Since building our first home in 1992, we have grown organically to become one of the South’s leading, award-winning new homes’ developers.
We have worked hard for our successes but we are equally proud of the fact that the company still has a real family feel. The ethos of a ‘Small enough to care, large enough to compete with the best’ is at the heart of the Crayfern Difference.
It means what we do is not just business, it’s personal. We care and it’s reflected in each new home we design, plan and construct as well as the way we look after every customer.
Peace of mind designed and built-in
The Crayfern Difference is in our meticulous approach, it’s in our attention to detail, and it’s in our innovative use of land, materials and building methodologies.
Today, whether we are designing a couple of stand-alone, bespoke executive homes or developing a low-density urban scheme, the Crayfern Difference remains constant – excellence as standard, which is why we have earned and have held the accolade of an A1 NHBC rating for some years.
In July 2019 award-winning developer, Vanderbilt Homes, acquired Crayfern Homes. Founded in 2004 in the Oxfordshire market town of Woodstock, Vanderbilt Homes has grown considerably since then, building high-quality homes across the South-East.
“At Crayfern Homes we have refined our business over nearly 30 years, establishing a strong reputation in the industry for our professionalism, reliability and specification, building some of the best homes in the South,” comments Kevin Wawman, Crayfern Homes MD. Our acquisition by Vanderbilt will allow us to join with another likeminded housebuilder that shares our values and ambition to grow the business still further.
“We are delighted to welcome Crayfern Homes into the Vanderbilt Homes Group,” comments Chris Chiles, Vanderbilt Homes’ Group MD. “Our vision is to generate sustainable growth through market leading operations and premium quality homes and to that end Crayfern Homes represents an excellent fit. Crayfern Homes is a robust business which has demonstrated impressive long-term performance. We look forward to harnessing our group expertise to further enhance our product, service and performance across a broader geography.”
