SINCE 1997

a Better Colne

Swan House in Marsden - built by SB Homes

For almost 30 years, our family business has been working hard to make the Colne Valley a better place to work and enjoy life.

Under the Byram Property Group umbrella, we have a diverse range of ventures that positively impact our local community.

Over the years, we have created hundreds of local employment opportunities, made our local villages more desirable places to live and work, and created commercial properties that help other businesses to thrive, whilst giving back to the community. It’s our legacy.

We promote the Colne Valley as a place to live, work and play.

Within our group of companies, we:

Build energy efficient, high quality new homes

Provide rental homes in an area that would otherwise have a shortfall of rental opportunities

Construct build-to-rent schemes for over 55s, with placemaking at their heart

Create holiday lets that attract new people to the Colne Valley

Build commercial properties that bring businesses into the area, whilst helping them to grow and flourish

Offer local people places to work and socialise
