About Us

For more than 50 years, McNamara has been building and renovating high specification properties in the most desirable locations in Norfolk. Fusing vernacular materials with a modern sensibility, McNamara has developed a distinctive portfolio built on a tradition of heritage and integrity.

Michael McNamara, founder of the business, has been joined by his two sons, Ryan and Guy who have been involved with the family business for most of their lives. Drawing on Michael’s outstanding reputation and legacy of original builds and renovations, Guy and Ryan are taking the business into the future bringing their own unique skillsets.

As masters of their craft, the McNamara’s use traditional construction techniques working with Norfolk’s finest craftspeople and installation specialists. From master carpenters to bricklayers and masons – they lead a hand-picked team through meticulous designs and plan the best way to build sustainably while retaining the essence and historic relevance of the buildings themselves.



Sustainable construction has always been an integral part of what we do. Wherever possible we reuse existing materials and integrate them into the fabric of the conversion. This reduces the need to source the earth’s dwindling resources and helps retain a building’s character and integrity. We also work hard to ensure your finished new build or renovation is as carbon neutral and energy efficient as possible by implementing innovative and environmentally friendly heating systems.


As north Norfolk natives, we live and breathe the quintessential Norfolk life – our love for the region is evident in the projects we nurture and create, whether that is breathing new life into heritage properties or creating new homes that stand in harmony with their surroundings. Our buyers share our passion for creating spacious premium living spaces that are inherently connected to the environment and complement the region’s beauty.

A composed pace of life where you make the time to indulge daily in local delicacies from coastal catches to fresh artisan bakeries, bracing walks with the dogs across miles of heritage coastline or sailing through the idyllic local shoreline.
