'Do not adjust your set,' as the Outer Limit TV show would say, back in the day: a precursor for something extraordinary that's about to happen or be seen. And so we introduce 2 Columbia Road as such a thing - as dramatic an intro' this may be, it does nothing other than match all that lies behind these set of gates; a word not used lightly, synonymous with breathtaking, sensational. Indeed there's a tome or at least certainly a catalogue of extra special attractions to this substantial and visually attractive and handsome mid Victorian house (circa 1860).
  • With Mansion Flat
  • And Coach Houses
  • A Detached Home
  • With 6 Beds, 3 Bath
  • And 4 Reception Rooms
  • Exemplary

And rather unusually we're going to begin at the bottom of the house. Here lies what is best described in our view as a luxury 'mansion flat'. A conversion of basement rooms the likes of which, the standard and finish of which, the space and versatility of which the writer has not had the privilege to view or prepare for sale in his thirty odd years in the industry. There, that's quite a statement and well felt.

In summary it's a semi independent two bedroomed, two en-suite apartment with separate entrance and with dual access both internally within the house and externally. It comes with integrated kitchen/breakfast; living room with access to both subtly separate and joint access to outdoors; and with a significant entrance hall, generous storage, a utility room, cloakroom facilities and 'man cave', for want of a better description. (That will be the conversion of the original cold food storage area with arched ceiling).

Next we'll refer to the coach houses. Three in tandem. One currently stores the old banger that will get restored one day; the other full of the usual bric a brac one collects over the years and then the middle coach house which is opened during garden parties; for this is the one with the wood burning stove. All romantic stuff and great fun to use; all also offering enormous development potential.

Now to this elegant of period houses. It is certainly beautiful and has been massively refurbished from top to toe for the owners own benefit, over a relatively recent period of time. Pretty exacting in its finish too, always wanting to keep Oxton Society neighbours in favour. And so they did. No easy task. And so full recognition on both counts from us and no doubt from you, once you've appreciated the detailed result, first hand. (We just ask that you are in a position to buy once you've inevitably decided to buy)...

Three entertaining rooms; proper sized reception rooms for that. A fab, well planned working kitchen (both homeowners enjoying their cooking skills); Note the hugely practical idea of a first floor utility room too. In addition to the ground floor space there is a fourth room with bi fold doors to two sides, facing to the rear of the house (and thus south) with an appendage of a covered patio area - we refer you again to the garden party theme....

Bedrooms accommodation include five double sized bedrooms, one large single which, as you see, is currently commandeered as the study, serviced by the most extravagant of en suite/dressing rooms to the 'master' bedroom; en suite shower room to the second, east facing bedroom and one rather opulent 'family' bathroom (should you dare let the children share).

Now outdoors and behind the matching pedestrian and vehicular new gates (the latter, remote) stands an unobtrusive drive for a couple of cars. There's access down the side should you want
eed the coach houses. The garden is beautiful, remarkably private and very much like the interior: interesting, thoughtfully presented and with a sense of fun,

A note now for the more practical of you offering some of the techno' information. The property enjoys 4 kilowatts of solar panels and solar thermal panels for domestic hot water. The feed tariff concludes 2036 and there's approx £25,000 of income over that period; currently generating approx £1,400 per annum. Gas fired under floor heating is installed throughout ground floor with traditional radiators to first and second floor. Under floor heating runs throughout the apartment too.


The house stands a very easy stroll from the very centre of the village. It's five minutes or so by car to the station or tunnel for Liverpool and a brisk ten minute walk to either Birkenhead School or BHSA. For sat nav: CH43 6TU
