Homes scoop this year’s top awards
CROSBY’S Kilnyard Road development by One Vision Housing (OVH) has been announced as the winner of the Best Affordable Home to Rent at this year’s North West Property Awards.
The development saw off competition from housebuilder Countryside and property developer Luxor Estates to take home the coveted prize.
The NWPAs is an annual awards ceremony which celebrates a year of residential and commercial property success across 11 categories.
Nearly 300 guests attended the glamorous event at the Lutyens Crypt in Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral.
OVH’s development of 10 two-bedroom homes was completed in July 2017 and they’ve been in extremely high demand.
All 10 properties were built solely to let at an affordable rent.
Kilnyard Road’s architecture, innovative use of space and landscaping impressed the judges.
Although affordable, there was no compromise on quality, with the judges highlighting the development’s clever design and creative flair.
Located south-west of Crosby town centre and within walking distance to schools, shops and recreation space, the development offers residents quality living in a highly sought after area.
OVH is a registered provider of social housing, with approximately 13,000 homes across Sefton, Liverpool, Wirral, and more recently Cheshire and West Lancashire.
It is part of The Sovini Group which was formed in December 2011.
Kim O’Brien, director of the NWPAs, says: “The number of build-to-rent developments has been increasing over recent years as more and more long-term renters look for high quality and affordability in the rental sector.
“Congratulations to One Vision for developing the Best Affordable Home to Rent in the North West.
“We have been overwhelmed with entries so to win this award is a real testament to its quality.”
NWPA judges include director of Falconer Chester Hall Alastair Shepherd; CEO of Knowsley Chamber; Lesley Martin-Wright and Elaine Cunningham, owner of Elaine Cunningham Design Studio.
