A well-respected independent Shropshire housebuilder, which prides itself on delivering quality over quantity, is celebrating the completion of its 2,500th home. 

Since being founded in 1981, Shropshire Homes, based near Shrewsbury, has gained a reputation for creating homes in keeping with their environment, as well as an impressive track-record of converting prestigious, historic, listed, iconic, and often sensitive buildings, into luxury properties.

Now, just a few years shy of its 40th anniversary, Shropshire Homes has handed over the keys for its 2,500th home to new owners Paul and Gemma Lincoln. The property is located at its Cricketers Meadow development in Pontesbury, near Shrewsbury.

Howard Thorne, Managing Director of Shropshire Homes, said: “This is an incredible milestone for Shropshire Homes as this is a company that gives equal priority to delivering quality homes and service as well as quantity. We started out building just one house in 1981 and didn’t expect to reach this milestone!

“Whether it’s working with English Heritage to transform a derelict, crumbling listed building into luxury apartments, or showcasing our design capabilities by creating attractive properties in villages and towns across the county, Shropshire Homes has always strived for excellence in everything we do.

“This milestone is also a testament to the very talented people who work here. It’s because of their efforts and their skill that I’m confident Shropshire Homes has a very bright future.”

Cricketers’ Meadow will feature 86 properties consisting of two, three and four-bedroom houses and bungalows. These properties will be complemented by a village green, a new Co-op store, purpose-built premises for The Ark Day Nursery and a community hub with space for a library.
