What sets us apart?

At Amherst Homes we build homes to suit local people and communities, because Amherst Homes is staffed and run by local people from those very same communities. Our local-centric approach ensures that – even when operating beyond our natural Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire boundaries – we always remain mindful of local styles, character and opinion.

Amherst Homes is small enough to be flexible, yet big enough never to have to compromise on quality. With a vastly experienced team, developed over many years and countless projects, our ‘strength in depth’ gives us a huge advantage. From our land and planning expertise to our bespoke designs (no templates for us), our standard of materials and finish, to our many accreditations and ten-year warranty, we’re proud of our reputation and of the homes that we build.

Amherst Homes – crafting premium homes.

  • Local homes built by local people

What our customers say

Having lived here for a year we are extremely pleased with our new home, particularly impressed with the fact that in this time we have not had one defect.

Mr and Mrs P, Saffron Walden

Having spent 35 years of my working career in the building maintenance arena I know how complex the construction process can be. I felt it appropriate to congratulate you and your team for the excellent house you have produced and the high quality of the finished product.

Mr G, Saffron Walden

My wife and I bought an Amherst property in January 2018, we can honestly say it’s the best decision of our lives.

Mr and Mrs C, Widford
