About Us

We established our family company Gleave Homes in Cheshire in 2004 and are continuing to grow our successful, approachable and friendly team.

The company is operated from our prestigious offices in Alderley Edge. This location serves as an excellent base for the majority of our projects which tend to be in prime residential areas around Cheshire and South Manchester.

We are constantly building on a reputable and respected company using our expanding expert knowledge to develop bespoke homes with traditional aspects and contemporary living spaces.

Our goal is to maintain high standards with attention to detail and deliver the personal touch whilst ensuring that every client enjoys their new home.


‘Our new home (#9, my fifth home starting with “9”) is lovely and we feel really blessed to be in the countryside & beautiful views and yet easy access to so many high quality places. The whole “estate” is looking better and better by the day and the closeness to your original design pictures is remarkable. We look forward to the greenery and potential “social meeting area” of the central “lozenge” area. We would love it to be a “forever home” and can imagine it as such. So it was a “risk worth taking”. It is light & airy, well-finished and modern. Your on-site team, led by Andy, is also highly impressive and very responsive. Our sincerest thanks to you and your full team, including the many sub-contractors you will have used.’

‘Brian and I are absolutely delighted with our new home three months in. The buying process was very straight forward – we hadn’t bought a new home in 30 years, so not really a specialist subject for us, but we found it to be easy and enjoyable. We’ve been delighted with the build quality and that we purchased the extras that we did, as for us this has meant that the moving in process has been easy too. The support from Andy and the rest of the Gleave team has been excellent, they’ve all been extremely helpful .’

Jo & Brian, Robins Green, Agden July 2022

‘We would like to thank Chris, Emma and the Gleave Home’s team for building our bespoke dream home. You helped us through various options for making our home bespoke, kept us constantly updated throughout the build process from the point of reserving to completing the purchase. Chris and Emma, you both were always very prompt in responding to our queries. You met the target completion date as you promised at the time of reserving property, despite adverse pandemic circumstances. Well done! As soon as we entered the house, we were thrilled and astonished to see beautifully finished home. This shows your dedication and care at each step of build process to meet the customer requirements. Special thanks to Andy, Site manager and team on site are amazing, very helpful to settle us smoothly in to our new home. Andy, you are always available, smiling, pleasant and willing to help any issue or clarify any query we raised. Fantastic after sale service too. We are thoroughly enjoying our new home and don’t hesitate in recommending anyone buying a home from Gleave Homes.’

Narayana & Aruna, Robins Green, Agden March 2022

‘From the minute we met Chris and Emma on site we knew that purchasing a house from them was going to be a very enjoyable experience and it certainly was! From start to finish the whole process went smoothly, we had constant updates and pictures from Emma and when we asked for a meeting to change a few things this was never a problem. Andy the site manager is an absolute credit to the Gleave Home’s team, always on hand to help or sort out any problems if there are any. The people on site are lovely and polite and always say hi when passing. All we can say is…. we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gleave Homes if all you require is quality, value and just general superb service!  Thank you for creating our forever home!’

Justin & Nicola, Robins Green, Agden February 2022

‘We can’t thank Chris, Emma and everyone on the team enough for creating our beautiful forever home. The whole process from start to finish has been made simple and enjoyable with Chris and Emma talking us through what was happening every step of the way. The house is stunning, I knew it would be gorgeous but as soon as we walked in we were totally blown away, we absolutely love it. Andy and the team on-site are just brilliant and any questions we’ve had he’s always around and is happy to help, he’s just such a lovely guy. Not that we ever plan on moving, but if we did, we wouldn’t hesitate for a second to buy another house by Gleave Homes!’

Matt & Michaela, Robins Green, Agden February 2022

‘From the start of the process when meeting Chris in a muddy field, strings mapped out as houses, we were sold by the enthusiasm and foresight of Gleave Homes. The details in the brochure clearly showed the luxury and over sized roomed properties were NOT from your run of the mill countywide house builders. We left the site having paid the deposit! By the end of that week, the deposit process and paperwork was confirmed super quick and from there on in Chris and Emma were on hand by phone, email or site visit. As the process started pictures were sent of footings of the building going down to the first and last brick laid gave reassurance with visuals of the build quality. Then the bespoke interior choices to be made room by room with guidance from Chris and Emma with samples and displays on hand in their office to make your choices correct. The choices made a wow factor kitchen, extremely high end specification bathrooms, top quality tiles and flooring throughout. All the fixtures and fittings are named brands recognised in the industry and the results are amazing. Once moved in, that service doesn’t stop. Chris and Emma give the Gleave Homes aftercare service and the team aim to make sure every detail is covered with ease. We would strongly recommend Gleave Homes without any doubt to all home seekers looking for their forever home. With Gleave Homes quality, ease and expertise in the housing industry you will not be disappointed.’

