Why Buy New

The benefits of buying a new home

Whatever your stage in life, buying a newly built or conversion home with City & Country will always prove to be a popular choice and a sound investment.



So many reasons to buy with City & Country

Simply move in, unpack and start enjoying life in your new home…

Designed for modern living

City & Country’s homes are intelligently designed to suit the needs of our lives today. With more people working from home and the increased desire for flexible and adaptable spaces, our homes can accommodate the demands of everyday life. Rooms that can be used as offices and spaces to relax in, or open plan areas where all the family can gather or entertain are key, not to mention additional bathrooms so that everyone is catered for.

Your blank canvas

A new City & Country home is a blank canvas, an opportunity to personalise your space and add your own style. You do not have to live with other people’s decorating preferences, and instead, can enjoy a carefully chosen neutral palette. And depending on the build stage, you may have the opportunity to tailor your fixtures and fittings and make design choices to suit you.

Leave maintenance cares behind you

A City & Country home provides buyers with a peace of mind that is unparalleled. Everything is new so you won’t need to worry about a long list of maintenance jobs that often accompanies the purchase of a second-hand home, costly renovations such as having to replace the kitchen or the bathroom, or any nasty surprises emerging. And with a high specification and brand-new appliances, fixtures and fittings, you won’t have the expense of buying new items either.

A smooth buying journey

Buying is often quicker and more straightforward with a new home as there are no existing owners involved. This shorter chain can help to make the process easier, plus you agree the price at point of reservation, so there are no concerns about sudden changes. If you are a first-time buyer, it is even easier as you can move chain-free with a new home.

Energy efficiency and sustainability

City & Country homes are built to current environmental standards and in line with the latest building regulations, making them more energy efficient and cheaper to run. Where possible, our homes offer water conservation measures, low-energy lighting, better insulation, heat retaining materials, high specification doors and windows, energy efficient appliances and efficient boilers. For conversion properties, we balance the need to preserve historic features with improving energy efficiency as much as possible. Provision for electric vehicle charging, underfloor heating and smart home technologies also feature in many of our properties.

Helping you buy

You will have your own dedicated sales and customer services team to support you. Initiatives such as Deposit Unlock are available for buyers to explore, which can help you buy with just a 5% deposit. If you have a property to sell, you may be able to use Assisted Move or make an Early Bird reservation to make the sales process easier and less stressful.

Enjoy a new home and a new standard of living

Buying a City & Country home is a smart move.

Built to exemplary standards, impeccably finished, energy efficient and tailored to your style, it will give you a quality of living that is hard to beat.



A City & Country home has so much to offer. We work with specialist architects and designers to create exceptional homes that are full of character. When you buy a property with City & Country, not only will you enjoy a brand-new home but also a new standard of living.

Quality, specification and design

Quality is at the centre of everything that City & Country does. By combining experience with a fresh, creative approach and a strong emphasis on design and traditional craftsmanship, we deliver successful, award-winning developments. Our homes consistently exceed expectation in terms of innovative, sympathetic design and high quality.

The natural environment

City & Country works to integrate beautiful landscapes, rich in biodiversity, within all its developments. We invest heavily in protecting and enhancing the natural landscaping and local ecology at every site, and pride ourselves on our commitment to distinctive designs that complement the setting of our properties. We work closely with advisory bodies, ensuring that the best approach is taken to conserve and repair important natural environments.


The natural environment has an enormously positive effect on people’s lives. City & Country is as committed to preserving, restoring and enhancing natural environments as the buildings themselves. Our work perfectly encompasses sustainability, by restoring and converting redundant buildings, reusing and recycling all original materials where possible, and providing them with an exciting and viable future.

Peace of mind

Safety first

Our homes comply with the latest Health and Safety standards, including mains powered smoke alarms.


For extra peace of mind, our homes come with a two-year City & Country defects liability warranty, and a 10-year structural warranty.

Consumer Code for Home Builders

The purpose of the code is to ensure that home buyers are treated fairly, know what service levels to expect, are given reliable information upon which to make their decision and know how to access speedy, low-cost dispute resolution arrangements if they are dissatisfied.
