City & Country sets new record at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023
City & Country Clinches Best Refurbishment Project at the 2023 Housebuilder Awards
We are thrilled to announce that our stunning development in South West London, The 1840, St George’s Gardens, has secured the title Best Refurbishment Project at this year’s esteemed Housebuilder Awards. This accolade is a notable highlight in the UK property industry and showcases our dedication to preserving architectural heritage while creating luxurious modern living spaces. We are proud of our status as a renowned developer known for its excellence in restoration and conversion, and The 1840 St George’s Gardens is an excellent example of that.
The prestigious event, held at the InterContinental London – The O2, saw Ben Mackett, Development Director, and Marco Sidoli, Regional Development Director of City & Country, proudly receiving the award. The celebration was amplified by the fact that another of our signature developments, the King Edward VII Estate in West Sussex, was also in the running as a finalist for the same category.
Shelley West, Group Sales & Marketing Director at City & Country, reflected on the significance of the win, stating, “The Housebuilder awards are highly sought after within the UK property industry. Therefore, having The 1840 win Best Refurbishment Project with King Edward VII Estate as a finalist in the same category is a fantastic achievement.” She highlighted the effort and passion that our team pours into each development, ensuring that every project is a hallmark of quality and craftsmanship.
The homes, nestled within a Grade II listed building at The 1840 St George’s Gardens, represents a masterclass in blending historical charm with contemporary design. This conversion has given new life to Victorian features, including original windows and cast-iron columns, juxtaposed with modern living spaces that speak of elegance and comfort.
Prospective residents will be delighted with the private outdoor spaces that many of the homes offer, allowing for serene views across the expansive eight acres of landscaped gardens and the adjoining parkland. The development also boasts bespoke communal areas, retail and café space, along with a dedicated concierge service, offering a holistic luxury lifestyle.
Beyond the tranquil retreat of The 1840 St George’s Gardens, residents benefit from its strategic location between Tooting, Balham, Earlsfield, and Wandsworth Common. This ensures seamless connectivity to London’s bustling city centre and the convenience of metropolitan living.
2023 has been a year of multiple triumphs for City & Country. Alongside the victory at the Housebuilder Awards, we have celebrated successes at the Sussex Heritage Awards, First Time Buyer Awards, and The Evening Standard Property Awards. Additionally, five of our developments were finalists at the UK Property Awards, and it achieved finalist status in two categories at The Bristol Property Awards.
Our commitment to excellence is evident in these accolades, reflecting our unique approach to development – one that honours the past while embracing the future. For more information on The 1840, St George’s Gardens, and other City & Country developments, simply navigate to each page above.
