Alexander Bruce Estates Ltd. is a privately owned development company headed by James Ottewell, Annabel Keeves and Izzy Wright. Our principle focus is to deliver prestigious and high quality homes and business accommodation within exceptional buildings and locations.

We work on a personal level with specialist departments of the Local Planning Authorities, to include Conservation Area Officers. Our aim is to develop each site and each property to a distinctive character and personality. A purchaser can have the opportunity to fit-out the interior of each home to an individual bespoke finish, subject to early reservation, terms and conditions to apply.
