For the more adventurous buyer.


Build your home yourself

With Self-Build you simply buy a fully-serviced plot for which we have already obtained a pre-approved planning consent for a home on it that meets an approved design code.  The design code lays down the maximum size/height of the home, where it can be located on the plot, and what materials it can be built from. 

Choosing Self-build

Providing you stay within the parameters of the design code you can design/build your home without having to get a planning consent.

If you have the skills, you can build the home yourself.  Alternatively, you can select your own builder or we can build it for you.

If you need a mortgage we can help you to source a self-build mortgage. 

The plot price includes all the planning obligations, the installation of services to the plot boundary, and the construction of the roads leading to the plot. With Self-Build you will only pay Stamp Duty on the price of the plot which can be a significant saving.

As a guide, the cost of constructing a 4-bed detached home for you on one of the self-build plots is about £200K.
