Nailed it! Derbyshire housebuilder wins prestigious national award

An Etwall housebuilder has received the highest accolade in a prestigious national award ceremony.


Redrow East Midlands’ The Nook, on Eggington Road, was given the highest accolade in the ‘Best Interior Show Home in Derbyshire’ category – the coveted Five Star award – in the UK Property Awards 2023.


The win means the housebuilder will now compete globally with other housebuilders at The International Property Awards Grand Final later this year.


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 Blenheim, available from £795,000, which forms part of the housebuilder’s popular Heritage Collection, and offers the perfect marriage of traditional features and craftsmanship with contemporary interior design. 


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 given the Five Star award in the Best Interior Show Home in Derbyshire category – it’s a fantastic achievement for our region.


“This win is a testament to the quality of the homes we have available not just at The Nook, but across the region, and a perfect demonstration of the Redrow difference which sets us apart from our competitors.


“We’re incredibly excited to win this Five Star award which now sees us competing globally at the International Property Awards – where we’ll be showing off the Redrow difference to designers and housebuilders all around the world! Congratulations, team East Midlands!”


Located just eight miles from Derby, six miles from Burton-Upon Trent, and with key travel routes within easy reach, the new development will offer village surroundings combined with a well-connected location. The Nook really is perfectly placed for first-time buyers, growing families and commuters alike.
