York House, Heaton Moor, Stockport

Stockport MBC and Viaduct Partnerships Ltd (Stockport Homes)

 

As part of a borough wide assessment of council assets for potential residential use, we prepared 8 feasibility studies on sites across Stockport.

 

York House is one of these assets in the Heaton Moor Conservation Area. The existing Victorian villa, used as a mental health resource unit, is vacated and converted into 5 affordable self-contained apartments for shared ownership

 

The design required careful demolition of modern and other historical additions to the rear and side of York House to return the villa to its original footprint and roofscape.

 

A new three storey block of apartments containing 6 affordable self-contained apartments is to the rear of the villa, articulated to fit into the conservation setting, with the existing drive into the site upgraded leading to rear parking and amenity areas. Living spaces are positioned to maximize views and sunlight.
