Vantage Homes Introduction

Company Profile

When Stefan and Stephen founded Vantage Homes it was to do more than conventional Property Development, it was to deliver on their passion to be more responsible for others, in a way that they know they can truly make a difference.

Stephen spent his youth growing up in Holland; a conventional set up, a loving family environment with a supportive mother, an amazing role model in a father and a younger brother with a very rare illness and who spent most of his early years in hospital meaning that it was difficult to lead a normal life.  Coupled with this, Stephen’s Grandpa showed signs of early stage dementia in his teenage years, which quickly accelerated to Alzheimer’s. 

Exposure to both Stephen’s Grandpa and Brother’s situations, made Stephen very aware that the small things really did matter when it comes to standard of life and being comfortable with a life-threatening illness and Stephen is determined to improve the lives of as many people as possible through immersive design-led living environments.

Stefan, also dealing with his mother’s Rheumatoid Arthritis condition from a young age, realised that he could also help others by doing what he knows best; designing and building the best living spaces for people with care requirements.

Vantage Homes has built a unique business model around its three brands:

  • Assisted Living
  • Extra Care
  • Exclusive Homes

We focus on creating housing that is innovative and individual. These two core principles are carried through
every scheme we undertake; whether that’s conversion of disused buildings or new build housing schemes.

  • Differentiate
  • Innovate
