Posted 2 February 2022 by Keith Osborne

There are brand new homes with excellent gardens for sale at Barratt Developments schemes across the region...

Excellent private outside space has become a greater priority for homebuyers over the last couple of years as they see the benefits of having somewhere to enjoy the weather, entertain guests or become a successful gardener – and Barratt Developments current has homes with great gardens at plots across the North East.

Barratt Developments – a former WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year – has developments of new homes in County Durham, Tyne and Wear, and Northumberland under its Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands. Between them, they offer an impressive range of house types that will please everyone from those buying their first home to families looking for more space, and homeowners downsizing to a more manageable, low-maintenance brand new home.

We seek out a few of the most exceptional plots which offer appealing gardens with which to make the most of your private outdoor space.
