Self-Build - Surrounded by green open space

The life you’ve always dreamed of. The home you’ve always wanted.

There’s no need to be forced into a badly designed home. Self-build is for everyone – from first time buyers and growing families to those who are looking to downsize and create a legacy for future generations.

Graven Hill also offers you the chance to meet like-minded people and create a new community together in a pioneering development unlike anything you’ve seen in the UK.
