It is one of eight nominations for Best One Off House or Small Development, while its builder, MJ Windass Building and Roofing of Carlisle, is in line for the Best Small Builder award.

The awards will be presented at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton tomorrow and the winners will go through to the national awards later in the year.
