Alcuin Homes


Supporting British businesses

Paragon’s quick and easy support enabled Alcuin Homes to build the four properties set amidst the rural beauty of Flawith – a highly sought-after area, just a 20-minute journey from York.

Property Developer Richard Marchant has used his extensive experience in the housing industry to move into building developments for Alcuin Homes.

He spent 15 years at Persimmon Homes as a Quantity Surveyor and Technical Director in Leeds before embarking on a new career as a Property Developer. He focuses on building new, high quality, bespoke homes that allow the buyer to tailor the interior to their individual style and needs; whether that’s knocking down walls to make a living room larger or designing the shape of a kitchen.

Richard said:

“Each development I do is different. I never build the same house twice on another site as the emphasis is about being bespoke for the customer. I liked working with Paragon because it was competitive and I could always get someone on the phone straight away to talk through whatever needed sorting out; and that isn’t the case with a lot of banks and lenders"

I have a good relationship with the team at Paragon and couldn’t fault them

"After the success of this development in Flawith, I’ve returned to Paragon again for my next housing project. There’s a good market for housing in York so I’m always looking for new plots of land, whether they are recommended through an Agent or Architect or I see a good plot and knock on a door to see if it’s available.”
