Want to add your own Finishing Touches?

One of the best things about buying a new home is that you can choose to personalise it to make it yours from the day you move in.

Once your plot is reserved, you can start adding your own style and personality to every room with our range of styling options, upgrades and additional fixtures. This is your chance to visualise your perfect living space and create your very own dream home from day one.

Your choices will be added to your home at various stages of the build process, meaning the earlier you reserve your plot, the greater the selection available to you.
