Barratt’s exciting new Hollybrook Lodge development welcomes its very first residents with completions on seven properties in one week.

First in have been Southampton couple, Hugh and Carmel Murray who have taken ownership of their brand new apartment. The two are celebrating their move after living for many years in their previous home, just around the corner.

“For some time we have been leisurely looking at property options but couldn’t find anything that felt right. Then we noticed Hollybrook Lodge start to take shape,” said Hugh. “On its official open day we decided to take a closer look and explore. We were completely overwhelmed with what we saw. The decor, the finish and of course the location were all perfect.

“And the Barratt sales team was absolutely superb, providing us with all the information and support we needed.”

Hollybrook Lodge offers an impressive selection of one and two bedroom apartments, priced from £139,999, just a stone’s throw away from the city centre and all local amenities. It is also very close to the Southampton General and Princess Anne hospitals.

“We couldn’t resist putting down a deposit to secure our new apartment. It was a huge decision, but we didn’t hesitate because Hollybrook Lodge is ideal for us,” added Hugh.

“Carmel works just across the road at the hospital so there is absolutely no commute to work for her. And we travel a lot and love the convenience and added security of a new apartment.

“I feel sure we will have many very happy years here at Hollybrook Lodge.”

Southampton itself offers an array of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues – including Ikea, West Quay, the Mayflower Theatre and Leisure World.

There is also easy access to the M27 and M3 motorways – with links to Portsmouth, Bournemouth and London.
