Local businesses have been given an early opportunity to see the new David Wilson Homes development - One Eight Zero ahead of its official launch.
Industry professionals were given a taste of the lifestyle on offer enjoying gin and tonic sundowners on the terrace of the showhome.
To mark the occasion David Wilson homes commissioned local boutique gin distillery, Conker Spirit to come up with a bespoke cocktail for the evening.
The One Eight Zero cocktail is an apple-based gin liquor mixed with tonic and created by Rupert Holloway owner of Conker Spirit.
Rupert said: ‘It’s great for Conker Spirit to be a part of this beautiful development.
The emphasis on quality is in keeping with our brand and we were delighted to be involved.’
The five-star housebuilder hosted the event at Bedhampton Hill to showcase the new development which offers luxury homes with panoramic views over Langstone Harbour.
David Wilson Homes sales director Michelle Storer said everyone had been impressed with the bespoke design, the quality and the 180 degree views over the harbour.
‘We thought it would be a good idea to host a get-together for the local business community at One Eight Zero and we were delighted with the feedback from guests,’ she said.
‘We value the importance of a good working relationship with the local business community, particularly solicitors, estate agents and letting agents.’’
Guests included councillor David Guest from Havant Borough Council who said he was impressed with the quality of the showhome and development as it takes shape.
‘I’m very happy with the development which is a great addition to the area. It is in a good location with excellent road access and you are next to an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Farlington Marshes, which is perfect for walks into the harbour.’
Just 46 four and five-bedroom homes are being built at One Eight Zero with houses built to the highest specification and designed to offer uncompromised style and design.
