Our Story

Homes not just built, but crafted.

A 50 year reputation for traditional quality

Hicks Homes is based in the Berkshire town of Woodley, and from there we have been creating high quality homes and developments in the Thames Valley for 50 years. 

Our work includes new homes and apartments, conversions and the renovation of listed buildings, but the standards remain the same for all: an unwavering insistence on traditional craftsmanship and close attention to detail.

Whenever possible we employ local craftsmen who share our high standards. We are a family business, established in 1971, and take pride in our long-standing reputation for quality and customer service. People who know Hicks trust us to create homes that complement their local environment and delight their owners.
