Chapter One

Let's start at the beginning

Chapter Homes

We at Chapter Homes work hard to provide stylish, quality homes and firmly position ourselves as one of the region’s premier house builders.

The company was formed in 2015 to improve the county’s housing offer by providing well-designed, quality homes that meet the needs of people wanting to buy and rent in County Durham.

In addition to meeting the needs of home buyers across County Durham, we’re also investing in our roots by creating local jobs, using local contractors and boosting the local economy.

Construction has started on our first development, Eden Field in Newton Aycliffe, which will provide 125 high quality two, three and four bedroom homes.

We know that each home buyer is unique, so Chapter Homes doesn’t have a ‘one size fits all’ attitude. Instead we have developed our houses and our offer to suit our customers – offering homes for sale or rent to give greater flexibility for our customers.  Whatever your particular needs we have a wealth of experience and expertise and will work with you to find the right fit for you.

Interest in Eden Field is high already, it looks set to be a best-seller. We’re confident that you’ll love our homes so why not come along and join our story.


Chapter Homes is committed to being a responsible business.

Along with our build partner, Tolent, we will work to make sure that our construction activities promote and adhere to the principles of responsible business practice – aiming to always create a positive influence on the surrounding environment and communities in which we work.

We will invest our time and our expertise to leave a legacy beyond when the final keys are handed over too. So local employment, education and communities continue to benefit from Chapter Homes long after the build activity ends.

Planning our developments starts  with respecting our ‘natural’ neighbours. Retaining existing greenery and protecting wildlife in the area is a responsibility we take very seriously. Our team of architects plan in soft landscaping and open spaces combined with any natural topography to not only provide our new residents with a pleasant outlook but to also take advantage of the acoustic benefits that strategic planting offers in reducing noise pollution. We’re creating a nice place to live.

And we’re not a developer who packs in as many plots as possible. Customers are at our heart, we know that your outside space is as important as our house design so we’re confident that you’ll love your own private garden and attractive landscaping around our developments.

At Chapter Homes we want to compliment and enrich the communities in which we work. We understand that each community is unique so we tailor our engagement programme to reflect this.

We do this by listening, learning and engaging.  We talk and listen to our neighbours, from local residents and shopkeepers to businesses and schools, and use the feedback they give us to help shape our properties and developments.

By involving local schools, colleges and community groups we create training, work placement and employment opportunities.

We also produce and deliver regular community updates as a new development progresses and make sure we’re available to answer any questions or queries that may arise. Our door is always open.


Each development is a new chapter. But we’re not just building new homes and new beginnings for our home owners, we also want to leave a legacy of opportunity long after our new homes are completed. Working in partnership with Tolent we are committed to providing new employment and apprenticeship opportunities for residents in the area.

Our relationship with New College Durham, supports our commitment to promoting and developing the construction industry by providing its construction students with access to our developments, work placements and industry workshops.

Our development at Eden Field, Newton Aycliffe, will provide five apprenticeship opportunities.
