Pye Homes Acquired by Blenheim Estate
Pye Homes is very proud to announce it has been acquired by long-standing landowner partner Blenheim Estate.
A central part of the Woodstock community for more than 300 years, Blenheim Estate is a long standing parter of Pye's and a respected land owner within the county of Oxfordshire and beyond. Like Pye, they have long running traditions of forming communities in Oxfordshire,
Blenheim Estate is currently working with Pye on building 169 homes at Hanborough Gate, and together we have just started work on 300 homes at Park View, east of Woodstock.
“Pye Homes has been an integral part of the local community for more than 90 years, they share many of our values and have an unparalleled understanding of this area,” said Roger File, Chief Operating Officer and Property Director for Blenheim Estate.
“Our ambition is to build outstanding communities of which we are proud and in which local people truly want to live, grow and prosper. We will own many of the properties for the foreseeable future and will be looking after these communities for hundreds of years to come.
“When you build tomorrow’s heritage today, you need the very closest of working partnerships between landowner and builder – and there is no closer and more trusting partnership than that between Blenheim and Pye.
“It will also provide a secure long-term future for Pye Homes,” he added.
“We are delighted to be joining forces with Blenheim Estate,” said Graham Flint, Managing Director of Pye Homes.
“They have a clear and exciting vision to create developments which benefit and add value to the surrounding communities. Their long-term commitment and deeply rooted links to this area make them an ideal partner,” he added.
Blenheim Estate Homes' new development at Park View, east of Woodstock will be the first to incorporate the principle of Landowner Legacy which recognises local landowners have a social, economic and moral responsibility to deliver developments that its local community can be proud of.
“As an organisation we are in the unique position of having both the experience and the expertise to develop and build high quality homes and communities with access to the land to build them on,” said Roger.
“Unlike many commercial property developers, we are inextricably linked to the communities we are working with and we have an overriding sense of responsibility for the socio-economic and aesthetic wellbeing of the area,” he added.
