Jones Homes celebrates its roots on Cheshire Day

Promotional Feature

Wednesday 30 March marks the anniversary of the county being granted a charter of liberties by King Edward I in 1300 – it's very own Magna Carta.

Fast forward 700 years and the day is an opportunity to recognise everything that makes Cheshire such a great place in which to live, work and play.

The county will always have a special place in the heart of everyone at Jones Homes.

It was here, in Alderley Edge, where Peter Emerson founded the company back in 1959. A joiner by trade, he worked for his father's business before starting his own company building homes on small plots of land in the county.

The business slowly expanded and today it is part of the Emerson Group, one of the largest privately owned property development companies in the UK.

Although Jones Homes has grown well beyond its Cheshire heartland, with divisions in Lancashire, Yorkshire and the South East of England as well as operations as far afield as Portugal and Florida, the company has remained loyal to its roots.

To this day, the company's head office remains in Alderley Edge, where its North West division is also based.

Simon Whalley, Sales Director for Jones Homes North West, said: "Over the past 60 years, Jones Homes has built 16 developments across Cheshire.

"We are extremely proud of our Cheshire roots and the contribution we have made to the county over the past 60 years. We pride ourselves on building high-quality homes in desirable locations and few places are more desirable than this wonderful county of ours.

"We have created beautiful new communities throughout Cheshire and remain committed to delivering the very best in house design and customer service to homebuyers in the county. Sanctuary Wilmslow, our flagship scheme for over 55s, has introduced the pioneering concept of active adult living to the UK, while construction work is continuing at our Westlow Heath development in Congleton.

"An exclusive collection of luxury four and five-bedroom detached houses are about to go on sale on Adlington Road in Wilmslow, next to our Bollin Park development, and we have recently acquired land to build 50 homes at a new development within the Alderley Park estate just outside Alderley Edge.

"We look forward to building more dream homes, creating new jobs and investing in local communities across Cheshire for many more years to come."
