Ash Moseley Homes has scored the top award at the 2020 Master Builders Far North Queensland Housing and Construction Awards for a luxury waterfront home at the Bluewater Estate in Trinity Park.

Known as Ragamuffin House with a price tag of up to $2 million, the spacious home was among more than 35 builders, projects and individuals to be recognised at the livestreamed event on August 21. 

Master Builders’ Far North Queensland Manager Sharon Vella congratulated the winners. 

“There’s never been a more important time for us to recognise the people and businesses that are doing great things in our industry,” Ms Vella said. 

“The Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards are the perfect chance to do this and we were blown away with the number and quality of entries we saw this year, despite the challenges COVID-19 has presented. 

“We’re a proud and resilient community and this year’s projects proved we can and will tackle whatever comes our way, head on.”
