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.

The Residence York. Best House in Town

A duplex apartment in The Residence – our conversion of the former Terry’s Chocolate factory – has been voted the best apartment in York in the BBC’s Best House in Town series.

It was lovely to see the iconic Grade II listed building looking very fine on the small screen and to hear the comments of the judges as they opened cupboards, inspected bathrooms and cast a critical eye over the space.

You can watch the series here >

It is also a tribute to the interior design skills of owners Sarah and Glen who have created a sumptuous and sophisticated interior. The couple moved from a big house in the country with their seven-year-old son to the spacious duplex and say life is now “just easier”!

Asked what they liked about the development they said: “Internal features, the external features, the functionality of the fittings, the history and the location” – just about everything then!

The Residence apartment now goes through to the programme final against another three properties all aiming to be named Best House in Town.

The P J Livesey involvement at the former Terry’s Chocolate works continues and we are about to start work on converting the site’s landmark Clock Tower into 22 unique apartments.

These too will be very special places to live and with such a limited number interest is already very high.

People who register their interest will be the first to hear news of confirmed build times and details of individual apartments which will range from one bedroom to three bedroom plots.

Work commences at 825 Didsbury

Work has begun at 825 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury to convert listed buildings and former offices to residential and build 22 family sized newly built homes.

Planning for the development was agreed late last year and the first homes will be ready for occupation by this autumn.

P J Livesey Director, James Woodmansee, said: “This is an opportunity to take a site with various buildings both listed and non -listed, some used and some no longer fit for purpose and create a place that will once again be truly part of the community. “

The 4.3 acre site contains a mix of buildings set within spacious grounds with mature tree and landscaping.

The project will bring the handsome Grade II listed Victorian Vila, Cedar House, converted to grand apartments, the Coach House that served the villa will become two properties and the Lodge restored to make one unique property.

The red brick Parklands will also be retained and converted to provide 39 contemporary apartments while a second office building, Aspen House, will be demolished to make way for 22 new build homes.

In total the site will provide 85 new homes.

Demolition of Aspen House is already underway with sales starting off plan in the spring.

The Greater Manchester Pension Fund is providing development funding to the project and Councillor Brenda Warrington, Chair of GMPF, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside such a well-respected developer and look forward to seeing the transformation of the site and in particular, the conversion of the listed buildings into innovative and sought-after homes.

“I’m proud the Greater Manchester Pension Fund is willing to invest in the construction of much-needed housing whilst securing a good return for our members’ pensions. We’re excited by the pipeline of potential investments and we look forward to working on more opportunities to achieve our twin aims of significant investment returns to pay our pensions promises, whilst delivering homes, infrastructure and jobs for Greater Manchester.”

P J Livesey Group was advised by Slater Heelis Law with GVA HOW acting on planning.
