The name of a new development in Stamford Bridge has been inspired by the village’s royal connections.

Sovereign Court, designed by Ortus Homes to appeal exclusively to those over 60, is a tribute to the monarchs who have frequented the area.

The name commemorates the many royal figures that have left their mark on Stamford Bridge.

From King Harold Godwinson, the last Saxon King of England, to the Nordic King Harald Hardraada of Norway who famously perished in the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066, Stamford Bridge is known for its royal history and it is hoped that Sovereign Court will serve as a timely reminder of this and the village’s unique heritage.

The first phase of the new development will be released for sale this summer, with first homeowners expected to move in early next year.

The 24 luxury apartments are already attracting a high level of interest. So much so, that potential purchasers in the area are urged to register their interest now.

Liz Green Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Ortus Homes, said: “We are so pleased to be able to name Sovereign Court to reflect the rich history of the area.

“Sovereign Court offers such a high quality of age exclusive apartments, that its homeowners deserve the royal treatment.

“We aim to offer high quality, spacious and desirable homes for those aged 60 and over. Sovereign Court will provide homeowners exactly this, in a highly desirable location.”
