Gleeson Homes Open New Site at Model Village in Creswell

Bolsover District Council Deputy Leader Duncan McGregor and Council Vice Chair Rita Turner visited Gleeson’s Model Walk site to launch the development of 197 brand new Gleeson 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.

Model Walk is situated in the Model Village in Creswell, continuing with the traditional style of build throughout the village, the new Gleeson homes are now available to buy from £107,995.

Duncan McGregor and Rita Turner joined Gleeson’s Regional Managing Director Bryan Simpson and Sales Manager Joanne Willoughby-Smith to mark the start of construction of the new homes.

Joanne explains, “Buyers are often surprised at the affordability of Gleeson homes.  Most buyers find that purchasing a new Gleeson Home is cheaper than renting.  All our homes include a driveway and front and rear gardens and we also offer a range of schemes to assist first time buyers, such as the Government backed Help to Buy scheme.  Model Walk is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and public transport links.”

On visiting the site, Bolsover District Council Deputy Leader Duncan McGregor commented, "I was delighted to officially start the development of the scheme which will bring more quality houses to Creswell.  I know Gleeson work closely with the Local Authority and the local community to ensure homes are priced to suit local people and help those who are renting to get onto the property ladder.”

MJ Gleeson has recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK due to the housebuilder’s use of environmentally friendly materials such as gravel driveways, commitment to Living Wage and working closely with local communities in which they build through the Gleeson Community Matters scheme.

Bryan Simpson, Regional Managing Director at Gleeson Homes explains, “In addition to promoting home ownership to local young people Gleeson is dedicated to making a difference in the community.  We provide job opportunities for local people and subcontractors, offer apprenticeship schemes and provide sponsorship for local junior sports teams.”

If you have a junior sports team in need of sponsorship or would like further details on the Apprenticeship Scheme, Gleeson would like to hear from you.

Gleeson’s Sales Office at Model Walk is open 7 days a week from 10am until 5pm.
