Our experienced senior management team are at the heart of our operations, visiting our developments to ensure they understand the needs of the area and local community. This ‘hands-on’ approach helps to ensure we are providing our customers with a home they will be delighted with, and which we can be proud of.

At Westerhill Homes we pride ourselves on our experience and expertise in developing and building new homes, the Kentish way. Most of our team and supply chain are local and, from our office junior to our MD, our ethos is always to provide each new customer with a new home they can be proud of and is something our team takes great pride in.

A house is for most people, their single biggest purchase and we take seriously the trust people place in us to deliver their new home. The quality of each finished home is something I take great personal pride in – every detail is designed with you, our customers, in mind. We’ve built our reputation on quality with honesty at its heart – it’s your home - our reputation.

Andrew Shankster MD, Westerhill Homes


Based in the village of Coxheath, and part of the award –winning Chartway Group, Westerhill Homes design and build new homes reflecting Kent heritage and the local vernacular, which influence key design points. Our homes blend with their surroundings and our attention to detail and quality of construction has seen the company grow exponentially in recent years whilst our core values remain in being proud of every home we hand over to our customers.

Westerhill Homes traditional designs include:

  • Barn ends
  • Peg tiling and weatherboard elevations
  • Brick colours chosen to reflect the local vernacular
  • Slate roofs in keeping with existing local materials
  • Car barns built with attractive timber details
  • Post and rail fencing

Whether its first time buyers or families we are committed to ensuring the designs of our homes are practical, energy efficient and stylish.


Our sister company Chartway Construction employs local people using local contractors and suppliers wherever possible, to build all our new homes. Our focus is on a workforce who believe in the product they are building and who are striving to meet the high expectations of our customers.


We strive to provide a specification that is generally above that offered by local competitors. We don’t offer a standard specification across all our developments, we carefully consider the target audience and locality and fit the specification accordingly to its needs and requirements.

  • Increased places in Primary & Secondary schools
  • Upgrades to local Doctors surgeries
  • Contributions to additional book stocks in local libraries
  • Youth equipment
  • Public open spaces including play areas/ playing fields
  • Adult Community Learning Services

We have selected a local charity to partner and have chosen to support The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance. Our workforce are committed to supporting fundraising events held by the Air Ambulance alongside our own events. For every Westerhill Homes completion, we are donating £100 to the charity to help them raise money to fund lifesaving equipment.
