Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside villas has scooped The Sunday Times award for Best House Design.
Designed by architect Alison Brooks and offering studios to four bedroom homes, the Bath Riverside scheme is among few residential developments in the city to give residents direct access to the River Avon which runs alongside the development.
The design, while modern, pays tribute to Bath’s classic Georgian past and has proved as popular among buyers as it has judges.
The site has undergone an extensive transformation since the beginning of 2011.
The Sunday Times Best House Design accolade, which focuses on homes that champion best practice in design and specification, was awarded to Crest Nicholson at a ceremony held at The London Marriot Hotel in Grosvenor Square last month.
It is the second time in two years the developer has won the award, after also receiving it for their Oakgrove Village development in Milton Keynes.
Mary Timlin, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson, said: “We are delighted that Bath Riverside has been recognised at The Sunday Times British Homes awards.
“That we have now won this award two years running reflects the fact that Crest Nicholson schemes are designed to an exceptionally high standard, and this year’s win is a fantastic achievement for the Bath Riverside team.
“We’ve seen a phenomenal amount of interest in Bath Riverside, which is testament to the quality of these outstanding developments.”
