The Good House Company are a leading developer of stunning luxury homes and renovations.
Founded in 2008 we have built over 50 beautiful luxury homes, using the latest in energy-saving techniques, as well as using smart technology.
Buying a new build home need not be an anxious experience and our team will guide you through the process. Typically, our customers buy off-plan, which is no different from an already built home, but can have a huge say in how those plans are changed to suit their own needs.
We will be in constant contact with you throughout the process, not only to update you on exciting progress, but to guide you through the decisions you can make.
Building bespoke allows you to
Choose a date to complete that is right for you
Customise rooms and floor plans
Add garages, patios, extensions or sunrooms
Choose the kitchen, bathroom and tiles from an infinite selection
All wood finishes, staircases, skirting, coving, paintwork and tiling
Anything else you'd like? Just ask!
We keep you updated every step of the way and will guide your through the process as your home is built, giving you plenty of time to enjoy choosing the details.
Unlike most builders who count being bespoke as changing the colour of the carpets, we pride ourselves on being very customer led, allowing our customers the freedom to change and tailor their homes to suit their family and lifestyle.
We can accommodate changing floor plans, bathrooms, attic rooms and living areas, and can add sunrooms or offices within the home to allow for things like Sky TV, CAT 6 cabling and smart home technology, to name but a few.
You can choose exactly how you would like each room to be, from the layout to the paint.
Our process starts by meeting you and working with one of our Directors closely identifying any changes to the floor plans and superstructure – such as walls, doors and adding, removing or changing rooms.
We then move on to the kitchens and bathrooms, providing a generous budget to work with our chosen designers to create something just for you – whether you want an island, stove and so on. Then we move to things like floor finishes, tiles, carpets, doors, skirtings etc
Whether you want cupboards, wardrobes or sheds, the list goes on and you can pick from our very high spec range or choose something totally you.
Throughout the process we record all the changes in a spreadsheet which is shared, meaning every wish is captured and then delivered on and the process transparent.
Our homes are always built with a rural and country feel but are packed with the latest technology to make them easy to use, reduce utility bills and require very little maintenance, even years after they are complete.
Kits and Insulation
Here at The Good House Company we use traditional Timber Frame and Block construction.
We build our own bespoke kit panels to ensure quality which are designed to allow huge amounts of insulation bother internal and external to the kit –creating an almost passive house approach and a lot of additional structural timber minimising settlement and snagging. Our "U value" which is the measure of insulation - is more than three times the building standard.
We use solid concrete floors with Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation and underfloor heating to create a static and gentle, and ultimate low-cost heating method for your home.
With triple glazed windows our homes also heat themselves using the sun and let out a minimal amount of heat, far below building standards.
Smart / Connected Homes
Many of our developments have included FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) allowing ultra-fast broadband at home even in a rural setting.
Along with this is the chance to wire the home not just for internal networking but for smart lighting and appliances that our customers can request from manufactures such as Lightwave or Loxone.
The Good House Company has become synonymous with quality in terms of finish and design, and our homes are built to the exceptionally high standards that buyers should expect.
Our architecture reflects its rural setting, with pitched slate roofs, dormer windows, stonework and extensive private gardens creating a traditional countryside ambience, yet the homes incorporate all the contemporary features needed for optimum comfort and convenience.
We will work with you to create a highly bespoke home, using our experience and skills, together with your own ideas and choices.
From the styles of doors and handles to the type of data points
and even the positioning of internal walls, the house can be tailored to meet your particular taste and requirements.
All the houses are what we like to call "fully finished", i.e.: everything is ready for you to move in from the internal space to the garden. For more information on each individual house, you will find the detailed features listed in the brochure.
Each individual home comes with a “specification” which will list every element in detail and from which changes can be made.
