Homes built with an ethos of quality, style and energy efficiency …

Gusto Homes was founded 25 years ago by the group’s CEO, STEFF WRIGHT, and has established itself as a leading name in the regional house-building scene.

THE company has a well-earned reputation for not only the style and quality of the homes it builds but also for its innovative approach to the design of energy efficient new dwellings.

Steff has brought together a team of creative and innovative designers with a highly skilled, well-qualified and experienced construction workforce to create homes in which buyers can have confidence and pride. Above all Gusto are creating dwellings which reflect the demands of contemporary lifestyles with the concerns of environmental impacts.

“I think the common denominator that links all new homes developed by and alongside the Gusto Homes brand, is the meticulous loving attention to every detail of the houses we build,” said Steff, “and the exceptional locations we select.”  To paraphrase an old advertising slogan, `Gusto Homes are so good, that the owners choose to live in one themselves…’ It would be hard to find a better recommendation.

Gusto Homes currently have properties available at the following locations:

At Collingham & North Carlton, these eco-homes are less expensive to run

Super-stylish townhouses close to Southwell town centre

Comfy & secure, delightful retirement bungalows close to all amenities


This attractive new Gusto Homes development offers 40 high quality homes in the sought-after village of Collingham. The village is situated between the City of Lincoln and the nearby picturesque historic market town of Newark, which enjoys superb access to the national road and rail network.

There is a wide choice of attractive new homes offering 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms, and with phase 1 sold out, the passive solar homes on phase 2 have just been released for sale.

These spacious open plan homes have eco-­features which will substantially enhance their energy performance compared to national requirements. The integrated solar panels add to the modern design and with triple glazing and super insulated walls these properties will cost substantially less to run than a standard new home.

Luxury, eco lifestyle in an idyllic woodland setting. Gusto Homes worked in partnership with the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society on the development which is within a 12-acre, woodland fringed setting adjacent to the Lincolnshire Showground. Phase 1 was completed and sold in 2017 and the final phase started construction last year and is now nearing completion.

The vision for The Edge was to develop a real community lifestyle. The site has a tennis court, allotments three ponds and five acres of woodland — an enviable environment not normally associated with modern housing developments.

The final chance for buyers to move onto this award-winning development is by purchasing one of the five high quality, 2-bedroom bungalows or one of the very spacious 4-bedroom detached family homes which form the final phase.

The concept was to provide ‘Grand Design’ style homes with a host of energy saving, A rated passive solar specifications which include up to 5kWp of solar power from roof panels, triple glazed windows and doors plus insulation levels which leave homeowners requiring minimal heating. The homes use a whole house heat recovery ventilation system to maintain a continuous supply of fresh filtered air whilst retaining heat.

Gusto Homes, with their ethos as eco­housing specialists, have done all they can to reduce delivery miles as part of the build and sourced craftsmen, designers and suppliers from the local area, in keeping with the development’s environmental and creative concept.

Internally the homes offer open plan living and kitchen spaces opening onto the south facing private gardens overlooking and leading to communal woodland and amenities. Gusto Homes have ensured the provision of high specification fixtures and fittings, using local businesses to manufacture bespoke kitchens and cabinets to achieve a high specification, luxury finish.

“Having moved onto Woodlands Edge myself two years ago I can say with full confidence that not only are the homes wonderful properties to live in, the whole development and sense of community creates an enjoyable lifestyle,” said Steff. “This final phase adds a couple of new house types to the development with the 2-bedroom luxury bungalows being perfect for an active retirement lifestyle and the large 4-bedroom properties suiting a growing family.”

Prices for phase 2 at Woodlands Edge start from £300,000 for a 2-bedroom bungalow up to £499,000 for one of the spacious 4-bedroom detached homes.

Pop in and visit the show home, open every Saturday 10am-2pm.
