Midweek Visiter - - News -

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.

Coun­try­side was this year’s head­line spon­sor while MSB Solic­i­tors, Redrow Homes Lan­cashire, UK Busi­ness Sup­plies, The Foundry Agency, Paul Crow­ley & Co Solic­i­tors, Red­wing Liv­ing, The Sovini Group, BMD Law, Brock Carmichael sup­ported as cat­e­gory spon­sors.
