Residential Developments

"Hope Homes have been excellent from the moment we viewed the show home back in April.
There's been an open dialogue with them throughout, explaining the whole process and they were very understanding when the normal hold-ups occur during the house buying process.
They've also been there to answer any queries big or small since we've moved in.
Overall we couldn't be happier with our new home and the service Hope Homes has provided.

Douglas and Stephanie, Botanics, Kilmaurs

"From reservation to moving in the process was quick and easy. The staff are all very helpful and informative with nothing being a problem. We are loving live in our new Hope Home."

Colin and Allison, Botanics, Kilmaurs

"A casual internet search a few months ago brought the Hope Homes BOTANICS logo to my attention. A curious click revealed a well designed site packed with clear information.

As soon as I read the specifications and saw the floor plans for the Fern housetype, I was hooked. One hour later I had written a brief resignation letter to my college and a longer email to a local estate agent requesting my home be placed on the market for a quick sale as soon as possible. Over the following week I found myself formally reserving a plot and flying up to Scotland to check I had done the right thing.

I am not known for swift decisions but it was clear to me on visiting the site that the proposed house, village and Ayrshire was where I was meant to spend the rest of my life. 'We' are a perfect fit and I am finding even more reasons every single day to confirm that fact.

I have found that any question or request to Hope Homes during the building process has been swiftly taken on board to make sure I have my perfect 'forever' home. I cannot recommend this development highly enough. Don't hesitate - investigate!"

S. Morgan, Botanics, Kilmaurs

"We are delighted with our new home. It has surpassed all expectations.The build quality is excellent and all staff are very helpful and accommodating with nothing being too much trouble."

Mr and Mrs Camps, Botanics Kilmaurs.

"From the first visit to the Botanics sales office in Kilmaurs we knew that we had a found our new home. The development ticked all our boxes as it was set in a small village, it was still close to Glasgow but more importantly it was environmentally efficient, the quality of the build was excellent and the layout of the house fitted our lifestyle. From the decision to buy, to moving in, the staff at Hope homes have been very supportive and have helped us in any way they can. We would highly recommend Hope Homes."

Judith and Craig Botanics, Kilmaurs

"'Quality without compromise' should be the motto of Hope Homes. Quality materials, quality build and quality service - we couldn't be more pleased with our new home."

Sheila Taylor CBE and Ronnie Taylor, Botanics, Kilmaurs

"Thanks to Hope Homes we have found a wonderful new home in Fisherton. When we started thinking about moving to Ayrshire we weren't sure where to settle. From our first visit to Fisherton we knew we had found a real gem. The development is handy for Ayr and Glasgow but surrounded by beautiful Ayrshire countryside. Looking out over the sea to Arran is a wonderful way to wind down at the end of the day. The build is of the highest quality with a strong focus on environmental efficiency. The house itself really looks after us, with plenty of room for our friends and family to visit (who have already declared it their "holiday home"!). Hope Homes have really helped us settle in, being ready to answer any questions as we find our feet here. Hope Homes have met all of our expectations and we would enthusiastically recommend the Ladywell development at Fisherton. It really is a great place to live."

Joy & Jamie, Ladywell, Fisherton

"My wife and I are both delighted with our new home and thank everyone at Hope Homes for their high standard of workmanship and customer care. The support given to us by Anne and Caroline pre- entry was excellent and Scott on site has been just as helpful, as have the plumbers and the ground workers, many thanks to all."

George and Di Ballinger, Ladywell, Fisherton

"Having spent over 40 years in architecture, specialising in private housing developments, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Hope Homes offered a 3 bedroom bungalow with a fresh approach to the public rooms layout. We had looked at a dozen pre-owned properties but none compared with the design of the Hope Homes dwelling. They are one of the few house builders that enable you to alter their house design to suit personal requirements and lifestyle, resulting in a unique home. The attentiveness of the sales staff and smiles from the tradesmen on site, took virtually all the stress out of buying the house. I'm so glad that I didn't attempt to build or alter another house of my own again!"

