About Countryside Properties plc

Countryside is a leading UK house builder specialising in place making and urban regeneration.

We believe place making is more than geography. It is both a practice and a philosophy. A place to us is as much about the feeling people experience in our homes, as it is the physical buildings. We recognise that choosing a place to live is just as much an emotional decision as a financial one.

  • We fulfil people’s need for a sense of belonging and being ‘at home’ with where they live
  • We provide a common vision for the future of the community
  • We bring a renewed sense of identity to the surrounding area
  • Our legacy comes from the positive experiences our places make possible
  • We deliver enduring value for all
