Langstone Court is a luxury, gated community that incorporates 50 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments set close to the heart of historic Portsmouth on the south coast.
From the initial concept phase, this delightful landscaped setting and splendid, high specification accommodation offered a new generation of retirement living and remains Highwood Group’s flagship retirement project. With a focus on safety, security, comfort and peace of mind, we built everything that older homeowners valued in their retirement years into two residential blocks at Langstone Court.
This, our first venture into retirement development, enabled us to create a very detailed scope of works and to set a new standard in this demanding market sector. Indeed, this project became the first in Hampshire to incorporate a care home and retirement complex on the same site. Our construction of Hamilton House Care Home, a 60-bed care home, began in 2007 and was handed over to our development partner, Southern Cross, in 2008.
At Langstone Court, all 50 luxury retirement apartments have been sold and residents are enjoying stunning, high quality interiors with a range of outstanding essentials on site. The development includes 24-hour emergency assistance, hairdressing facilities, a small gymnasium and relaxing communal areas for entertaining family and friends along with guest accommodation for overnight stays. The views from the third floor terrace offer magnificent views towards the Solent and the site has enhanced the local environment with its beautiful landscaped setting that has incorporated the constraints of trees, which ran around the perimeter of the development.