John and Helen Malcolm - Ladywell, Fisherton

"Hope Homes designed a bespoke internal layout for us, whilst keeping the exterior design intact. Everyone we dealt with, whether a member of the Hope family or a member of the wider workforce, was very enthusiastic and helpful. Hope Homes has a positive attitude and did everything we asked of them.
We would recommend you buy a Hope Home - great quality and service."

Mr and Mrs Perkins, Knockroon

"For many years, Hope Homes have had a reputation for building quality new homes and after seeing the Knockroon development take shape, we decided to enquire about living there.

The Hope Homes team couldn't have been more helpful in designing the house we are now proud to own.

There were many options to choose from and the range and style of kitchens, bathrooms, and paint finishes was fantastic.

We think the concept of the development is great; it's very friendly and easy to get to know people moving in around you.

It has been six months since we moved in and it has felt like our home from day one.

Thank you Hope Homes!"

Bruce and Patricia Harris, Knockroon

"From the first day we visited the show home at Knockroon, we knew we would not find the quality of build and high standard of finish anywhere else. The unique combination of a brand new, eco friendly home with the character and architecture of an 18th Century townhouse intrigued us. The concept envisaged by the Duke of Rothesay appealed to us and with the addition of access to Dumfries House Estate and the variety of woodland walks there was no competition.

Everyone at Hope Homes has been professional and friendly and all have gone the extra mile in terms of making our new home just as we envisaged. Many thanks to all."

Liz and Andy Doole, Knockroon

"I love my wee blue house and I thank you and all your staff (on site and off) for the hard work you have all put in. I do appreciate it. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful and I already feel part of the Knockroon community"

RD, Knockroon

"We bought our first house from Hope Homes in 2011. After looking around various developments in South Ayrshire we were disappointed until we found the Burns View development in Tarbolton. The standard of finish, size and layout were all fantastic and exactly what our family needed.

From start to finish the Hope Homes team were excellent at keeping us updated and helping in what way they could. We highly recommend Hope Homes and look forward to the day when we can move into one of their larger homes. For us; official rating of five star - well-done!!"

Mr & Mrs F Gormanley, Burns View, Tarbolton

"We are both delighted with our new home. The finishes are second to none. Any small teething problems were attended to immediately. The marketing team are excellent and couldn't be more helpful.
We would recommend Hope Homes to anyone."

Mr & Mrs Wallace, Knockroon

"I am delighted with my purchase at Knockroon. The property is finished to a very high standard with an emphasis on quality throughout.
The whole process was enjoyable and trouble-free, all staff very knowledgeable.
I would have no hesitation in recommending a purchase from Hope Homes."

Mr D McGarvie, Knockroon

"The type and quality of houses Hope Homes build are second-to-none. I rave to everyone about them. They are so spacious."

Mr & Mrs McDowall, Burns View, Tarbolton


Commercial Projects

"Alongside their work at Knockroon, Hope Homes also helped deliver many projects on the Dumfries House Estate itself, acting as lead contractor and builder on an array of projects over the years. PWCF would like to thank Ian and Anne Hope, in particular, who had the courage, skills and dedication to take on these projects."

Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation

"May I congratulate you on both a beautiful building, and a workforce who do you credit. They have also been polite and courteous."

Nearby resident of commercial building

"We were very pleased when Hope Homes won the tender to build The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory for our Charitable Trust. We were even more pleased when we witnessed the very high standard of workmanship and the solution-based approach of the staff. Despite the challenging hilltop site, the build was completed ahead of schedule.

Hope Homes is a pleasant company to work with and we were able to experience a contract with not a single difference between us.

The Observatory is a landmark project with immense potential for the whole of Scotland. Hope Homes has every reason to be as proud of it as we are."

