City & Country has a desire and genuine passion to viably conserve, restore and newly create Britain’s architectural heritage. Embracing the best of the present, through exceptional design and build standards, we sensitively add value to very special places; to be enjoyed today and cherished by future generations.
City & Country is a family owned business which was originally founded in 1962. The Group has always been construction focused, although over the last 50 years we have been successfully evolving and embracing change to become a market leading niche developer; specialising in working with the very best of Britain’s architectural heritage and sensitive landscapes.
Based in Stansted, Essex, City & Country has historically operated in East Anglia. As part of our strategy for growth and in order to capitalise on our core skills and new opportunities we have expanded our sphere of operation to include London, the South East, the South West and prime markets around key cities.
Our background means that we are very well placed to evaluate and deliver complex mixed use schemes but we are best known for our award winning reputation as an expert in the conservation, restoration and conversion of historic and listed buildings. This combined with the sympathetic and complementary design of new properties around these nationally important heritage assets or in other sensitive places has put us at the forefront of specialist property development.
While the economic crisis may have created havoc within the development industry over recent years, City & Country has viewed these difficulties as a genuine opportunity. Conservative and careful planning coupled with the decision to turn assets into cash immediately prior to the credit crunch has ensured the company’s financial wellbeing. This and the continued support from our funders over forty years has enabled us to make shrewd acquisitions. As a result, we are now poised to take the next well considered step towards achieving our ambition of tripling the value of the company over the next four to five years.
Quality is at the centre of everything that City & Country does, which is how we remain leaders in our field. By combining experience with a fresh, creative approach and a strong emphasis on design and traditional craftsmanship we are able to deliver successful and aspirational developments. With fifty years in business, our most powerful motivation continues to be the constant pursuit of excellence and continuous improvement in every part of our business.
