In fact, we have featured two examples from this notable mini estate, which can be found here and here. All can be found on Hamilton Close, a group of five distinct properties dating back to 1965. I would have used the word ‘affordable’ a few years back, but prices are on the rise.

Saying that, this corner of the Wirral is still affordable compared to many of the properties we feature on these page, so this might well appeal to a good many of you.

The house here, which is apparently available with no ongoing chain, definitely needs some work to bring it back to its best. But on the plus side, this looks pretty much in its original state.

Bold design, large windows, exposed brick, period staircase, even some of the furnishings are from the original era. But there is probably a need to clear out a few things to see it at its best and maybe update some areas, not least the kitchen. Look at the photos, you can see what is needed here.

As for space, the entrance hall with storage and the staircase leads to a WC, the lounge with garden access and a dining room with sliding door access to the lounge, which creates an open-plan, L-shaped room. The kitchen is also on this floor.
