proliferation of local flora and fauna – such as the inclusion of special ‘hedgehog highways’ and swift boxes.

We’re incredibly 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. Receiving an award is the icing on the cake!

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.
