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

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.

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.

Experience a New Lifestyle at Green Walk, Didsbury.

We have just opened the doors to one of our most impressive show homes to date – a magnificent five / six-bedroom property in a prime spot at our Green Walk development in West Didsbury.

Perfectly demonstrating that for the first time you can be close to the heart of this trendy south Manchester suburb without compromising on space and modern convenience.

Expansive open plan living with bi-fold doors opening onto a private garden, a master bedroom suite with terrace and three more bedrooms on the first floor, with a guest suite on the second floor and a sixth bedroom/ family room opening onto a roof terrace.

Add in driveway parking, an integral garage and walk-though utility/laundry room and it ticks all the boxes for modern, stylish living.

Group sales manager Gavin Pearce said: “The show home illustrates perfectly what life at Green Walk is all about. It is close to both the city centre and the motorway network yet has all the attractions of the independent shops and restaurants of West Didsbury within walking distance.

“Families wanting easy living space and a place to park outside their door have previously had to move out of the area. But at Green Walk you have space to breathe, room to grow and time to relax.”

 

Not surprising then that of the 30 properties released in the first phase, 25 have already sold with the first residents already moved in.

The show home is a Carroll house type and is priced at £779,950 which includes show home extras of luxury carpets throughout and wardrobes to the master bedroom.

Two other Carroll house types will be available for occupation this spring.

Don’t miss out on these exceptional properties.

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.

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.”
