Our Developments

We specialise in select locations in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, building innovative designs that reflect the local landscape and yet also meet the stringent regulations required to meet the zero carbon agenda. We pride ourselves on being adaptable and forward thinking in designing properties that range from traditional family homes to more quirky, contemporary designs.

Bespoke Homes & Home Extensions

Our strength is in interpreting your plans into a design that works for you. We can offer a selection of previous designs to choose from, or our designers will work with you to produce an individual property especially for you. Our years of experience and knowledge of the local planning regulations will help to form the designs.

quoteWe want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Fairgrove for their hard work in building our new home. We had some issues with finance and yet you were flexible enough to make sure we had a ‘watertight’ shell on time, and the team on site were as friendly & helpful as they could possibly be. We would definitely recommend Fairgrove Homes. Gloria & Mick Isherwood, Derbyshire


Commercial Projects

The Commercial Division has successfully supported a range of new commercial building ventures ranging from the health sector to nursery and specialist retail projects. This is an area of the business which is showing real results with a number of successful projects already completed.

Award Winning Designs

In (year 2004) we were pleased to receive a civic design award for our work converting an old mill at Sutton in Ashfield, an award of which we are especially proud.


Supporting Local Communities

We take pride in our commitment to our corporate responsibility. This means we invest time and resources in providing a positive input into the East Midlands region. We commit to a local charity annually, with various fund raising activities taking place throughout the year. These have included Rainbows Childrens Hospice, the County Air Ambulance Trust and currently Treetops Hospice.

Quality Assurance

Customer care is something we take very seriously, and we invest considerable time in continually improving our quality and ensuring that we support you through every step of the build process. Many of our customers come back to us when they are ready to move on - a step that says more than we ever could about our commitment to customer excellence.
