An unusual historic cottage in the middle of a dual carriageway has gone on sale for more than £400,000.
The 185-year old cottage is something of a local landmark in Liverpool, and has just gone on the market.
On the market with Marshall Property for £425,000, the on Menlove Avenue property is unlike anything else on sale in Merseyside, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Marshall Property said the cottage is ‘loaded with potential’ and ‘waiting to be transformed’ and offers a rare opportunity to add value to a period home
The dual carriageway is a busy road through the Calderstones area of the city – and certainly not the place you’d expect to find a quaint period cottage.
The cottage has nearly 200 years of history, dating back to approximately 1836 according to an online listing.
Boasting three bedrooms and an open-plan downstairs layout, the property has two living and dining areas with potential for development.
The property retains a number of original period features, like the stone framed windows, high ceilings and double-sided fireplace.
Upstairs, the master bedroom comes with its own ensuite bathroom, with a further two bedrooms on the first floor.
An online listing uploaded to property website RightMove describes the cottage as ‘loaded with potential and waiting to be transformed’.
It says the property offers ‘a rare opportunity to add value to a period home’ thanks to the potential for house-hunters to make it their own.
