About Archway Homes

Opening the door for you

Based near Chester and established in 2010, Archway Homes is a family run business founded on a passion for building high quality homes. The Archway team are a hand-picked group of professionals brought together to continue the established philosophy of building beautiful houses in desirable locations. The team focus on all elements of design and construction and take enormous pride in providing homes that delight modern day home buyers but that will equally withstand the fickle trends of time to sit seamlessly within their local vernacular.

We believe there are certain keys to success: -

  • Our development locations, whether rural or urban, are chosen with great care using the criteria 'Would we like to live here?'.
  • We only build smaller niche developments so creating exclusive environments where our customers can enjoy a sense of community.
  • Our design team is constantly working to improve and enhance the layouts of our homes, incorporating an increasing number of features that make them energy efficient, in line with our A-rating promise.
  • Our specification is regularly adjusted so that we offer a high-quality product with many ‘extras’ included as standard. Our goal is that our customers have a home ready to move into and enjoy from day one.
  • Our ethos is quality, not quantity, and we aim to only hand over one home per development each month, allowing our site staff and subcontractors to focus, throughout the build programme, on the standard of each individual home.
  • This also enables our sales manager the time for a more individual relationship with our customers, to enhance their customer journey.

Attention to detail, high specification and quality are intrinsic in all that we do and by concentrating on these the Archway brand has become well respected and sought after.

Our Green Agenda

The Archway Environmentality

We are committed to working towards a more sustainable future and playing our part in caring for the world we live in. Below are just some of the ways we are trying to make a difference.

A-Rated Energy Efficiency

We want to live greener and we know you do too so, from 2020, all homes on our new developments will include:

  • Solar Panels - converting the free energy of the sun into electricity for you to use around your home therefore reducing your electricity bills
  • Solar iBoost - maximising the free energy produced by your solar panels. If you have a hot water cylinder, the iBoost diverts any excess solar energy to your immersion heater, heating your water for free thereby reducing your gas bills
  • A-rated Energy Performance Certificates - the higher the rating the lower the energy bills for you. All our houses will be A-rated to keep your costs down.

Working for wildlife

We care about our furry friends and try to encourage their presence on all of our developments:

  • Every development includes bird and bat boxes to encourage wildlife
  • All gardens will have hedgehog holes in the fencing and we use stock proof fencing, where appropriate, to encourage hedgehogs and other wildlife
  • The plants in your gardens and open spaces have been specifically selected to promote biodiversity and encourage bees
  • We assess and enhance our developments by planting trees which further promote biodiversity.

Reducing your carbon footprint

We all like it when things run smoothly… and cost less:

  • Electric Vehicle Charging Points – either now or in the future running an electric vehicle will not only save you money but reduce carbon emissions.
  • Your central heating system has dual zone controls and timing features so you can ensure it suits your lifestyle and doesn’t waste energy
  • 100% of the bulbs in your home are energy efficient and we use LED spotlights in kitchens and bathrooms, which last longer and use less energy
  • Hi-therm lintels are used over the windows and external doors and we install extra loft insulation to minimise areas where heat can escape.
