We are a finalist in two categories at the South Coast Property Awards, run by The Business Magazine. Bargate Homes is shortlisted for Housebuilder of the Year for the second year running, along with Residential Development of the Year for our £97m Heritage Place scheme, located on the outskirts of Eastleigh, Hampshire.   

The prestigious regional awards have a total of 15 categories judged by industry experts, recognising excellence across the property sector. The South Coast Property Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 6th June, at the Hilton Ageas Bowl, Southampton, and will be hosted by stand-up comedian Simon Evans. Sponsoring the event this year is Aecom, Amiri, Blake Morgan, Cobweb, Esc, Eddisons, Goadsby, Gracelands Ltd, Lester Aldridge, LGCS Fitout, MSP Capital, SHW, and South Coast CPS.

Mark White, Managing Director of Bargate Homes, said: “We are very pleased to be a finalist for two South Coast Property Award categories this year, as the housebuilding innovation and competition across this region is so strong. We are looking forward to spending the evening of the awards ceremony alongside peers and valued suppliers to celebrate the best of the best.

“Our housebuilder of the year entry was based on our recently completed 2023/4 financial year, which saw in excess of 200 new Bargate homes handed over to our customers. This was a record for us, but we are on track to almost double that performance, with 1,500 home completions in our sights over the next four years. These proposed new Bargate developments are set to have a meaningful impact on the market, deliver impressive biodiversity gains, and enable local people to move into a quality, energy-efficient modern home.”

We recently received the 2024 Outstanding Achievement Award for Customer Satisfaction from In-House Research, together with an overall Gold Award. The collated research revealed that Bargate achieved one of the highest overall satisfaction scores across all metrics, with a Net Promoter Score of 85.2, and a ‘would you recommend to a friend or family’ score of 96%.

It is the sixth year running that we have triumphed in the prestigious national award programme. The annual awards for the UK’s housebuilding industry are announced each spring and reflect customer feedback scores received throughout the previous calendar year – 2023 – via an independent telephone survey. In presenting Bargate Homes with the two top accolades, In-House Research commended the company for its unwavering commitment to excellence and dedication to ensuring customer satisfaction.

Established in 2006, Bargate Homes builds select developments in prime locations across Hampshire, Dorset, and West Sussex. Our team is set to deliver over 300 homes during the 2024/5 financial year across six live developments and we have a pipeline of future sites expected to deliver in excess of 2,500 new homes. Our SCPA Housebuilder of the Year entry highlighted Heritage Place at North Stoneham Park, Rivercross in Warsash, St Thomas’ Mead in Bedhampton, and Hamblewood in Hedge End.

Over 100 residents have already moved into newly completed family homes at Heritage Place, which is positioned within the 120-acre (48.6 Ha) North Stoneham Park neighbourhood. Heritage Place is the final phase of the wider development which features a total of 1,000 homes. Built on a former deer park on the outskirts of Eastleigh, Southampton, our £97m scheme is delivering 322 energy-efficient family homes, surrounded by new public open spaces.

There are three show homes to view at our 34-acre Rivercross scheme in the Hampshire coastal village of Warsash, illustrating different house designs. The £128m development is creating a total of 352 eco-focused homes, situated at the mouth of the River Hamble, less than a mile from the world-famous Warsash Maritime Academy.

The final few homes are available for sale at the £32m Hamblewood development, located in the well-connected Hampshire town of Hedge End. A collection of our 123 family houses and apartments are ready to move into. 

In 2023, we also opened the doors to the now sold out £18.2m St Thomas’ Mead development, located in the scenic suburb of Old Bedhampton, Hampshire, which is close to Langstone Harbour.
