COTSWOLD ESTATE REVEALS FIRST HERITAGE HOMES
Show Home Event Weekend Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th July • 10am until 4pm

The first conversion properties at our Green Walk development at Stonehouse in Gloucestershire are being revealed this weekend. (July 9/10)

We are opening the doors of two stunning properties show casing The Residence – an Art Deco style building that has been skilfully converted to create 11, three bedroom houses and two grand apartments.

These stunning homes enjoy an enhanced Heritage Range specification befitting their character with taller skirting boards, superior kitchen range and hard flooring.

The houses have four sets of bi-fold doors, at ground floor leading out onto a private garden and from the first-floor bedrooms opening onto a balcony with the original curved metal balustrade.

Prices start at £579,950

Group sales manager Gavin Pearce said: “The Residence sits at the back of the 30-acre site with uninterrupted woodland views at the front.

“The distinctive building has been converted with much thought and care to create homes that respect the history and style of the building.

“Having bi-fold doors on both levels really opens up the properties to make the most of the magnificent, mature woodland setting.

“Six of the properties have already been reserved off plan and we cannot wait to open the doors of the show homes and let people see the character and quality on offer.”

The two large apartments sit at the apex of the building’s two wings and offer truly unique accommodation with one accessed by the original Art Deco staircase and the other boasting a large private garden.

They are priced from £674,950

The Residence is one of four Listed buildings on The Standish Estate that we are converting to create beautiful homes of character.

We are also building new homes ranging from two-bedroom mews to large detached family properties.

Gavin added: “The first phase of new build homes is now completely sold out and it is lovely to see the first residents enjoying life at Green Walk, Standish.

“We expect similar demand for the conversion properties and also the next release of new build homes which will include three bedroom semi-detached houses and mews homes perfect for first time buyers wanting to put down roots somewhere very special.”

Situated in an elevated location just outside the village of Stonehouse, The Residence is approached via a sweeping tree-lined drive from where there are distant views to the Severn Estuary.

Stonehouse train station has direct rail routes into London and the town is five minutes from the thriving centre of Stroud. Gloucester, Cheltenham and Swindon are all within an easy commute.

The show homes are open this weekend with the final few appointments available From 10am – 4pm Saturday and Sunday.

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR GIUSEPPE

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR GIUSEPPE

Giuseppe Alfonso knew the moment that he walked onto our Storeton Hall development he wanted to live there. 

Giuseppe Alfonso knew the moment he walked onto our Storeton Hall development on the Wirral that he wanted to live there and reserved a property on the spot!

“I fell in love with it straight away and as soon as I walked in the show house I told Ryan to sign me up!” he said.

Giuseppe has lived on the Wirral all his adult life and loves that fact that the west side of the peninsular has a country / outdoorsy feel but is still handy for everywhere. He said: “Its seven miles in a taxi for a night out in Liverpool while Chester and Manchester are easy to get to but when you are here it’s really beautiful and peaceful.

“I’d been cycling past Storeton Hall for six years so knew the location and on the spur of the moment called in when I saw the sales launch sign.”

He bought a three-bedroom semi-detached property which looks across to the Listed Hall which is being converted to create two large properties.

Giuseppe said: “It is really nice being part of such a historical site and my house is lovely, really light with big rooms and finished to a really high specification.

“PJ Liveseys are doing it really well with lots of open space and a real mix of properties and the whole team has been wonderful to deal with – nothing has been too much trouble.

“It is not a big development and I think that once the site is finished it will be amazing. I feel very lucky to be living here.”

IMPORTANT HERITAGE BUILDINGS SAVED IN STROUD

SEPTEMBER, 2019

STANDISH ESTATE PURCHASE

32-acre site near Stroud within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

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.

Plans to Assure Future for Standish Heritage Buildings

Plans to Assure Future for Standish Heritage Buildings

JUNE, 2017

News & Events, Planning Consultation.

Following close consultation with community groups, Stroud District Council and Historic England The P J Livesey Group have submitted detailed development proposals for the former Standish Hospital and the neighbouring Westridge Hospital sites at Stroud in Gloucestershire.

The main Standish Hospital closed in 2004 and the P J LIvesey Group were appointed preferred developer by current site owners, the Homes and Communities Agency. The soon to be vacant adjacent adult care facility, owned by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, will be incorporated into the scheme as part of a comprehensive redevelopment. If approved, the plans would secure the future of six heritage buildings which have spanned the centuries. The centrepiece Grade II listed Standish House, its neighbouring stable block together with two Art Deco style ward buildings and the gate lodge on Horsemarling Lane would all be sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations. There are also plans to save the site’s distinctive hydrotherapy pool building, which was previously considered for demolition, making way for two distinctive houses. The conversion would be further enhanced by extensive improvements to the grounds, including new footpaths and enhanced green spaces across the site. Making the most of the unique mature landscape and incorporating a range of ecological habitat improvements, the application outlines details for the provison of bespoke accommodation for rare species of bats. These measures would be supported by an ‘enabling development’ of 98 high quality newly built family homes designed specifically to compliment the location. Properties will will range from two to five bedrooms, catering for a broad spectrum of potential future residents. The six heritage buildings will be converted into 50 unique properties:

  • Grade II Standish House – 15 mansion style apartments
  • Stable Block – 5 houses
  • Art Deco Men’s Ward building – 13 houses
  • Art Deco Women’s Ward Building – 10 houses and 4 apartments
  • 1970’s hydrotherapy unit – two single level properties
  • The Estate Lodge House – one house
The plans are now being considered by Stroud District Council and if approved the group anticipates being on site in late 2017 with the first properties launched for sale in 2018.

“Sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations”

We anticipate demand will be high, so please take some time to register your early interest here to ensure you are kept updated with all the latest news and developments from Standish. You can also read more about the extensive plans here in an article recently published by The Stroud News and Journal.
