The award-winning team behind one of David Wilson Homes’ Northamptonshire developments has lifted the lid on what makes their site The Avenue so successful with homebuyers in the area.

Located on The Avenue in Overstone, the development hosts a total of 40 employees, ensuring 5,000 bricks are laid and 80 cups of tea are brewed each day for the workers.


Not only have the homes been recognised for quality locally by homebuyers, but Site Manager Barry Farrar was recently given a Pride in the Job Quality Award in 2018 by the NHBC (National House Building Council) for his work on site.


Barry said:

“As a team, we take a great amount of pride in the high levels of quality and service we deliver for our customers across the site and we’re proud to be building new homes in Overstone.


“The homes are thoughtfully designed with modern living and energy efficiency in mind, and a variety of house types that appeal to a range of different homeowners.

“We’ve had fantastic feedback from our customers here and always look forward to welcoming new residents into their dream homes.”


David Wilson Homes’ parent company, Barratt Developments, has been awarded a maximum five star rating for the ninth consecutive year in the 2018 Home Builders Federation Customer Satisfaction Survey. They are the only major national housebuilder to have achieved the maximum five star rating for nine successive years.


Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said:

“Our development The Avenue launched over a year ago and has been extremely popular with a range of buyers ever since.


“Our award-winning service doesn’t end once the homes have been built. We offer a number of schemes to assist homebuyers in getting on or progressing on the property ladder, including Help to Buy, Part Exchange or Movemaker.


“We’re delighted with the beautiful homes and developments we continue to build each year and it’s even more rewarding to know the customers are just as pleased with the properties.”


The Avenue is positioned on the outskirts of Overstone, adjacent to the popular village of Moulton, ensuring homebuyers benefit from a close-knit sense of community in addition to easy access to the surrounding towns and cities.


Residents will be just a short distance away from the town of Northampton, offering an array of entertainment facilities for the evenings and weekends.


Working professionals can benefit from the nearby M1 and A43, as well as Northampton train station which provides valuable connections to London Euston and Birmingham New Street.


An excellent choice of schooling options in close proximity is fantastic news for growing families looking for the ideal place to settle down.
