About Elivia Homes

We build homes and communities that last, on a foundation of passion, progress and positive change.

What we do

Elivia Homes was formed in 2022 through the coming together of our two regional, award-winning businesses, formerly known as Vanderbilt Homes and Crayfern Homes. Vanderbilt Homes was founded in 2004 and now operates as our Central region, while Crayfern Homes was founded in 1992 and operates as our Southern region. In 2023, we acquired Millwood Designer Homes, which was founded in 1991, with it becoming our Eastern region. Together, Elivia Homes is committed to delivering sustainable growth and maintaining a proud reputation as one of the most trusted and admired housebuilders across the South East.

We are dedicated to building unsurpassed developments that help people and places thrive. Our developments are made by the finest craftspeople to create homes unlike any other. Throughout the design and build process we consider the finer details of how life will be lived in our homes, delivering not just a property, but instead a home.

We have years of experience and shared expertise across our Central, Southern and Eastern regions that enables us to produce developments of distinction. Our sales team will help to find your dream Elivia home and guide you through the process to ownership. Whether you’re part exchanging an existing property or looking for a new start, our characterful developments are an exceptional place for a life well lived.
