About Us

Headed by James Ottewell and Annabel Keeves, we work to ensure the properties we deliver reflect the local vernacular and needs of the local community. We do this, where possible, by identifying requirements and using high quality building materials, to include clay tiles, cast iron rain water, natural stone and green oak . We hope to help create lasting and timeless properties that settle into the community and environment effortlessly.
