Discover your sanctuary by the sea.
A luxury waterfront residential and retirement village set in 62 acres of mature parkland on the beautiful South Hampshire Coast. With its classical Georgian architecture, glorious seafront views, exclusive amenities, and illustrious military history, Royal Haslar is the perfect choice for your forever home.
Illustrious military heritage
The site was formerly home to a prominent naval hospital, built in the mid-1700s to care for sailors of the Fleet. On completion in 1762, it was the largest brick building in Europe. The hospital established the country’s very first blood bank, treating casualties from the Normandy landings.
Haslar continued to play an important part throughout the many wars of the twentieth century. During and after D-Day, both Allied and enemy Troops were treated at Haslar in great numbers, and Royal Navy surgeons were joined by US Army surgeons in treating the wounded.
The hospital joined partnership with Portsmouth Hospitals National Health Service Trust in 2001 and the Grade II listed site began redevelopment by Haslar Developments Limited to create a unique luxury residential and retirement village.
Preserved period architecture
Royal Haslar’s prestigious and splendidly preserved historic Georgian buildings have stood the test of time. Originally designed by Theodore Jacobson, they are a monument to classical design and traditional workmanship. Royal Haslar’s restoration offers a unique opportunity to live in modern comfort amongst these elegant buildings, a daily reminder of Britain’s distinguished past.
Luxury apartment living
As well as boasting glorious sea views, residents will enjoy light and airy rooms with large windows, elegant high spec designer kitchens, and smart technology.
Stunning waterfront location
You can relax and watch the world go by as the development offers panoramic views across the busy Solent towards the Isle of Wight. And with 17 miles of waterfront including beaches and marinas, you will be able to enjoy wonderful walks without even leaving the property.
Designed with an active lifestyle in mind, Royal Haslar is located within easy reach of many other off-site leisure facilities including golf clubs, sailing clubs, bowling greens as well as shopping facilities in nearby Alverstoke, and Gosport.
Sense of community
Creating a sense of community is what makes Royal Haslar so special. This is phase one of a larger development which will include the creation of communal facilities including a leisure complex with gym, swimming pool and Romanesque thermal spa, medical centres, as well as cafes, restaurants, a library, and various other community spaces all set within beautifully landscaped grounds.
At Royal Haslar, you can enjoy your independence alongside the added security of knowing you will have access to the best care. We offer a whole range of care options, including on-call health and tele-healthcare technology support, as well as on-site security and maintenance staff, so you can fully relax and enjoy your retirement.
Historical fact: Our caring approach is particularly fitting as Royal Haslar was originally purposely built to provide care for sailors. Many famous men and women have served at Haslar and one, Dr James Lind, the ‘father of nautical medicine’ and a leading physician who worked at the hospital in the mid-1700s, played a major part in discovering a cure for scurvy.
