Cavendish Place – stylish new homes in Bowdon with an echo of the past

An imaginative development which combines the restoration of two former grand properties in prestigious Bowdon with the creation of seventeen stylish, superior homes will go ahead this Autumn, it was announced 30th July 2015.

Following planning approval, DeTrafford Estates will commence work on Cavendish Place, a desirable private development at the heart of the village with one of Cheshire’s most desirable postcodes.  The plans acknowledge the heritage significance of the buildings in restoring the elegant period facades while allowing for their sensitive conversion to create luxury living space for today’s purchasers.

Southbank House was owned in the 1860’s by a wealthy cotton merchant and the new homes will showcase the building’s heritage through restoring original period features, while combining ultra efficient modern technology to provide attractive, appealing contemporary homes.  Accommodation comprises:

8 x three bedroom duplex apartments

1 x four bedroom house (16 Higher Downs)

Delamer Lodge will offer a range of accommodation from generously proportioned suites and apartments to stylish duplexes and prestigious penthouses. The building successfully combines the clean, minimal lines of modern interior architecture with its period exterior design.  Choice of homes will include:

4 x three bedroom triplex apartments

1 x four bedroom duplex apartment

1 x three bedroom duplex apartment

1 x three bedroom duplex house (The Glass House)

1 x three bedroom triplex house (The Coach House)


Each lavishly equipped home will enjoy its own outside space – a terrace, balcony or sunken garden – within the private walled gardens and manicured lawns of Cavendish Place.  Inside, the generously proportioned windows and high ceilings will create open and elegant spaces, bathed in pools of natural light which will evoke the genteel aura of a bygone age.

Michael Walsh, Commercial Director of DeTrafford Estates, commented: “We are always seeking innovative, efficient and elegant design solutions.  At the heart of our plans for Cavendish Place was the removal of unsympathetic extensions to the existing buildings and their replacement with a high quality designed development for today’s living, together with the sensitive restoration and repair of the original fabric.”

DeTrafford Estates is based in Alderley Edge and has successfully completed a sensitive conversion of Lawnhurst, a 73 room Victorian manor house.  It has been acknowledged for the award winning design of The Roof Gardens development in Castlefield which will provide 22 apartments and 49 townhouses and has recently been granted planning permission for the development of The Sky Gardens with 162 apartments on the neighbouring site.
