Colebrook Collection Scoops A Trio Of Best Homes Awards

Date: Friday 28 May 2010

Our Taylor Wimpey North Thames region has collected a hat-trick of awards for an iconic development of luxury homes in Islington, which blends the best of Georgian architecture with stunning contemporary design.

The Colebrooke Collection, 11 homes built on the site of a Victorian former school in Colebrooke Row, picked up awards in the ‘Best Large Family Home’, ‘Best Small Family Home’ and ‘Best Small Development’ categories at the recent New Home Awards.

Speaking after the prestigious ceremony, Duncan Jackson, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, said: “Collecting three awards for one small development is an outstanding achievement, and one which has filled us with pride.

“The Colebrook Collection lies within a beautiful Conservation Area, which required everyone involved to draw on specialist skills and ensure each detail was in keeping with the unique location, while at the same time providing all the modern comforts that today’s homebuyers look for.

“That we succeeded in both aspects is revealed in how quickly homes within the collection sold, and in receiving high praise from the New Homes Awards judges.”

The Colebrooke Collection comprises a trio of five-storey Georgian townhouses and two luxury apartments fronting onto Colebrooke Row, which have restored the elegant sequence of the existing Grade II Listed streetscape.

Six further townhouses have been set back from the road, offering a modern take on the traditional family home, by reinterpreting classical Georgian architecture into state-of-the-art design.

Inside, each property was given elegant and individual finishing touches by interior designer Tessa Ashley Miller.

The development was so popular all properties have now been sold.


The London Evening Standard New Homes Awards ceremony took place in the Dorchester’s grand ballroom on Friday 14th May.

Now in their 19th year, the coveted awards recognise, celebrate and reward excellence in the home building industry.
