WhatHouse? These Houses. Mount Anvil wows at WhatHouse? Awards

Last week, Mount Anvil developments won big at the WhatHouse? Awards – the UK new-build homes industry’s biggest and best awards event. Between them Hampstead Manor and Queen’s Wharf added three Silver awards to our already crowded mantelpiece. Read more below.


Ever dreamt of owning one of the UK’s best renovations? What about living in one of the country’s best luxury developments, or even one of its very best apartment schemes?

If you live in Hampstead Manor or Queen’s Wharf, you already do.

Commonly known as the 'Oscars' of the UK housebuilding industry, the WhatHouse? Awards is the UK’s most hotly anticipated awards event for new-build homes. Winners are chosen by an expert panel of judges, and announced every November at a gala luncheon at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

At this year’s event, Hampstead Manor brought home Silver awards for ‘Best Renovation’ and ‘Best Luxury Development’, while Queen’s Wharf won Silver in the hotly contested ‘Best Apartment Scheme’ category.

Awarding Hampstead Manor Silver for Best Renovation, the judges praised its “conservation-led repairs […] attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship”, applauding how the development’s historic buildings have “been treated with a refreshingly light touch”.

It was the scheme’s “breathtaking attention to detail” that won it Silver for Best Luxury Development, with the judges noting that “the highest level of conservation and design expertise was clearly demanded, and has been triumphantly fulfilled”. The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings said that Hampstead Manor is “unlike anything we’ve seen on SPAB scholarship so far”.

Queen’s Wharf’s top-to-bottom quality saw it sail to a Silver award in the ‘Best Apartment Scheme’ category. The judges loved the development’s thoughtful finishing, and found themselves “as impressed by a carefully designed studio with a generous balcony, as they were by a 2,000ft² penthouse with a separate annexe and roof garden complete with outdoor kitchen and hot tub”.

Jon Hall, Sales Director at Mount Anvil, said "We’re ecstatic to have been recognised at this year’s WhatHouse? Awards. We are committed to creating outstanding places where people can thrive, and these awards are testament to how our brilliant teams – from planning and design to build teams on site – are constantly delivering on that commitment. A huge well done to all involved”.
