We love nothing more than welcoming guests on site and getting the chance to show off our fantastic homes and community.

Our most recent visitors were Homes England, an executive non-departmental government body, sponsored by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. Sharing our passion for self and custom building, the team was keen to see what life is like at Graven Hill, and some of unique homes we have on the site.

Make yourself at home

Homes England was given a taste of life in the community through a full tour of the site, including the wide range of homes we have to offer. Alongside our custom new builds and apartments, the team got to step inside one of our impressive self-build homes, which won “Best Brick Home” at the 2021 Build It Awards.

To top it all off, the Homes England team was also able to watch the delivery of an off-site manufactured home – an increasingly popular method of construction for many of our self-builders.

The perfect home for everyone

We know that self-building isn’t for everyone, which is why custom builds make up a crucial part of life at Graven Hill. Custom building enables people to choose the internal layout and fixtures when the home is purchased early on, providing personality without the commitment of a self-build project. No hard hats required!

Will German, home ownership director at Homes England said of the visit:

“Being able to see the diversity of homes at Graven Hill was inspiring. The development shows the wide range of possibilities for housing in the UK, when the needs of the buyer are put first. We believe that self and custom building will become an important part of the housing market in future, so we must continue to strive to make it an accessible option.”

Gemma Davis, our customer experience director added:

“We’ve always been passionate about providing people with homes that work perfectly for them. It was brilliant to show Homes England the progress we’ve made, and the variety of houses we have available. Putting choice at the core of the development has created a truly unique community, one that we hope will inspire others.”
