An interior designer based in East Drayton has won a coveted award.

Jamie Hempsall collected the Best Interior Design - North East at the UK Property Awards.

He won the award for his project The Beeches, a four story Victorian Villa in Lancashire.

This was a renovation project involving 27 rooms and was completed over a two year period. It transformed an unloved residence with a large number of redundant rooms and a layout more suitable to a family with a large domestic staff into a stylish, warm and modern home designed to keep the family close to each other, despite the size of the house. The design included an eco-friendly pellet boiler to power under-floor heating.

“I am absolutely delighted, it shows that good design is alive and kicking outside the M25,” said Jamie.

“It is always thrilling to get good feedback from your clients, but to achieve an accolade judged by your peers in the property industry is especially rewarding.”

Stuart Shield, chairman of the International Property Awards said: “In our quest to find the most outstanding projects and property professionals from around the world we were fascinated to discover that the total value of the award winning projects was over $100 billion.”

“There are some incredibly strong roots being established for the future growth and generation of properties that are more attractive to look at, safer, kinder to the environment, smarter and able to deliver a better quality of life for those who live and work in them.”

The awards were held at the Lancaster London Hotel.
