For the very fact we will rightly or wrongly assume this will attract a large family, or indeed extended family, we would draw your attention first to this 'mansion' apartment. 'Mansion', as in very large. You can see by the floor plan just how large. But it is also very well planned too, in our view, at least.
The living room facing south west and full of deep glass windows to two elevations (as well as double opening glass doors to the garden directly); for the retention of the rather interesting 'period' feature of what we now describe as the future cinema room with its concave ceiling and (selection of lighting); for the extra large utility room (with cloakroom suite off) that may be tempting to adapt as dining quarters for two. Then take a look at the size of the two double sized bedrooms (one also with direct garden access); both with comfortable en suite shower rooms.
Best of all, perhaps for many, is the kitchen. A fully equipped kitchen with ample storage units that would make mum and dad feel less like they were down sizing and more like they were Airbnb-ing, quite generously too.
As for the house; well plenty of retained character features: see the end of our slide show of photos as a taster. And accommodation? Just very well proportioned rooms, everywhere, many similarly sized, just typical of its time. Presented over just three floors the house has an enormous amount to offer, to enjoy, to even adapt further perhaps in the future.
The house stands a very easy and relaxed stroll away from the very centre of the village; in fact a couple minutes tops. It's five minutes or so by car to the station (make use of the free parking at either Bidston or Park road North Stations) or to the tunnel for Liverpool and a brisk ten minute walk to either Birkenhead School or BHSA.
