Discerning developers of luxury new homes in Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

Crafting Premium Homes

At Amherst Homes, we craft premium, high quality homes for everyone; from young professionals ready to make their first property purchase to those ready to settle into their forever home. Our developments are in Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire and are designed and built by local people, for local people, using locally sourced materials.
We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and quality, and all of our new builds come with a ten-year warranty, so you can be sure that you’re buying a home to last.

About Amherst Homes

Our homes are built to suit local people and communities. Our hands-on approach is still applied when we are involved in projects further afield, ensuring that we understand the localities and communities in which we are building, so that we remain mindful of styles, character and opinions outside our usual build area.

Our Developments

We have completed a number of successful developments and have more currently on sale. For information regarding our homes and what sets them apart, please visit our Developments page.

Land Wanted

Amherst Homes are always looking to build new homes in the Essex, Hertfordshire, and Cambridgeshire area. We are interested in high-quality residential development opportunities in sought after locations either with or without planning permission and will consider all types of land, such as brownfield, greenbelt, contaminated or back land developments.
