Property description

The owner engaged the services of an architect to investigate the possibility of constructing two detached dwelling houses within the existing curtilage of the dwelling house. One and a half storey residential dwelling house fronting onto Allerton Road, including the creation of a new vehicle access and one, two storey residential dwelling fronting onto Glendyke Road. Although no formal application or pre-planning application has been submitted, initial enquiries received a favourable response from the planning department. This is a truly wonderful opportunity to purchase a detached period residence situated within the heart of the Allerton and Calderstones District dating back to 1650. The external elevations are finished in stone with a smooth white render covering and decorative carved stone work to both window and door casings beneath a Westmorland slated roof. The Forty Pits, as referred to in the Doomsday Book, offers seclusion amidst this popular and affluent district of South Liverpool providing an enviable and enjoyable lifestyle for any prospective purchaser. The gardens surrounding the property are substantial with the rear garden offering beautiful areas of lawn in addition to a tennis court and lake with surrounding walkway. The spacious front garden offers a number of established trees and shrubs in addition to three access points, one being from a lych gate on the Allerton Road entrance. This lych gate was originally constructed from the oak beams of the original property and provides a charming and delightful entrance to one of Liverpools most talked about and beautiful residences. Internally the property offers comfortable and delightful accommodation laid out over three floors. Most of the interior has been refurbished in recent years to an immaculate and high standard including bespoke internal joinery and a stylish and modern solid wood Miele kitchen. The stunning grand entrance hall has a carved return staircase leading to a full galleried landing. Both the accommodation to the ground and first floor runs off the reception hallway and landing making this a comfortable and well planned residence. The majority of the living and sleeping quarters face onto the established and beautiful rear gardens. This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to be offered for sale via the South Liverpool market place and we would strongly advise an inspection in order to appreciate this charming and beautiful detached residence.

Enjoying a substantial plot of 1.016 acres, the property sits within the heart of this established and picturesque South Liverpool suburb. Situated opposite Calderstones Park,  the property is conveniently located for access to a wide and comprehensive range of amenities including established schooling covering all age ranges and faith groups, in addition to a selection of local parish churches including the historic and beautiful All Hallows Church. Excellent shopping facilities are available at nearby Allerton Road and Mather Avenue as well as Allerton Road also offering a fine selection of wine bars, restaurants and bistros. The charming nearby area of Woolton Village offers further shopping facilities, a local cinema and library. Public transport services are readily available in the area via both road and rail and a comprehensive local road network brings the city centre and many further districts of Liverpool to within easy reach. Access is also available to further conurbations such as Manchester and Warrington via strong motorway links including the M62. Both national and international travel is provided for at the John Lennon Liverpool Airport which is only a short car journey away. Calderstones Park, which is situated across the road, is one of Liverpool’s premier green spaces and offers attractions such as the Botanical Gardens, The Calderstones and annual events including the Liverpool International Tennis Tournament. These particulars have been prepared to provide a general overview of this period detached residence.
