On the border of open countryside, Whetstone Park is a collection of traditionally designed starter and family homes, forming part of an established community on the southern edge of Leicestershire village Whetstone.

It is the ideal place to enjoy family life, with plenty of open space incorporating winding footpaths and clusters of trees, perfect for evening strolls.

We are delighted to announce Gary Tebbatt has scooped an award at the recent NHBC Pride in the Job Awards, to become an Elite Site Manager for large housebuilders. It clearly shows Gary's commitment to quality in building our outstanding new homes, places we hope you'll be proud to call home.

About Developer

About David Wilson Homes

David Wilson Homes is not just a housing developer, we're a company that builds homes. At every stage of the process; from designing and planning to the final finishing touches, we keep in mind the emotional and practical priorities of the people who will be living in our properties.

This customer-centric approach has been at the root of our success for over forty years. We began in a small village in Leicester and today are recognised as one of the country's leading house builders, operating in thirteen regions, from Scotland to Wales and down to the South East of England. All our regions are supported by an extensive customer service team to guide buyers through what, in most cases, is the biggest financial commitment they will ever make.
As part of the Wilson Bowden Group, we established our reputation through the building of large executive properties but today our uncompromising pursuit of excellence extends into a wider portfolio of homes including apartments and townhouses.

At the heart of our company lies the Wilson Way, an attitude which demands all our people, whether they be land buyers, site managers or marketing staff, deliver their very best at all stages of the business. We believe detail is everything and consequently our team takes time to source materials of the highest standard to fashion homes of unparalleled quality.

The David Wilson Difference

David Wilson Homes offers buyers a 2 year warranty, covering almost everything we fit as standard meaning there’ll be no unexpected bills for the first 2 years. Our 2 year warranty is in addition to the 10 year NHBC warranty offered as standard.

Another reason for choosing a David Wilson home is the top quality customer service which we provide to all of our customers. We have been awarded the House Builder Federation’s 5 star status for the last four years, meaning that over 90% of our customers would recommend us.
