When the site of the former Elephant and Castle public house was marketed, considerable interest was shown, yet Highwood secured the acquisition of the Bursledon Road land unconditionally,
We commenced construction of 19 two and three-bedroom houses
and 25 one and two-bedroom apartments in 2005 and handed the scheme over to our
partner, Hyde Housing Association in 2006.
The scheme successfully incorporated a range of modern
construction methods and was combined with a high quality, traditional design
that reflects the setting in an already established residential area at one of
the popular gateways to Southampton City Centre.
