Hosted by Lord William Hague and taking place at the five star Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, the distinguished ceremony included over 1,700 housebuilding professionals from across the UK.
House 8, the show house at Merchant Terrace in Hammersmith, W6, is part of a row of eight, white-stucco fronted terraced townhouses, each comprising four bedrooms, open-plan kitchen/dining areas, luxuriously designed bathrooms and three terraces, including a rooftop terrace with far reaching views across London. An underground car park, accessed via a car lift, also provides private, secure and convenient access to each home.
The Whathouse? 2016 judges report, comments:
“An underground car park with access to each of the houses offers security and is a rare benefit in this part of London… The plans are well thought out and offer many features that make these houses very attractive. There is a large, flexible open-plan family area, behind which is a cloakroom, utility area and stairs to the garage. A well-designed open staircase leads to the first floor with its reception room with a large, private roof terrace. To the front is a study with French doors. There are two bedrooms and a huge, well-detailed bathroom on the second floor, with a spacious master suite on the top floor that has the benefit of a large west facing balcony.”
“The judges were impressed with the roof terrace at the very top that is large enough for some serious entertaining. Indeed, the two terraces make this a very special house. The finishes are a high standard and a subtle hierarchy of different sized doors and skirtings in the higher status areas underpin the thought and attention to detail that has gone into this house. Lighting is sophisticated with features like pelmet lights to the bath.”
Mani Khiroya, Managing Director, said:
“We are absolutely delighted Merchant Terrace has been recognised as a winner in the Best House category. Formerly a commercial distribution centre, the scheme has rejuvenated this quiet street and provided both high quality housing for new residents and commercial office space for local business.”
The success at this year’s Whathouse? Awards marked the only house within zones 1 and 2 of London to receive an accolade in this category.
“The award is further testament to our desire to build innovative and inspiring homes across London, with thoughtful design details and considered spaces that maximise light and usability. We are incredibly proud to have been commended and look forward to producing more impressive new homes in the years to come”