Neill & Anna, Robins Green, Agden January 2022

‘Emma and Chris we want to say thank you so much for building our dream home. Not only have you built us a beautiful family home but you have really listened and understood our families extra needs and this is already improving the main man’s quality of life !!! We are truly grateful for your flexibility with our input and your wonderful suggestions. You couldn’t do enough. It’s been amazing to see the plans come to life! Since moving in Andy has been attentive and eager to help. We are glad we chose to ‘buy off plan’ with Gleave Homes! Thank you to you and your team.’

Andy, Kaz, Zach and Olivia, Robins Green, Lymm December 2021

‘We just wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with our beautiful home. We knew that this journey would result in an outstanding house but it really is something very special. The quality of the build is outstanding and the finish is first class. You have created a beautiful place. We keep saying that we feel like we are on holiday, the setting is certainly very unique. We are so thankful that we found you! Sending our very best wishes to you both and the team who have all contributed to this stunning place.’

Helen & Bryan, Waters Edge June 2021

‘From initial talks through Gleave Homes’ agents Jackson Stops of Alderley Edge, we were invited to walk around the current site which had two houses built out of six. We were very impressed with the attention to detail of the building work on the outside and also the interior decoration and fittings on the inside which were of a high build quality. We had the options of different fittings, carpets, paint and kitchen units with appliances of our choice and any changes were met with the minimum fuss and done to our asking and liking. I would not hesitate to buy another property from Gleave Homes.’

Gavin and Sarah, Waters Edge March 2021

‘My husband and I had been searching for our dream home for quite some time before chancing upon our Gleave Home at Waters’ Edge, Congleton. Having met with Chris, we knew from the start that we could trust him and his team to build our next home for us. Chris and Emma provided us with all the right choices and advice for choosing the features and small extras here and there. Along the way Chris and Emma and team have been patient, attentive and professional at every turn. Chris invited us to join a WhatsApp group from day one so that any questions we had could be responded to quickly and boy did we use it! Moving in went smoothly too and nothing has been too much trouble for Chris and the team.  My husband and I have bought new build properties several times before and we can honestly say that buying a Gleave home has been the best experience so far. We would recommend buying a Gleave home every time!’

J and L Zukowski, Waters Edge April 2021

‘Thank-you to all at Gleave Homes, we have found our forever home and couldn’t be happier! From our very first site visit to handover day nothing has ever been too much trouble, we have been included in every step. We have had the opportunity to make our home bespoke and unique something we have not been able to do before, this in our eyes is what makes Gleave Homes so special. Cherry Lane Farm is the most beautiful development and watching it all come together to seeing it now exceeds our expectations, the views from our windows are beautiful we honestly couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. A special mention for Andy the site Manager, from the moment we moved in he has been around to answer questions and help with anything we need, he has been amazing! Huge thank-you to Chris and Emma.’

Kyle and Laura Nixon, Cherry Lane Farm November 2020

‘The house is everything we had hoped for and beautifully finished and clearly every effort has been made to make it perfect down to every last detail. Thank you for being so patient and understanding during the move- it meant a great deal to us and helped ease the worry of moving. We couldn’t be more pleased with the final end product of our beautiful new home. A stunning location and lovely neighbours we have already found. Also a special word for Andy , the site manager , who has been terrific. , especially going out of his way to ensure we had settled in and being available to answer our questions. All in all we couldn’t have made a better choice of home or people to work with.’

Mary and Bill Stanton, Cherry Lane Farm December 2020

‘After moving in to our dream home last Friday, we have nothing but praise with the team that have created our beautiful home. From the beginning of our journey, Chris and Emma have included us in every part of the build to make it unique for us. Whatever we asked for has never been too much trouble and the finishes are second to none. We always knew it was going to be special but we have been blown away with the home they have created for us. Just one massive thank you goes out to everybody and also to the site manager Andy.’

Lisa, Craig, Lucy, Molly and Teddy Evenson, Cherry Lane Farm November 2020

‘We moved into our new home at Waters Edge at the beginning of August and have been absolutely delighted with everything. The quality of the build (and fixtures) is of the highest possible standard and Gleave Homes have been a fantastic developer to deal with, nothing has been too much trouble, no matter how small the query might be they come straight back and help. The builders (who are still on site building the last few homes) are also really good people who all go out of their way to help wherever they can. Really cannot speak highly enough of Gleave Homes, would highly recommend to anybody thinking of purchasing one of their fabulous homes.’

