Highwood Mill is an extra care housing scheme embedded in the heart of a new 2,000 home intergenerational masterplan, located on the edge of the market town of Horsham. There are 105 high-quality apartments for people over 55 along with a communal hub for the whole community.

In addition to the ‘hub’, an on-site restaurant, hair and beauty salon, hobby room, activity room, restaurant, shop, bar and library help residents enjoy the benefits of communal living with a strong community ethos, combined with independent living.

The site is located adjacent to the river Adur where historically numerous watermills were located; a building form and scale that translates successfully to the four storey massing of the extra care building, celebrating the site’s history and providing a nostalgic conversation piece for residents and visitors.
