Property Round-Up: Award Winners
With the Oscars upon us we've rolled out the red carpet for a shortlist of properties which are award winners in their own right, were designed by award winning architects or were once owned by an Academy Award nominee.
Best Motion Picture
Designed by the owners in conjunction with Lachie Stewart of ANTA, Creel Lodge won a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) award in 2010. A light and spacious family home with open plan sitting, dining and kitchen areas, it has a stunning interior which you can see more of in the property movie. Get your popcorn ready as this cinematic experience also includes some superb drone footage of Creel Lodge’s waterside setting in Littleferry in the Highlands and features some spectacular views over the Loch Fleet estuary and surrounding landscape.
Award Winning Architect
Also designed by an award winning architect is the dramatic and modern The Duncan House. Designed to merge seamlessly into the formal geometry of its situation - the walled fruit garden of the Kinloch Estate - the Duncan House was designed by Gareth Hoskins OBE, who sadly died in January. Almost half of the external walls of this inspirational home are glass maximising daylight and rooting the house deeply in the garden that surrounds it. A design masterpiece.
A little bit of Hollywood stardust now with a Perthshire property commissioned by and built for an Oscar nominated director! Charles Crichton is best know for his work on Ealing comedies including “The Lavender Hill Mob” and “The Titfield Thunderbolt” as well as “A Fish Called Wanda” – for which he received two Oscar nominations in the Best Director and best Original Screenplay categories. A Norwegian log cabin with a turf roof, Tarka enjoys an attractive rural setting and panoramic vistas of surrounding countryside.
