Honouring traditions in taste while celebrating contemporary innovation
Birch Copse House
Sherbourne Developments brings, to a very traditional market, a fresh perspective on what our clients demand from a home in the 21st century.
Tweeds alone won’t convince contemporary taste; we favour a sharper, more engaging take on design and service utilising the best traditional materials and up-to-date technologies. We build homes that both celebrate our architectural heritage and the avant-garde while focusing on innovation in construction, comfort and luxury.
Many of our developments reflect the very best in our historic country houses. Palladian or Georgian architecture has a timeless elegance that is emblematic of English taste. However, today, discerning clients do not aspire to draughty corridors or smoky hearths. Efficient and environmentally sustainable technologies allow us to honour the form while improving the function.
Sherbourne Developments accompanies you at every step towards your new home; through every room, utility and fitting until each detail is as perfect and welcoming as it must be.
Whether remodelling an existing country house, creating a contemporary statement informed by Vitruvian and Palladian geometry or interpreting a client’s vision of a landscape and a home that will mature over many generations, the realisation through design iterations and architectural elements drawn from classical and state-of-the-art technologies is fundamental to the relationship we have with those for whom the line first drawn on the page begins a journey to a living, breathing home.
Every step in that journey from the two to the three-dimensional and beyond depends entirely upon assiduous and relentless planning. Uncompromising management of a project from the design stage allows the many craftsmen and professionals involved in such a venture to work unimpeded and with a clear understanding of their part in the finished whole. Every person involved has a stake in the client’s vision and expectations and a fierce pride in every facet of the building process.
Sherbourne Developments builds homes, extraordinary homes where the legacy lives in the structure and the landscape in which it lies; in its maturing, the way it reflects each season and the passing of time. Above all, when we hand over the keys we also deliver the preface to a story of the family that will write its succeeding chapters.
Sherbourne Developments take great pride ensuring that every detail is correct and client satisfaction is paramount when handing over every new home.
The timeline is indicative and may be subject to variation depending on complexity of project.
“Bruce, Shaun and their teams of people could not be easier, more pleasant and helpful to work with, throughout the build process and then subsequently after we moved into our home”
“Sherbourne Developments is no ordinary house builder. I purchased Fox Hall from Sherbourne Developments in 2014 whilst the property was still being built. The process of purchasing a property during its build and being able to specify internal materials, finishes, fixtures and fittings would be daunting to many people.
My experience of Sherbourne Developments was that the construction was good and the design and layout of the property had been very well thought out to ensure the house was very functional and practical for day to day living.”
“We spent two years looking at period properties until we came across one of the Sherbourne Development’s projects, which we instantly fell in love with.”
“They were extremely adaptable to changes in the internal specifications and provided a very skilled professional team to work with me on every detail. When obstacles did present the team worked well together to resolve these. I was extremely pleased with the overall quality of the construction and the very high quality finishes throughout.”
“The team at Sherbourne Developments take great care and focus greatly on every intricate detail throughout the build process, often redoing work if they’re not 100% satisfied.”
“With no hesitation we would happily recommend Sherbourne Developments to any prospective buyer.”
