Autograph Homes is a new breed of homebuilder. We build homes that are different by design. Homes built with imagination and intelligence, as individual as those who live in them. Every one of our developments is uniquely tailored to its environment, and each property is highly specified and thoughtfully designed. We integrate exciting architectural features with the latest smart and sustainable technologies to create homes that are fit for the future as well as being more economical to own.
Today, a lack of affordable yet desirable new properties is forcing homebuyers to compromise, with only look-a-like houses on characterless estates within their reach. As an independently owned, boutique developer, we focus on detail and quality. Yet we include as standard what larger homebuilders offer only at a premium, making our properties both more inspiring and outstanding value for money. We combine craftsmanship and innovation to build exciting urban communities and distinctive family homes across the South West.
New homes never looked better. All of our properties are designed to echo their location and environment, with unexpected and striking architectural features inside and out.
Our homes are created for contemporary living, with intelligent floor plans, economical energy solutions and an exceptional choice of materials, fixtures and finishes.
Our homes are built to the highest technical standards by a team of experienced craft and construction experts, backed by the peace of mind of a 10-Year NHBC Buildmark or Premier Guarantee warranty.
Because we’re independent, we can focus on the details. Our homes include as standard the kind of high quality specifications that normally carry a premium price; meaning you get more for your money.

We’re proud to be associated with some of the leading bodies in the UK’s home building industry.
NHBC is the UK’s leading independent standard setting body and provider of construction warranty and insurance for new homes. The NHBC Buildmark gives you piece of mind that your new Autograph Home is built to the highest possible standards and is covered by the UK’s preeminent new homes warranty, currently protecting over 1.6 million properties nationwide.
Premier Guarantee provides flexible warranties and building control for property builders and developers, like us. In most cases, mortgage lenders will only lend if a new property is covered for the first 10 years by a recognised structural warranty. As one of the UK's leading warranty providers, Premier Guarantee is recognised by the majority of mortgage lenders.
Help to Buy is a government initiative for homebuyers who need help with their deposit. The government lends up to 20% of the cost your new home, so you can get a 75% mortgage with as little as a 5% deposit up front, plus you don’t pay any fees for the first five years of the loan. Help to Buy equity loan assistance could make your new Autograph Home even more affordable.
