As a charming market town brimming with character, it’s no wonder that Bury St Edmunds is one of the East of England’s most desirable places to live. The family-run building developer Hartog Hutton has built 30 homes within the town itself, along with over one hundred in its surrounding villages, catering to a growing residential interest in the Bury St Edmunds area. The firm designs homes to be lived in – meaning that each and every house it develops is its own unique masterpiece. Homes are individually designed to suit clients’ requirements and tastes, whether that includes lofty, high ceilings or thermostat-controlled under-floor heating.

Hartog Hutton uses modern construction techniques to create energy-efficient homes, while also incorporating traditional finishes to give its buildings an abundance of character. What’s more, unlike many house builders, the team includes all finishes – down to details such as carpets – meaning that clients can move straight into their new homes upon completion. Hartog Hutton also works with landowners who are looking to develop their land, allowing them to create something from the ground up and truly bring their vision to life.

The Bury St Edmunds-based firm has over 30 years of experience in the industry, and is renowned across East Anglia for its exceptional craftmanship and outstanding project management. Thanks to this experience, Hartog Hutton has developed strong links with local authorities, planning consultants, architects, designers and engineers, and the company prides itself on delivering premium projects on time and on budget.

“For the last 20 years, we have really concentrated our efforts in Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding villages,” says Malcolm Payne, Director at Hartog Hutton. “We are now aiming to create around 20 homes a year, and we have some exciting new projects that we will soon be starting or have in the pipeline in Rattlesden, Lavenham, Norton, Barking and Orford. We have also been very successful in working with farmers and smaller landowners to gain planning permission on their land.”
