About Developer

Charles Church - The Name on the Finest Homes

When Charles and Susanna Church laid the foundations of their first home in 1965, they were doing more than building a desirable residence. They were turning their vision of the perfect home into a benchmark for quality and a legacy for future generations to appreciate.

In the intervening years, Charles Church has grown to establish itself as one of the country’s foremost housebuilding brands whilst maintaining its unrivalled reputation for the design and quality of the homes it builds.

Over four decades later, their principles remain the cornerstone of every home we build. Charles Church’s philosophy of combining aesthetically pleasing designs with traditional building techniques is as relevant today as it was then, and the company prides itself on the sympathetic way in which its homes are designed to harmonise with their surroundings. Wherever possible, many period or regional features are incorporated, including its trademark brick and knapped flint combination, decorative tile hanging and the use of natural stone.

Perhaps best known for its traditional designs, Charles Church has not remained rooted in the past, however, and has evolved to ensure that it continues to meet and exceed the demands of a new generation of homeowners. That is why you will now find an impressive array of Charles Church homes to suit all lifestyles in both rural and city centre locations. Not only does the scope of its developments now encompass traditional design reflecting the prevailing local architecture, but also embraces contemporary and exciting architectural styles and breathes new life into redundant historic and commercial buildings through their sensitive conversion and restoration.

What remains the same, however, is the company’s emphasis on exacting standards and attention to detail at every stage of the construction process, enabling it to achieve in its homes a totally unmistakable quality and sense of style. The results of this unique combination of principles have been rewarded with numerous prestigious consumer and industry awards over the years.

The ultimate winner however, is the buyer of a Charles Church home.
