Liverpool's leafy southern suburb of Woolton is full of historic properties - and this family home is no exception.

Situation on Woolton Park, just across the road from Reynolds Park, this property is set in a quiet enclave of the city.

With only a handful of neighbouring properties, this four-bedroom home offers a secluded and tranquil escape from the outside world.

And it's been around for a very long time - built between 1840 and 1850, with a host of charming original features.

Looking at it from the outside, this property looks totally traditional with its old stone walls and quaint cottage feel.

From the charming porch at the front entrance to the sunken garden accessed through an old stone archway, you can practically feel the history of this property.

But stepping inside, the interior design scheme could not be more modern - and it's a world away from the historic exterior of this family home.

On the market with Abode's Allerton office, this L25 property is priced at a whopping £875,000.

It's no secret that homes in Woolton come at a premium, and you'll certainly need deep pockets if you want to call this sought-after suburb 'home'.

But the hefty price tag is also down to the painstaking renovation work that's gone into transforming this old fashioned cottage into a modern home.

The government has urged people not to move house to try to limit the spread of coronavirus across the UK.

Buyers and renters should delay moving while emergency stay-at-home measures are in place, it said.

The ECHO will continue to feature properties that are being marketed for sale while these emergency measures are in place, but fully supports the steps being taken by the government to stop the spread of the virus.

While there is no need to pull out of transactions, the UK government stated buyers and sellers should follow guidance to stay at home and away from others at all times.

If a property is vacant, people can continue with the transaction, although they must ensure they are following guidelines with regards to home removals.

But if the house is occupied, the government has encouraged all parties to do all they can to amicably agree alternative dates to move.

With this in mind, properties will continue to be featured by the ECHO, as they are still listed for sale by agents across Merseyside.

Photos uploaded to Zoopla offer a glimpse at the inside of 'Tower Cottage', which is a Grade II listed building.

Built in the mid-19th century, it has been fully renovated to give a contemporary design scheme, with some stunning original features maintained.

An open plan kitchen and dining area centres around a huge island, with a black Aga for cooking family feasts.

Perhaps one of the most impressive areas of this substantial family home is the master suite, laid out across the top floor with a dressing room and skylights offering natural light.

This property was listed for sale on Monday, March 23 and was last sold in 2018 when it fetched a much more modest £275,000.
