About Developer

A Tradition of Excellence

From cottage to country house, every Hopkins home has a personality you'll love, from the impression created by a traditional look and feel to the everyday practicality of modern living.

Hopkins has a skill not only in building houses which harmonise with their neighbours and surroundings, but also in creating new homes of character and individuality. But don't take our word for it; our skills have been recognised locally and nationally by the many awards the company has achieved.

There's something about the look of older buildings that appeals to all of us. The design, the scale, the feel - it's something many architects have forgotten. But not at Hopkins. Our approach is to take all the qualities which have stood the test of time to build homes that are easy on the eye and that blend with their surroundings.

We use the traditional approach as our platform and onto this build all the convenience, practicality and low maintenance demanded by today's modern lifestyle. The result is a home that we and many of our purchasers believe is a joy to own and to live in.

The foundation of Hopkins Homes is based on Managing Director James Hopkins' commitment to excellent design and quality which reflects the tradition and character of each individual site.

The company comprises an enthusiastic team of professionals whose skills encompass planning, design, construction and, importantly, after sales - a rapid-response team is available to take care of any teething problems, however minor.

For more than a decade Hopkins Homes, together with Hopkins & Moore, has grown from a small local company into a significant builder of quality homes. You can be sure that a home by Hopkins Homes is designed and built to last.

Bringing new life to Brown Sites

With long experience of transforming recyclable or 'brownfield' sites, Hopkins has won acclaim for some of its major inner city regeneration projects. The company has approached the challenge of breathing new life into these sites with vigour and imagination.

Indeed, the company has earned recognition for its creative and original thinking, winning several design awards including those presented by Broadland District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, as well as national acclaim with four annual What House? awards.

In all cases the company faced strong competition from some of the biggest names in the UK housebuilding industry. Drovers Mead, Bury St Edmunds has also been cited by the ARIBA & Zurich Building Guarantees as one of eight in the country 'to promote good design in housing'.

Traditional Crafts and the Environment

Hopkins Homes never compromises on quality, seeking out craftsmen with traditional skills and appropriate materials to enhance its schemes. Handmade willow fencemaking and pargetting are just two of the many traditional skills the company has employed.

At the same time a Hopkins home incorporates energy-saving features beyond the statutory requirements, reducing heat loss and the emission of greenhouse gases. Every property comes with its own independent energy audit.

Consideration for the environment plays a large part in the company's design concepts. Developments are attractive and desirable to live in. Trees and natural hedges are retained as boundaries; experts are consulted to assist where appropriate while additional planting is introduced to mature in keeping with existing surroundings.

The Hopkins Homes approach is straightforward: to do what's right to the highest possible standards, the results of which are borne out in these photographs. Hopkins Homes' rapid sales rates, often at premium prices, bears testament to their wide appeal to people from all age groups and backgrounds.
