This is the first in an occasional series of articles of personal observations on the many and varied attributes of the wonderful Wirral Peninsular.
Being a ‘scouser’ and having spent the last 13 years living and working in the constantly hot and humid climate of Singapore, I find it a joy and welcome relief on my frequent return visits home to the Wirral to experience the changes in the seasons……usually all in the same day!!
The Wirral Peninsula is known by some as The Dormitory of Liverpool or Little Surrey in some cases
Known by some as ‘The Dormitory of Liverpool’, allowing business folk to quickly escape the city rigours into a more rural environment, or, ‘Little Surrey’ due to the beautiful properties of the more wealthy residents, the Wirral offers many interesting facets of which I will expand on throughout the series.
Some background on what constitutes ‘The Wirral Peninsular’. Firstly, what is a peninsular? It is a piece of land that is bordered by water on 3 sides and in this case the River Mersey to the east and River Dee on the west, merging with the outflow to the Irish Sea fit the description.
Covering an area of just over 60 square miles, it is fascinating just how much there is to see, whether inland or coastal and particularly if you are a walker (as I am) or as a cyclist (as I sometimes am!). We have the more urbanised areas such as Wallasey, Birkenhead, Bromborough & Ellesmere Port, to the more rural environment offered by such as Hoylake, West Kirby, Caldy, Heswall, Brimstage & Thornton Hough.
Wallasey and recollections of the ferry from Liverpool to New Brighton
Let’s start our journey at Wallasey at the north end of the peninsular, where I have spent most of my married life. Being originally from a Liverpool inner city environment I guess my earliest recollections are in getting the ferry from Liverpool to New Brighton, Wallasey, (when there was still a pier) for a day out on the beach and getting a thick ear for challenging a fairground attendant who I accused of slightly bending the barrel of an air rifle, making it impossible for me to win the typical prize of a teddy bear! Also, the many great times spent swimming and sunbathing in the magnificent open-air Derby and New Brighton pools.
Once the pier was demolished, the loss was somewhat mitigated by being able to take the ferry from Liverpool’s Pier Head to Seacombe in Wallasey and in enjoying a, usually bracing, walk up the promenade. Alternatively, you could get the train straight in to New Brighton….but that cost a bit more.
The renaissance of New Brighton with the Marine Point Development
Today, New Brighton is going through somewhat of a renaissance and, with it, a return of the day-tripper.
With the newly built and very well appointed Floral Pavilion theatre, coupled to an eight screen cinema, casino, hotel, bars and restaurants plus the Marine Lake for different sailing experiences as well as a super and newly opened crazy golf course along with other children’s amusements, New Brighton is certainly going to continue its positive growth to the benefit of all.
However, we should not just concentrate on the sea front activities but also note the facilities about 250 metres ‘up the hill’ around Victoria Road with its shops, cafes and two highly rated restaurants in ‘The Peninsular’ and ‘Olive Tree’. Both well worth a visit.
Good local pubs in New Brighton
With the decline in pubs, for beer drinkers, there is the rare opportunity to have three bars, namely; ‘The Perch Rock’, ‘The Harbour’ (was ‘The Commercial’) & ‘The Railway’, sitting in the same street off Victoria Road; each no more that 5-10 metres walk from each other and each offering a different atmosphere. Of these three bars, my particular favourite is ‘The Perch Rock’, a true community pub with an alluring décor stuck somewhere in the 70’s (much like me I think!). Oh, and the beer in all of them is good and reasonably priced.
New Brighton promenade for walking, cycling and fabulous sunsets
As I conclude this initial article, let me mention, for the more energetic walker (or cyclist), the promenade walk from New Brighton that takes you around the northern tip of the peninsular up to Wallasey Golf Club (the ‘home’ of golf’s Stableford Rules) and beyond, all the way up through Moreton, Meols and out to Hoylake & West Kirby.
How beautiful, either of an early morning or as the sun sets, to look out to sea beyond St George’s Channel to the Irish Sea. How lucky we are to witness the tide ebbing and flowing, particularly in stormy weather and to be close to nature at its best. That, for me, encapsulates the spirit of Wirral and I look forward to sharing more of my personal impressions with you in coming articles.
What recollections do you have of the north end of the Wirral Peninsula?
Guest Blog Post by Terry Malone.
Downsizing your home can be due to a number of reasons. One of the main reasons for downsizing is because what used to be your family home is now too big as your offspring have flown the nest. Options available include sheltered housing and independent living.
