The national WhatHouse? Awards 2018 took place on Friday 16th November, at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London and we’re delighted to announce that Fleur Developments won the Gold Award for Best Small Housebuilder.
These prestigious awards are generally viewed as the Oscars of the building industry and a huge honour to win. With comedian Jack Whitehall and sports commentator, Gabby Logan, both acting as compares, it was every inch the stellar event.
The judges of the WhatHouse? Awards clearly understood Fleur’s ethos, specifying that it was Fleur’s use of quality, local materials, generosity with space and light, attractive landscaping and refusal to compromise on the aesthetics that made them an outstanding winner.
Fleur’s entry featured five of our developments – Foundry Field in Burnham Market, Parishes in Weybourne, Greencroft in Blakeney, Lady Fisher’s Field in Risby and Sea Glass in Brancaster Staithe.
Founder and Design Director, Juliette Hopkins, commented:
“We’re absolutely delighted to have won this award and to have our passion for building good-looking homes recognised nationally. As a design-led housebuilder, we are driven by our ethos of ‘Lovingly Made Luxury’ and care deeply about our mark on the landscape.”
Fleur Hill was delighted to be short listed for the Mayor’s Design Awards 2018 for our Foundry Field development in Burnham Market.
The awards celebrate local architectural excellence and craftsmanship and are presented every two years. The awards focus on how a development successfully reflects and enhances its environment and this was something we had strived exceptionally hard to achieve at Foundry Field. As such, we were delighted when this recognised by the Design Awards judges.
The idea of owning a Fleur home within beautiful Brancaster Staithe has proved a very appealing prospect. Much to our delight, we sold all 3 plots at 3@TheWillows and 7-out-of-10 open-market homes at Northshore Place before work had commenced on either site. Testimony to the reputation Fleur has for building well-designed and stylish collections in the loveliest of spots.
Work has now begun at both sites and we are making good progress.
With Plots 8, 10 & 12 at Northshore Place available, if you would like to find out more, please contact Sowerbys on 01328 730340 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The brochure is also available for download on the Northshore Place section of this website.
Set to provide Burnham Market with a whole new dining experience, Socius restaurant will be opening in one our charming retail barns at Foundry place in early March 2018.
With a reputation for producing exquisite cuisine, Socius will offer a British take on tapas and guests will be able to watch the chefs at work in the open plan restaurant. Open Wednesday-to-Sunday for lunch and dinner, Socius-style brunch and ‘Social Sunday’ will both feature at weekends.

We are very proud of our Foundry Field development in Burnham Market and were delighted when Fleur Hill, along with our planning partners, Pegasus Group, were awarded the Royal Town Planning Institute’s East of England Award for Planning Excellence 2017.
Foundry Field was a landmark development in Burnham and a key part of the planning process was to understand the needs of the village, as well as sensitively reflect its charm and character. As a result the site not only includes traditional brick and flint homes, but a car park, generous green spaces and thoughtful landscaping.
