Originally built in 1891 in Didsbury Village, Lawnhurst - a 73 roomed Mansion House - was restored to its former grandeur with twelve luxury villa-style apartments with a boutique-inspired communal area, creating luxury living space in the heart of the St James Conservation Area. The development was hugely successful with all the stunning homes sold prior to their public launch.
Short-listed for the prestigious 2013 Housing Design Award, The Roof Gardens is an artistic take on urban chic living, drawing inspiration from concepts in New York, London, Amsterdam and beyond. Each of its 49 townhouses and 22 apartments is provided with all the luxuries of suburban life in city centre Manchester, with all homes enjoying their very own individual, private roof garden.
Nestled in the landscaped grounds of Lawnhurst, Lawnhurst Villa - 826 Wilmslow Road presents the most exclusive private residence in Didsbury Village.

Southbank House and Delamer Lodge will provide exclusive residential space in one of Cheshire’s most cherished neighbourhoods, Bowdon.

At the heart of the development is a new civic square, overlooked by cafés, restaurants and entrepreneurs’ studios.
