Eldon Street, L3
For Sale: £94,950
Nestled in amongst other local landmarks such as Tobacco Warehouse and Stanley Dock in the Vauxhall area of Liverpool, Eldon Grove has a rich history and strong architectural presence that really makes it stand out.
The New Eldon Grove offers the perfect balance of past and present. The apartments are set within peaceful surroundings, yet on the edge of the vibrant Liverpool city centre, boasting a diverse mix of bars, restaurants, clubs, theatres and shopping to suit every preference.
The New Eldon Grove incorporates the three original blocks, which are Grade II-listed, alongside three new blocks of stylish and contemporary apartments. Carefully designed to preserve the heritage of the site while serving the needs of a new generation, the New Eldon Grove benefits from a community garden and shared landscaping, as well as parking, bike storage, and secured entrance hallways.
The apartments in the original blocks have been re-imagined for 21st century living, with fully modernized fitted kitchens and bathrooms, while benefiting from the character of the Victorian buildings, with mullioned bay windows and their own front doors leading from the external walkways.
We are excited to help revitalise such a beautiful and historic region of Liverpool. The New Eldon Grove is investing in the community and bringing new possibilities to this proud area of the city.
The district of Vauxhall is famous for the Scotland Road running through it, an historic route that stagecoaches took when travelling to and from Scotland. This led to many migrants, including Scottish, Irish and Italian immigrants, making the area home. And with these growing populations, more housing was needed.
Featuring half-timbered gables and large bay windows, Eldon Grove was some of the best pre-war social housing built by the city council. Forming part of a labourers' village, it set a new standard for the whole country and was officially opened by the Countess of Derby in 1912. The layout, with its central square, well-maintained garden and bandstand, along with the chocolate-box look of the buildings, helped create a vibrant community, lifting up some of Liverpool's poorest residents.
Such an important part of local history, Eldon Grove was given grade II-listed status in 1993. Despite a second life as student accommodation, it ultimately left to fall into dilapidation and disrepair. Now it is set to return to its historic routes, becoming the heart of a modern, urban community once again.
