The Clarendon Story
The Clarendon Homes story started in 1999 when friends Steve Jarrett and Kenny Hill decided to combine their experiences in construction (Steve had over 15 years’ experience in the industry, while Kenny had his own window company). They had a vision to create a bespoke housing company where customers’ needs are taken into consideration, going the extra mile to ensure they create homes rather than houses. Clarendon properties feature added touches such as an element of choice in kitchens and bathrooms which is an exciting opportunity for clients to customise their new homes, a factor which makes Clarendon unique in the industry.
The business started off in a small office above a garage, with Director Steve Jarrett and Kenny’s son Gareth. Over the years Clarendon Homes has expanded, with close friends, family, and valued members joining the Clarendon team and moving to the current purpose built office in Harrietsham in 2013. Clarendon currently has almost 100 staff members, with various departments in the office including in-house architects who create well thought out, desirable designs.
At the heart of Clarendon is its staff, who strive to work towards providing customers with their perfect luxury home. Staff are encouraged to progress through the company, with various qualifications and training offered. Clarendon employs the majority of their labourers and skilled trades, while offering private training and an apprenticeship scheme, to ensure the same high quality is reached on every build. This investment in staff ensures that customers receive a high level of care in every part of their Clarendon experience.