Customer, Waters Edge August 2020

‘We are delighted with our new Gleave Home. The quality of the build is excellent and the customer service has been first class. We now have a creative and beautiful space to enjoy family life and have no hesitation in recommending Gleave Homes to anyone. Many thanks to Chris, Emma, Andy and the team!’

Steph And Paul, Waters Edge September 2020

‘We just wanted to say how absolutely delighted we are with our new home. It’s hard to put into words how excited we feel to have the keys to our dream home. Everything is beyond what we had imagined and it’s amazing to see how 6 Cherry Lane Farm has all now come together with such charm and character. It has been a such a positive and reassuring experience working along side you both as we created our new home and we can’t thank you and your team enough for all the hard work that has gone into its creation. Andy and Angela were so good with us and very helpful at the hand-over today.’

Zoe, Peter, and Marcus Adams, Cherry Lane Farm August 2020

‘We purchased our latest property from Gleave Homes approx. 4 years ago and have to commend Chris for the excellent after sales services provided & standard of workmanship found throughout the property. Apprehensive at first to purchase from quite a low volume house builder but having experienced first-hand the end product would have no hesitation in recommending Gleave Homes in the future. During our search of new build developments for our latest home can honestly say we were very disappointed at some of the finish & construction quality of the properties viewed, the contrast with our new home could hardly be more polar and this was one of the deciding factors in purchasing form Gleave Homes.’

David Parry, The Embankment, Chester July 2015

‘We purchased our new home from Gleave Homes and we are extremely happy with the build quality, there were a few snags as expected when purchasing a new house that we reported the week we moved in and they were all fixed immediately to a high standard without delay. As the weeks rolled on other items appeared to which neither Gleave Homes or ourselves would have seen before. A quick email to Chris and Angela at Gleave Homes office and someone was straight around to fix it, without question excellent after sales service. Even now after living here 8 months I feel if a problem arose they would have somebody round to fix it within the week.  Nowadays where you read horror stories about builders selling a house with numerous problems and do nothing to fix them, its great to see a business with genuine customer service at its core.’ 

Mark and Michelle Sharples, Whitehall Barns, October 2017

‘We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone at Gleave Homes for making the process of buying our new home so easy. At every stage we were so well  looked after and any queries were dealt with immediately in a friendly, personal manner. They couldn’t do enough for us and were so helpful in responding to any requests. We are delighted with our new home. It’s bright and airy and the quality of the build and fittings is first class. Thank you Chris and Angela, it’s been a pleasure working with you!’

Brendan and Gill Conboy, Springbank Farm, December 2017

‘I am delighted with my new home! I really appreciated being involved in the internal design process and being able to make choices throughout the build. Electricity sockets are where I need them and the designs of my kitchen and bathroom have been influenced by me. This has meant that my new house truly feels like home. The service provided by Gleave Homes has been outstanding. Prompt responses to queries and action taken immediately, where required. Thank you for making buying a new home so pleasurable!’

Angela Lynch, Springbank Farm, January 2018

‘From the very beginning, when we first looked around the show home, our experience with Gleave Homes has been first class.  Nothing has seemed too much trouble for Chris or Angela, who have patiently guided us through the process of purchasing our first home together. We are now the proud owners of a very high-quality new build and are delighted by the attention to detail that a larger company would struggle to match.  It’s been exciting to be able to add our personal taste to the property, whilst retaining the high-quality fixtures, fittings and design that Gleave delivers as standard.  We also have the peace of mind that, should we need to discuss the property further, the excellent after-sales service is on hand and always willing to help.’

Richard and Joanne, Springbank Farm, February 2018

‘I am in my 66th year and have lived in a house built by Gleave Homes (Squirrels Leap) at Brookside Farm Development for 9 years now, so am qualified to comment on the quality of the property that this builder designed and built. I have no hesitation in stating that this Gleave home Property is far superior to the properties that I have lived in previously, built by many other builders. The look of the properties on the development are similar however all are individual and also different when you look more closely.  The quality of build and the fixtures and fittings in my property from the bathrooms to the kitchen are 1st class and have withstood the test of time, the finishing of all rooms could not be better. The efficiency of the H & C Water and Heating system is excellent. The technology in my house from telephone points, PC hardwire points, TV Ariel points in all rooms and if required bespoke sound system which is the case in my home is superb.  The locations that Gleave Homes selected for this development is also very pleasant. Myself and family have never had a complaint to make but whenever I have needed to contact Gleave Homes with a request as simple as what paint and colour was used on the external woodwork Mr C. Gleave is always there on the other end of the phone or email ready and only to happy to help. This personal touch by the Gleave Homes Director, which is there many years after the property was sold to me by Gleave Homes shows the class of the Gleave Homes service. I would have no hesitation in recommending the purchase of a Gleave Homes property as being easy to live in and a wise investment.’
