Suffolk-based housebuilder Hopkins Homes has now achieved a hat-trick of national awards for its restoration and conversion of a Victorian listed building in Norfolk.

The firm’s Bure Place development at Aylsham has won a Bronze award in the Best Development category in the 2015 What House? Awards.

This follows other recent successes including Best Refurbishment Project at the Housebuilder Awards and Development of the Year at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards.

Bure Place involved the the creation of a mix of two-bedroom apartments, two-, three- and four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom bungalows.

James Hopkins, executive chairman of Hopkins Homes, which is based at Melton, near Woodbridge, said: “Our projects have won a lot of awards over the years, but to win a hat-trick of national awards for a development is very special.

“I believe it’s our ongoing commitment to high quality design that makes us stand out. Our developments are purposefully and sympathetically designed to respect and preserve the local area.

“Bure Place is a perfect example of that. As part of the project we restored original 19th Century features like castellated parapets, ogee plain-tiled domes, stone mullion, and transom windows and blended these with modern kitchens, stunning bathrooms and spacious living.”

He added: “Winning this award wouldn’t have happened were it not for our very talented and skilled staff and suppliers. They help us to consistently deliver much-needed, high quality homes for communities in the East of England. I thank them all for making this win possible.”
