Del Mar, Calif. (June 27, 2022) – Selected from a field of 600 entries from around the world, Davidson Communities’ Davidson Collection and Waters Edge at Delta Coves has been honored as the Residential Collection of the Year by the home building industry’s oldest design awards competition, the Gold Nuggets. The award was presented to Davidson Communities on June 22 at the annual Pacific Coast Builders Conference in San Francisco. Other honors earned by Davidson Collection and Waters Edge include best single family detached home, for the Davidson Collection, Plan 1, the Edgewater.

Davidson Collection and Waters Edge at Delta Coves is situated along the canals of the California Delta in Bethel Island, Calif., about an hour from San Francisco. This one-of-a-kind waterfront collection features a private boat dock for each residence, as well as water-centric architecture and interior design.

Waters Edge at Delta Coves was selected in February 2022 as the nation’s Community of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders’ Nationals Awards (“The NationalsSM”) and then again in April 2022 as Community of the Year by the Building Industry Association of the Bay Area.

“We are honored to have earned the Triple Crown of Homebuilding,” said Bill Davidson, president of Davidson Communities. “The Nationals, the Bay Area MAME Awards, and now the Gold Nugget Awards showcase the best land planning, architecture, interior design and ultimately, the execution of all of these talented professionals in the finished product – the home itself. It’s a real honor and a tribute to our talented team to have earned top honors in all three of these industry competitions.”
