Properties within the Conservation area of Mount Wood constitute a fairly eclectic mix of styles, the earliest dating back circa 1872 - 1900, with The White House being characterised as an Arts and Crafts property. The architects involved at this time, Messrs Briggs, Wolstenholme and Thornley designed houses including The White House as well as other properties along Golf Links Road and Pine Walks. The White House stands out in particular, we are sure you will agree, not least for its substantial garden plot, handsome exterior and especially for its rear garden facing balcony....

The balcony was apparently designed within what was and still of course can be a first floor sitting room; to be able to step outside and enjoy the late afternoon sun. (given the size of garden plot, sunshine is appreciated throughout the day as the sun moves around the garden, interspersed by the mottled shadows of distant trees.
There's a floor plan below for you to study and you'll see from our photo slide-show that this room is currently used as the master bedroom suite - and some suite in size it is too.
At ground floor there are three reception rooms, two have the option of separating with double folding back doors.
The kitchen is a true family sized breakfast room with double opening doors direct to the rear garden. There's a separate utility and cloakroom suite too found off the most attractive and most welcoming of halls.
Up towards first floor and passed the master bedroom at mezzanine level and with bathroom facilities across the landing and up to two further bedrooms; up one more floor and there are three more. All good proportions, as you'll see from our floor plan.
Ornate cornice ceiling plaster work with signs of the Zodiac, a handsome oak staircase, a few original windows retained for their character (although most windows replaced in matching pvc in 2017); Arts & Craft doors, some hand painted, other stripped, run throughout The White House and in addition to the balcony, there are further selection of 'period' features to look out for.
With regards to the outdoors, we believe our photos tell more than words....apart from the long tandem length garage which is out of shot.
Midway between Wirral Grammar for boys and girls and Birkenhead School (co-ed), BHSA (girls), St Anselm's (boys) and Birkenhead Sixth Form College, The White House stands on a commanding plot to the top side of Burrell Road. You'll find access to the tunnel for city work even less time again if you don't need to drop the kids off; the M53 is about the same: five to ten minutes. For Sat Nav: CH42 8NH
