When only perfection is good enough

We understand how important luxury London homes are to our clients and we take this responsibility very seriously. When you trust us with your prestigious construction project, you have the security of knowing that your property is in the safest possible hands. Walter Lilly is acknowledged among clients the world over as London’s premier residential construction company. We work on exclusive projects of every scope and scale, from splendid restorations of Grade I listed buildings through to architectural creations of dazzling modernity. Whatever the assignment, you can be confident that it will be completed with meticulous attention to detail, backed by impeccable client service and aftercare. And as you would expect, discretion and confidentiality are a given at all times.

Creating luxury homes for discerning clients

To deliver the best, we make it our business to employ the best. The Walter Lilly brand is built upon the collective experience of its people. We pride ourselves on the strength of our professional relationships, which are founded over many years and based on a culture of integrity and trust. Teamwork and cooperation are the cornerstones of our success: our family of talent includes estimators, planners, technicians, engineers, architects, designers, subcontractors and suppliers, all of whom are dedicated to completing your project to the highest standard – on schedule and on budget.

Quality is at the heart of all that we do

Vitally, we understand the challenges of working in a busy 24-hour city. Building high end homes in central London is a logistically demanding task, especially when managing major structural changes, such as extensions or subterranean excavations. Our experience enables us to manage the complexities of operating in an urban environment, where space and manoeuvrability are at a premium. As well as working closely with our clients, we enjoy excellent relationships with local authority officers. Communication is our highest priority, and you can be confident that any disruption to you, your family and your neighbours during building will be kept to an absolute minimum.

The capital’s ultimate prestige construction brand

It is no coincidence that over the last decade Walter Lilly has been responsible for building many of London’s most exclusive residential developments. Trusted by discerning clients the world over, the Walter Lilly brand is a byword for luxury and refinement. We take our clients’ dreams and turn them into reality, pushing creative boundaries to create uniquely personal luxury homes that speak volumes about their occupants. Recent projects include a £9 million fit out of a 27,000 square foot exclusive house in Hampstead, and the £28 million subterranean extension and full refurbishment of a 22,000 square foot Grade I listed house in Mayfair.
