Stockton-based property developer Mandale Homes has been shortlisted for one of the biggest accolades in the property industry for its sustainable, exclusive living development in Slingsby, North Yorkshire.
The company has beaten off 35 competitors, including large London based industry peers, to make the final two now in the running for the coveted Best Residential UK Development award.
The company also picked up the top 5* UK Property Award for the Best Residential Development in Yorkshire & the Humber for its Cavendish Vale, Slingsby scheme, beating off two other category winners to bag the regional title.
Mandale now goes head-to-head with one other developer for the Best UK Development crown and will find out it if has been successful in December, where the developer could also be recognised as the Best in the World.
The disused lorry park on a brownfield site in the North Yorkshire rural village of Slingsby has now been transformed into Cavendish Vale, an exclusive living development featuring 18 luxury homes with nine different styles and has been sympathetically designed in keeping with the local area.
Working in collaboration with the local authority, Mandale Homes created the showpiece development which is set on the border of the Howardian Hills, an area of national beauty and retains the charm and character of the traditional buildings within Slingsby.
Originally the company planned to build 24 homes on the site, but reduced this to 18 in line with the types of homes in demand in the local area.
Landscaping of the scheme was also designed to encourage native wildlife back to the site and Mandale also retained as much of the original boundary vegetation as possible, incorporating it into the design, alongside protecting and trimming trees for future enjoyment by the local community.
The UK Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of 70 industry experts and focus on design, quality, service, innovation, originality and commitment to sustainability.
Mandale Homes’ operations director Richard Harriman said: “We are absolutely delighted to be honoured with this coveted top 5* UK Property Award for Cavendish Vale, which is a mark of excellence for property professionals.
“As a niche North East developer competing against some big London based industry peers, we are also thrilled to make the final two in the highly regarded Best UK Development title.
“We pride ourselves on creating homes that enhance the local communities we operate in, building quality, high specifications and consideration into every home as standard.
“This award is true testament to the team’s hard work on this sustainable development.”
