Full description

A beautiful home. A period home, Regency and Grade II listed; a place which whilst not unique, is, by its style and design quite a rarity. Distinguished? certainly, expansive? unquestionably; and for comfort? Well yes, in fact full marks from us in every department. So if you're in a position to buy please make an appointment and we'll gladly give you the grand tour.....

A tour around an exceptional home presented over four floors which oozes as much character features as it does carefully considered and introduced contemporary features, will highlight just how big, how 'period' and how most very very appealing a house this is.

Of course the floor plan is ever useful and we hope the slide show of photographs are too, nevertheless we would like to describe the accommodation, firstly as a brief resume, thereafter with a little meat added to the bone, as it were.

At ground floor are two reception rooms. At the lower ground floor level there is a third reception room and kitchen with breakfast area. Additionally there is a utility room, useful storage, a cloakroom suite and direct access to the rear garden area at this level. At first floor level are two bedrooms including the 'master bedroom' with en suite facilities, walk in wardrobe area, A family bathroom stands adjacent to the second bedroom. Up again and you'll find three further double bedrooms and a second family bathroom.

Outside and the front of the house is naturally well screened from Village Road whilst the rear enjoys a courtyard area. Garaging is with access from Columbia Road.

There is indeed much detail to be found throughout. Look out for the refurbished sash windows, Lincrusta, pitch pine floors, window shutters and fireplaces. Combine that with a high quality spec of fitted kitchen, bathroom-ware and more besides and you begin to get the sense that this is a home to be really appreciated.

Undoubtedly the most central of eye catching features is the hall, stairs and landing areas. A beautiful and most elegant of stairs is filled with natural light courtesy of the atrium above. Arches, spindles and handrails stand proud and a half landing leaves adequate space for a library - real, or not.

The rear ground floor reception has a charming bay window looking down upon the courtyard whilst a fireplace stands central to the far wall as the second focal point to this room. Quite different in character, the front reception room looks out to the considerably private front lawn area, through deep, almost floor to ceiling, sash windows.

The kitchen with breakfast area is to be found at the lower level with access to the courtyard. A kitchen with streamline units, plenty of granite work and breakfast bar space together with a four oven system (gas & electric) along with a range of other appliances (and utility room off). Of course this room contrasts immensely with the refinement of the ground floor rooms, being far more contemporary family space. Having said that, for more formal dining arrangements, waiting on your dining guests from the kitchen across the york stone floor to the dining room, from one side of the house to the other, is as easy as it is practical.(And talking of practicalities there's a cloakroom here too).

And dare we say that during warmer summer days, to open the double doors to the courtyard and extend your entertaining al fresco provides additional enjoyment.

Talking of entertaining you cant but notice one or two contrasting wall paper 'patterns' or 'images' that contrast strongly with the more in keeping softer, more neutral colours a house of this period and style may assume. These occasional feature walls are to be found at half landing, the dining room and the master bedroom.

And the master bedroom is probably our most favourite room of the house. Absolutely gorgeous. Facing south east, of course, the morning sun plays a major part. So too the two windows, the rich natural colour of the floor and the especially comfortable en suite bathroom.

Mind you, the main bathroom across the landing is a rather spectacular room too, luxurious. And the newly installed third bathroom, on the second floor, is both in keeping, a nice proportioned room size as well as warm under foot with its underfloor heating.

And the three double bedrooms at this level are as well presented as any other room. (You only see two as the third is in gym mode). This is a floor with its own landing features, varying ceiling height rooms and character.

A tremendously elegant period home, set for today; full of the most tastefully of presented rooms, furnished with the most appropriate of household appliances and ware - this is a house that looks very much like a show house but has been well used by a large family - an acknowledgement then of its hardiness as well as of its refinement perhaps.

Locator - The centre of the village is but a few minutes walk away. A village, like any other, with a selection of individual shops ranging from delis to florists, hairdressers and post office together with a number of eateries. Oxton is within walking distance of several well regarded schools; Birkenhead School, St Anselm's, BHSA and St Saviour's primary. The tunnel for Liverpool takes about 5 mins by car.
