Thankerton House stands within nearly half an acre of grounds behind a secure boundary to the front with 'in and out' automated gates. The surrounding residential area is well established and amenities are offered in a number of locations close by including Gateacre Village, Woolton Village and Allerton Road where a varied and vibrant selection of restaurants, bistros and wine bars can be found in addition to a cinema and libraries. Excellent schooling is available across all age ranges and faiths in the district and superstore and local shopping is available at many of the amenity centres mentioned previously. This area of Liverpool is well served by local parks and amenity areas including Blackwood, Woolton Woods, Reynolds Park or alternatively at Calderstones Park which is only a short distance away. Comprehensive public transport services are available within the district and excellent road links bring Liverpool city centre and many further districts of Liverpool to within easy reach. Excellent motorway links are available bringing conurbations such as Manchester and
Warrington to within easy reach and both National and International travel is provided for at the John Lennon Liverpool Airport.


The original Thankerton House was bespoke built in the 1930s for a local dignitary and has been comprehensively re-modelled by our inspired client to create a magnificent home which, whilst retaining the superb proportions and style of the original concept, now offers luxurious and incredibly generous accommodation suited to today's lifestyles. The original principal reception rooms have been retained and augmented by both a family room and a large sun room which opens to the gardens and side terrace. It is the leisure area, arguably the most impressive in South Liverpool,
which really sets this property apart. With an indoor pool terrace area for entertaining, a large swimming pool with waterfall cascade, 12 seat steam room and 7 seat Spa with changing rooms and an air conditioned gym all opening to a south facing terrace; even the most discerning of buyers cannot fail to be impressed. The security aspects of the property have had equal importance with laminated ground floor windows, CCTV monitoring, a second floor panic room and two sets of automated remotely controlled gates.There is an integrated International satellite system with 17 TV points throughout the house including Tile Televisions to two bathrooms. The leisure suite includes an integrated audio system with ipod/iphone docking. The kitchen, like the bathrooms, is state of the art with wine fridges, AEG integrated appliances, and granite tops and opens to a breakfast terrace in the Mediterranean garden to the rear. Inlaid bespoke doors feature throughout.
The recessed entrance porch has a polished granite floor and an oak door opening to the reception hall. This impressive room has an oak floor, a staircase with splayed steps leading to the first floor and a door entry phone for the entrance gates.

Double doors open to the sun lounge which is a superb entertaining room in its own right.
