Beverley House

The residential re-development and refurbishment of Beverley House on Shipton Road in York. Purchased from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the substantial dwelling was formerly home to the general manager of York’s Rowntree Cocoa Works but more recently housed the Local Government Ombudsmen office.

Working in close collaboration with our client, Inglehurst Property, Vincent & Partners developed proposals that would rejuvenate and revitalise this grand Victorian Villa, with the addition of new-build residential blocks to the side and rear that enclose a new landscaped courtyard. After years of sitting vacant, the original villa will be sensitively returned to its former glory, with unsympathetic extensions removed and original features restored.

Once complete, the new 'Beverley Court' development will offer 21 unique, luxury apartments in a stunning location, only one mile from the centre of York and overlooking Homestead Park. The new residential blocks will nestle unobtrusively within the grounds reflecting the architectural style of the main house. The new green, landscaped courtyard will create a communal centre to the development, encouraging a sense of community and inclusivity for the new residents.

Having received planning approval in 2023, the project is well under way on site with completion expected by the end of 2024.

Vincent & Partners provided full architectural services, with continued support on site.
