Update on former hospital site


The redevelopment of a former hospital and estate near Stonehouse is reaching its final phase.

Standish House was built as a private residence in 1830 and is the birthplace of socialist pioneer Beatrice Webb. 

During the wars it was used as a hospital and later expanded as a specialist centre for the treatment of tuberculosis before being acquired by the NHS.

Closed as a general hospital in 2004 the site was acquired by specialist heritage developer the PJ Livesey Group in 2019 with work starting the following year.

Three of the site’s listed buildings have been converted to create unique new homes and work is now underway to turn Standish House itself into 12 grand apartments and the original stables into three and four bedroom houses.

PJ Livesey managing director, Georgina Lynch, said: “The Standish Estate had been abandoned for a decade before we began work and it has been hugely rewarding for all the teams to bring the very different listed buildings back into use.

“The jewel in the crown is Standish House itself. It has significant original features which have been retained and are now being incorporated into the individual apartments so each one is unique.

“It is a project that requires great expertise and we are proud to have been able to use local skills and support the local supply chain.

“Despite the restrictions of the pandemic we have delivered not just the conversion of three historic buildings but a wide range of energy efficient new build homes from two-bedroom mews to contemporary five-bedroom family homes.

“At the same time the historic estate, planted as an arboretum with rare species of trees, has been restored and improved with new pathways connecting into the woodlands behind.

“We are incredibly proud of the transformation and the feedback from residents now living here is lovely. Every PJ Livesey development is unique but Green Walk Standish is exceptional and opening the doors of a restored Standish House is very exciting.”

Apartments for sale in Standish House range from a one bedroom apartment at £279,950 to a four-bedroom duplex penthouse with roof terrace at £850,000.
