Building homes, communities and futures since 1987

Case Study: Royal Court, Netley, Southampton

In 2013, we were granted planning consent for this, one of our most prestigious developments to date. Royal Court was a stunning project comprising nine, one and two-bedroom luxury retirement apartments and a 65-bedroom care home. The grounds of a former special needs school, the site had been the subject of much speculation since 2011.

Our planning application proposed a complete refurbishment of the main house and the development of a new care home, which would enhance the existing building and its delightful coastal environment. The application for the overall scheme was met with approval and support from Southampton City Council who saw the value in providing much-needed accommodation for residents looking for dedicated, stylish retirement living and high quality nursing care when required.

Set close to the shores of one of the south coast’s premier sailing waters and within the beautiful Netley Abbey Conservation Area, Royal Court was a considered scheme that put luxury, security and impeccable care facilities for its residents first. 

The nine apartments were constructed under the banner of Hartwood Residential - the partnership between Highwood Group, our financial partner, Cinnamon Care Capital and one of the South of England’s leading care provider, Hartford Care. The new homes featured concierge services, luxurious specifications, private landscaped gardens and stunning views across Southampton Water.

In the summer of 2015, following two grand launches, this exclusive waterside retirement development opened its doors to its first residents and interest in the remarkable new care home that’s run by Hartford Care demonstrated exactly how successful the Royal Court project had been.
