THE breathtaking Victorian mansion personified the spirit of the ’60s through its philosophy of communal living, open parties and art exhibitions.
But now Ullet Grange, the only intact property of its kind in Sefton Park, is up for sale and, with 30 rooms on four floors, is a bargain at just under £1m.
And while there are other special properties in Liverpool that give us a glimpse into the city’s past, Ullet Grange remains unspoilt, retaining all its original features and Victorian splendour.
With views towards Sefton Park at the front and Princes Park at the back, such is the beauty of this Grade-II listed building that commercial developers who have viewed the property have said they do not want to be the ones responsible for turning this home into 11 apartments.
This is welcome news to part-owner Michael Howson, who for 25 years ran it as a communal house, organising a number of benefit parties at the property and opening the doors to the community to use its rooms as venues for meetings, yoga classes and Chi Gung sessions. more
