Together with our co-sponsors, Hill and PEM, Barr Ellison was pleased to support the 2018 Cambridge Property Awards. In the fast-moving, vibrant world that is the Cambridge property market, these awards recognise great professionals, great organisations and great developments.
Barr Ellison once again sponsored the Innovation of the Year category at this year’s Cambridge Property Awards and this year’s winners were Palace Green Homes, pictured with Elizabeth Deyong, Property Partner at Barr Ellison.
According to Helen Murphy, Head of Conveyancing: “Palace Green Homes richly deserve this Award for their approach on a number of levels. They focus on community-led development, giving the community the chance to shape development in the area, to provide genuinely affordable homes for local people. The income stream is reinvested back in to the local community for generations to come.”
Also pictured is Amherst Homes who took home the sought after Small Development of the Year Award. States Commercial Property lawyer Sophie Harriman: “The Carters Farm Barns development stands head and shoulders above what we have come to consider as usual new build developments. They have carefully and exquisitely converted grade 2 listed buildings and barns into stylish and modern homes while enhancing their original character; delivering contemporary country living to those lucky enough to have secured a new home on this development.”
