St. Gregory’s Place ‘A Wonderful place to live’

“I wish we could have moved here 20 years ago..!”

A lovely comment from John Bird who, with his wife Sonja, moved into a brand new house at our St Gregory’s development in Sudbury in the summer of 2018.

It’s not unusual for clients to love their new PJ Livesey homes but at 85 and 80 years old the Birds prove it is never too late to move.

John said: “We have done the opposite of most people our age – we moved from a bungalow to a three-storey house and it’s the best thing we have ever done.

“We are so pleased to have our house, we love it.

“We knew we wanted to be here as soon as we visited and saw the setting and now we have moor hens and swans and ducks on the Water Meadows and I can see squirrels doing acrobats in the trees in the garden.

“It is a wonderful place to live. I stepped out last night and walked round to the original old buildings and the main gateway where the lights were on. It was misty and very atmospheric and felt so peaceful and still.

“I am a big reader and can walk into town to the library and get whatever we need from the shops and we often go to the Old Mill Hotel just next door to eat.”

The Bird’s son lives close by but they have also made good friends with their new neighbours and enjoy the ‘community’ feel of St Gregory’s.

John said: “My next door neighbour puts our dustbins out for us – no-one has ever done that for us before – and the other night we all went for a chat and something to eat at the Inn.

“I grew up in an orphanage, not knowing my brother and sister till we were older, so to have people around you who care is just lovely.

“We are so very happy here.”

Our Lancaster Story

 A new film has just been released showing the city of Lancaster and the surrounding North West countryside in all its fabulous glory.

Our Lancaster Story: City, hub & heartland was commissioned by the City Council to tell the city’s story but also where and how Lancaster can grow and develop in the future. Crossed by canals and the River Lune, it is a city region like no other, situated between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty within minutes of both spectacular coastline and stunning countryside. Lancaster is a place of quality, scale and magnitude with historic buildings and significant landmarks sitting alongside two modern and aspiring universities – Lancaster and Cumbria. The four-minute film, produced by Manchester based Paper Film has already had more than 8,000 views. You can watch it here; Our Lancaster Story >

If you are inspired to be part of the story we have family homes and spacious apartments for sale at Moor Park: REGISTER YOUR INTEREST >

New Year, New Home!

New Year, New Home!

Sellers have two weeks to get their house in order if they want to take advantage of the New Year peak in online property searches.

Prepping your house now and getting good photography done before the tinsel and Christmas decorations go up could be the difference between bagging a buyer early in 2019 or having to wait until spring. And sellers who are pro-active have more chance of getting their dream home at developments like St Gregory’s in Sudbury where there are just a handful of properties left for sale. Rob Chapman is New Homes partner for William H. Brown the national agency that is acting alongside the developer PJ Livesey at St Gregory’s. He said: “Buyers like something individual and St Gregory’s is unique. You will never be able to replicate this development, and that individuality and the quality of the craftsmanship in the build makes for a good long-term investment. “It has understandably been very popular with only three houses and five apartments left for sale and when they are gone they are gone – there will not be another St Gregory’s. “ And he advised anyone looking to move early in 2019 to try and think about the move before enjoying the Christmas break. He said: “Sellers can be reluctant to put their property on the market in December but it’s important to plan now for the New Year. Right now people are busy with parties and seeing family and friends and preparing for Christmas and they don’t have time to look at houses on the internet – it is all about Amazon and Ocado! “But in January the traffic goes through the roof and is often the best sales month by far. So we would advise sellers to speak to us now, get everything in order and ready to go to hit the market at the most active time of the year. “As a national agency we analyse data and see trends from across the country and use that knowledge to inform sellers as realistically and honestly as possible. We don’t price property to buy the business and give sellers false hope – that just blocks the market. “And we don’t want that, we want 2019 to be the year you moved!” Gavin Pearce, Group Sales manager with PJ Livesey said: “St Gregory’s is in an idyllic position and would be a lovely place to start the New Year! But we have just five apartments left for sale, converted from the original Walnuttree Hospital buildings, and three new build houses so advise people to get in touch with us and visit site to get their plans in place.”
