This week, Higgins Homes celebrated their outstanding award win at the annual Evening Standard New Homes Awards. The private developer walked away with a win for their collection of bespoke family homes at The Cavendish Collection in Chigwell in the category of Best Family Houses valued in excess of £1.5 million.
Having competed against a number of established developers from across London and the South East to receive this recognition, Martin Higgins, Director at Higgins Homes, commented: “Working within such an exacting market, it is imperative that we get the product right every time and at The Cavendish Collection we appear to have done exactly that. These family homes blend perfectly with the architecture of the surrounding older properties yet provide an ideal living space for the modern family. For Higgins Homes to be recognised amongst such a high calibre of competition is a great achievement and we are extremely pleased to have received this award.
Located in the picturesque home county of Chigwell, Essex, The Cavendish Collection is a premium collection of five beautifully refined, detached houses. One home remains available for sale priced at £2,000,000. A former show home, ‘The Blenheim’ is a fully dressed, 6 bedroom house arranged over three, spacious floors. Covering a total of 4101.16 sq ft, this family home features three interconnected living rooms and a private study on the ground floor, professionally designed kitchen, utility room, four bedrooms - including the elegant master suite with vaulted ceiling - and on the second floor are two further bedrooms and another study. A tandem garage also sits alongside the property.
Now in its 23rd year, The London Evening Standard New Homes Awards are recognised as ‘The Oscars’ of the property world and celebrates the skills of the new homes industry. The awards champion clever design and creative solutions that solve the challenges of current living standards.
A member of the judging panel commented: “These homes reflected true consideration for the local market. They are they tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac offering complete security plus they have been designed, constructed and internally decorated to an exceptionally high standard with today’s modern family in mind. The Blenheim, a large six bedroom house also offers the flexibility of separate accommodation on the top floor, providing additional living space for older children, grandparents, or stay at home nannies as well as optional study space for parents working from home. It was this attention to detail that helped The Cavendish Collection to lead by example and achieve such recognition.
