When it comes to owning your very own luxury home, potential buyers are faced with the choice of either purchasing a pre-existing home or opting to build their own from scratch. While buying an existing home is certainly the simpler option, it is reliant on the market having a home that fits your needs and in the desired location – at exactly the right time. While it may require more time and effort, the freedom of building your very own dream home from scratch instead allows you to tailor it exactly to your wants and needs – down to every last detail.
Of course, building your very own home can be difficult if you don’t know where to start, which can then prove only more difficult if you don’t have a developer to help you along the way to turn your vision into reality.
To help you get started, here is our guide to building your very own luxury home.
When planning to build your bespoke home, it can be tempting to rush in and start designing rooms and choosing features you want your home to have. While no doubt important, before doing anything you should settle on a location in which to build your home. If you’re looking to build within the UK, there are plenty of exciting locations to choose from. From beautiful countryside spots such as Surrey to the exciting and bustling city life of London, there’s something to suit everyone’s needs. Plus, if you need some inspiration, be sure to take a look at some of the many bespoke homes we have created for our clients over the years.
Choosing a location is not just as simple as choosing a place you like, though. You’ll want to ensure your desired location has land suitable for purchase on which to build your home on, as well as that you are legally allowed to build on the land itself for residential purposes. The local council in the area is typically the body that grants planning permissions to projects but if you work with a luxury home developer they can help work with you to ensure this is all in place for you.
If you’ve opted to build your very own dream home, you likely already have a sizable budget to play with to help turn that dream into reality. However, even when dealing with high-end property, it’s vital you still set yourself a budget for the entire project. Wants and needs can change after all, so you don’t want to be in a position where your dream home ends up costing far more than you initially envisioned.
To help avoid this, it can help by settling on absolute must-haves for your home before construction begins. Is your home not complete without its very own home cinema? Add it to your must-have list. Unsure about that swimming pool though? Then keep it as a potential upgrade should your budget allow for it.
Understanding how much your must-haves will likely cost can also help you plan accordingly, which is why working with a luxury property developer can help as a way to get accurate estimates to help factor into your overall budget.
The key to any successful luxury home is its attention to detail, which becomes even more important when you’re building your own.
The flow of space, the opulent finishes to specific rooms, the thought that goes into every shard of light or view from each room are all aspects that can be easily overlooked when building your dream home. Focusing on these areas alongside your must-haves is what separates a truly one of a kind home from a standard one. Even with your own wine cellar, home gym, tennis court, and more, a truly luxurious home can only be built with the knowledge of how to tie all of them together into one truly remarkable dream home.
With this in mind then, it’s important you choose the right high-end property developer to help you on your journey to building your bespoke dream home. A good starting point to help you with your decision is to look at existing properties designed by renowned developers to get a good idea of what is possible. This is also a great way of drawing inspiration for your own dream home too.
Another way to help decide is to look at property developers who have received recognition for their luxury home builds in the past, as this is a surefire way to know you’ll be working with developers regarded as experts in their field beyond just excellent customer satisfaction.
Finally, don’t be afraid to take your time before making a decision. Building your own home is a huge commitment, so you want to ensure you are working with a luxury property developer who fully understands your vision and can help build your dream home exactly how you want it.
Once you do settle on your chosen property developer, it’s time to then finalise the plan so construction can begin. At this point, it’s a good idea to get an expected completion date on your bespoke home so you know exactly when it will be possible to move into it. Not only will this date help you settle on a potential move-in date, but it will also help you when it comes to moving out of your previous home.
Once construction is complete, you can rest easy knowing you’re the proud owner of a brand new bespoke luxury home to enjoy for years to come.
