All About Country & Metropolitan
Where quality is wall to wall, appearance is everything and all this comes as standard
People have been talking about Country & Metropolitan since we first appeared on the home building scene. Over time, we've earned an enviable reputation for building beautifully designed homes. Our commitment to design is reflected in our latest homes that have an even higher quality specification than ever before - all incorporated as standard. This makes our new homes among the very best in their class.
We took the time to listen and to understand what homebuyers want in their new home, and their feedback encouraged us to tear up the rule books and base our inspiration around the way people aspire to live today.
At Country & Metropolitan, we believe that there is no such thing as a “standard” customer so we encourage individuality wherever we can by offering a wide range of options for buyers to customise their homes to their own taste.
Firstly, this means offering a variety of high quality properties and a broad range of prices to extend choice and put it within reach. Whether you’re looking for your first step onto the property ladder or a new family home, you’re sure to find your perfect new home.
Our latest collection of new homes is leading the way in house building. They have a real 'WOW' factor as soon as you step inside. Walls have been removed, windows are bigger, and light floods through wide open spaces giving each room a feelgood feeling.
We understand how you want your living space to reflect your lifestyle, your interests and your sense of style. From our wide range of kitchen choices, quality full height tiling and integrated appliances, it’s fair to say you’ll be spoilt for choice.
To make sure you can buy smoothly and effortlessly, we will work alongside you to help you find the deal and the mortgage you need to turn your dream into a reality. Then we will ensure our sales advisor is on hand to make the journey into your new home an exciting and positive experience.
Country & Metropolitan has also been awarded double 5 star status by the Home Builders Federation. This award is based on the quality of our homes and whether our customers would recommend us to a friend. This banner is now proudly displayed and aims to reassure customers that we are building some of the most sought-after homes currently available in the UK, and that everyone benefits from a programme of customer care that is second to none.
