Evening Standard Award win for Deanfield Grange

September 2021:

Deanfield Homes is celebrating after success at the 2021 Evening Standard New Homes Awards. Our Deanfield Grange development in Shipton-under-Wychwood received a Highly Commended award in the hotly contested Best Small Development category – one of only three sites to receive official recognition in this classification. The win also represents a triumph over competing sites from across London, the Home Counties and the wider South East region.

The leading new homes awards event, now in its 30th year and back at The Dorchester Hotel on London’s Park Lane, is recognition of the very best in housebuilding, with the results announced in front of the industry’s leading figures. Judging began back in the summer, with an independent panel of property experts and the Evening Standard’s discerning readers deciding who would be crowned worthy winners.

“We knew Deanfield Grange had passed the first round of judging as one of the property experts personally paid a visit to the development. It was then an anxious wait to see if we’d made the short list, and another nervous few hours on the awards day itself,” commented Annette Gaskell, Deanfield Homes’ Sales & Marketing Manager.

“The judging criteria was stringent. We had to make clear to the judges how Deanfield Grange created a sense of place and allowed residents to feel part of a community,” adds Annette. “Additional aspects that the judging panel considered included quality of design and finish; utilisation of space and light; value for money; use of materials; energy efficiency; location; environmental positioning; innovation and architecture.”

Deanfield Homes’ Managing Director, Peter Blades, took to the stage to receive the award from host and comedian Jason Manford, and his assistant for the event, Olympic taekwondo gold medallist, Jade Jones OBE.

Our buyers can be reassured that we apply the same design, construction and customer service principles to every development we build, with Deanfield Grange as a blueprint for future success.
