About Marden Homes

Marden Homes, established in 1989, designs and builds high-quality, stylish new homes across the South East and London

We create exciting new neighbourhoods in sought-after places, from modern, town-centre apartments to detached family houses in countryside locations. Each of our developments is bespoke to its location and inspired by its setting.

For customers looking for a home that is truly personal, we also specialise in sourcing land and building individual homes that meet our clients’ own specifications.

Every home we build comprises exceptional quality, beautifully crafted detail, and a superior specification. Our customer relations team provides a comprehensive, personalised service during the search for your home, throughout the purchase and build process, and beyond.

To find out more about the homes currently available across our developments or to discuss how we can help you with your bespoke home-building plans, contact us.
