The Park

Steeped in a rich history

It’s all set among lush green open spaces for everyone to enjoy.

North Stoneham Park is steeped in a rich history that dates back to its roots as a Saxon estate in the Middle Ages. Later, in the sixteenth century, it became the seat of the Willis Fleming family who built North Stoneham House, a magnificent mansion in the grounds of the vast deer park and parklands. Two hundred years later, the grounds were redesigned by the renowned English landscape architect, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

Today, this ancient parkland is being brought back to life in the form of a vibrant new community that will provide not only new homes for Southampton, but also sporting and leisure facilities, a school, nursery, office building and retail centre, all set among lush green open spaces for everyone to enjoy.

The History

Breathing new life into this extraordinary estate

North Stoneham Park is steeped in a rich history that dates back to its roots as a Saxon estate in the Middle Ages.

A green infrastructure, ecologically sensitive habitats and historic areas will feature throughout the new development.

The land comprises some 120 acres positioned on the outskirts of Eastleigh and, thanks to a carefully considered design scheme, a green infrastructure, ecologically sensitive habitats and historic areas will remain protected and feature throughout the new development. This includes the ancient parkland avenue that sits at the centre of the site and will be enhanced for the benefit of everyone to enjoy.

The parkland

An exquisite deer park

The parkland at North Stoneham Park is as breathtaking and it is revered – its history as a deer park spans centuries, dating back as far as the Saxon age.

Fast-forward to the eighteenth century and the North Stoneham estate was to become one of the most enduring landscapes ever created by Capability Brown – the name behind England’s most distinctive estates. He made his mark on vast country mansions where he constructed elegant gardens, parklands, woodlands, lakes and serpentine rivers, which all flowed seamlessly to create enchanting grounds like those at North Stoneham.

Today, both the deer that roam the woodland and the Park’s historic charm remain as captivating as ever as this remarkable estate is bought back to life.

Occupying the site of a vast deer park set within walking distance of Eastleigh’s town centre, North Stoneham Park is perfectly situated with excellent transport links and local amenities, including a primary school, nursery, community centre, leisure, retail and sporting facilities – all set within the Park development.

These new homes in Eastleigh sit within an area bordered by Chestnut Avenue, Stoneham Lane and Home Wood and will provide easy connections for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians across the site and the wider area, including the adjacent Lakeside Country Park and the new sporting facilities and woodland park.

The landscaped grounds will provide links to all other areas of the Park, including its beautiful open spaces and historic areas, by defined footpaths that will also provide straightforward access to Eastleigh, its retail centre and sports grounds.

Stoneham Golf Club

An abundance of sporting activities

However, it is the sports facilities at North Stoneham Park that are key to the appeal of life here. Stoneham Golf Club sits next to the Park and is one of the most respected golf clubs in the county while a wealth of other sports activities are also right on your doorstep. An exciting new sports hub with brand new 3G football pitches, mini pitches and top-class grass pitches sit just on the fringe of the park while archery, cricket, hockey, lawn bowls, football and rugby are all easily accessible by foot, thanks largely to the fantastic new facilities at the Trojans Club that North Stoneham Park is supporting.

Transport links are also an exceptional feature; the North Stoneham Park housing development lies close to Junction 5 of the M27 and the M3 road networks as well as Southampton International Airport and Southampton Parkway railway station. For commuters and those looking to travel further afield, Southampton city centre, London, the south coast and the towns and cities beyond are all within convenient and easy reach.
