Spitfire has an established reputation within the market place as a bespoke, award winning housebuilder with a passion for creating select, unique developments tailored to their individual surrounding and location.
Developing sites in prime locations across central England and the South East, and with our strong core values of design, sustainability and quality of construction, Spitfire has forged a strong position within the residential property industry. The brand is founded on a bespoke approach to the development process and is synonymous with high quality, beautifully designed homes that are clearly distinctive in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
From city centre apartment schemes to rural greenfield sites, our approach to development and our attention to detail when designing each individual property has not gone unnoticed within the planning sector. With a number of developments complete, local planning authorities know that approving a Spitfire planning application will result in a high quality, individual development that complements the surrounding area. This has resulted in over 90% of our planning applications being approved at the local level.
Through our parent company, IM Properties, Spitfire benefits from access to significant and immediate funding that enable us to be decisive and very competitive in acquiring some of the country’s most desirable residential development sites on which to create inviting, functional and beautiful homes.
We have ambitious growth plans and whilst our current Land holdings stands at an approximate GDV in excess of £400M, our aim is to continue this aggressive growth to become one of the largest developers of bespoke high quality residential schemes in the Country.
“Spitfire’s ethos is very clear: to create beautiful homes in stunning locations and to keep its customers as the central focus as the business continues to flourish.”
