A HEREFORDSHIRE Border Oak home has won two national awards for its timeless style.

Redgate House, in Eardisland, won the best self-build in the Daily Telegraph Homebuilding and Renovating Awards for its Border Oak architecture.

It also won readers choice as voted by the public.

John and Patsy Greene are the owners of the £600,000 oak-framed self-build.

Mr Greene, who is the founder of Border Oak, was described as an oak frame pioneer by Daily Telegraph.

From daring extensions and stylish renovations to innovative self builds, and everything in-between, the tenacity and creativity showcased in this year's shortlist has wowed the judges, said a spokesperson from the awards.

He and his wife, Patsy, have built a timeless home inspired by Mr Greene's career and the arts and crafts movement, said the spokesperson.

The couple were said to be "shocked" and "thrilled" at the accolade.

"We were especially delighted to receive the reader's choice which is voted for by the public as its lovely to know that other people like what we have built," they said.

The awards mean a lot to the pair as they feel it is well deserved recognition for the incredibly hard-working teams who helped bring their vision to fruition, said Mr Greene.

"Redgate House and the awards are a testament to their skills, craftsmanship, dedication, and workmanship," he said.

"They all carried on through the tricky Covid lockdowns and were a joy to have involved.

"Hopefully the awards are also a wonderful celebration of Herefordshire design, businesses, manufacturing, innovation, craftsmanship and products and can showcase what the talented Herefordshire housing industry does so well.

"Winning these awards means a great deal to Patsy and I - we love our home very much and to know that the judges felt the same is fantastic."
