A prestigious prize has been awarded to Taylor Wimpey East London for a garden at its Cook’s Shipyard development of new properties in Wivenhoe, Essex.

The leading housebuilder is celebrating scooping the award for a stunning showhome garden at Cook’s Shipyard, its unique collection of waterfront homes in Wivenhoe.

The striking garden of the ‘Morley Special’ showhome was designed to capture the essence of the laid-back coastal lifestyle on offer at the development of new homes for sale in Wivenhoe – with grasses echoing the Essex tidal marshland and an old rowing boat mounted on pebbles as a stunning centrepiece.

This imaginative design was rewarded with a silver award in the Best Show House Garden category of the New Homes Garden Awards, which celebrates excellence in garden and landscape design.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We really pulled out all the stops to create a fabulous showhome garden at our development in Wivenhoe and are thrilled to have won this prestigious award.

“The garden is perfectly in keeping with this superior collection of Wivenhoe properties, which reflect the proud architectural traditions of the town’s conservation area and the shipbuilding heritage of the site.

“With the eye-catching maritime-themed design serving as a striking focal point for the development, the garden has also provided inspiration for purchasers looking to create their own practical low-maintenance outdoor space at their new homes at Cook’s Shipyard.”

Cook’s Shipyard is part of the visionary regeneration of the former dockyard area in Wivenhoe and has been so popular with purchasers that it’s now a complete sell-out.

However, there’s a superb selection of new homes by Taylor Wimpey East London in nearby Colchester – at Praecedo, The Quarters and Blenheim Park – offering fantastic opportunities for buyers in a range of circumstances.

2, 3 and 4-bedroom new homes from £157,995
