Property developer Freeman Homes‘ recent run of award success continues, as it collected the Best Small Housebuilder (silver) accolade in the prestigious 2017 WhatHouse? Awards.
The second-generation family business, who has proud roots in Gloucestershire, won the award at the 36th WhatHouse? Awards, which is the largest event of this nature in the UK housebuilding industry.
This recognition for Freeman Homes joins its ever-growing list of accolades. In the last month alone, Freeman Homes has won three awards: Best Residential Development (five stars) in the UK Property Awards 2017/18, Best Small New Housing Development (West of England) in the LABC Excellence Awards 2017 and now this WhatHouse? title.
This year’s gala luncheon and award ceremony took place on Friday 17th November, at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel where more than 1,600 senior figures from the new homes industry were in attendance.