J Mark Gibson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory

"The workmanship and finish are of the highest quality and nothing was a bother. We were fully involved and consulted at all stages of the project. Excellent job.
Highly recommend Hope Homes."

Riccarton Church Hall, Kilmarnock.

"Our experience of Hope Homes has been marked by their approach of doing the job to high professional standards and leaving us with a quality product. Instilled throughout the workforce is a pride in their work and this is evident during works on site and at completion. We are also appreciative of the personal approach of the directors of Hope Homes to be involved and deal with any problems as they arise."

Ayrshire Housing Association

Bespoke Homes

"I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with the building of the house.
From day one, starting with a meeting with Scott, everything that Hope Homes was involved with went like clockwork.
Your staff are courteous and very professional and the workmanship is second to none.
I am absolutely delighted with the house and it only took 10 weeks to build!
I wouldn't think twice about recommendation. A great big thank you to you all."

Nancy Cuthbertson, Fenwick

"Our new bespoke home is everything we hoped for. Everyone at Home Homes was very polite, friendly and the work carried out was to a very high standard, nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate in recommending Hope Homes."

Michael & Kate

"From the moment that we decided on Hope Homes to complete our dream home we knew straight away that it was not only the most important decision we had ever made but also the best.
From the minute we met Scott and the rest of the team we knew we had made the correct decision to employ Hope Homes. The professionalism displayed by the team as a whole was incredible. The time it took to build our house was three months and we were amazed at the quality of the finish on our home. The quality of the workmanship was second to none and it was a pleasure to deal with the workmen on a daily basis. I would recommend Hope Homes to anyone as I couldn't ask for a better home to be built for my family.
A special thanks has to go to Ian, George, Archie, Caroline, Scott, Anne & Ian and the rest of the boys involved who provided myself and my wife Gillian with the perfect place to grow old and enjoy the view! Keep up the great work Hope and thanks for the House!"

Stuart & Gillian McMillan

"To all at Hope Homes - thank you for our beautiful house! We were so impressed with our first home in the Langdale Park development at Ochiltree that we opted for Hope Homes to build our bespoke farmhouse. We were not disappointed. The build took 12 weeks from start to finish; we couldn't believe how quickly the house went up. The team - both on and off site - were extremely helpful and courteous. We are now enjoying making the finishing touches to our new home. Thanks again to you all."

Stuart & Jen, Tarbolton

"We love our new house - and have been so impressed with everyone at Hope Homes, including all of your workers from Jimmy & Herbie doing the groundworks with Scott right through to the decorators and Jim doing the (very minor) final snagging. Your team arrived early every morning and Rab kept them going throughout some rough weather - even walking a mile up the hill when the road was blocked with snow! Anne & Archie kept us informed of what was happening, and guided us through the many decisions and stages. The quality of the workmanship has been very good indeed, and we would not hesitate to recommend Hope Homes to anyone wishing a top quality home."

Iain and Fiona, Renfrewshire

"We have now been living in our dream house, built by Hope Homes, for nine months and every day it feels as special as it did on the day we moved in. Our first Christmas here will be truly magical.

From the time of Scott Hope's first inspection of the existing building, Hope Homes set out to tackle what could have been a very complicated project with a tremendous "can-do" attitude. The original building - an old, stone-walled barn - was carefully renovated, re-roofed and then extended with a new steel-framed structure. The original stonework was preserved and doorways and windows were sympathetically restored to an extremely high standard. Our thanks go to Ian Hope for his guidance and of course to Daryl McMurdo, the stonemason.

We stayed on site during the build and without exception found the tradesmen and subcontractors to be extremely friendly, considerate and courteous. There were too many to name them all but all were very skilled and went to great lengths to accommodate our wishes, using Hope Homes' suppliers as well as installing finishes that we had sourced ourselves.

Inevitably with this type of project problems will arise, but all were resolved quickly and efficiently thanks to the diligence of site manager Rab Davidson and the co-operation between Hope Homes, the architect and engineer. Behind the scenes, Anne Hope and the office staff were constantly pleasant and helpful.

