Housing developer Bargate Homes has sold half of the 322 new homes at its Heritage Place site in Stoneham.

Located off Hopper Road and built on a former deer park, the Heritage Place development comprises a collection of 322 detached and semi-detached houses.

Bargate Homes’ scheme is the final phase of the wider North Stoneham development, which will feature a total of 1,000 homes.

With 19 homes now occupied, and 47 per cent of the site reserved, Bargate Homes say the remaining properties are getting snapped up off-plan by local buyers.

Consisting of three, four, and five-bedroom houses – each with a garage – prices range from £485,000 to £720,000.

Mark White, Managing Director of Bargate Homes, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed new residents to Heritage Place during 2023, with many more moving here in the coming months in 2024.

“There has been a huge amount of interest in this site, due to the convenience of this location, the quality of the homes, energy efficiency, and lifestyle benefits, such as new pathways, lakes, and the on-site primary school.

“We are proud to be delivering the final part of the jigsaw for this exceptional new North Stoneham Park community.”

Kirsty Balicao, a Heritage Place resident, said: “We were delighted when our son Christian was offered a place at Stoneham Park Academy.

“He was part of the first intake of pupils, nearly three years ago. The two-mile journey from our previous home in Southampton was fraught with traffic, so when we saw Bargate’s plans for Heritage Place, we felt this could be a great opportunity to upgrade from our three-bedroom 1920s house, which had a layout that didn’t suit our family needs.”

She added: “When we first moved in, we were really pleased with how low our estimated energy bills were, and having an EV car charging point already installed is a big win.

“Living in a really efficient, low energy home was a big reason for moving here, and we’re all so pleased we did.”

Established in 2006, Bargate Homes builds select developments in prime locations within Hampshire, Dorset, and West Sussex.

The company is currently delivering 900 homes across six ongoing developments and has a list of future sites expected to deliver more than 2,500 new homes.
