At Beechwood we’re building some of our most popular home styles from the award-winning Barratt Premier collection.

Spacious homes for today's buyers
These beautiful homes are the result of extensive market research into what buyers want. Traditional exteriors blend with modern interior layouts, creating light and spacious living areas.

Smart construction for high energy savings
You’ll find quality build and materials throughout. Energy-efficient central heating, double glazing and high standards of insulation mean lower fuel bills.

The build so far

Beechwood has been in development since 2006.

We are currently building the last phase of this established development and there are a limited number of plots remaining. Visit us to find your new home.

The finished site will comprise 169 homes and the build is currently due to be completed during 2013.

Beechwood is a great development. I've been in new build home sales for a few years now and I previously worked for local estate agents. I love my job - especially meeting so many different people and selling them their perfect home.

Having worked at Beechwood since the start of the site it's now my baby. The site team are really close and we aim to please all our customers with a quality new home.

If you need it, we can provide you with a list of fully independent solicitors. Offering fast, effective service at competitive rates, the firms we recommend have handled thousands of transactions for Barratt and are familiar with the entire process – meaning less hassle for you.

Furnishings

So your investment property is ready as soon as possible, we offer a range of furniture packs, created to suit homes of all sizes. We work with top interior designers, and because of our considerable purchasing power, we can pass on some great savings. You just select what you want, then relax - leaving the installation to our experienced professionals.

Quality

Our homes appeal to potential tenants, not just because they look great, but also because we design them to be energy efficient and low maintenance to live in. Our homes have won some of the industry’s most coveted awards for design and quality, and we’re the only major national housebuilder ever to be awarded a 5 Star Housebuilder Award by the Homebuilders Federation.

Great locations
