About Us

At Mersea Homes, our mission is quite simple: we want to build quality homes that we are proud of and that people love to live in.

We are a truly family run business. Currently headed up by Managing Director Stuart Cock, it was Stuart’s Grandfather Glennie who originally started the business over 70 years ago. As a family, we’ve been involved with shaping our local community since 1947, from our very first property on Mersea Island to our current Chesterwell site of 1,600 properties and associated infrastructure.

Our family-focused ethos is extremely important to us and we wholeheartedly believe that thoughtfully designed and carefully constructed homes offer the very strongest foundations for family life.

We’re also a business that is truly embedded in our community. Stuart is a founder member of Colchester Ambassadors, a group of local business leaders who believe passionately in the opportunities offered by the town. At Mersea Homes, we feel strongly that Colchester is an exciting and aspirational place to live and bring up a family.

We are proud to support a number of carefully selected local charities and causes.
