Berberis, Newton Ferrers, Devon

A prestigious private residence conceived and developed by the client over several years, with a build period of circa 18 months.  Due to the very steep topography of the site the project was extremely challenging in terms of the civil engineering works required to raise the property out of the ground.

The property boasts many facilities such as an indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and oak conservatory.  Many of the components used were very high quality and specialist, such as the windows and folding screen to the pool.

There was extensive liaison with the client and their interior designer in respect of the finishes and fit out.

The outcome was a beautifully finished build which the owner was absolutely delighted with.  He is still singing Ryearch’s praises some six years after the build: “I have always felt so pleased that we completed Berberis with Ryearch. It is a testament to your business ethic that you remain responsive and helpful so many years after the project.”

Our client also left the following testimonial on Ryearch’s google maps page:

“Ryearch are an incredible building firm, they are immensely professional, and do an excellent job, on on time and on budget. Unlike most builders, they work with you as opposed to trying to get as much out of you as they can. Even now, seven years after our build, they respond to my emails and do their best to address any problems, five years after the expiry of all warranties. That gives you an idea what an outstanding firm they are. From a very happy customer.”
