The WhatHouse? Awards is the country’s biggest event that celebrates the very best homes. This year’s event took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London’s Park Lane, with more than 1600 senior industry figures attending the ceremony to celebrate the winners of 20 different categories, covering the wide spectrum of property types and companies in the home building industry. The 37th year of the event was presented by comedian Jack Whitehall, former rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio, and TV presenter, Gabby Logan.

We were absolutely delighted to be presented with the Gold Award for Best Retirement Development. The winning Redwood Retirement Village in Bristol is our 2nd Audley scheme that we have designed as a complete new build – having already built a stylish development from scratch at award-winning Audley Chalfont Dene. We aimed to create a sense of history and grandeur, and so Redwood is focused around a ‘brand new’ manor house, Redwood Hall, with grand columns and a portico, built in a neo-classical and Georgian style. The results of this beautiful retirement village couldn’t have been achieved without members of our team at Gaunt Francis working closely in partnership with the interior designers for the scheme Inside Design Co., Project Management and cost consultants Quartz, Landscape Architects Solty’s Brewster and Services Engineers Q Design.

Here is how the WhatHouse? judges described our design at Redwood: “Packed with wow-factor furnishings, it generates a welcoming vibrancy designed to bring its community together and make owners feel special. All the way from its airy spacious reception area through to the restaurant, the space flows easily”.
