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 55 years it has been successfully evolving and embracing change to become the market leading niche developer; specialising in working with the very best of Britain’s architectural heritage and sensitive landscapes.

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 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.

Based in Stansted Mountfitchet in Essex, City & Country has historically operated in East Anglia. In recent years, we have expanded our sphere of operation to include London, the South East, the South West and as far afield as Edinburgh.

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 over 55 years in business, our most powerful motivation continues to be the constant pursuit of excellence and continuous improvement in every part of our business.
