A different approach to designing and building homes

With us, you can expect the right home in the right place. We pay equal attention to the inside and outside. You have generous, thoughtfully designed interior spaces – our three-bedroom homes are typically a similar size to other developers’ four-bedroom homes.

We consider the exterior surroundings carefully, creating visual interest, private and public spaces, and all the amenities you need for modern living. Our developments have a strong sense of place, and of purpose.

We’re also committed to sustainable, low carbon design and construction – and have been for many years. We lead where larger developers are unlikely to follow, building energy efficiency and environmental safeguards into many details of every home.

Partnerships with renowned landowners

The Duchy of Cornwall, the Rothschild Foundation, the Earl of Moray, the Earl of Fife, and Homes England. These are just some of the renowned landowners who trust us to create new communities with them.

For over a decade, we’ve been working with them, taking their vision as the starting point and contributing our knowledge of what homebuyers are looking for, and how to build it to exacting standards. Like us, these long-term partners care about making places to live, not just building boxes.

Together, we want new homes to have a positive, progressive influence on the environment – and to enhance the lives of the people who move into them.

The creative use of different architectural styles

We work closely with renowned architects to design places that look and feel like nowhere else. The style can be ultra modern or very traditional – but whatever we do, we do it like no other developer.

We’ve developed a contemporary take on the Arts and Crafts style, which promoted high-quality design and craftsmanship in the 19th century. You'll find our eco villages take respect for the environment as the starting point for truly ground-breaking design.

As part of this diverse design approach, we also offer a wide choice of shapes and sizes to all kinds of people. Whether you're a first-time buyer, a growing family wanting up to six bedrooms or a downsizer looking for a spacious, well-located apartment, you'll appreciate the pleasures of living in a highly distinctive home.

Attention to the details that make your life better

What do you want from your home? How do you use different spaces? What’s important for the way you live? We ask our customers these questions and more, and use the answers to keep improving the way we design and build.

This means there’s a good reason for everything. Room dimensions and layouts. Ceiling heights. The shape, size and position of windows and doors. Storage space. The design of joinery, fixtures and fittings, and the materials we use for them.

Even gardens, paths, parking and other outside areas come under the same level of scrutiny. We think about how will you use and enjoy them, what it's like to arrive home and what can you see from your window.

We put ourselves in your shoes and investigate what it’s really like to live in each home and place we build.
