At MAISON IOM we undertake commissions for replacement dwellings, new-build homes, grade listed refurbishments, remodeling, extensions and beyond.

Every single client is unique and each project is designed, developed and tailored in a unique way to fulfill the client’s requirements and reflect their lifestyle and personality in a truly bespoke manner.

We love to work closely with our clients in order to interpret their needs with a passion and enthusiasm that makes the process an enjoyable one for everyone.

The creative interpretation of space, scale and proportion is paramount to each and every undertaking. Be it the sensitive handling of a listed building renovation, the creation of a luxurious new private home or the creation of a stylish country retreat, we live by our aim to provide the very best of twentyfirst century living to each and every client.

Our team has been working in the high end sector for many years, delivering homes at this level of exceptional standard requires a sharp eye for detail and strong close relationships with leading market specialists.

From the best contractors, interior designers, leisure pool & spa, home automation specialists, through to highly accomplished craftsmen, all of whom help enable us to efficiently co-ordinate each project to create homes of the highest standard.
