About Bloor Homes: 

We built our first house in 1969. Every possible detail was taken into consideration back then to create a beautiful home. The same is still true today.

We understand that buying a new home is an important decision and that everything, from the location to the build quality, has to stand the test of time for our customers.

As a family-run housebuilder, our team of highly skilled craftspeople ensure care and attention goes into every one of our homes.

We give sympathetic consideration to the areas we build in to design welcoming settings with variety of home types and space, making every effort to preserve natural features and the conservation of wildlife.

Our strong commitment to create homes that our customers are proud to own - and that we would love ourselves or family and friends to live in - is what has always driven us. It’s why we’re proud to be a five-star housebuilder and it’s why we’re dedicated to creating better life experiences. One home at a time.
