We have begun work to convert the Grade II listed Tapton Court in Sheffield into 14 apartments

The villa, built in 1868 for one of the town’s many steel magnates, is a glorious building surrounded by mature trees on an elevated site to the west of the city.

Teams of specialists are now working on the building to preserve the original staircase with its stained-glass window and other features.

A neighbouring annexe, Ranmoor House, built in the 1930’s, is also being converted to provide 18 apartments.

The original Gate House on Shore Road will become an individual property as will the stable block at the rear of the site.

We are also building just four, family sized four bedroom houses to the north of the site.

Approached up a formal drive with landscaped grounds, private gardens and terraces, this will be a very special development, in a location convenient for central Sheffield but also giving easy access to the Peak District.

Managing Director Georgina Lynch said: “Tapton Court is an imposing property on a mature wooded site and has been on Sheffield Council’s Building’s at Risk Register.

“It is very satisfying to be able to work on buildings like this, preserve what is there and give them new use as modern homes with character.

“This will be another PJ Livesey legacy development where people love to live.”

In detail, there will be seven one bedroom apartments, 14 two bedrooms and 11 apartments offering three bedrooms. The Gate House and the Stables will both have three bedrooms. The new build houses will have four bedrooms.
