Chapel Gate is a sustainable, new residential community of 600 homes located in the heart of Basingstoke, Hampshire, by VIVID Housing and Barratt Homes. Together, the partners have transformed a disused, run down industrial estate into much needed housing, including the refurbishment of a cherished local Art Deco landmark building. From one bedroom apartments to four bedroom family homes, the diverse range of high-quality contemporary new homes at Chapel Gate, combined with affordable price tags, purchasing options and appealing town centre location, mean it is selling fast. Each home has been designed to be flexible and suit every lifestyle, with open-plan living and plentiful outdoor space. With pedestrian and cycle routes into the town centre from the development, generous open space including a central park and play facilities, Barratt and VIVID have created an urban paradise for residents to enjoy at Chapel Gate.
