About Fairgrove Homes

Fairgrove is a family-run home-building business formed in 1995 by Steve and Christine Midgley and over the past two decades we’ve grown into an award-winning regional developer with a reputation for quality and the highest level of customer service.

Building up to 50 new properties each year throughout Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, East Staffordshire and South Yorkshire, we build both complete new homes, ready to move into, but we are also a specialist in unique homes whereby we enable buyers to modify the internal layout and other features of their new home before it’s built.

At Fairgrove we build to a very high quality level which we set as at least 10% above the NHBC national standards. We use only traditional masonry and materials, and the designs of our homes are constantly being updated to incorporate the latest energy-efficiency requirements.

As a family-run business, we pride ourselves on our customer service . Our Directors are actively involved in all aspects of the business and are keen to continually improve and learn from everyone who buys a Fairgrove home. Our small, dedicated team works hard to ensure we meet and exceed our customers’ varied requirements and expectations.
