We are delighted to offer to the market this beautiful Victorian river front residence, built in 1840 and offering lots of character and charm through-out. This home has views to the river and to the park and is situated along a quiet, private gated road, that is set within a conservation area. All properties situated on the river that are located on the private road, such as Ashlea, own up to the water’s edge, that’s 23 properties in total. Ashlea is truly unique and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
This property is located within a conservation area and has access to the Wirral Circular Trail, the park and views to the river. The property as well as being steeped in historical features and offering a tranquil and peaceful setting, is also well located for access to Liverpool town centre, and transport links to the motorway networks, train and ferry routes.
This home is situated on the river in a Victorian park setting affording stunning views of the park and shoreline that even features two sandy beach areas which locals have summer barbeques on. These magnificent homes rarely come up for sale. This splendid semi-detached home is in a conservation area on a private gated road.
The Park has a covenant attached to it restricting its use solely for public access and therefore the views from the house, both front and back can never be spoilt.

Seller’s Thoughts ….
Built in the 1800’s, the current owner has carefully considered and spent a great deal of time restoring this home to its former glory.
Set upon the banks of the River Mersey, it truly is a spectacular spot. "I was seeking a home that was a Victorian property based on a river front, with access to North wales and within a 30 minute drive of the two airports Liverpool and Manchester which I can only describe as I’ll know it when I see it", and upon walking into the hallway of this property, it was a done deal!" This sentiment can be truly appreciated when viewing this beautiful home.
"The vendor of this home says it is peaceful and tranquil like a hidden away Oasis and It has a magic and feel all of its own. Its historical presence and tranquil setting, accompanied by views looking out to the River Mersey, reflect the great importance that Rock Ferry once had".
"The rooms are elegant, light and airy, another great feature that made this purchase so right for me. Although secluded and tranquil, I feel safe and secure here".
"I purchased this property from a barrister, the father of whom was an architect. He designed the decking at the bottom of the garden, it is the only house with a raised decked area, enjoying the stunning views beyond. The garage to the side of the property has a glass roof, another feature designed by the previous owner’s father, for him to use as his studio".
"The kitchen, you will notice, has the sink situated in the centre island, looking out towards the sea. The previous owner had this as a design feature so he could view his yacht while washing the dishes! An interesting point which again brings the history of this home to life".
