NORTH West homebuilder Redrow has launched a quest to find the longest-standing owner of a Redrow home to help mark a monumental business milestone.

As it celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, the premium housebuilder, who built its first homes in the early 1980s in North Wales and its North West heartland, is on the hunt for original and long-term residents to share their experiences and unique stories.

For those who enter, the longest-standing Redrow customer(s) will win a prize of £500 as a thank-you for telling their story.

Founded in 1974, Redrow was created by Liverpool-born Steve Morgan CBE with just £5,000, loaned to him by his father.

With hard work and dedication, five years later the company expanded from civil engineering into main contract building, seeing Redrow embark on its first housing development in Denbigh, North Wales.

After that, the company quickly expanded into the homes sector, with early developments across North West England including in Chester, Backford, Warrington and Northwich in Cheshire; Greasby, Heswall, Moreton and Bromborough on the Wirral; and Belle Vue, Bredbury, Romiley, Cheadle and Sale in Greater Manchester.

Most recently, Redrow became the first large housebuilder to introduce air source heat pumps into all of its new developments with underfloor heating as standard, reaffirming its commitment to creating future-fit homes, with greener, more efficient features, a top priority for homebuyers according to recent research.

Over the years, Redrow has built more than 120,000 homes, housing the equivalent population of a major city like Nottingham, and now has twelve regional divisions across England and Wales including the NW division, which operates in North West of England and North Wales.

Although Redrow’s first scheme in Denbigh may have consisted of just 36 bungalows, it has evolved its home designs over the years and continuously innovated building everything from apartments to penthouses, family houses and first buyer homes.

Today, it has developments located across Cheshire, including garden villages in Woodford, Ledsham, Chester and Daresbury, as well as ventures in Hartford, Nantwich, Knutsford and Congleton.