We can't thank everyone at Hope Homes enough for taking our plans and dreams from paper to reality in such short space of time - six months from the first down-takings until the handover of keys. The quality of the build has been complimented by all who have come to visit. If we ever have need of further building work we will be calling Hope Homes directly and would highly recommend anyone else to do the same!

Thank you Hope Homes."

Jim and Katy Garven (Fenwick)

"I admire the positive, willing approach from all your staff members and, of course, would recommend you to anyone."

Mr and Mrs D W.

"Our house was built in 14 weeks with no problems whatsoever. - It was a traditional build and if anybody else had built it I know for a fact I would still be waiting on it months later!! Thanks Hope Homes ."

Mr and Mrs Rowney, Crosshill

"We can only thoroughly recommend the work of Hope Homes, who completed the build of our bespoke home, North of Glasgow, in the space of only 12 weeks. The team, both on and off site, were helpful, dedicated and hardworking, ensuring that that the job was completed to the highest standard.

We would like to thank everyone at Hope Homes for their hard work and would have no hesitation in recommending them in the future."

Mr Mackintosh and Miss Gemmell, East Dunbartonshire

"It is now seven years since we first met with Ian Hope at the site of the former South Mossgiel farmhouse and steading, where only a few stones remained.

Ian agreed with us as to the potential of this site and encouraged us to pursue our dreams.

We now have a quality family home built to a high standard. We have been able to choose from Hope Homes suppliers, source our own goods and ask Hope Homes to source other items, from doors, to fireplace to staircase - all to ensure we could build the house that WE wanted.

If problems arose, everyone involved, from our Architect to those on site, worked together to ensure that they were overcome.

The end result - we have the house that we wanted, where we wanted it and when we wanted it - a testament to everyone involved."

Mr and Mrs Wyllie, Mauchline

"We would like to thank each and every one of the Hope Homes' team for making our new home a dream come true. It is everything we had hoped for and more and we can't thank you enough for all the time, effort and attention to detail that went in to make a truly wonderful family home.

We have had so many lovely comments about the house and are extremely pleased to pass on the Hope Homes recommendation!"

Gavin & Rebecca Stewart, Turnberry

"We would like to thank the Hopes and all their staff, especially the men on site who worked very hard to get our house ready earlier than our original completion date.

Everyone at Hope Homes is polite, friendly, and their work is to an extremely high standard. We are delighted with our new home.

We wish The Hopes and their workforce all the best for the future and would highly recommend them. "Delivered early and on budget""

Mr & Mrs McQuiston, Maybole

"We never considered the idea of using anyone other than Hope Homes to build our house. Their reputation is second to none and we have not been disappointed. Our house was build on schedule and within budget over winter. We were kept up to date throughout, being involved in any decisions in real time and as they occurred.

Everyone we dealt with was approachable and professional every step of the way."

Mr & Mrs P Jones, Mid Barbeth, Drongan

"This is the third new home which Hope Homes have built for our family - testament to our confidence in the quality, standard of personal attention, and promises delivered. We are delighted with the latest addition."

Mr & Mrs J Smith Craigie, Kilmarnock

"What can we say about Hope Homes, but professional, hard working and friendly. From start to finish the house was built and completed in 9 weeks, which is no mean feat. The overall care and attention to detail was superb and nothing was too much bother. It was a pleasure to work with Hope Homes"

Mr & Mrs M Smith, Mossblown

"Hope Homes have built a new home for us in a professional manner and without any fuss. From start to finish it has be a joy dealing with people in their employ. Our new home is beautiful in every way because of the standard of finish on display. Every request and suggestion was acted upon and we were kept fully informed as the project moved on. We wish their business success for the years to come and thank them sincerely for a job well done."

Mr & Mrs Montgomerie, Ochiltree
