Overall selling prices at Calderstones over the past year were similar to the previous year and up 9% from the 2018 peak of £395,293. Pictures on Rightmove show the house has a large double-door entrance that leads into an “amazing hall and foyer”.
It has many luxurious features, including porcelain tiles, a chandelier, and a glass balcony that set the tone for the entire property, which boasts “carefully thought-out architecture.” On the ground floor there are numerous family rooms and the first of five bedrooms.
The main living area overlooks the front garden of the property and has a multi-fuel log burner, which helps to create a cozy atmosphere. Adjacent is a family entertainment room.
An open concept layout allows for plenty of space in the kitchen/dining area. The fitted fitted kitchen has been made to measure and has an island, two ovens, two dishwashers, two warming drawers and a hot water tap.
From the kitchen, aluminum folding doors lead out to the rear garden space, which would allow for alfresco dining in the warmer months. This area also has a separate laundry room and bathroom.
The first floor mezzanine leads to the remaining four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Some of the double bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms. While the two master bedrooms each come with their own bespoke storage designs.
The Entwistle Green listing reads: ‘We proudly present a fine example of modern brilliance combined with carefully thought out architecture and design in the form of a five bedroom detached luxury property in the highly regarded suburb of Mossley Hill L18 Liverpool Merseyside.
“The property is located on the much sought after Menlove Avenue, surrounded by an array of greenery and idyllic views facing Calderstones Park.
“The fine craftsmanship of the property can be clearly noticed upon arrival, where you are presented with manicured gardens that sit behind the walls, shaped by a paved pathway designed with stamped concrete leading to the grand entrance with a porch covered.”
