Master bedroom with dressing room and en suite / robe, guest bedroom and shower room on the 1st floor and 3 double bedrooms and 2 shower rooms above. Cellar with den, wine cellar and store.

.

Built in 1852 by Thomas Brassey for his son on the occasion of his marriage to Idina. Subsequently owned by a F.E.Smith who later became Lord Birkenhead, a property with history and credentials
This substantial residence provides more than ample, well proportioned accommodation on three floors with cellars.

.

At the time, Thomas Brassey was growing a business empire from humble beginnings near Chester, a quarry in Storeton and brickworks in Birkenhead, through railways and civil engineering to become one of the world's greatest entrepreneurs of the 19th century. Local materials are, not surprisingly, evident throughout the house.

.

The present owners have created something rather special and although they will miss the atmosphere, particularly at Christmas time, seemingly little things such as the return of the geese to the lake and more importantly the convenience for Liverpool and Oxton village.

.

This grade two listed residence is set in mature gardens within Birkenhead Park, itself a landmark of its time and the model for Central Park, New York.
Idina offers a glimpse of the past, well proportioned rooms with lofty ceilings and decorative fittings and finishes.

The present owners looked long and hard to find their ideal home, one that gave them the space and character they required, they found the house and then set to work making their home.
Original features were retained, rooms were adapted, the master bedroom suite, kitchen, bathrooms and shower rooms were created.
Set within Birkenhead Park overlooking the lake, there are playing fields and leisure facilities for all the family, excellent public and private schooling with Birkenhead School and St Anselms nearby.
Oxton Village offers cafes, bars and restaurants. Ideally situated with road and rail connections to Liverpool within a short walk and equally convenient for the motorway network

.

Cavendish Road winds past the tennis courts and the entrance to Idina opens into a pebbled forecourt with plentiful parking, enclosed domestic area with stores and a gated access to the main entrance.
Passing beneath the balcony to the garden, the stepped threshold comes into view with an impressive recessed entrance and attractive vestibule.
The impressive reception area opens into the main hall where the mosaic flooring continues and the period finishes welcome you.

.

From here the choice is yours, ahead the splendid Drawing Room 17'11'' x 14'10' with deep georgian window and boards, substantial fireplace and a pleasant outlook over the garden, or right into the delightful Dining Kitchen 19'10 x 13'9 with a deep splayed bay window, an extensive range of fitted base and wall cupboards together with attractive granite work surfaces and a range of appliances.

.

The cloakroom, off the hall, is very useful and then it's down to the well appointed toilet, and fitted utility room.
The housekeeper's flat potentially has independant accommodation with a pleasant lounge and kitchen area, bedroom and a well fitted en suite shower room/toilet.
Cellars, not just cellars - the 'Den' 17'6 x 14'3 - it's the boys dream, playroom, bar - study - chill out or just get away from it all! Then there is the vaulted wine cellar 17' x 6'6 and the boiler/laundry room 15'7 x 14'0 providing plentiful storage.

.

On the first floor the stunning master bedroom suite 28'8 x 17'10 max incorporates a lounge/dressing room plus a contemporary en-suite shower room with an extensive walk-in robe incorporating bespoke accessory storage.
