North West’s Largest Independent Estate Agent

With a name that originates from the Anglo-Saxon word “Bold” meaning “Dwelling”, Bootle’s history was written out long before it became the town that it is today.

Located north of the city, the area’s rich history in trade has carved out a landscape that is distinctly different from the rest of Liverpool’s residential dwellings. It is where cosmopolitan commerce meets traditional trade, housed in an array of buildings from old warehouses to high rise offices. This diverse scene is reflected in the properties and prospective residents can choose from traditional Victorian villas to new builds, flats and terrace houses. 

The ghostly waves of the city’s maritime success have gently flowed up the iconic River Mersey and into the docks of Bootle. For residents of the town, passing the gigantic cargo ships has become so habitual that it is easy to forget that it continues to be a global port. Bootle itself is part of the Atlantic Gateway, a North West development to attract investment and growth in freight and logistics. So important is the area in developing maritime trade, that it is helping to rebalance the British economy.  

With such prosperity predicted within the next few years, fuelled by the commercial ventures on the docks and development plans from the local council, Bootle has become a popular area for property investment. Attracted by the lower house prices and exciting projects planned, many purchase the homes with the intention of letting them out to tenants who want to take advantage of the fantastic transport links into the city centre.
