Before GR Homes, Gavin Crouch and Richard Halstead owned and operated Edgeworth Constructions Pty Ltd. The company was incorporated early in 2008 to complete a 21-unit development at Edgeworth, NSW. By 2010, on completion of the unit project, Gavin and Richard entered a franchise agreement with Dixon Homes, which became Dixon Homes Hunter. After 6 years of successful construction in new home designs and house & land packages, Gavin and Richard began trading independently as GR Homes. Today, we include a wealth of experience in everything we do:

Our Background

  • • New home design and construction
  • • House and land packages
  • • Town houses, and duplexes
  • • Investment properties and multi-unit projects.

Not only are there many years of experience behind the GR Homes brand, there’s also a genuine passion that continues to drive the team to be better and to always ‘go the extra mile’.


It starts with us doing some serious listening. We learn all about your lifestyle, budget, timeline and the home you dream of. Then we match all that to your land (or ours) - before the planning begins.

You will work directly with our architects and interior designers and you’ll also be welcomed on site to view the progress with our building supervisors. And if there’s any issue or question you have, you have access to our Managing Director and General Manager at all times. We’ll be with you every step of the way to completion - and long after you have moved in. Our interest doesn’t stop when you collect the keys.


Being named a finalist in three of the 2016 HIA HUNTER HOUSING AWARDS categories means we’ve been recognised for professionalism, quality and commitment to providing highest standards of customer service and satisfaction.

To WIN the ‘Specialised Home of The Year for the Hunter Region’ is a tremendous achievement for our team. The home is a perfect example of how working closely with the client and understanding their special needs resulted in a beautiful home - and a coveted award!

Talk to us about our residential design and construction services and see why we’re so proud of this award.


At GR Homes, we know it takes more than just great people to build you a great home: you need great partners too. We love to support local industry and business and these are just some of the businesses we partner with to make it all happen.
