Pugin designed 14,000 square foot mansion with two panic rooms for rent in Liverpool; its décor leaves a lot to be desired but it does come with a beer pump
A gaudily decorated Grade II* listed mansion in Childwall, Liverpool complete with not just one, but two panic rooms has been placed on the rental market for the somewhat ambitious sum of £9,000 per month ($12,000, €10,800 or درهم44,200).
Formerly known as St Joseph’s during its time as a nursing home, Oswaldcroft was subject to an attempt to convert it into 22 homes in 2013. This planning application was refused and subsequently the building reverted to use as a single residence.
Set on a plot of 0.65 acres and built in 1865 to designs by Augustus Pugin (1812 – 1852), Oswaldcroft includes 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 2 kitchens (one with a beer pump). It has a cinema room, a gym, an infra-red sauna, a 6-person hot tub, a lift to all floors, air conditioning, CCTV system, mobile panic activation and panic rooms en-suite to its two main bedrooms.
Marketed by Denton Clark as having been “modernised throughout to a beautiful eloquent standard,” interested parties would be advised to put on their sunglasses: The décor is anything but neutral.
Wrecking ball urgently required!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a shithole!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!! Just save the beer pump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wtf. The Victorian Society got the authorities to deny the right to convert into flats so instead we ended up with this decor? What was their reasoning?
There’s quite a few historic buildings that have been converted into flats. Couldn’t a buyer have another try?
What gross decor, and no wonder it’s got panic rooms in that part of the world. Sorry I wouldn’t live there if you paid me, and that bloody accent, can’t stand it.
@Dodge It’s actually impressive how stupid people like you can be in this day and age, it’s like you’re so ignorant that you’re scared of Googling what you think and being proven wrong. Childwall is an affluent suburb southeast of Liverpool. It’s not some rundown cesspool in the north end.
These suburbs are some of the most prestigious and are highly sought after. And just in case you’re too lazy/ignorant to Google this (you definitely are), you should know that the “bloody accent” you’re thinking of is prevalent in the north end/rundown areas only.
In the southern suburbs, it’s a lot closer to Paul McCartney’s accent – I’m using the Beatles as an example to make it easier for you because they’re from the south suburbs, but mostly because you seem like the kind of person who knows nothing of the city except for a the chorus of “Yellow Submarine” and outdated Harry Enfield sketches. Now crawl back into your little Tory constituency.
