Award Success for Chantry Quarry
Latchmere has achieved outstanding success in the prestigious International Property Awards with its Chantry Quarry development in Guildford.
Chantry Quarry was selected as the outright winner in the Best Architecture Multiple Residence category for the whole of the United Kingdom and was judged to be the Best Residential Development (Five Star Award) in Surrey. The development also received the accolade of Best Architecture (Five Star Award) in the South East and was Highly Commended in the Show Home Interior Design Category for the South East.
These awards represent a significant achievement for Latchmere Properties Ltd as entries are judged against a strict set of criteria and the company faced stiff competition from a number of high-profile UK developments.
The Awards were sponsored by Gaggenau in association with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The international judging panel comprised over 70 property experts and was chaired by three active members of the House of Lords: Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Courtown. The latter presented the prizes along with Stuart Shield, Chairman of the International Property Awards and Steve Brownless, Sales & Marketing Director for Gaggenau.
Chairman, Stuart Shield, said that he was ‘delighted’ to celebrate the achievements of UK developers, commenting that the judges were amazed by the high standards, the creativity and innovation of the winners and applauding the high level of talent and skill that has been used to create living spaces that are comfortable, practical and aesthetically stunning.
The judging panel described Chantry Quarry as “…a brilliant development set in a challenging site. Superbly detailed and expertly handled contemporary design.” It was also described as “…an interesting development that has made every effort to blend into, as well as complement, its unusual setting. Well planned and set out with high quality building materials and interior finishes.” The interior design of the show home was graded as ‘very good.’
“We are absolutely delighted with our success” said Mark Eshelby, “We have faced and successfully overcome a number of challenges and are very proud of what we have created.”
