The opportunity has arisen to buy a property that has a long history in a South Liverpool park.

Dating back to 1863, the four bedroom property is nestled within the grounds of Camp Hill and Woolton Wood.

The Grade II listed house, on Hillfoot Road, Hunts Cross, is on the market for £650,000.

It's described as being 'unique' for many reasons, one of which is its location, and another is its 'beautiful' architecture.

Highlights of the property include a large garden that overlooks the grounds and its closeness to handy transport links (it's just 0.5mile away from Hunts Cross train station.)

Jenny Collings, local property expert for Purplebricks said: “This beautiful and unique home has a Jacobian entrance to the property, is very private and retains many original features.

“It’s set in such tranquil surroundings, which are so relaxing, especially in the evening.

“It’s a short walk through the park to the small village of Woolton, where there are plenty of pubs and restaurants, and is ideally placed to access the airport, railway networks and major motorways.”

Images on the Purplebricks website show that the seller has extended the bedrooms and kitchen to the back and has added two bedrooms and en-suite bathroom.

Despite recent renovations, the property has retained many of its original features, giving the house plenty of charm and character.

‘Sympathetic upgrades’ include colourful stained glass windows installed and rooms designed around original exposed brick and arches.

The property has also been fitted with ‘top specification’ fixtures including a fully integrated kitchen and ‘stylish’ tiled bathrooms.

Upon entering the property through a grand sandstone open porch, with Jacobean features, guests are greeted with a reception hallway which is also used as a sitting room.

It is centred around a multi-fuel stove and a bay window that looks out over the front.

On the ground floor there’s also a further reception room to the side with another feature fireplace.

This leads onto the 'hub of the house' - a remarkable open plan kitchen/dining/family room.

There’s also a Juliette balcony in the main bedroom, as well as a further double also having Juliette balcony.

An impressive feature is the shared family wet-room and toilet, that has exposed roof tiles a feature that is also to be found in the en-suite.
