Mandale Homes shortlisted for Best UK Development at property Awards

Cavendish Vale, Slingsby development down to final two, beating 35 competitors

We are very excited to announce, Mandale Homes, has been shortlisted for one of the biggest accolades in the property industry for our sustainable, exclusive living development in Slingsby, North Yorkshire. We have beat off 35 competitors, including large London based industry peers, to make the final two and be in the running for the coveted Best Residential UK Development award.

We also picked up the top 5* UK Property Award for the Best Residential Development in Yorkshire & the Humber for the same development Cavendish Vale, Slingsby, beating off 3 other category winners to bag the regional title.

Mandale now goes head to head with one other developer for the Best UK Development crown, we will find out if we have been successful in December, where we could also be recognised as the Best in the World.

The development featured 18 luxury homes (2, 3 and 4 beds) with 9 different styles and has been sympathetically designed in keeping with the local area.

Working in collaboration with the Local Authority we 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 we 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 we 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.

Every aspect of the design, build and interiors of the homes within Cavendish Vale included environmental considerations from sourcing local materials to reduce transport costs and CO2 production to fitting energy efficient household appliances and low level lighting schemes which reduce light pollution and energy consumption.   Eco-bins and water meters are installed with the intention of encouraging household recycling and discouraging excessive water consumption.

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.

Richard Harriman, Operations Director, Mandale Homes commented:

“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. It would be a dream to go on and win in December and to also be named Best in the World.”

“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,” continued Richard Harriman.
