Altrincham-based homebuilder Hillcrest Homes has picked up a top award at the Northern Design Awards.

Hillcrest won in the ‘Best New Build’ category for Riverside Place, a development of 13 Georgian inspired homes at Norbury’s Yard off King Street in Knutsford.

The trophy was awarded by head judge Wayne Hemmingway, of Red or Dead fame, at a glittering ceremony held at The Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Other judges on the esteemed awards panel included Linda Barker, George Bond, Nick Munro, Jan Constantine and HRH Princess Katarina.

Hillcrest’s development executive, Simone Milner, said: “We’re over the moon to have won this award for Riverside Place. The development was the result of over a decade of hard work and close collaboration with architects, planners, local estate agents and English Heritage.
