Enchanced Lifestyle at Alderley Park

A brand new gym and sports complex will open at Alderley Park this autumn, which is great news for our residents at The Historic Quarter who will simply be able to step out of their door and stroll across the parkland for their daily workout.

Opening in September this year, the new sports complex will include a health and fitness suite, dance studio, sports hall, three tennis courts and a five-a-side all-weather football pitch. There will also be new 7-a-side and 11-a-side football pitches and outdoor recreation areas.

It is being managed by Cheshire-based Everybody Sport and Recreation, and members will also be able to use any of the 15 other group run centres across Cheshire including at Macclesfield, Wilmslow and Knutsford.

The gym is all part of the whole lifestyle on offer at Alderley Park where a new community is gently settling in and enjoying life on this historic estate. Other elements will be a gastro pub, boutique hotel and a farm shop.

We have just seven houses left at The Historic Quarter, contemporary spaces set around a cobbled courtyard some with first floor terraces that enjoy views over the parkland and offer the perfect spot to watch the sun go down.

January, 2019

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.

Cedar House reborn

New Didsbury Villas on Sandhurst Road


June, 2018


Our ambitious transformation of Cedar House at Woodbridge in Suffolk is now complete

The property is now a spacious five bedroom family home with handsome double bay frontage and contemporary bi-fold doors at the rear – and it looks stunning.

The building has been a landmark in Woodbridge for centuries and while originally built as a house it had suffered insensitive additions over the years and had latterly been used as office accommodation.

Our designs to give it new life were radical and involved demolishing the Victorian additions, turning the house back to front to make the most of the lovely plot and building a second match new bay window to give the house a ‘face.’

Teams of craftsmen from stone masons to carpenters to electricians and roofers worked on the project for months supervised by site managers Curtis Mighall and Alan Venables.

It is a proud moment for the whole company to see Cedar House complete and ready to take pride of place in Woodbridge for another couple of hundred years.

Please take a look at the breathtaking aerial footage of Cedar House today by clicking on the video below.

The Residence, York completes




We have completed the final apartment at The Residence, our conversion of the former Terry’s Chocolate Factory Building at York

This has been an incredible project and a wonderful success story for everyone concerned. We are very pleased that the final home has now been finished with the new owners moving in before Christmas.

The sheer scale of the building and its heritage significance has needed all the company’s skill in order to convert and we are delighted that this has been recognised with a number of awards.

There was unprecedented demand from buyers who wanted to live in this iconic building which has proved to be the company’s fastest selling development. 163 luxury apartments and penthouses were sold in just 12 months.

The mix of properties has made The Residence a thriving community and has provided a lasting legacy for the city, preserving this much – loved landmark for years to come. The P J Livesey team are looking forward to converting the neighbouring clock tower early in the New Year.
