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.
