Shopping, socialising and eating locally are increasingly popular and with a move to Aigburth Grange in South Liverpool you can do all that and more close to home.
The Elan Homes development is located just off Aigburth Road, which offers a long strip of restaurants, takeaways and stores and is a hive of activity with a real community feel.
Many of the businesses in the neighbourhood are independent, family-run operations – including the Bread Shop and Bakery, family-owned since 1958.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Independent businesses really do add value to an area both economically and socially, helping shape the character of the neighbourhood and adding to the sense of community.
“The local offer in Aigburth really is outstanding – it has a vibrant village feel with almost everything residents could need right on their doorstep. Foodies will be right at home here as there’s a choice of bakeries, delis and organic food shops, plus coffee shops, restaurants and takeaways for those days when you don’t feel like cooking. There’s even an interior design store so that you can style your home to your personal taste. Plus, if you really do need to hit the high street, Liverpool city centre is just a few miles away.”
Aigburth Grange is also conveniently close to the bohemian culture of Lark Lane and the magnificent 235 acre, historic Sefton Park.
It’s a great place to raise a family as St Michael in the Hamlet Primary and St Charles Roman Catholic Primary, are both nearby. While, the choice of secondaries in the wider area includes The Blue Coat School, plus St Margaret’s Academy, Belvedere Academy and Liverpool College
Aigburth Grange offers two, three and four-bedroom homes, with prices from £204,995.
