Renowned heritage developer City & Country has won the Highly Commended Award for Bentley Priory (an outstanding collection of restoration homes in Stanmore) in the Best Small Development category at this year’s London Evening Standard New Homes Awards.
Taking place on Friday 16th May at a glittering ceremony at London’s prestigious Dorchester Hotel hosted by comedian Dara O’Briain, The London Evening Standard New Homes Awards set the gold standard in the property world and celebrate the skills of the new homes industry. The awards, now in their 23rd year, are judged by Evening Standard readers as well as industry experts, and recognise excellence across the housing spectrum - from first-time buyer flats to ultra-luxurious homes.
Helen Moore, Managing Director of City & Country, accepted the award and said: “We’re delighted to receive this prestigious award for Bentley Priory as it provides the development with recognition from independent leading industry experts and reader judges alike, that our properties at Bentley Priory stand out from the crowd in terms of design, build quality and their wonderful landscaped setting – all combined with an extraordinary historic context. We are very honoured to add a further award to our growing collection and the whole team will continue to strive for excellence in all we do.”
Bentley Priory has also been awarded first prize in The Harrow Heritage Trust Architectural & Environment Awards; an award which celebrates innovative architecture and designs which contribute to the local environment.
Reflecting on their double success, Helen continued: “2013-2014 has been a fantastic year for the company, with a 298% increase in Net Profit, a record number of sales completions, and a significant number of new additions to our growing team. We are actively looking at a number of new sites, with further plans to expand, and we expect this coming year to be even more successful.”
The former RAF Bentley Priory was originally built in 1766 and served as the headquarters of Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. Restoration experts City & Country began the painstaking work to sympathetically restore and convert the historical buildings in 2011. Combining a rich historical setting with a modern twist the mansion house has been home to several notable residents during its lifetime including Queen Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, Queen Consort of William IV and John Hamilton, 1st Marquess of Abercorn. Distinguished visitors include Sir Walter Scott, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Winston Churchill.
Set in gated grounds with concierge and full estate management, Bentley Priory is located just a short walk from a variety of cafes and restaurants on Stanmore high street. The development benefits from the London transport network at the end of the Jubilee line, and offers easy access to the M25 and Heathrow International Airport. Property prices range from £675,000 for a two-bedroom apartment to £1,400,000 for a three-bedroom house.
