Home Farm is a small, luxury development in Kent. The development, built by regional housebuilder Clarus Homes in joint venture with Astindale Properties, is located in the village of Bidborough and comprises just nine homes. Each one is individually designed and, with prices ranging between £550k to £2.5m, the homes are built to a high specification throughout.
Chris Dickens is managing director of Clarus Homes and explains why he specified Geberit ceramics for Home Farm. “We pride ourselves on our luxury homes and, as a result, always look to work with premium brands that can offer us premium products,” he says. “When Geberit extended its range, we felt that not only would its products be the right fit for this development but also that Geberit would be the right partner to work with on the project.”
Chris was looking for a manufacturer that could offer complete end-to-end service and support throughout the project. “Quality was extremely important to us, but we also wanted to work with a supplier who could also offer first class service, support and on-time delivery,” he explains. “This support was a particularly important factor for us and started at the design stage when we sat down with the Geberit team who inspected the site with us. They then talked us through the different product ranges and what would be best suited for each home and very carefully considered, too, the target demographic for this development.”
Chris specified a selection of different products in each home. “No two homes are the same here,” he continues. “Each one is quite unique and so every home is individually designed and specified.”
Among the products specified was Geberit’s Acanto bathroom range, which includes options for the inside of the furniture to be flexible, with the arrangement of the drawers, compartments and shelves designed to create an uncluttered environment in the space. Chris also opted for Geberit’s Duofix frame alongside Sigma concealed cisterns.
“The products look great, they are stylish and the quality is second-to-none,” Chris concludes. “Working with Geberit has benefitted us as a company. Our customers, very rightly, have high expectations and its important that they know they will have a premium brand in their new home.”
