Mount Anvil Scoops Top Evening Standard Award

Mount Anvil's Barnsbury Place development in Islington has won the top accolade for the best conversion in the 2011 London Evening Standard New Homes Awards.

Barnsbury Place, a mix of new build and conversion of Edwardian school buildings, won first prize in the large developer category.  The Evening Standard described it as:  "A unanimous choice, with all the reader judges saying they would like to live there.  It is an attractive development of houses and apartments that has been built on the site of an Edwardian school, with many of the original features retained, including tiles, stairs and the carved "boys" and "girls" entrance signs."

Killian Hurley, Chief Executive said:  "This is an outstanding accolade from the London Evening Standard, recognising Mount Anvil's absolute commitment to design and quality.  The unanimous decision and comments by the reader judges that they would like to live there is an excellent endorsement of this.  Our buyers agree  -  we sold out in just over a year and Barnsbury Place was recognised as the best selling scheme in Islington in 2010."
