Age-exclusive homebuilder eyes record growth

Westcountry retirement housebuilder Blue Cedar Homes is expecting a record year following a successful 2016 which saw the company begin work on its 20th scheme.

In 2016, the specialist over 55’s homebuilder completed sales on more than 40 homes. Now, with a selection of developments due to reach completion this year, the company is expecting a record 2017 with a predicted turnover exceeding £20m.

The luxury homebuilder, which has offices in Bristol and Exeter, now has developments spanning from Cornwall to the Cotswolds and across to Oxfordshire, as well as Monmouthshire in South Wales. During the past 12 months, the company has secured 10 fresh planning permissions ensuring an excellent pipeline for new starts this year and next.

Chris Fayers, Director at Blue Cedar Homes said: “Location is extremely important to us as we look to build in towns and villages where people can really make the most of their retirement; where there are clubs and societies on offer and where homeowners can easily walk to the local shops or enjoy a stroll through the British countryside.

“Blue Cedar Homes’ offering is truly unique in the retirement market. We build properties that people really desire to live in, both now and in the future, which is why we offer the option of a ‘future-proof’ adjustment in our properties.”

The company has supported numerous community projects including donations to a breast cancer unit in Worcestershire, a community shop in Somerset and shortly sponsorship of a high-profile charity opera event.

Established in 2008 as part of the Eagle One group of companies, Blue Cedar Homes currently has a management team of 25 people across its two offices.

Mr Fayers continued: “The success of our projects is thanks to a hard-working team; from behind the scenes in our planning and land department to front-of-house in our customer services team. Thanks to the commitment of our staff and partners, we are looking forward to a very busy and very exciting 2017.”

Blue Cedar Homes’ developments cater for a generation of over 55s who want to enjoy an active retirement. Schemes typically comprise a selection of around ten properties, all of which are built around landscaped gardens, featuring a central summerhouse.
