Full description

++IMMEDIATE, UNINTERRUPTED SEA VIEWS & PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS++ NO ONGOING CHAIN PURCHASE++STUNNING ORIGINAL FEATURES THROUGHOUT++ A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire what must be one of the most exceptional period residences along the Wirral peninsula coastline. 'West Ho' is a house of immense Georgian period stature, steeped in local nautical history and comes to market with the benefit of no ongoing chain. Originally named 'Canada House', it is understood to have been erected during the mid 18th century by the Admiralty as a customs house. Its purpose was to collect duty from ships mooring in Hoyle Lake, before catching the tide to take them onward to the port of Liverpool. It was indeed one of the very first properties to be built on this stretch of coast. Now a home of great warmth and welcome, the current owners have created a house that provides all the necessary requirements for the modern day way of life, whilst retaining an abundance of the original period features and detailing, for example the panelling and archway in the entrance hall are original and where it is thought to have been a waiting room for sailors when paying their duties. Arranged over three spacious floors and beholding the most exceptional views across Hoylake beach and beyond, the accommodation briefly comprises of entrance hall, dining kitchen complete with Aga and doors to the garden, utility room, three principal reception rooms and six bedrooms, two en-suite. An interior view is truly essential to fully appreciate such a stunning home.
