A housebuilder in Etwall has won a prestigious national award.


Redrow East Midlands’ The Nook, on Egginton Road, was recognised for having the ‘Best Interior Design Show Home in Derbyshire’ in the UK Property Awards 2023.


Now in its 30th year, the UK Property Awards recognise the highest standards of quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability. The winners are carefully chosen by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts, chaired by House of Lords members Lord Best and Lord Waverley.


Responsible for the impressive win was the five-bedroom Blenheim, which starts from £795,000 A double-fronted home, half-timbered eaves and a traditional chimney stack gives the home a regal appearance while inside, is a high-spec, large open-plan haven, perfect for any modern family.


On the ground floor, at the front of the home, a stylish lounge and separate dining room are perfect for dinner parties and time spent relaxing. While spanning the width of the property, the spacious main kitchen, dining and family room are perfect for bringing everyone together – and large bi-folding doors flood this space with natural light.


Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, including the envy-inducing main bedroom, complete with a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. There is also a second bedroom with an en-suite and a luxurious family bathroom.


Ryan O’Sullivan, Sales Director at Redrow East Midlands, said: “We’re delighted that the Blenheim has been named ‘Best Show Home in Derbyshire’ – it’s a fantastic achievement.
