With an unrivalled reputation across London and the Home Counties for building homes of the highest quality, Octagon have pioneered the concept of luxury housebuilding – offering the ultimate design and build services to each and every client.
Octagon Bespoke Director, John Pope explains; “The day to day of Octagon Bespoke is really varied, we could be designing a beautiful eight bedroom family home in Weybridge, renovating a Victorian townhouse in Mayfair, or extending a penthouse apartment on the banks of the Thames. Every client and every home is different, hence why we call it Bespoke.
Offering clients support from the very first steps of finding a plot of land and obtaining local planning permissions – sometimes demolishing their current home and replacing with a brand new property – through to design and specification, the Bespoke division offers a turn-key service working closely with the client to achieve their dream home.
John continues; the skilled team are also able to facilitate a major extension – with some recent commissions from repeat clients, now looking at a complete remodel or extension of their Octagon home.
One example has recently been undertaken on the Wentworth Estate, Virginia Water, with the client wanting to extend their already sizable 9,000 sq ft home by a third – creating more space for entertaining guests, including a bar, cinema room and two formal drawing rooms.
John explains; “A Bespoke home should always be a ‘dream home’ – it is a highly personal process, and we work very closely with clients from day one, so it’s a real pleasure when clients return to us for a remodel, renovation or extension, or recommend us to their friends and family.
“We once had a Bespoke client return to build an Octagon home for his parents, just around the corner from his own! He came equipped with a suitcase full of samples, cuttings and ideas based on his parents hobbies and tastes, and it resulted in one of the most artistically fascinating finished projects we’ve ever worked on.”
