"Grand period properties of this calibre rarely come to market, the location and grounds are superb and it lies within easy reach of both Liverpool and Chester City centres."

The house is such a rarity that the closest property on the market that boasts a similar six bedroom residence is almost four miles away and costs more than £1.5 million on Brimstage Road.

According to Rightmove, another similar property, five miles away on Knowsley Road is listed for sale for just shy of a million at £999,999.

The property is significantly less expensive at £750,000, but that price may reflect that the home is in need of some improvement.

According to the estate agents, it requires ‘some general improvement and modernisation’ but it has the potential to be a ‘magnificent family home.’

Hart and Co believe that this property has much appeal to developers who are looking to take on the project of an ‘impressive period property.’

Highlights of the property include dual access driveway, a huge garden surrounded by mature trees and shrub borders and ‘handsome’ original period features including marble fireplaces.

Images on Rightmove show, that from the outset the property boasts grand fittings with steps leading to entrance with minton style tiled flooring and double doors with stained glass panels leading to the hall.

Inside the hall is decorated with a 'beautiful' coved ceiling with a central staircase leading to the first floor.

The flower ground floor spans the length of the property and has been divided into four rooms with a mixture of bay and front facing windows, including a bathroom.

These four basements rooms are in addition to the six bedrooms on the upper floor.
