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.


‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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.’

‘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.’
