GOING DOWN? GOING UP? Property Loft & Cellar Conversions The last 10 years has seen an increase in cellar and loft conversions and I’m often asked “What value do they add to the subject property?” Like everything else in life it’s about the quality of the finish verses the cost of the exercise, and a […]
The Reform Club, Heaton Moor Road
Property SummaryA stylish modern apartment in the heart of Heaton Moor with outstanding views over the large communal lawned garden with a wealth of history at the front of the development. On your doorstep are the local bars, restaurants, shops and cafe's and Heaton Chapel train station is a short walk away.
A POLITICAL TWIST THAT WILL WIN YOUR VOTE On the 8th January 1887, members of Heaton Chapel & District Liberal Club walked in procession along Heaton Moor Road to their brand new purpose built club. It was to be the scene of many glittering social occasions and was a signpost to the growth of the area during the industrial revolution as a choice of home for the new gentrified classes. The architect to be chosen had to enter a competition for its design and it was won by Alfred Derbyshire who also was responsible for Heaton Moor Congregational Church.
In 2011 work commenced on converting The Reform Club to 33 residential apartments. The scheme by Contour Homes and designed by TADW Architects paid homage to the locally listed building and retained the Flemish tower with weather vane, the stone mullioned windows and open stone headed archway to the handsome frontage. They added new blood to the rear and incorporated 2 atria to allow for staircases and lift systems. At the same time this brought natural light in to this new world.
The outcome is a cherished setting in the Conservation Area in the heart of Heaton Moor with access to excellent shops, café bars and watering holes the area offers.
Our clients home is a two bedroom apartment located on the top floor with dynamic roof top views and an impressive position overlooking the neatly maintained and landscaped grounds. Here you also see evidence of community with a summer house storing games, garden furniture and barbeque facilities for sharing on balmy summer days.
Contemporary living on the interior provides a stylish living kitchen and quality bathroom to compete the perfect fusion of past and present. It is a home that demands a liberal amount of your time but will ultimately prove to be a less than conservative choice of new home.
