Although property prices in neighbouring Allerton and Woolton are considerably higher, the residents of Aigburth have access to some beautiful properties that are more affordable and yet, are still within the grasps of the leafy and plush scenery that is iconic to Liverpool’s south. Parts of Aigburth surround the historic Victorian gem of Sefton Park, where striking properties line the wide leafy streets that remain unadopted, adding to its air of old-school exclusivity away from an outsider’s influence. Of an evening, residents often take to the park to enjoy jogging or walking around its quiet perimeter.
Separated from the city centre by just five miles, the commute is relatively short and easy, with just one long road from the beginning of Aigburth into the heart of Liverpool’s Strand Street. This great location from the city makes it a popular place for city workers to set up home, taking advantage of the area’s great public transport options from trains and buses to the City Ride Bicycles.
With house prices being lower than other areas of the aspirational South Liverpool and being surrounded by some top-performing schools, Aigburth is an attractive place for buyers who want to enjoy the fruitful beauty of one of the greenest areas of the city.
Sudley House, built in the 19th century, was the home of Nicholas Robinson, a Mayor of Liverpool and successful Corn Merchant. It is now a museum where guests can see the art collection from George Holt, a keen art collector and former resident of the house.
