There are very few occasions when you get the opportunity to own a truly unique part of British history, this Grade II listed Residence is a stunning example of grand regency living set in 65 acres of heritage conservation grounds. The grounds were commissioned by King George II and designed by Theodore Jacobsen. Since it was constructed the house has been home to and visited by a who's who of British history. James Lind himself was a Scottish doctor, he was a pioneer of naval hygiene in the Royal Navy. By conducting one of the first ever clinical trials, he developed the theory that citrus fruits cured scurvy. Lind argued for the health benefits of better ventilation aboard naval ships, the improved cleanliness of sailors' bodies, clothing and bedding, and below-deck fumigation with sulphur and arsenic. He also proposed that fresh water could be obtained by distilling sea water. His work advanced the practice of preventive medicine and improved nutrition. In 1758 he was appointed chief physician of the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar.

The Royal Haslar site will be developed over the next five years and will become one of the leading developments on the south coast.
James Lind Avenue is a premier residence on the site. The grounds are protected under conservation status and the land will remain landscaped to reflect the original layout of the hospital grounds.
