Grade II Listed Medieval House, Wirral

Grade II Listed Medieval House, Wirral

This fascinating property has been the subject of much historical research over the years including a BBC television program that attempted to unravel the history of the property.

NPA was instructed by a private client in early 2020 to undertake a listed building survey prior to their purchase of the property. The first thing that strikes you about the building is the pattern of fenestration which would definitely be off-putting if you are a fan of Georgian symmetry. The building has a medieval core with a substantial C17 makeover, C19 additions and was originally the local Manor House. The interior of this building is what really makes the building so unusual, there are 13 separate floor levels and no two rooms are on the same level. Buildings such as this are complex and you really have to be on your toes to understand how and why the numerous alterations have taken place.
