From the South of France to South West England

What started as a meeting in the South of France between our founders Mark Edworthy and Paul Scantlebury, has led to us becoming one of the most prestigious property developers in the South West of England.

Bringing Mayfair to Exeter

Using Mark and Paul’s 45+ years’ experience in property, planning, finance and construction, our first undertaking was the rather ambitious transformation of a former Grade II listed hospital. Inspired to ‘bring Mayfair to Exeter’, the site was split into a restaurant, 30 high-end student lofts, a business hub, and 23 luxurious apartments.

Love what you do and do it well

Today, one of the elegant Georgian buildings on the Exeter site is home to our head office. A far cry from our first ‘office’ – Mark’s car. Part of this growing success is our approach to business and life. We believe it’s important to do what you love and do it well, while having fun along the way with the people you work with.

A belief in quality not quantity

Volume house building has never been for us. Instead, we’ve focussed on creating unique, special developments that will form part of our lasting legacy of setting new standards in design and build.  

A modern property portfolio rich in history

We’re extremely proud of what our amazing team has achieved over the years. From building upmarket student lofts and luxury homes, to the sensitive restoration of historic buildings, our portfolio is one to be admired.

Continuing to build inspirational living and working environments

Despite what we’ve already created, we’ll never rest on our laurels. We will keep pushing ourselves even further to build high-specification, beautiful properties that bring years of happiness to those that live and work in them.
