A lack of internal shots with this place, but this 1930 art deco property in Caldy, Wirral, Merseyside really does scream potential.
You will find it in what’s described as the ‘highly sought after’ area of Caldy, on the outskirts of West Kirby and sat in a large plot. You get around an acre of land with this one, so peace and seclusion likely to be a selling point too.
But plots and location are only part of the story. I am interested in the house, which seems to be a fairly untouched piece of art deco architecture.
Caldy was apparently a farming area until the start of the 20th century, before being rebuilt as a model estate by the appropriately named Caldy Manor Estates Company in 1905. The result was imposing detached Arts and Crafts style houses (many of which are still around) and later, this particular property.
As I said earlier, it is a little frustrating that we don’t really have any internal shots of this one, but that might actually be a positive (if that makes sense).
According to the agent, the house is ‘in need of renovation’ and as such, might well have some of those highly sought after period features still in place. That is just a guess though. It could be some kind of of 1980s hell inside, but without a viewing, it is hard to tell. If you are a potential buyer and in the area, do let me know if you view.
What it does have is what seems to be an untouched structure (with the probably exception of the windows), one with a wonderful sun room and roof terrace, both offering some stunning views over the gardens and beyond. I’m pretty sure that alone will sell the place.
It isn’t short of space either. The property has a large reception hall, a ‘through’ living room, dining room, garden room, morning room, kitchen, shower room and WC.
Head upstairs for the first floor landing, four good sized bedrooms (one opening onto the roof terrace) and a bathroom. Access to the sun room is from the landing which in turn opens to that amazing and large roof terrace.
As I said, around one acre of land, with the gardens including an orchard, vegetable garden and large formal lawned areas. You also get a detached timber pool room with ‘endless pool’, sauna and shower, as well as an in and out driveway, garage and out house with utility room, boiler/drying room and WC.
So a lot of house, which may or may not need work inside. Make up your own mind with a viewing as long as you have something like £800,000 to spare.
