Suffolk-based housebuilder Hopkins Homes has received a prestigious national award for their restoration of a Victorian listed building.

Hopkins Homes’ Bure Place development was shortlisted in the Best Refurbishment Project category in this year’s Housebuilder Awards 2015 and fought off stiff competition from national housebuilders to win the overall prize.

Bure Place is a beautiful restoration of an architecturally stunning Victorian listed building set amongst the private grounds of St Michael’s Place, a short walk away from the East Anglian market town of Aylsham, Norfolk.

The development features a range of two-bedroom apartments; two, three and four-bedroom houses; and two-bedroom bungalows.

James Hopkins, executive chairman of Hopkins Homes said: “It is simply fantastic to see our hard work and commitment to high quality design being rewarded on a national scale once again. Our developments are purposefully and sympathetically designed to preserve and enhance the local community.

“Bure Place is a perfect example of this commitment. We have restored many original 19th century features like castellated parapets, ogee plain-tiled domes, stone mullion, and transom windows and have blended these with modern kitchens, sumptuous bathrooms and spacious living accommodation.

“We are fortunate to have very talented and skilled members of staff and suppliers who help us to consistently deliver much-needed high quality homes for communities in the East of England. I would like to thank them all for making winning this award possible.”
