Baker Estates has won two prestigious Housebuilder Awards in London last night seen by the industry as the leading national event of the year.

Baker Estates is one of the fastest growing companies in the area, having grown to 62 employees in three years. Based in Decoy Industrial estate, Newton Abbot, the company is currently building and selling in eight locations throughout the south west.

The south west housebuilder won Best Design for ‘Three Storey or Fewer’ category for its widely regarded Great Court Farm development in Totnes, as well as highly commended in the Small Housebuilder of the Year category.

The glittering awards, held at The InterContinental Hotel at the O2, showcased the best projects across the UK’s construction and property industry. Over 1500 people attended the evening’s ceremony which was hosted by comedian and TV presenter Dara O’Briain.

Ian Baker, managing director of Baker Estates, said: “To win two national awards in one night is just fantastic news for our team. This is a complete team award as so many people play a vital role in bringing a quality site to fruition.”

Ian added: “We pride ourselves on building exceptional homes in the most desirable locations throughout the South West of England. The Baker Estates’ vision is one of dedication, originality and forward thinking.”

The winning development is situated within easy reach to Totnes and offers stunning east facing views of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Apart from its unique location, Great Court Farm boasts outstanding architecture which has enabled Baker Estates to combine striking looking designed homes with generous internal space.

The development offers a stunning collection of 2, 3, 4, and 5-bedroom homes, as well as a mixed tenure of different designs  - coach houses, bungalows, traditional houses and barn style bungalows – reveals just how far Baker Estates was prepared to go to shape a unique development at Great Court Farm.
