Specialising in breathing life back into historical buildings – combining tradition and quality with modern technology and design – to create a very special living experience for the twenty first century.

Victoria MillsFor those who don’t know, Newmason Properties was co-founded by Alec Newsham and Andrew Mason in the autumn of 2002. Through a friendship founded over the sale of a horse, Alec and Andrew have created an innovative property development company that is going from strength to strength. Newmason has a highly focused team with a wealth of design and construction experience and specialises in breathing life back into historical buildings.

They are based in Bradford and are extremely proud to be participating in the regeneration of this once wealthy and powerful 19th Century city.

The beautiful buildings and mills built over the last couple of centuries are a legacy to the area and will be an important part of Bradford’s future development as a vibrant city of culture and modern living.


Victorian SchoolNewmason’s first development was an undisputed success with the conversion of a Victorian school on Byron Street in Bradford.

The sympathetic restoration of this beautiful Victorian building has allowed the creation of exciting and stylish homes and the demand and interest in these unique apartments has accorded Newmason a reputation for being one of the top property developers in the area.

They have carried this reputation through to their second project at Victoria Mills. The mill conversion, which has created over 300 stylish apartments in landscaped gardens, created a unique development, the like of which has never been seen in the Bradford area.

The idylic setting of the site, contains, a tennis court, a gym, concierge services and riverside seating, helping to create a tranquil and unique atmosphere from which all residents can benefit.
