Charles Church

Persimmon House, Fulford, York, North Yorkshire, YO19 4FE

With over four decades of experience in the housebuilding industry, Charles Church has established itself as one of the leading housebuilders in the country. It builds homes all across the UK, suitable for a range of budgets and buyer requirements, from first-time buyers to growing families.

It is known for its traditional designs, and strives to reflect the local architecture while sensitively converting and restoring historic and commercial buildings. Where possible, period or regional features are incorporated, including its trademark brick and knapped flint combination, along with decorative tile hanging and the use of natural stone.

It has an impressive portfolio of homes to suit all lifestyles, in both rural and city locations. In order to help buyers purchase their home, Charles Church offers a number of incentives. It participates in the government-backed Help to Buy scheme across its developments, as well as Help to Buy Wales, Help to Buy Scotland, Part Exchange and its own service, Home Change, where it will help the buyer sell their current home.

The company aims to make its homes as energy-efficient as possible. It does this in a number of ways, including adding significantly more floor, wall and loft insulation, advanced double-glazing to keep the heat in, highly efficient heating systems such as energy-efficient condensing boilers and construction techniques like solar panels and air-source heat pumps.

Wherever possible, many period or regional features are incorporated, including its trademark brick and knapped flint combination, decorative tile hanging and the use of natural stone.

Perhaps best known for its traditional designs, Charles Church has not remained rooted in the past, however, and has evolved to ensure that it continues to meet and exceed the demands of a new generation of homeowners. That is why you will now find an impressive array of Charles Church homes to suit all lifestyles in both rural and city centre locations. Not only does the scope of its developments now encompass traditional design reflecting the prevailing local architecture, but also embraces contemporary and exciting architectural styles and breathes new life into redundant historic and commercial buildings through their sensitive conversion and restoration.

What remains the same, however, is the company’s emphasis on exacting standards and attention to detail at every stage of the construction process, enabling it to achieve in its homes a totally unmistakable quality and sense of style. The results of this unique combination of principles have been rewarded with numerous prestigious consumer and industry awards over the years.
