Snowdrop Place shortlisted in prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards

Frontier Estates and Barchester Healthcare are delighted to be shortlisted in the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2022.

The Pinders Healthcare Design Awards recognise excellence in the long-term care and independent living sectors. This year the categories have been updated to recognise the large teams involved in creating successful care spaces.

Property developer Frontier Estates and care operator Barchester Healthcare’s scheme, Snowdrop Place in Botley, Southampton, was shortlisted in the Best Architectural Design category by a panel of specialist judges including healthcare architects, interior designers, valuers, lenders and operators.


 “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for Best Architectural Design at the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design Awards 2022. As a developer and not an operator it is vitally important we provide the best possible design and quality within our finished homes. We listen to our operating partners and focus on building homes that exceed expectations and deliver first class care with the help of bespoke design solutions.
“Developing care homes for care operators has become a core focus of our business and we have built a passionate and hardworking team to procure well-designed, innovative, unique and beautiful homes for our care partners.”
Sam Rous, Development Director and Head of Healthcare for Frontier Estates



Both teams have worked closely together to develop and build the outstanding new care home which opened in July 2021 and provides bespoke person-centred residential, dementia and respite care in stunning surroundings. Resident well-being is at the heart of Barchester Healthcare and Snowdrop Place offers a café for socialising and enjoying freshly-baked treats, spa bathrooms for a luxury bath time experience, beautiful en-suite bedrooms with smart TVs, a choice of comfortable lounges, a dedicated activities room, a cinema for an authentic movie experience, and an in-house hair and beauty salon for a little bit of pampering.


“Snowdrop Place is an exceptional home in a beautiful location that offers a superb quality of life for our residents.   We are incredibly proud that it has been shortlisted for the Pinders design awards.  It was a fantastic project to work on with Frontier Estates, we couldn’t be happier with the finished result and neither could our residents, which is what really matters to us.”
When the shortlist was announced the judges said: “Great thought and attention to detail have been employed at Snowdrop Place in delivering a spacious 60 bedroom care facility with an excellent layout and styling.”
Grant Jensen, Senior Property Development Manager from Barchester Healthcare


“The home has been developed to provide best in class facilities for both residents and operator, and is a huge credit to all parties involved in bringing the scheme to fruition. The home will provide a quality care environment for the people of Botley and surrounding area for the foreseeable future. Snowdrop Place represents an important investment for TIME:Social Long Income and adds to its diverse range of social real estate assets.’’
The Pinders Healthcare Design Awards have helped to push forward improvements in care facilities and are now in their 23rd year. This year’s awards are planned to be held at the Royal Lancaster London Hotel in Paddington in March.”
James Murray, Portfolio Director for Investment Fund, ARC TIME Social Long Income PAIF
