Local agents Fox & Sons are soon to launch The Ordnance Yard, a unique collection of coastal homes at historic Priddys Hard in Gosport, Hampshire.

Once the site of the Royal Navy’s armaments production, The Ordnance Yard will now become a development of nine contemporary homes designed by award winning John Pardey Architects and set within Grade II original ‘blast walls’.
Developer Elite Homes will breathe new life into these historic structures with the creation of ultra-modern houses that overlook Forton Lake towards Royal Clarence Marina, the Historic Dockyards and the Spinnaker Tower.
This selection of contemporary homes include six set within the bays of the blast walls, over three levels and with balconies enjoying direct water view and designed to ‘float’ within the bays; two further two storey properties hover at the water’s edge – also with balconies but with the addition of private waterside gardens; plus, ‘The Gatehouse’, a more traditional, three storey family home that enjoys a large garden as well as a balcony offering superb views.

All properties are ultra-modern with a quality specification throughout and design features include grey profiled metal cladding to exteriors to hint at the site’s historic naval setting and to create a unique environment.
David Craddock, director at developers Elite Homes says:  ‘The Ordnance Yard sits within the historic Priddy’s Hard Conservation area.  Nestling against a Scheduled Ancient Monument, these nine stunning contemporary houses seemingly ‘float’ between and beside the Grade II listed traverse walls.  We are creating a totally unique development that is unrivalled across the whole of the south coast of England.’
Helen Asteris, New Homes Partner at Fox & Sons, says: ‘We are thrilled to soon launch this superb collection of contemporary homes to market where buyers will be able to own a piece of history.
All properties are designed to maximise the unique aspects of this historic location with high specification throughout, and each enjoys stunning views. ‘

  • A show home will be available to give buyers a first glimpse from June.
  • Prices for homes at The Ordnance Yard are due to be released soon.
