Redrow converts historic listed building in Liverpool into a trio of homes
Fremont House has been returned to its former glory with period features including bay windows and detailed architraves
Housebuilder Redrow has transformed a Grade II-listed building in Liverpool into a pair of three-bedroom houses and a two-bedroom duplex apartment.
Fremont House, an historic lodge house, is located in the grounds of the former Holly Lodge Girls’ College in West Derby. It has been returned to its former glory with smart painted brickwork and a pillared entrance porch. Inside, period features include bay windows and detailed architraves.
However, the old has been blended seamlessly with the new homes offering a range of modern conveniences. Catherine Lacey, senior residential sales and lettings valuer at Sutton Kersh, who are marketing the properties on behalf of Redrow Homes, said: “Fremont House offers the opportunity to purchase a piece of West Derby’s history.
“Redrow Homes have carried out an amazing refurbishment programme, breathing new life into the historic mansion house. Stepping over the threshold plate, you are transported into another world of exquisite period features, blending seamlessly with modern conveniences.
“The high ceilings, splendid staircase and mosaic entrance vestibule in The Hayworth are among the many features that have been retained.”
The Mellor, priced at £375,000 is a three-bedroom duplex with a private entrance with an open-plan kitchen and dining area; The Heyworth, priced at £400,000 has an L-shaped entrance hall, dual aspect lounge, and open plan kitchen/dining room; The Sandfield, is a two-bedroom apartment, with a private entrance and two floors of living space, priced at £190,000.
“The properties are unique”, added Catherine. “I have been selling property in West Derby Village for over 30 years, and Fremont House is a hidden gem.”