Downsizing to find new housing for over 50s, 55s, 60s, 70s and beyond
It is more common with the older generation to downsize homes. There is a varied age range. You could be downsizing and finding new housing in your 50s, 60s, 70s or even 80s and beyond. A lot will depend on when you started your family and when your offspring decided to leave the family home. If you are in this situation or you are looking to move your parents out of the family home it will be a hard time. The family home will contain many memories and it will be hard to let go of when downsizing. However, this time of your life should be embraced. It’s a great opportunity to find a new home with a fantastic community spirit. There are plenty of homes including sheltered accommodation for the over 50s, over 55s, over 60s and even for the over 70s and beyond.
Options available when downsizing your home
When you look around you will see there are many options available when you’re downsizing your home. There are plenty of fantastic new developments offering independent living. This could be through sheltered accommodation or social housing. It could even be a specific retirement village of flats, apartments or bungalows. When you are choosing to move home and downsize it is important you have your own criteria checklist. It is also important to try and meet residents of property developments you are interested in. That way you can find out first hand what it’s like to live there.
Make sure you have a downsizing checklist to find your next home
Like any house move it’s a big decision so it’s important you know what you are looking for. Depending on your circumstances the criteria will differ. It could be you are more interested in the social aspect of your next move. Or you want to be close to your family. It can be a pretty long list. Either way you should approach downsizing with excitement. It’s a new beginning and a chance to meet new people and make new friends.
So there’s a house in probate, what does this mean? It’s always hard to deal with when a loved one dies. Not just emotionally dealing with the loss of someone close to you, but also dealing with what they’ve left behind.
Plenty to do when dealing with a house in probate
There’ll be plenty to do when dealing with a house in probate. It’s pretty much the same things you need to do when you move house. However, the difference is you are sorting it out on behalf of a loved one who is no longer around. It is an extremely difficult time for all those who have to deal with this for a loved one. However, it’s important to ensure you get all relevant affairs in order.
Probate services for property
It is useful to speak with your solicitor to understand what’s involved and the probate services they offer. A lot will depend on what needs to happen with a property in probate. It may be the property needs to be sold, in which case you may need to consider decluttering and house clearance services. Depending on the state of the property you may decide to look at getting some interior design work done before it goes on the market.
Dealing with a house in probate could take time
If you are buying a property through probate you will need to understand that it could take a good amount of time to sort out the legalities before it finally becomes your home. However, on the plus side it could be a great way to get a bargain.
Even if a house is in probate it doesn’t mean it will be sold. For those taking it on you may still wish to put your own stamp on the property. So it may be that you still need to consider getting rid of clutter and doing the house clearance anyway. Each situation is different and it will depend on individuals and their thoughts and ideas on what to do with the property.
Factors to consider if there is a house in probate
There are many factors to consider if there’s a house in probate. There may be numerous beneficiaries so they will each have their own view around what they want to happen to the property.
Have you bought a house that was being sold through probate? Or have you been through the process of selling a house in probate? Get in touch and us know what your experiences of the process were.
We attended the First Time Buyers Show in Liverpool a few weeks ago. The event appeared to be a great success. Despite the snow there were plenty of first time buyers visiting the various stands and taking part in the discussions with various professionals.
First Time Buyers Show and the launch of Help to Buy
Days before the event the government announced a new scheme which builds on the FirstBuy scheme. The Help to Buy scheme started on 1st April 2013. The government are proactively looking to help first time buyers get on to the first rung of the property ladder. It was interesting listening to some of the questions prospective home buyers had at the show. There were certainly plenty of experts on hand ranging from HomesHub the organisers of this event who promote affordable home ownership in Merseyside and Cheshire through to Solicitors, Mortgage Advisors and House Builders. So plenty of different people for potential first time buyers to speak to.
First time buyers checklist and knowing what you can afford
As a first time buyer it is important you are aware of the processes involved in purchasing your first home. Take a look at our first time buyer checklist post to give you an understanding of the different things you will need to consider when buying your first house. It is important that you are aware about what’s involved. For those of you who are interested we have pulled together a first time buyer checklist which highlights what’s involved. So do contact us if you’d like us to email you a copy.
It was great that the professional services you will need to speak to, Mortgage/ Financial Advisors and Solicitors, were at the first time buyers show in Liverpool to talk through the process. Before any prospective first time buyer even contemplates looking for a property they should know what they are able to afford. So Mortgage Brokers and Financial Advisors should be the first people you speak to before you start your property search.
