The WhatHouse? Awards 2014 - the winners in full

Posted 21 November 2014 by Keith Osborne

At a glittering event at London's Grosvenor House Hotel today, the best new homes and housebuilders in Britain were named at the WhatHouse? Awards 2014, the most prestigious awards in the industry.

The 33rd WhatHouse? Awards was the biggest-ever in its history, with some 1,640 senior figures gathered in the Great Room of the five-star venue. Actor and comedian Rob Brydon presented awards in 20 categories before announcing this year's Housebuilder of the Year - City & Country Group.

The Essex-based developer also won Gold for Best Medium Housebuilder and Best Renovation, as well as a Bronze for Best Partnership Scheme. Other multiple winners included London Square, Octagon, Barratt Homes and Grainger plc.

Rupert Bates, editorial director of WhatHouse?, hailed the quality of this year's entries and winners. “This is what the best housebuilders, large and small, and their supply chains, can deliver. This is what the industry can achieve with passion and professionalism. There were a record number of entries to this year's Awards. On the basis that nobody enters unless they believe they have a chance of winning, then every single entrant has illustrated huge pride in what has been built.”
