Award-winning Scandinavian-inspired home on exclusive road for sale

An award-winning property has hit the market in Merseyside, in one of the region’s most expensive areas.

The five-bedroom detached house is on Shireburn Road, Freshfield, nicknamed Millionaires’ Row. The street regularly features on the Land Registry as having the most expensive property sales, thanks to the number of exclusive homes on the road.

Jurgen Klopp, Wayne Rooney, John Parrott and Brendan Rodgers have all lived in the area over the years due to the tree-lined private roads. Built in 2015, this Shireburn Road home is described as “architecturally inspiring” and features subtle Scandinavian designs.

The house has been nominated for numerous building awards, including architectural categories at the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) awards. Commenting on the development, the RIBA Jury said: “The resulting villa is essentially modernist, but with subtle Scandinavian undertones with an eerie client-provided sense of ‘home’ within a geometric architectural framework.

According to estate agents Stephanie Macnab, who listed the property, judges went on to say the house was “an elegant, free-flowing house of generous proportions that is surprisingly unassuming”.

Shedkm Architects designed the house, in conjunction with the current owners, who describe it as “a home for an art lover”. Images on Rightmove show the property from the outside and offer a glimpse of the kitchen through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

“Once inside these walls you will be struck by the generous driveway and beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the property, lending an air of tranquility and privacy.” See more images and property information at Move right here.
