The conversion of the iconic Grade II listed former Terrys Chocolate factory building has been acknowledged as the best new residential development in Yorkshire after winning a number of industry awards. The amazing success story has pushed plans for the neighbouring Terry’s clock tower to also be converted into apartments with buyers already registering their interest.

The tower and the adjoining boiler building will provide 22 spacious apartments, and although totally separate from the main Factory Building residents will be able to use the services of the onsite concierge.

Rising above the green and pleasant landscape of the Knavesmire, The Residence combines heritage with contemporary design to redefine your expectation of luxury living. Overlooking historic York this magnificent building offers a unique opportunity to enjoy life in this beautiful and vibrant city.

About Developer

In a world dominated by mass production it can often seem as though the real quality and craft of building and architecture have been left far behind. The beautiful buildings of Britain were created with vision, passion and craftsmanship. Few would argue that these qualities are becoming increasingly rare in today's construction industry.

For almost 30 years the P J Livesey Group has been at the forefront of specialist property development and restoration, taking an uncompromising approach that puts quality first every time. The company was founded in 1979 and we have built our reputation through the painstaking renovation of some of the finest period properties in the country. Projects such as High Lawn, Bostock Hall, Wyfold Court and Ingress Abbey won immediate acclaim and have given the company a secure foundation for expansion.

The P J Livesey Group vision grew to include new build developments, combining the renovation of a period property with the construction of new housing within its grounds. Our central design philosophy has remained the same throughout our growth. We took the step right from our inception to look holistically at the difficulties of successfully converting buildings and to provide a single solution that covers aesthetics, design, construction, costs, interior design, furniture and fittings.

This in-house philosophy will continue to be the major factor in how we approach our developments in the future. Wherever we build our developments, whatever the property price, a P J Livesey home allows you to make the most of your life. This comes from always thinking about, and listening to, how people are living their lives before putting pen to plan, and that makes for a home that’s designed with real individuality as well as genuine practicality, both in the big things and the little touches.
