A ‘beautiful’ period property has come on the market in Liverpool that’s hidden behind mature trees and bushes.
The six bedroom semi-detached is just a seconds away from Sefton Park, on Lancaster Avenue, Aigburth.
Spread across four floors, the home also comes with a detached garage that has enough parking for up to three cars.
While it may be hard to tell from the outside, thanks to it being secluded by trees, the property has steps up to the doorway and is fronted with large bay windows.
It is listed for £599,950 but estate agents Atlas say this property is an ‘excellent opportunity’ for someone who wishes to add value.
There is potential for change of use of the property subject to planning permission.
Properties in Aigburth had an overall average price of £252,182 in the last year.
Most of the properties sold in the area in the last 12 months were terraced houses, selling for an average of £228,476.
After that, flats fetched an average of £162,204, with semi-detached properties selling for £327,043.

Images on Rightmove show that the property features plenty of original period features, including stained glass windows, ornate coving and ceiling roses.
The rooms in the home also benefit from the characteristic high ceilings and large windows which are common in older homes. Many of the rooms also feature original fireplaces.
The ground floor has a spacious hallway with an entrance vestibule which leads onto three reception rooms, a kitchen, family bathroom and separate utility room.
To the first floor are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a large storage cupboard which has potential to be a home office or small play room.
The bathroom is tiled from bottom to top and boasts two sinks and a large walk in waterfall shower.
The attic floor has two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is also a fully height cellar suitable for conversion.
The back garden is similar to the front with plenty of mature trees and plants.

The garden is a mixture of lawn and patio and also has a central pond.
The Atlas listing reads: “A beautiful Victorian semi detached house benefiting from an abundance of original character features.
