LOCATION MEANS REPUTATION

We only build in aspirational locations. Nowhere else. Cathedral cities; coastal and riverside towns; market towns and archetypal English villages; places with enviable communication links. Enclaves characteristic of the area and cherished by customers.

THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING LOCAL

Our family of employees choose to live where we build. They do so because it is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. So, as a business, we have a self-imposed responsibility: to create beautiful homes and developments that enhance where we all choose to call home.

“We just don’t design homes on what’s easy to build. Instead, we carefully consider how people live in their home – how they will live their lives and what’s important to them.”

Rachel Davies - Design & Technical Director

“There’s land and there’s the land we select. We reject infinitely more options than we pursue. Because we only build in beautiful locations. Nowhere else. Locations that are characteristic of the area and cherished by customers.”

Steve Birch - Land Director

YOU GET MORE

We feel a new home should have an extensive list of quality specification features – both big and small- which are included, as standard, to make a customers’ home special…because we believe that’s the way a new home should be. Special.

DELIGHT IS IN THE DETAIL

Customers want their dream home to be special to them. An individual home. So, our house types differ site by site, looking to reflect the local vernacular, with further differentiating finishes.

WE HAVE A PURPOSE BEYOND PROFIT

We think a business should have a purpose beyond profit. We share a duty of care, to give back to the communities we build in and leave a legacy for future generations, whether that’s grants, affordable housing play areas or even building village halls.

That’s the Bargate way. We care.
