About Us

Beechwood Estates have been in property development for over 30 years and we are proud to be an independent, family business. We are experienced in working on new-build, residential, refurbishment, and commercial developments. We pride ourselves on our excellent returns on investment, in both the residential and commercial sectors, and have sold new homes to both private homeowners and investors. Many of our commercial projects, comprising offices, business units, and leisure venues have been retained and let to a variety of tenants, from SME’s to the NHS. We have a substantial property investment portfolio with funding available for new, sole or partnership projects.
