Summerfield Homes hands over its 2,000th home

South West based Housebuilder Summerfield Homes has reached a significant landmark with the handover of its 2,000th home since inception.

The business began new home construction in 1987 and over the last 37 years has evolved into an established housebuilder, gaining the reputation for building quality new homes in excellent locations across the South West.

When stepping into the housebuilding industry Summerfield Homes delivered smaller projects of three to five units while actively building strong relationships with local subcontractors and suppliers.

In 2024 the business was actively working on multiple schemes across the South West including 320 units at Killams Park in Taunton, 250 units at Liddymore Park, Watchet and 20 units at Carrots Farm, North Petherton.

The housebuilder is also preparing for two new schemes starting imminently in the popular Somerset villages of Ashill and Horton, and has projects in various planning stages for Axminster, Kenton Mandeville, Exeter, Chard, Middlezoy, Bishops Lydeard and Plymouth.

Celebrating the milestone of the 2,000th home is a proud moment for the team and has provided the opportunity to reflect on what the business has achieved since 1987.

Ed Khodabandehloo, Managing Director at Summerfield Homes, said: “A huge thank you must go to our management team and staff past and present, suppliers, subcontractors and consultants as we achieve this impressive milestone.

“On the way to handing over our 2,000th home we have managed to secure several accolades for our build quality including multiple NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

“We have plans for continued sustainable growth as a business but still very much with a focus on delivering a high standard of home to all our customers. Our reputation across the South West as a long-standing conscientious housebuilder with good relationships with our customers and supply chain is very important to us.”

The 2000th home is located at Carrots Farm, North Petherton and has been handed over to the new homeowners Paul Rochford and Lesley Norbury. Accepting the keys to their new home they said: “We spent several days looking at various new build properties around the Bridgwater area and Taunton.

“Our conclusion from viewing many properties is that the build quality of the Summerfield houses is exceptional. The layout of the house fits our needs perfectly, and the energy-efficient solar panels coupled with the EV charging point are a great plus.

“The location is perfect for Paul’s work in Bridgwater and North Petherton is an ideal community for us; it’s not too big and not too small.

“Overall, our experience with Summerfield Homes has been very good. They gave us time to overcome a stressful delay in our house-purchase chain. They have also given us an unprecedented level of one-to-one service in the house-buying process.”
