Origin Housing shortlisted for two First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards 2022

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in two categories: Best Large Development and Best Show Home at this year’s First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards!

The First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards are some of the most acclaimed in the industry, and we couldn’t be more proud to be recognised again this year.

The awards are decided by public vote, so we would like to ask you to please vote for us!

Best Large Development

This award is for developments of more than 80 homes that have used the best design and quality to create an affordable, desirable and inspirational environment and that have provided additional facilities to benefit the local community and surrounding neighbourhoods. These homes are in large developments in a mixed-tenure environment, or stand-alone developments.

Harrow & Wealdstone Heights, located in the heart of a popular north London neighbourhood, is a brand-new collection of 81 contemporary one, two and three bedroom Shared Ownership apartments in Harrow, perfect for first-time buyers, families and professionals alike. Located a short walk from a major transport hub – Harrow & Wealdstone station – the development offers high quality living for first time buyers, in an enviable location. Eighteen stories at its tallest, Harrow and Wealdstone Heights’ modern, open-plan apartments will give residents sweeping panoramic views across London, with every apartment also providing access to a private balcony. A further communal roof terrace offers a unique vantage point from which residents can enjoy views of the London skyline. Eco credentials include a ground source heat pump and solar panels used to power communal lighting.

Best Show Home

This award goes to the company with the best show home allowing the buyer to see the property to its maximum potential, giving them a realistic insight into their new home.

We have commissioned a stunning, deco-inspired show home to help market Harrow and Wealdstone Heights, a landmark new development of 81 shared ownership homes in Harrow, north west London. The second show home for independent designer Tara Larkin, the space captures the liveliness of the exciting surrounding neighbourhood. Featuring a range of sumptuous and lush fabrics, as well as a wealth of items that have been sourced locally, the spirit of the space is fun and playful, showcasing how first time buyers can reflect their own individual style in their first home. The designer drew inspiration from the history of the surrounding area, once known as “metro-land”, and the 1930s-designed Harrow and Wealdstone station, moments from the development. With this in mind, the designer envisaged a modern twist on deco, which would capture fast-moving style and the excitement of owning one’s own home.
