Residential regeneration in progress at historic Victorian villa

Work is under way to transform a Victorian villa in York into new homes.

The Beverley House site, on Shipton Road, next to Homestead Park, is being regenerated by Harrogate-based Inglehurst Property into 21 luxury homes.  

North Yorkshire-based property agent Stephensons has been appointed to market the one, two and three-bedroom properties.

Having secured planning permission in 2021, Inglehurst Property acquired the site from The Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Originally constructed in the late 19th century, Beverley House became a family residence for the Rowntree’s factory manager and later served as offices for the Joseph Rowntree Trust and the Local Government Ombudsmen.

In a tribute to the site’s heritage, the three new buildings have been named Appleton House, Seebohm Lodge, and Homestead View, while the site as a whole is now known as Beverley Court. Beverley House will keep its historic name.  

Matthew Newton, from Inglehurst Property, said: “We are really excited with the progress to transform this magnificent building into bespoke homes that are all unique.” 

Oliver Newby, from Stephensons, added: “These stunning new homes are in an unparalleled location, on the doorstep of Homestead Park, and close to everything that Shipton Road has to offer.

“They offer the epitome of luxury lifestyle, and the development seamlessly blends the revitalisation of the original Beverley House with the creation of new apartments, complementing the history of the site.”

Designed by York-based architect Vincent & Partners, the development features homes surrounding a communal courtyard. The scheme will remove unsympathetic additions and introduce three new buildings to the site.

Completion of the whole development is expected by the end of this year.
