Linden Homes Beautifully Restored Georgian Mansion Apartments Have Almost Sold Out
03 Jan 2012

There are now only two apartments left at Linden Homes’ beautiful Georgian 10-12 Rockstone Place in Southampton. The mansion block, on a quiet, tree-lined, stucco fronted avenue is one of the few survivors of the World War Two bomb raids.

Because of its rarity, Linden Homes has taken great pains to refurbish this lovely old building to create a really elegant development of just ten apartments. The reaction to these homes has been so positive since they were launched, that there are now only two remaining.

Rockstone Place itself is set within the Carlton Place conservation area at the southern tip of The Avenue and the buildings are grade II listed.
Both remaining apartments are duplexes – so they’re arranged over two floors – maximising the sense of space. One has three bedrooms and the other four. Both have long sash windows and generously proportioned rooms with high ceilings.

Number 1, 10-12 Rockstone Place is a three bedroom apartment with its own private front and rear entrances. It is laid out across the ground floor and the basement complete with a private paved courtyard. This home still has the original staircase and, as well as the beautiful sash windows, there is some original panelling, architrave and ornate coving. There is an ensuite bathroom and a family bathroom. Best of all is the large, spacious and graceful living room and kitchen – which with its high ceilings is a really striking feature of this home.

Number 3, 10-12 Rockstone Place is a four bedroom apartment which is also arranged over two floors. The layout is quirky and original: the light and airy living room is on the ground floor and three of the bedrooms are on the basement floor – where there is also access to a private, paved courtyard.  Like Number 1, there is an ensuite bathroom, a family bathroom and a kitchen with integrated appliances. The living room has large, original sash windows with deep sills. Access to Number 3 is via the secure, shared, elegant lobby.

Both of these Linden Homes’ apartments have parking spaces.
