Housebuilder Spitfire pledges to build more than 1,000 homes in the Midlands

Spitfire, the homebuilding division of IM Properties, has unveiled plans to build 1,000 homes across the Midlands in the next five years.

Planned developments span locations including Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, while the gross development value of the brand’s pipeline tops £350m.

The division has a land spend commitment of more than £60m.

Ben Leather (pictured), managing director at Spitfire, said: “Spitfire has built a name for itself over the last decade for creating design-led, unique, premium and high-specification properties in some of the UK’s most sought-after locations under the Spitfire Bespoke Homes marque.

“With growing demand for our homes, and everchanging market requirements, we want to bring Spitfire’s clear design-led approach to a wider marketplace.

“Spitfire Homes will bring the best of both worlds, opening up our new product range to a much larger audience, while continuing to develop our signature properties as part of our Bespoke Collection.

“Both will be evidently Spitfire, carrying our trademark ethos and the principles that we are recognised for. This is an incredibly exciting time for our business, and I am excited for what the future holds for Spitfire Homes.”

The firm will continue to offer premium residences as part of its ‘Bespoke Collection’.

Among them are the recently acquired Beaufort, in leafy Edgbaston, Birmingham and Mirabelle, in Eckington, Worcestershire – both with homes available for purchase in the coming months.
