About Westerman Homes

Founded in the 1930s by Walter Westerman, Westerman Homes has long been established in the area as a provider of quality homes.

Currently run by the third generation, the company provide a wide variety of modern and traditional properties, whilst still retaining the standards and values that are consistent with the Westerman name.

Whether you are thinking of purchasing a 1 bed property, a 5-bedroom family home or something in between, each receives the same commitment to build, attention to detail and quality.

Building on these foundations set by Walter Westerman has enabled the company to provide homes to the local and surrounding areas for over 85 years.

The History Of Westerman Homes

Walter Westerman completed his apprenticeship as a carpenter joiner having worked on various local sites including a housing development on Bramcote Avenue, Chilwell, for Glossop of Codnor, the building contractor. In January 1933 Walter started work on his own, from his parents house at 98, Park Road, Chilwell, making window frames and carrying out general repair work, which included the Club House opposite School Lane, Chilwell. Walter, as with other tradesmen of his era, pushed a handcart along the footpaths through Bramcote to Stapleford to collect his timber supplies. To carry materials and tools generally most tradesmen used handcarts, but soon Walter purchased a motorcycle and sidecar as his means of transportation.
