DESCRIPTION

Tapton Court is a historic building in the desirable suburb of Ranmoor to the west of Sheffield city centre. Built in 1868 for one of Sheffield’s many steel magnates it is an imposing stone villa standing in 3.5 acres of mature walled grounds.

We will be bringing it back to the majesty of its heyday, preserving many of its original features such as the ornate staircase and arched windows and converting the space to create 14 mansion apartments within its splendid walls.

The original stable block and Gate House lodge will also be converted to create two unique individual properties.

A newer annexe, built to provide accommodation for nurses at the nearby hospital and most recently used by Sheffield University as halls of residence, is being retained and will be converted to provide 18 luxury 2, 3 & 4 bedroom apartments.

Four sympathetically designed new family homes will also be built within the grounds while retaining the estate’s historic terraced wall.

Ranmoor has long been an affluent area with many grand properties built for the city’s great industrialists. It also has a Grade II listed church, St Paul’s, the tower and spire of which date back to 1879.

DESCRIPTION

Holden Mill, a Grade II listed building in Blackburn Road, has been held up by Historic England as an example of how such historic buildings can be preserved.

Following the successful conversion of Bolton’s old cotton mill, Eagley Mill into apartments, we then spent six years converting Holden Mills. This large mill which was built in 1926 has been converted to 296 apartments named The Cottonworks.

The building had two accolades the first being it was the first electric powered mill in Bolton and second it was the last mill to be built in Bolton.

One floor is over 300,000sqft.

Each proeprty holds the character of the original building with unique pillars and there is also a charming ‘winter garden’.

DESCRIPTION

The original Ide Hill was a 16th-century hunting lodge. The house stands high on a hill overlooking the North Kent Downs, and in times of unrest, a beacon transmitted alarm signals from across the Downs to Shooters Hill at Eltham.

John Smear extended the house to the south, and commissioned the Arts-and-Crafts architect George Walton, to refurbish the great hall and drawing room between 1902 and 1908.

Later in 1908, Walton painted the huge mural of Diana and Actaeon which dominates the grand central staircase.

The Grade II Georgian country mansion with stable block and Orangery was last used as a care home.

The P J Livesey Group were granted planning permission to convert the manor house into seven grand apartments, and the nearby stable courtyard into seven mews cottages.

Originally a stunning Victorian villa called ‘Beech Grove’ and constructed in 1837.

It became a specialist hospital in 1885 and renamed St Anne’s Hospital.

This unique Grade II listed building had been standing empty for 11 years and was in an very poor condition when the Group exchanged contracts in spring 2011.

23 properties have been completed at ‘Bowdon Place’, including 3 new build houses.

The development has been commended by the local authority, with our approach praised as an example of how other developers should approach sites in the area.

DESCRIPTION

The PJ Livesey Group has started work Green Walk, our latest residential development located at the Siemens Campus at West Didsbury, Manchester. The scheme will provide a mix of 46 contemporary town houses around a central courtyard including 50 apartments in a landmark new building, with access to the development from Nell Lane.

 The apartments, a mix of one, two and three bedrooms, will all have large private balconies and purchasers of the penthouse properties will have access to their own private roof terraces.

The contemporary houses share a bold architectural style with the apartments and will be a mix of four and five-bedroom executive family homes with gardens, roof terraces and generous, modern interior spaces.

The homes are part of wider redevelopment of the nine acre site which will also incorporate new offices aimed at medical and technical businesses and improved landscaping. The scheme accessed from Nell Lane in West Didsbury will sit alongside the existing Sir William Siemens House and the new £65m Spire Manchester Hospital.
