Getting to know us: what makes boutique developers a good choice?
Here at Hambridge Homes as a family-run business and boutique developer, we understand that buying a home, whether it is your first or your hundredth, is a big moment in your life. W offer a unique, and personalised service, from carefully selecting our community-based sites, to the final polish of your front door, every detail is attended to by us.
If you are looking for a new home, a boutique developer like us can offer you so much more than a big developer. Here’s our Top 5 reasons why we think you should consider becoming a Hambridge Homeowner.
1. We manage every stage of the project.
From site acquisition and planning, through to overseeing the sales process and providing after care for buyers, as Hambridge Homeowners you only deal with a specialised and friendly team as well as one that is completely focused on your needs.
Our passion for creating beautiful homes is at the forefront of our vision. Whilst the bigger developers build vast and many, we like to focus on design-led, innovative homes in locations that offer community as well as your own space.
As a boutique developer, we offer a tailored experience that you do not get from dealing with a bigger firm.
2. No hidden costs
Managing Director, James Overton explains: “Many developers charge extra for carpets, oak flooring or upgraded fixtures and fittings but at Hambridge Homes, everything is included in our sales price. Our exceptional product and after care is what has drawn purchasers to us over the years. At Hambridge Homes, we are proud to provide our buyers with beautifully finished, high quality homes.”
Becoming a Hambridge homeowner means you can benefit from our commitment to keep your costs down and transparent. For example, we offer paid stamp duty, Help to Buy, free parking spaces and in some schemes we even offer one year of free membership with ZipCar.
As well as this, we do not charge sky-high service charges that come with big developments with gyms and swimming pools so you have more control of how spend your money.
3. Completion time is timely!
Because the developments designed by us are not taking place on massive sites but rather, smaller, more community-focused sites, the completion time is shorter so they are ideal if you are looking for a place to move to sooner rather than later.
4. Communities, not towers
Bigger developments tend to be situated in busier neighbourhoods nearer noisy main roads, whereas Hambridge Homes, we focus on selecting development sites that will become communities. Because of this we try to pick quiet, leafier areas such as the ones where Elm Park Gardens and The Triangle are situated.
Once you have moved into your home, Hambridge homeowners find plenty of community benefits. Because there are fewer residents, there is far less noise and no long waiting times for lifts that you often find at large developments. In fact, because you will have only a handful of neighbours, Hambridge homeowners are more likely to strike up friendships and build a community.
5. Small actually means spacious and sumptuous!
Small also means beautiful in terms of design, offering spacious and sumptuous homes. The scale of Hambridge Homes’ boutique schemes allows our innovative construction and in-house interior design teams to focus on creating truly visionary, high-specification homes – not small units in vast 500-flat blocks.
At The Triangle, our design-led expertise has been applied to produce stunning layouts and bright living spaces. At Elm Park Gardens all the properties have parquet flooring throughout the living area, kitchen and entrance hall. All of our developments benefit from German engineered Pronorm fitted kitchens with Corian worktops with integrated Smeg appliances, and bathrooms with contemporary sanitaryware by Duravit.
So, at Hambridge Homes, when we say we offer a personal and friendly service, we really mean it. From the very start, we have always been a family affair. Building quality, ‘homely’ and cutting-edge homes is what we do and what we know. Everyone who works with us and for us share our values which is why we are an award-winning boutique developer.
