North Stoneham Park is steeped in a rich history that has seen it transformed from a Saxon estate in the Middle Ages to the dynastic seat of Willis Fleming family who built North Stoneham House, a magnificent mansion set in the grounds of the vast deer park and parklands in the sixteenth century.
Today, this ancient parkland is being brought back to life in the form of a delightful leafy setting with a vibrant new community that will provide beautiful new homes for Southampton along with great sporting and leisure facilities, a school, nursery, office building and retail centre. All this will be set among lush green open spaces for everyone to enjoy.
Today, both the deer that roam the woodland and the Park’s historic charm remain as captivating as ever as we’re bringing this remarkable country estate back to life.
Its landscape comprises some 120 acres set on the outskirts of Eastleigh and boasts some of the most picturesque grounds on the south coast. Thanks to a multi-award-winning design scheme and stunning green infrastructure, the Park’s ecologically sensitive habitats and historic areas will be enhanced and remain protected for everyone to enjoy. A series of meandering footpaths will cross the Park and provide long, leafy walks that take in the picturesque ponds, swales and hollows that give more than a glimpse of the rich ecology within this area.
North Stoneham Park is a fabulous location – it’s set within walking distance of Eastleigh’s town centre and has superb transport links for every commute. Everything you need is, quite literally, right on your doorstep.
The Park’s new homes sit within an area bordered by Chestnut Avenue, Stoneham Lane and Home Wood and provide easy connections for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. The landscaped grounds link all areas of the Park, including its beautiful open spaces and historic areas, by defined footpaths that also give easy access to the adjacent Lakeside Country Park, the town’s retail centre and new sports grounds.
Close to Junction 5 of the M27 and the M3 road networks as well as Southampton International Airport and Southampton Parkway railway station, North Stoneham Park ensures travel to Southampton city centre, London, the south coast and beyond is within easy reach.
Step outside the Park and there’s an abundance of places to go and things to do. In addition to Eastleigh’s retail centre, shoppers will love the city’s vast West Quay mall and, just along the M27 to Portsmouth, Gunwharf Quays is a mecca for outlet shopping fans. For lovers of the great outdoors, Go Ape, the ultimate treetop adventure, is set within the nearby Itchen Valley Country Park. Closer still, a leisurely fishing experience awaits at the Park Ponds or the adjacent Lakeside Country Park.
The sports facilities at the Park are a big feature of life here. Stoneham Golf Club sits next to the Park and is one of the most respected golf clubs in the county and a wealth of other sports activities are also on your doorstep. An exciting new sports hub with new 3G football pitches and mini pitches sit just on the fringe of the park while archery, cricket, hockey, lawn bowls, football and rugby can be reached by foot, thanks largely to the fantastic new facilities at the Trojans Club we’re supporting.
All local amenities, including the shops and facilities at the Park’s local centre, the nearby Concorde Club, Southampton Airport Parkway railway station and Southampton International airport, are just a short walk along the picturesque footpaths and cycleways that traverse North Stoneham and Lakeside Country Park. Everything you need is so close by…
In the eighteenth century, the Park estate was one of the most enduring landscapes ever created by the renowned Capability Brown. The landscape artist made his mark on vast country mansions with elegant gardens, parklands, woodlands, lakes and serpentine rivers that flowed seamlessly to create enchanting grounds that he emulated at North Stoneham.
Today, we’re proud to be breathing new life into this extraordinary country estate and providing homes and futures for new generations of homeowners.
“North Stoneham Park represents everything that Highwood stands for – we’re building beautiful homes sensitively, sustainably and with respect to this beautiful environment. But, most importantly, we’re creating a special community that will serve the needs of its residents for decades to come.”
