NHBC Double Awards

Be proud! Well done, Colin

The NHBC’s Pride in the Job awards scheme celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2020 and we’re thrilled to reveal that our own Colin Richardson has won one of the coveted prizes for his work on our Cowslip Lane development in Gamlingay.

The Pride in the Job awards recognise the vital contribution of site managers to the housebuilding process and their contribution to the quality of the end product. The NHBC says that: “Winning site managers demonstrate incredible dedication, passion, commitment and leadership to produce homes of exceptional quality.”

Colin’s dedication and attention to detail, combined with his management abilities and expert building knowledge, earned him the award, and everyone at MJ Hillson is incredibly proud of his accomplishment. Company founder Michael Hillson said: “I am extremely proud of our company’s history and the huge achievements we have experienced over many years building outstanding homes, and today your dedication to build the perfect home is contributing significantly in our company’s ability to continue with this aim.”

Unfortunately, owing to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, Colin won’t be able to attend a live event marking the next round of judging. However, Colin’s win proves that whatever the situation in the wider world, Maulden Vale remains committed to putting quality at the top of our agenda.

Well done, Colin!


Ivy Farm Development - Maulden Vale

Ivy Farm Development

Your new home in beautiful rural England – the perfect space to
live, work or retire

We’ve all spent a lot more time at home during 2020… and realised how important outside space and fresh air is for our wellbeing. Many of us have also decided to move out of cities and overcrowded suburbs, but want to retain the ease and style of contemporary living and also be able to work from home. 

Ivy Farm in Tebworth offers the perfect package: amazing views of unspoiled countryside combined with modern design and construction, in a village location. Situated on the edge of the Bedfordshire village of Tebworth, the three plots at Ivy Farm offer generous living space, large private gardens and open fields on the doorstep. Good plots like these in the countryside are few and far between. 

Our new homes at Ivy Farm are individually designed and based on the footprint of the original farm barns. However, they’re not “barn conversions” – each property will be rebuilt from scratch using high-quality materials and the latest energy-efficient techniques. We have also focused on creating comfortable home-office spaces, reflecting how so many of us now spend our working hours. 

The single-storey property occupies an “L” shape, with two impressive bedroom suites at each end, open-plan living/dining space on the corner and a separate room for work or relaxation. Meanwhile, the stunning pair of homes cleverly gains maximum ceiling height, making the most of the barns’ barrelled roof space, by putting the bedrooms and utility on a lower ground floor and the living space on the first floor, creating stunning vistas outside the rooms where you’ll spend the most time. Each property has two beautiful bedroom suites , with a further two double bedrooms as well as sensibly sized home offices.

The three gated community dwellings will be reached by driving through electric gates, along a secluded, landscaped driveway providing you with glorious privacy. In addition, each home has a large double garage, ideal for parking two cars and storage.

When you buy a plot and build this way it also gives you the chance to work with us to create your ideal living space, that will take to another level the exceptional quality and craftsmanship
of this Mauden Vale project. You’ll be creating both a home and
an asset.

It’s the ideal time to make the move to a property that gives you both a countryside escape and a place to work or retire – come and see Ivy Farm and we’ll create your next home together.
