We have launched the first homes for sale in the original Grade II listed Tapton Court

Built for one of Sheffield’s original steel magnates is was one of several ‘brass castles’ built in the city’s exclusive district of Ranmoor in the 19th century.

It once hosted Royalty and over more recent years has been home to hundreds of nurses and students.

We are now working alongside a team of crafts people to bring the magnificent building with its distinctive square turret and sweeping stone entrance steps, back to life.

It is being converted into 14 grand apartments, each one unique, with individual heritage features complemented by the highest building design standards.

PJ Livesey Group Sales Manager, Gavin Pearce said: “It is wonderful to see the building being brought back to life and appreciate its original grandeur and scale. The history of the building is fascinating and King Edward VII is said to have stayed when he was Prince Regent.

“Each of the properties in the building will be unique but accessed through the original hallway and staircase and each will have its own private outdoor space. It will be a very special place to live, in a really stunning location.”

The ultimate apartment spans the entire front two bays of the mansion and will be accessed up the stone steps and through the original front door. It will cover two floors offering spacious, flexible living looking out over the expansive front lawns.

The first homes to be released will be three, one bedroom ground floor apartments with private terrace / garden space which each come with two allocated parking spaces.

Gavin added: “With only 2 apartment remaining for sale in the neighbouring East Court we have released the first one bedroom properties in West Court and know they will be incredibly popular.

“They offer an opportunity, be you a first-time buyer or a down sizer looking for the ultimate lock up and leave, to purchase a unique home. This is a truly special development in a wonderful location convenient not just for the city of Sheffield but for the wonderful countryside and towns of the Peak District.”

The first properties in West Court will be completed by summer 2023.
