A HOUSEBUILDER has proved a hit with judges in a national competition.
Brockholes-based Towngate Homes achieved a top-three spot in the category for best family new build at the Northern Design Awards.
It follows the success of sister firm property developer Conroy Brook winning the award for most outstanding retirement development in the UK for its Holme Valley Court complex in Holmfirth.
Judging for the Northern Design Awards was down to a respected panel of experts in their fields. Sir Terence Conran joined the panel this year for the first time along with designer Wayne Hemingway and Suzanne Imre, of Livingetc magazine.
Towngate Homes was recognised for its residential development of 16 craftsman-built, spacious, natural stone detached homes and townhouses at Broomfield Avenue, Halifax.
The development has previously received accolades at the Local Authority Building Control West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards and the UK Residential Property Awards.
