New Homes at Storeton Hall

Family sized homes designed specifically for this countryside setting.

Work at our latest new development, Storeton Hall on the Wirral peninsular is progressing well and sales of new homes will start in the spring, ready for occupation in summer 2020.

The original Storeton Hall, which dates back to around 1372, is also being sensitively restored and vertically divided to create two unique homes homes while the neighbouring Storeton Hall barn will be converted to create two properties.

It means that the Hall, the second oldest building on the Wirral, and a unique piece of the region’s history will be saved for future generations and returned to it’s original residential use.

On a separate part of the site impressive new equestrian facilities have already been completed providing state of the art stabling and purpose-built exercise arenas through a well-respected independent livery yard.

Group Sales Manager Gavin Pearce said: “We are very excited about the launch of Storeton Hall and with just 27 new homes and four unique conversions it will be a very special and privileged place to live.

“If you do have a passion for horses it would be the perfect place to call home with brand new stabling and outdoor facilities and acres of land for hacking right on your doorstep.”

“We expect huge interest when our sales cabin opens on site in April and suggest people who are interested to register their details with us now so we can keep them updated with the very latest information on house types and launch prices.”

Go Gold for Research

Recent fundraising at our Trafford Park Headquarters has helped two wonderful local charities.

Throughout the whole of September the P J Livesey offices turned ‘Gold’ in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

With a gold-themed cake baking contest, a golden egg raffle and a guess the name of a giant gold bear competion, our generous staff and visitors raised a magnificent £2,180.50 in aid of Friends of Rosie.

The donation will help the Manchester based charity to fund pioneering research looking for improvements in the treatment and diagnosis of children with cancer.

Dorothea Livesey, of P J Livesey, said “We are delighted to support this very worthwhile local charity and help raise awareness for childhood cancer research. My thanks go to everyone who helped to organise events and donated during the month, helping us to reach such a fantastic fundraising total.”

Felicity Goodey CBE DL, Friends of Rosie Chair of Trustees, visited the office to pick up the cheque and said “Our huge thanks goes to the team at P J Livesey for their amazing fundraising achievements during September. Support like this helps us pump more funding into these vital areas of research, making a difference for children with cancer in the future.”

Giant gold bears were also in residence at our developments at Green Walk in West Didsbury and The Historic Quarter at Alderley Park with viewers and purchasers also invited to guess the giant toy’s name.

Sheila King, one of our new residents at The Historic Quarter guessed correctly but generously decided to donate the cuddly bear to Francis House Hospice in Didsbury. 

 A whole hearted thank you to everyone who got involved and we send our very best wishes to the charities.

IMPORTANT HERITAGE BUILDINGS SAVED IN STROUD

Best House in Town!

September, 2019

Standish Estate Purchase Completed 

We have just completed the purchase of the Standish Estate, a beautiful 32-acre site near Stroud in Gloucestershire within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

At the heart of this glorious wooded estate are a cluster of historic buildings that span the centuries, including a Grade 2 listed Georgian manor house. The estate was most recently used as a hospital and other buildings include two Art Deco style ward buildings and a distinctive hydrotherapy pool house.

The main hospital closed in 2004 and earlier this year we received planning permission to convert the existing buildings into 48 homes and within the grounds will build some brand new homes designed specifically for this unique location.

We will also be making extensive improvements to the grounds including new footpaths and improved open spaces to make the most of the unique mature landscaped and incorporating a range of ecological habitat improvements, including new homes for rare species of bats.

Director James Woodmansee said: “We are very pleased to now be in a position to start work to save these important heritage buildings and give them new purpose, using our experience in dealing with complex sites where creative solutions are required.

“While the site has a number of complex constraints, the unique setting with hundreds of mature trees and stunning views over the open countryside, combined with a group of heritage assets on a scale rarely seen in the UK, provide the foundation for an exceptional development.

“It has taken many of years of hard work to get to this point, working closely with Homes England and the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, our team of designers and consultants, Stroud District Council, the local Parish Councils and local residents. We were delighted that the efforts to strike the delicate balance between providing a long-term future for the heritage assets and minimising impact on the special setting were recognised by the planning committee members with their unanimous decision.

“After being boarded up for more than a decade, the buildings are in a poor state of repair and were in danger of being lost forever. We will use all our skills and expertise, learned over four decades, to bring them back to life and create a truly stunning development that respects this unique and beautiful location.”

Standish House, together with its adjoining stable block, will be converted to 20 grand houses and apartments, and the two distinctive Art Deco style ward buildings will be converted to 26 properties. The hydrotherapy pool building, which was previously considered for demolition, will be converted into two properties.

Ranged across the site the 99 new build homes, from two-bedroom starter homes to larger family semi-detached and detached houses, will provide a diverse range of properties each designed specifically for the site.

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
