Bargate Homes Launches £97m Final Phase of North Stoneham Park, Hampshire
Bargate Homes has launched the final phase of North Stoneham Park, where a new community of over 1,000 homes is being created on a former deer park on the outskirts of Eastleigh, Southampton. Bargate Homes’ £97m Heritage Place scheme will deliver 322 eco-focused family homes.
Bargate Homes has unveil Heritage Place – its largest scheme to date – with a completed street scene and two fully furnished show homes. The first homes will be ready to move into before the end of this year. A range of three-, four- and five-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes are available in the first release, with prices ranging from £485,000 to £715,000.
Bargate Homes is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vivid – Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes. 124 Heritage Place homes will be purpose-built for Vivid, for shared ownership and affordable rent. Vivid has been the recipient of the entire affordable housing provision at North Stoneham Park, where construction has been ongoing since 2018.
Mark White, Managing Director of Bargate Homes, said: “We are thrilled to unveil Heritage Place to the public for the first time. This £97m development has been in the planning and meticulous pre-construction stage for over two years, to ensure we deliver North Stoneham Park’s most eco-efficient homes, completing the final part of the jigsaw for this exceptional new community.
“Taking lessons learnt from previous phases, our family homes will feature garages, and there has been considerable design work regarding the elevation treatments and detailing. The 322 new Bargate Homes will enable local people to climb onto and up the property ladder, as well as attracting newcomers to this scenic, historic, and well-connected part of Hampshire. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the first residents to Heritage Place next month.”
Bargate Homes has worked alongside Eastleigh Borough Council and Winchester City Council’s Design Review Panel to ensure Heritage Place – which is located to the west of Avenue Park – fully complements the existing residential at North Stoneham Park. Close attention has also been paid to maximise linkages to the local centre, which opened to the public in May 2021 with a café, community hall and day nursery, and to Stoneham Park Primary Academy, which welcomed its first pupils in September 2020. Heritage Place has been designed by Fareham-based HGP Architects.
The new development is one mile from Eastleigh town centre and two miles from Southampton Airport and Eastleigh train station. There is a 77-minute regular service to London Waterloo. Trains to Southampton and Winchester take 11-minutes. The M3 and M23 are both close by, enabling fast travel across Hampshire and beyond. Beautiful waterside attractions and the New Forest Wildlife Park are within a 20-minute drive.
Bargate Homes has initially released six house designs, which all benefit from a garage, and have elevations in a variety of traditional red and buff brick. The Oak is a three-bedroom detached home, offering 1,126 sq ft, priced at £489,000, whereas The Belvedere is a three-bedroom semi-detached design, which provides 1,133 sq ft and is priced at £485,000. The Saxon is a four-bedroom detached home of 1,268 sq ft, priced at £545,000, while The Acres is a four-bedroom semi-detached home of 1,357 sq ft, priced at £550,000. The Lancelot and The Vista are both five-bedroom detached homes, each offering 1,714 sq ft, and priced at £705,000 and £715,000 respectively.
All homes at Heritage Place will be EPC-B Rated, ensuring future residents can significantly lower their carbon footprint and benefit from energy savings. The bespoke kitchens feature integrated Neff cooking appliances. Bathrooms benefit from contemporary white Roca sanitaryware, with Porcelanosa floor and wall tiles. Google Nest learning thermostats, electric vehicle car chargers, and fibre broadband, are all installed as standard.
The two, three-bedroom show homes at Heritage Place have been designed and fully furnished by Southampton-based The Garden Society. The show homes illustrate different interior themes, and both showcase how the garden can become an extension of the living space, using decked areas, landscaping, planting, and outdoor furniture.
