Said Mr Ownsworth: “We are committed to providing luxury, high quality homes in the Yorkshire area and we are proud to have received this national award.
“I’d like to thank all our contractors and anyone involved in the development at Scotgate Fold for all their hard work.
“The last couple of years have been tough for the building industry, but we try to remain optimistic and I would say that if you put the right time, effort and quality into building a new property and price the property realistically then the property will sell.
“People looking for new build homes want to see quality.
“First impressions count on a new development and once customers are able to view the properties they can see the quality of workmanship and high quality finish in all our developments.”
Jamie Young, Worth Home’s site manager, added: “Working for Jason and Jolanta and being involved in their family business is a great privilege.
“They are very thorough and it is a great company to work for. They have a lot of drive and commitment in building quality homes and I am pleased to be part of their success.”
