Designed to make life better

We know how to design homes that people are proud to call their own. 

Our designs incorporate feedback from our purchasers who tell us exactly what they are looking for in a new home. We combine this feedback with our own experience and expertise to build homes that are not only beautiful to look at but which also function well around the needs of the modern family.
 
We provide the ‘space to grow’ that families need. 

Many of our homes have ensuite bathrooms, so that the adults can have somewhere uncluttered to escape to. They also feature kitchens in which you can watch the kids playing while you cook, good-sized bedrooms and loads of storage so that you’ll be able to find your possessions, rather than trip over them. 

See below just some of the ways in which our good design will enhance your family's life:
  

Interiors that work

Research suggests the majority of families prefer open-plan living; so many of our homes are designed with large open rooms at the back of the property that are ideal for day-to-day living, family gatherings and entertaining. That said, open plan is not for everyone, so we also design homes with a separate formal dining room for those that want one.


Details that make a difference

We know that it’s the details that make the difference and we take this into account in our designs. You’ll therefore find useful little features such as radiator valves positioned above the floor to make vacuuming easier. We also specify generous-sized windows to make the most of the light, fit stylish coving and lay mono-block driveways for the majority of our new homes. 


Space for everyone

We offer properties of all sizes, from starter homes up to large villas. Whatever the style, you’ll find that we build our houses with good-sized rooms where there is space to stretch out and enjoy life. We know that there’s nothing worse than feeling that a room is too small. Most of our homes also come with a single or double garage and a utility room – extra practical space that makes a real difference.


Loads of storage

Again and again, people tell us that you can never have enough storage. That’s why we provide loads of fitted wardrobes in most of our homes, provide bathrooms with good-sized vanity cupboards and design our kitchens to maximise space and storage. You’ll find there’s a place for everything – so you can put everything in its place and say ‘goodbye’ to clutter.


Safety designed in

There is nothing more important than knowing that your family is safe and that’s why the layouts of all our developments are designed with pedestrian safety in mind. Traffic calming measures, such as speed bumps, are put in where necessary and everything is done to make it easy for people to get around safely on foot.


Expert advice

Our show homes are designed by John Amabile (the host of TV’s 60 Minute Make Over) and his design partner Carol Yates.  They showcase the latest in interior design to inspire our purchasers. Buyers are always invited to meet the designers when we launch a new show home. We also offer a professional interior design consultation service (as an optional extra) to help our buyers create their own ‘designer pad’.


Beautiful gardens

While interior space is key, we also know how important having a good-sized garden is, especially for a growing family. That’s why our garden sizes are generous - to help you make the most of the outdoors. Many homes also feature wide patio doors that open between the garden and family room – allowing your family’s life to spill outside when the weather’s good.
