Bloor Homes – ideal locations and unique properties


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.

Amazing opportunities from this privately-owned property developer

Bloor Homes builds around 2,000 homes every year. They are currently more than 70 sites in which it is developing across seven regions of England. As a property developer, Bloor Homes provides some of the most extensive internal and external options for home personalisation. It builds characterful homes that are deliberately designed with higher-than-usual ceilings, lighter-than-usual rooms, and with a personal, human touch. They call this the ‘Bloor Difference’.

One of the largest privately-owned property developers in the UK

Bloor Homes is now one of the largest privately-owned property developers in the UK. With regional operations covering the North West, Eastern, Midlands, South Midlands, Western, Southern, and South West regions. It is headquartered in Measham, as it has been since the company was founded in 1969.

The height of property personalisation

Bloor wants every one of its customers to benefit from buying a home, rather than a house. It has one of the most extensive options packages available, allowing personalisation of every room in the house and a range of landscaping and security choices outside. Its options brochure is a massive 80 pages.

Choices include top-of-the-range appliances from Siemens and Bosch, space-saving wardrobes in bedrooms, a variety of finishes and furnishings for bathrooms, and a full range of flooring, doors, windows and skylights. External landscaping is individualised with lawn, paving, patios, fences, and security features.

Developments and employees regularly recognised

Bloor is regularly recognised for the quality of its properties and its employees. Its site managers are perennial winners in NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Many of its developments win accolades from various industry bodies. For example, Gatewen Village picked up the prize for the best development of 51 units or more in the North at Bricks 2016 organised by LABC Warranty. To win this award, the property developer must demonstrate high standards of technical competency and build quality, as well as excellent organisational skills and customer service. It is the third year running that LABC Warranty has recognised Gateway Village.

A property everywhere, for everyone

Bloor’s developments across England and its approach to creating individual homes that create memories mean that there is a Bloor home to suit most people. Many of its developments are ideally located for commuters and benefit from the local amenities and facilities desired for modern lifestyles. We highlight two such developments below. A taste of the incredible investment potential when an investor buys a Bloor home.

Walpole Meadows, Stansted Mountfitchet, Cambridgeshire

Commuters will love this development. By road, it is within five miles of the M11 and Stansted Airport. London is around 45 minutes by road and 50 minutes by train from Stansted Mountfitchet railway station.

In the town, you’ll find a vibrant high street with a range of local independent shops and businesses, a short walk from the development. It’s also an ideal location for foodies. There is great range of cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby.

There are two primary schools and a secondary school, leisure facilities, a swimming pool, and plenty of green open space.

The development benefits from stunning rural views. The range of quality homes built includes two-bedroom bungalows and three to five-bedroom homes. There are landscaped areas, play areas for children, allotments, and land set aside for a new school in the future. Perfect for commuting professionals and growing families.

Saxon Gate, Crewe, Cheshire

Close to open countryside, in a perfect location for commuters, and an ideal place to raise a family – this is Saxon Gate.

Crewe offers unrivalled transport links. The HS2 line due in 2027 will reduce train journey to London from 1 hour 35 minutes to less than an hour. Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow will all be easily accessible.

Chester is only 20 minutes away. M6 is less than five miles. For shoppers, there are several shopping centres in Crewe and indoor and outdoor markets. Crewe’s main shopping centre is only five minutes’ walk from Crewe Bus Station.

Two to four-bedroom homes offer buyers access to some of the best-located properties in the North West. And with the investment taking place in infrastructure and transport, this advantage is likely only to improve.
