PORTSMOUTH SITE RECENTLY ACQUIRED

We are very proud to have been selected to bring forward proposals to redevelop a large hospital site in Portsmouth.

St James’ Hospital, close to the sea front at Southsea, consists of a number of handsome Grade 2 listed buildings set in 25 acres of parkland.

There is a well-loved cricket pitch and pavilion and a Grade 2 listed chapel that will be retained with options for community use.

The buildings are recently vacant after NHS services were relocated to new facilities in the city and we are now consulting with the local community on how they would like to see the site developed.

P J Livesey Director, James Woodmansee, said: “The St James’ Hospital site is a landmark for Portsmouth and one that demands a unique solution. We have the extensive knowledge and experience to do this and to do it well and will be working alongside the City Council and the city’s conservation team

“This is an opportunity to redefine residential development within Portsmouth, providing unrivalled new homes on a scale that can make a real difference to the mix available, making the best use of a brownfield site and securing a long-term future for a significant range of listed buildings.

“It is an opportunity not to be squandered and our uncompromising approach to quality and heritage will create an exemplar development the local community and the wider City will be proud of.”

The first Community Consultation Event is being held on Wednesday July 17th between 2.30pm and 7.30pm at Portsmouth and Southsea Cricket Club, Locksway Road, Portsmouth. PO4 8LD

Didsbury Arts Festival at Green Walk

Giving Art a New Home

As part of the Didsbury Arts Festival, Green Walk will feature as a Pop Up Art gallery to showcase the work of local artists. 

One of our gorgeous properties at Green Walk in Didsbury has been turned into a Pop Up Art gallery to showcase the work of local artists.

‘Giving Art a New Home’ is part of our sponsorship of the bi-annual Didsbury Arts Festival and we are proud to support this ambitious and inspiring ten-day festival of arts and culture which takes place in locations across the area.

We collaborated with Helena Hulova-Sharpe who runs the Everyman Art Gallery on Wilmslow Road and is Visual Arts Co-ordinator for the Festival.

Work includes abstract artwork by Suzanne Bethell, full of joy, movement and life; former architect, Kevin Pockock’s bold colourful statements and pieces by Patrick Cunningham which reflect the history of Manchester and development of the cotton industry.

Complementing the art work are sculptural pieces by Martin Hedges.

All the pieces are looking for a new permanent home – with prices ranging from £150 – £4,000.

The Green Walk gallery runs from June 27th – June 30th after which we encourage you to visit the Everyman Art Gallery where Green Walk residents can enjoy a special price as a Welcome to Didsbury.

We would love to see you there.

INSPIRED BY HISTORY

Taking inspiration from the past to build new properties for the future

We take pride in breathing new life back into Britain’s historic buildings. Although every building is different and challenging, the homes we create are totally unique, just like our buyers. The care that we take in designing buildings and marketing our properties is all worthwhile when we see our clients fall in love with their new home!

The East & West Courtyards at The Historic Quarter, Alderley Park have been complety transformed. Buildings that started out as barns servicing a Cheshire Manor House, were later used as offices and are now beautiful Cheshire Cottages nestled around central courtyards.

This followed with the release of the South Courtyard and a collection of properties that defy categorisation. Properties inspired by the past but designed for the future, not mews houses or town houses or villas but incorporating the most desirable characterises from those properties with the modern convenience of newly built homes.

The largest property in the South Courtyard has just been purchased.

Of the 14 homes released in the South Courtyard only 3 remain available for purchase with plot 33 being completed as a designer dressed show home. Walking into these properties is like being let in on a secret only few know about. You’re greeted by exceptional open spaces flooded with light that open onto gardens that blur into the surrounding parkland.

While writing this blog, plot 25 has just been reserved to a client who fell in love with the beautiful setting and design of the property.

To arrange a viewing and find out more about what makes the Historic Quarter a special place to live please contact the sales team.

Open House at The Cedars

One for the curious…  The P J Livesey Group is opening the doors of The Cedars at 825 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury!

Come and join P J Livesey for a one-off chance for the  public to take a look inside this historic Grade II listed house on Saturday April 6th.

Respected local historian Diana Leitch will be sharing stories of the property and describing how Didsbury would have been when the property was first built in 1857.

This is a unique opportunity ahead of work starting to convert the building into grand apartments. The house forms part of the redevelopment of the site into ‘825 Didsbury’, and is set to be the town’s most exclusive new address.

Places will be strictly limited due to space restrictions, and therefore will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You can find out more about the availability of spaces  here.

Work elsewhere on site is well underway with construction of new houses already up to first floor level. The conversion of the existing Parklands building into sleek modern apartments is also progressing fast.

To keep up to date with the latest sales information along with first phase release dates at 825 Didsbury please register your interest.

March, 2019

Green Walk, Didsbury. Apartments Officially Released 

The first apartments in Quantum House, the distinctive building now taking shape at our Green Walk scheme in Didsbury, have been released off-plan.

Demand in this south Manchester suburb continues to be strong and already half of these big, light filled properties have been reserved.

Which is not surprising as they offer a totally different feel for anyone looking for single level living that does not compromise on space and quality.

Just as importantly all the apartments have generous outside space, some with huge wrap around balconies which, even at the lowest level, overlook the central green area with its mature trees and open feel.

Group sales manager Gavin Pearce, said: “Green Walk is offering a different standard of housing in this ever-popular location and that includes the apartments in Quantum House – large living spaces, custom built kitchens, top specification appliances and large wrap around balconies.”

“Buyers appreciate this and even off-plan can see they offer something different, something that stands out from the crowd.”

The first apartments are due for completion this summer.

Prices in the first release of 17 properties start from £224,950.
