Building a more neighbourly world

We don’t just build houses. We create homes, exceptional spaces, and new communities where families love, grow and thrive.

We’re part of Peel L&P. That means that we’re passionate about our heritage in the North and proud to be a part of a company that has been transforming the region and enhancing people’s lives for over 40 years.

At Northstone, we innovate, adapt and regenerate spaces and places. We create sustainable, energy-efficient homes in community-focused spaces that shape the future of living.

Our ethos

We live for that feeling when you step through your door and into your own personal sanctuary. The contentment of a comfortable and relaxing space that works for you and your family.

We want our unique and intuitive design features to surprise you at first and then make you question how you ever did without them, while our spaces will delight, showcase the natural world, and encourage community.

Building communities

We’re passionate about creating spaces, homes and places for our Northern neighbours to live, thrive and grow.
