Building a Bespoke Home


The word ‘bespoke’ brings to mind something truly unique, customised, personalised and tailored, something Octagon pride themselves on with each new commission, creating one-off homes for individual clients.


Building or converting a home is a big commitment – from planning applications and designs to ground work and infrastructure, co-ordinating teams that bring together the skills required can easily turn what was supposed to be a dream home into a headache house.


Having specialised in prime residential property for more than three decades, Octagon have an experienced team of architects, interior designers and project managers in place, who interpret a client’s ideas, making the entire process from planning to completion an unforgettable and enjoyable experience.


Whether big ideas include a modernist mansion on the outskirts of London, a classic country cottage in the Home Counties or an inner city apartment conversion, Octagon Bespoke are well equipped with an award winning team to manage every step of the process.


Well established relationships with some of the finest craftsmen and installation specialists in the UK also make large scale renovations and extensions a speciality, with the developers counting stone masons and award winning bricklayers to cabinet makers and audio technicians amongst their key contacts.



No two of the custom homes are the same, with the specification completely down to the client; from indoor fitness suites, hydro pools and spas to the ultimate entertaining suites, wine cellars and made-to-order dog houses, the possibilities are endless.


Octagon’s bespoke service doesn’t end once the keys are handed over; a specialist after sales team are in place to make the process of moving in as easy as possible. Armed with a black book of trusted suppliers and local service providers, from dog walkers and cleaners to nurseries and interior designers, the team are known for their exceptional connections and local area knowledge.


Also offering a personal walk-through service within the home, showing new owners how their high-tech home technology and appliances function, the team will be on hand to provide advice and assistance until the client is well and truly settled within their Octagon home.


A new bespoke opportunity in Hertfordshire has recently been secured by Octagon, on one of Radlett’s most prestigious roads, Newlands Avenue. The large one acre plot already has planning permission secured for a 15,500 sq ft home, with the proposed design featuring 7 bedrooms and 6 reception rooms across four floors, with a pool hall and games room to the lower ground.


With projects from £1m undertaken, flexibility is a key asset for the Octagon Bespoke team, who have trebled their custom commissions in the past 12 months.
