York Victorian villa to be transformed into senior living community
A Victorian building in York is set to be transformed into a new senior living community under new plans.
Proposals have been unveiled to convert Beverley House on Shipton Road into new housing for elderly residents.
Inglehurst Property, which recently bought the site from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, has submitted a full planning application to City of York Council.
Plans for the vacant site include the creation of 24 new homes, as well as bringing the 19th century villa back into use.
Matthew Newton from Inglehurst Property commented: “After years of sitting vacant, we are excited and proud to rejuvenate this magnificent part of York’s heritage to its former glory, especially as certain areas have fallen into disrepair.
“The unsympathetic extensions will be removed and original features of the grand villa restored.
“The new homes will be high quality, sustainable and accessible and the grounds will also be improved through further landscaping and planting to create a vibrant new senior living community.”
