60 years of housebuilding excellence

Since Barratt began 60 years ago, we’ve built more than 450,000 quality homes for both first time buyers and people moving up the property ladder – and we’re delighted to now be recognised as the UK’s most recommended major national housebuilder. Whilst we’ve come a long way since 1958, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: our commitment to putting our customers at the heart of everything we do.

With 60 years of experience behind the Barratt Group, it’s no wonder we have been awarded Housebuilder of the Year time and time again. But we never take this for granted.  We’re committed to improving the quality of our homes year-on-year and continue to lead the way in our industry. With 60 years of expertise in every home we build, you can be sure that you’re in safe hands when you buy from us.

60 years of quality

We pride ourselves on creating quality homes that you’ll love to live in. To ensure that everything is built to last, our expert teams thoroughly check every detail at every stage of the process - from the foundations up.

We believe the most important thing we’ve built over the past 60 years is trust. Our 5 Star Customer Satisfaction rating means more than 90% of our homeowners are happy to recommend us – a rating we’ve been awarded for the past 8 years. This is more than any other major national housebuilder, so you can depend on our commitment to quality. 

60 years of creating great places to live

We build more than just homes; we create great places for people to enjoy living in for years to come. All our developments are designed to be safe and secure, as close as possible to everyday amenities and ideal locations for meeting, playing and socialising. We’re also committed to preserving the environment and planting green spaces.

In 2017, we not only retained over 617,000 trees and shrubs, we also created 403 hectares of green space for wildlife to inhabit (that’s nearly three times the size of Hyde Park, London). It’s all of this, and so much more, that makes our homes such desirable and enjoyable places to live. 

60 years of leading the way

With 60 years of experience, we don’t just know how to build great quality homes, we lead the way with our commitment to the environment too. Wildlife-friendly design and planting are at the heart of all our developments and since 2015 we’ve partnered with the RSPB to give wildlife a home across our developments.

We also go above and beyond with energy and water efficient features and fittings that significantly reduce your consumption and bills. So you can use less, but still enjoy life to the full; and when it comes to buying, we have a range of schemes to help you make your move and our recommended Solicitors and New Home Mortgage Advisers are on hand to make everything easier for you. 

60 years of design

We design our homes with free-flowing space and multi-purpose rooms that are adaptable to work, play and relax in. So no matter how your family likes to live, your new home is built around your lifestyle.

With 60 years of experience behind every decision we make, we put plenty of thought into the little details that make your new home a great place to live – from creating additional storage solutions to maximising the amount of natural light throughout, you’re sure to find the home that’s just right for you.
