Solihull-headquartered Hayfield has won another major national award only three years since its inception. The firm scooped Best Family Home Under £750,000 at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2019, which were held in the Ballroom of the Dorchester Hotel. Now in its 28th year, the prestigious event - which was hosted by comedian Sean Lock and international rugby star James Haskell - is one of the key dates in the calendar for the residential development industry.

The winning home was the Bourton house at Hayfield Views in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Great Bourton. The Hallow house at Hayfield Meadow in Hallow, Worcestershire also made the coveted shortlist. 

Mark Booth, Managing Director of Hayfield said: “Given we have only been in business since 2016, it was a fantastic result to have two of our homes shortlisted for Best Family Home up to £750,000. We must have been up against all the best developments across the UK!

“When the judges came to visit, they seemed genuinely blown away by the build quality, attention to detail and the array of features that we include as standard, such as heritage bronze door furniture, underfloor heating, Roca/Laufen bathroom suites, instant hot taps, warming drawers and curved cabinets in our kitchens.

“Winning the title of Best Family Home under £750,000 is simply incredible! I am so proud of what we have achieved in such a short space of time. Full credit goes to Hayfield’s dedicated team which is passionate about striving for the highest quality standards.”

The Evening Standard judges’ remarks on the winning entry was: “This scenic new development of stone houses is a worthy addition to the ancient village of Great Bourton in the Cherwell Valley. Our value-for-money winner, The Bourton, has five bedrooms, a double garage and costs £575,000.” 

In addition to the Evening Standard Award, Hayfield was recognised at the 2018 WhatHouse? Awards as one of the UK’s Best Small Housebuilders. In the same year, the company scooped NHBC Pride in the Job Awards for Hayfield Chase in Tiddington, Stratford-upon-Avon and Hayfield Views in Great Bourton, Oxfordshire.

A flurry of sales at the double-award winning development has left only five properties remaining for sale out of a total of 43. With the scheme now nearing completion, a flourishing community has already been established at Hayfield Views, which is located off Main Street on the edge of the peaceful Oxfordshire village. Great Bourton is very popular with commuters, as Banbury Train Station is located only 4.7 miles away and can be reached by car in under 10 minutes. Fast train services take passengers to London in under an hour and to Oxford in under 20 minutes.

Hayfield specialises in building luxury family houses and has six live sites located in prime locations in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Approximately 200 executive homes will be delivered by the firm over the next 12 months.
