A smarter kind of cosy

Keeping cosy in your new home is easy. Our homes could be up to 55% more energy efficient than an upgraded Victorian home. We use smart techniques, such as airtight doors, insulated roofs and special double-glazing, to make sure that draughts won't cause the winter chills.

All these simple details will keep your bills down and keep you feeling toasty. In fact, you could save £1,312 a year on your heating bills*.

When the Great British Summertime finally rolls around, we make sure you get to enjoy every last ray of sunshine. Our windows are designed to really capture the sunlight and flood your rooms with light. They even have a special coating that allows heat from the sun into your home (and makes sure no heat escapes either).

We believe a warm home is a happy one, whatever the season. So whether it's blowing a gale outside or April showers are speckling the windowpane, you can relax knowing that staying warm isn't costing you the earth. 

We create beautifully designed, high quality and energy efficient homes that are built in a sustainable and responsible way.

About these calculations

All savings are based on space and water heating in a typical gas central heated property, using an average gas price of 4.21p/kWh correct as of July 2014. Savings are the modelled differences in heating running costs between typical historic homes (sourced from SAP 2009) and modern Barratt Homes (sourced from Barratt Homes), assuming the dimensions remain the same. Dimensions are based on the Holden (detached house), Barwick (Semi-detached house), Tiverton (mid-terrace house) and Foxton (flat) Barratt Home properties. Please note that savings may vary with different historical home configurations, construction type and building orientation which has an effect upon heating requirements. This information should only be used as a guide.

A blooming great view

When the sunshine starts streaming through your smartly designed windows, why not step out into your garden and get those green fingers to work.

Whether you're planting your first apple tree or starting a vegetable patch, your garden can become the ideal hideaway. Sitting back in the sunshine and simply enjoying all the life and colour of your garden is a real treat when summer comes around.

On average, 27% of the total land on our developments is kept as green space**, providing gardens and landscaped communal areas. So you can enjoy the great outdoors as well as the great indoors.

Smart walls

Our walls use the latest building techniques to keep the heat in and your bills down.

Old gets cold

When winter starts to draw in, you'll be glad you chose a new Barratt home. Period properties can struggle to stay warm when the temperature drops.

Common problems you might find with period homes are no double-glazing, a lack of wall insulation, old boilers, damp and draughts. These all add up to bigger heating bills.

 

The bills are ridiculously cheap - our 3-month winter bill was just £108! And we hardly ever need to put the heating on. I don't think I could go back to a house that isn't energy efficient.

Warmer and happier

Our new homes are designed to be warm and welcoming, a place where you can relax after a hard day's work.

You won't have to worry about soaking in the bath or taking an invigorating shower (the aerated flow on our showers gives you power without wasting water) because your energy bills should be much more manageable.

A warm home is a happy one. So kick off those shoes and enjoy it.
