We’ve been building quality new build homes since 1958, and are now recognised as the highest quality national house builder.
We established the first Barratt property development company in Newcastle upon Tyne and grew the business steadily, laying the foundation for the growth that followed. We were listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1968.
In 1972, a programme of rapid expansion followed, seeing a series of acquisitions and the creation of new companies.
During the 1990s the Barratt Group grew organically, establishing an unrivalled track record of consistent growth. In April 2007, Barratt acquired Wilson Bowden PLC and today has a network of 27 housebuilding divisions throughout Britain, selling new build homes under the Barratt and David Wilson brands.
Award-winning new homes
We aim to provide the highest standard of design, construction and customer service in the business, resulting in a host of major industry awards in recent years.
