Work has begun on our new development site, Portersbridge Mews, in Romsey – close to the heart of the historic town. The development comprises four new apartments and two high-end refurbished semi-detached houses, all with parking and outside space.
This is one of the visitors' comments after attending the launch: The show Units were fantastic, and probably some of the best I have seen in my career.
The whole team should be proud of the result.
