About this property

  • Nestled within the historic landscape of Priddy's Hard, Canary Yard and Cordite Way stand as the culmination of a transformative journey, marking the final phase of redevelopment for the former Ordnance yard. Dating back to the late eighteenth century, this area's significance emerged from the need to relocate gunpowder away from central Portsmouth, recognising the potential hazards it posed. Thus began a storied history of industry and innovation, overseen by the Board of Ordnance and evolving alongside advancements in munitions technology.

    Despite the passage of time and the gradual erosion of much of the original site, resilient structures and landmarks endure, standing as enduring testaments to its heritage. Among these relics are the Shell Filling Rooms, sheltered within Grade 2 listed blast walls, which have found new purpose in the form of traverse-style detached homes. Seamlessly integrated between these formidable structures, these homes symbolise the transition of the site from a Royal Ordnance Yard to a contemporary residential enclave.

    As Canary Yard and Cordite Way near completion, they represent the final touch in the rejuvenation of this unique development. These homes epitomise sustainability, boasting low carbon footprints and energy-efficient designs tailored for the demands of the twenty-first century. With cutting-edge features and a commitment to environmental responsibility, this development not only honours the rich legacy of Priddy's Hard but also paves the way for a vibrant, modern community rooted in the echoes of its past

A truly unique opportunity to own property within the grounds of this scheduled historic monument, offering a unique living experience, combining modern comforts with a rich cultural and historical backdrop. Being the first non-Armed Forces personnel to do so since 1750 adds an extra layer of exclusivity and historical significance to the opportunity.
