Trendy development in Liverpool regeneration area perfect for first-time buyers


Thursday 11th October 2012

The 'Milton' is available from £95, 995

While the term regeneration area often puts house hunters off, there is no doubt money goes a lot further within these zones. Liverpool has been a little slower than it’s north western counterpart Manchester when it comes to regeneration, however the city council are making up for lost time by pumping funds into a range of former run-down areas. One of the selected, is the inner city area of Kensington.

Only a 10 minute walk from the buzzing centre, which is still thriving from its spate as Culture Capital of the year, Kensington has always been popular for students due to its proximity to University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University. The Kensington Court development by Lovell has appealed to these students, as well as local residents and people who have previously lived in the area. Situated a stones throw away from a bus stop which whizzes you into the centre, the development is on a main commuter road and has its very own row of shops and restaurants on the doorstep.

The development is a mix of privately owned and social housing. It is accessed from both of the main roads in Kensington, however there is no through road stopping people using it as a short cut. The streets have been designed in the Home Zone style which splits the road from the pavement in a natural way, with planters and parking bays cutting into the street, to lower the speed drivers can travel at.

The ‘Milton’, a two-bedroom home on two floors, is a popular choice with first-time buyers. Priced at just under £100,000, Lovell offer six different incentives to make this property even more affordable including 5% Deposit Paid, Bank and Build, where buyers reserve their plot and save while waiting, and the shared equity scheme. Lovell will also throw in a free furniture pack, for shared equity customers, and a welcome pack on move in day with new home essentials like cleaning products and dish towels.

The properties have their own private, turfed, gardens, with a shed and rain water harvester, a WC downstairs, fully-fitted kitchen, with a choice of different Symphony Group units and Bosch appliances, and a spacious lounge/kitchen area  with two large windows drenching the room in light. There is a door leading out into the garden via the lounge.  On the first floor, the spacious family bathroom has Kohler sanitary ware and Porcelanosa tiles. The two bedrooms are spacious enough for free standing furniture and have floor to ceiling windows.

The ‘Milton’ has a mono-pitch roof, along with five other property types within the development, to make the development stand out from the surrounding tenement streets. Heritage building materials, red stock brick, have also been used in the properties to make sure the homes don’t stand out too much.

Alongside the ‘Milton’, which starts at £95, 995, there are also three-bedroom houses available at Kensington Court from £125, 995.
