Buying With Cavanna

Cavanna Homes has been building beautiful new houses across the South West since the firm was established in 1923 by Philip (PD) Cavanna.

We are one of the largest independent house builders based in the South West – a proud developer with an unbeatable reputation for the highest standards of design and build quality, and for ensuring our customers’ expectations are not just met, but exceeded.

After 100 years of building brilliance, we remain a family-owned business that is committed to our founder’s principles of high-quality design and construction, and to our customers.

If you buy a Cavanna property, you’ll move into a home that’s unlike most new builds, one with individual character and style – a place you can truly make your own. You’ll also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a property built with years of expertise, backed up by an exemplary level of support and advice. In fact, our customer service is so important to us, we have documented it in our Customer Charter.

We believe there are many reasons to favour a new home over a second-hand one:

Buying a new home will also reduce any extra DIY work and renovation, so you can sit back and enjoy your home immediately. The costs associated with updating an older home to modern standards, are calculated by the Home Builder’s Federation to add up to more than £70,000.

A Cavanna home is designed to follow the latest building regulations so you can rest assured that your property’s structure, ventilation, sound insulation, and electrical and fire safety all meet the highest standards. Our homes also come with smoke alarms and modern locks, which mean lower insurance premiums and greater peace of mind.

The standard of home building in the UK is higher than ever– from exceptional levels of fitted features to improved energy efficiency. According to the Home Builders Federation (HBF), new build houses saved homeowners £2,600 on last year’s energy bills. Click here to read the report published in February 2023.

When you buy a new home, you move into a property that no one else has lived in before. It’s painted in neutral colours, so you can easily style and personalise your home. Subject to stage of construction, you can even choose your own kitchen, flooring, and electrical fittings. Find out more here.

Our new homes come with a 10 year NHBC or LABC warranty. This is an insurance backed warranty, providing new homeowners with peace of mind, which those buying second hand properties simply don’t have. Find out more here.

All Cavanna homes are kitted out with the latest heating systems, excellent wall and loft insulation and double-glazed windows. Selected homes are also installed with PV solar panels and electric vehicle charging points.

New homes are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and finishes, so you can pick the property that’s right for you – from 1-bedroom apartments to 5-bedroom detached houses, there really is something for everyone.

Cavanna Homes also provides initial customer support for 2 years after you have moved in. For any concerns you have, or advice you need our dedicated Customer Service team are happy to discuss any issues.
