The meaning of ‘Laragh’ derives from the Gaelic for ‘a place of special significance to a person’ and Laragh Homes carries that sentiment on to ensure that each house it creates becomes a cherished home. From its Cambridgeshire-based home, Laragh Homes is dedicated to building high quality bespoke houses and apartments in Cambridge and the surrounding villages. It has completed an extensive portfolio of developments in sought-after locations, either as sole Laragh projects, or as part of a partnership with other developers, landowners or social housing organisations.

Founded in 2007, Laragh Homes prides itself on its expertise and vision, as well as the unrivalled knowledge of the Cambridge property market. For Laragh Homes’ managing director Simon Somerville-Large, selecting prime sites and developing distinctive, quality homes has always been a passion. With many high profile developments now completed in and around Cambridge, Laragh is looking forward to developing an exciting future for both the company, and the homeowners who choose to invest in a new Laragh home.
Our portfolio of completed projects speaks for itself and the feedback from discerning homeowners and investors is that we are creating a new standard of luxury houses that is beyond the usual. Laragh’s team of professionals share many decades of combined property experience which allows the company to tailor its service to meet the individual requirements of each project from site acquisition and design, to sales and after-sales care.
Building for the future
In the summer of 2011, after several years of continued growth, Laragh House Developments joined forces with property and investment company Rheebridge. The high profile deal resulted in David Rapley, Rheebridge’s Managing Director, acquiring a 50% share of Laragh. The pair previously worked together for nine years at Camstead Homes, the company founded and formerly owned by David Rapley. To find out more about Rheebridge’s approach to investment, property development and social enterprise projects, please click here.
The acquisition means that Laragh can pursue larger scale independently funded projects to run alongside other strategic partnerships and joint venture projects. Simon and David’s partnership means that their combined enthusiasm and experience will enable Laragh to continue to grow the company in order to deliver a wide range of exciting projects throughout the region.
Our mission is to build unique homes of quality and style in excellent locations for our purchasers to enjoy and for our team to be justly proud of.
