Chaldean Developments

Based in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, Chaldean Properties is a privately held property development company that specialises in residential, retail and commercial developments throughout East Anglia and the South of England.

Through applying our specialist ‘in-house’ knowledge and expertise we are able to identify and secure our own off-market development opportunities.

Having originally focused on the food retail sector and been involved in schemes for Tesco, Aldi and the Co-op, Chaldean has expanded into other forms of development including offices, warehousing and more recently residential.

Our initial entrance to the residential development sector was a development of two large executive homes at Much Hadham, Hertfordshire which has been followed by a similar type project at Newbury, Berkshire. We are now pursuing five residential development opportunities providing a combined total of 70 new homes.

Whatever the form of development, our expertise is in identifying the right opportunities that we believe have a realistic chance of deliverability and then taking them forward from their concept through to their completion.

Current Projects Include

Langley Hall – Newbury

Langley Hall is an extremely attractive listed house which sits centrally in a generous sized garden on the edge of World’s End. We have taken considerable care to sensitively refurbish and extend the property to create a substantial family house whilst retaining its charm and many original architectural features.  Throughout the property it is both light and airy and finished to a high standard with neutral decoration throughout.

Bromley Farm – Much Hadham

Chaldean successfully obtained planning permission to knock down some unsightly corrugated storage buildings and transformed the site with a development of two “state of the art” 5-bedroom family homes.

We employed a modern method of construction using Sips panels which ensured the houses have an incredibly high level of insulation, making them very low cost to run.

The owners are absolutely delighted with their new homes, see the testimonial below:

Testimonial

“Louise and I moved into Bromley Farm East in January 2017 and have been delighted with this beautiful property. The design and layout has clearly been very carefully thought through and the finish is of a high quality. Perhaps most importantly, Chaldean have been very easy and straightforward to work with from the start; communication both pre- and post-purchase has always been clear and prompt and any snags identified have been remedied exceptionally quickly and without hesitation”

Great Yarmouth – South Denes Business Park

Location is a fundamental factor in determining where we develop. Being situated close to Great Yarmouth’s deep water outer harbour and river port the South Denes Business Park is well located to serving the offshore oil, gas and the vastly expanding renewable energy sector in the Southern North Sea.

Having acquired land from the East of England Development Agency, we obtained planning permission and built the office headquarters and a warehouse for Seajacks.  BH Bus Industrial Tools will occupy the next phase with construction of a large warehouse and office facility underway.

Marston Mortaine – Morteyne Retail Park

By applying our specialist ‘in-house’ retail development knowledge we recognised a gap in the retail market at Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire.  We identified the site, achieved the planning permission and built the retail park ourselves.

This is an example of what we do.  That is to identify the right opportunities and taking them forward from their concept through to their completion.
