Ian Hughes

Managing Director


After leaving school and before embarking on his career within the Property Industry, Ian worked in a wide and varied range of roles ranging from Gym Instructor, to selling commercial trailers and working for a local Rolls Royce and Saab dealership. Ian also took time out to travel, living for several months in Reggio Calabria, Italy.

Having returned to the UK in 1988, Ian moved to London and began his long and illustrious career within the Residential Property Sector. Ian began as a Sales Consultant for a London based Estate Agency, before working his way up to becoming Group Sales & Marketing Director and a main Board member of St James Homes Ltd, a property development company.

St James Homes Ltd was originally formed in 1998 as a joint venture owned by the Berkeley Group and Thames Water which, in time, grew from a standing start with 4 staff (inc Ian) to 3 regional companies, 200 hundred staff and an annual T/O of £250m.

In 2003, Ian made the decision to return to the South Coast where he founded Hush Developments Ltd. The rest, as they say, is history apart from Ian’s ongoing desire to create fabulous homes in stunning locations for his clients to enjoy and create their own memories for many years to come.

Out of hours and when time allows, Ian loves working out in the Gym, spending time with friends and loved ones and spending time in London, his place of birth.
