Get To Know Series – UK Developers
In this series, we showcase many of the UK Developers work with. The UK market is full of quality developers with proven track records and who are working hard to solve the housing crisis, despite the hinders placed by Government at every level.
The innovative customer and investor-focused property developer
Bastien Jack a privately-owned property developer who is growing fast. Employing an innovative and customer-focused approach to building quality homes in the middle tier of the sector. The owners have been developing property for more than 20 years, and offer investment opportunities rarely available through other property developers.
Homes for owners and investors
Bastien Jack – named after the owners’ first-born sons – develop homes that are designed to be both modern and attractive. They build for first-time buyers, families, and private investors, in developments designed to be sustainable and grow with the area.
Their unique approach to developing begins with extensive research into areas that they feel may benefit from the strongest property fundamentals – shops, schools, transport links, major employers and major investment. By doing this, they ensure they develop in places where people want to live, and which provide the lifestyle benefits that today’s tenants desire.
Providing homes with details taken care of
Having found and purchased the ideal land and gained planning permissions, Bastien Jack’s team takes pride in designing spacious homes that maximise the customer’s chosen room layout.
Included in each home is everything from small details such as multiple TV sockets in the lounge, to fully integrated appliances as standard: fridge/freezers; washer/dryers; dishwashers; ovens and hobs. You’ll find solid doors are finished with quality Ironmongery. Pricing includes all carpets and hardwood floors.
Developing sustainable homes in sustainable communities
Bastien Jack uses modern materials and methods of construction to minimise energy footprints. According to www.new-homes.co.uk, a new home built to the latest building regulations could save the owner/tenant as much as £780 per year in energy costs when compared to an older home.
Bastien Jack homes are green and clean. Perfectly proportioned, and built in fantastic locations that should support families for generations to come.

Current Bastien Jack developments

Edward Benefer Way, King’s Lynn
Bastien Jack is developing a site bordering on Edward Benefer Way, to the north-west of King’s Lynn town centre.
King’s Lynn is a strong economic centre where there is a diverse employment base. Bastien Jack’s site is within walking distance of the town centre and train station. While at the same time it’s only a few minutes away from the Norfolk coastline destination Hunstanton and The Queen’s picturesque Sandringham Estate. With great schools and shops nearby, this site is perfect for both young couples and families.
Once part of an old fuel depot, the site will provide 95 two, three, and four-bedroom homes.

Banners Mill lies close to the river Tees less than a quarter of a mile from the centre of the historic market town, Barnard Castle. The town provides a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. And is often referred as the ‘Gateway to Teesdale’ with many renowned beauty spots close at hand.
In the area, two recent developments totalling 185 units are selling fast. Underpinning the solid foundations of demand in the area. Barnard Castle is a town with a diverse employment base. The major employer is GlaxoSmithKline, which has invested more than £80 million into its plant since 2007.
