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.

July, 2019

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.

To keep up to date with the latest sales information along with first phase release dates at 825 Didsbury please register your interest.

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.
