A radical new type of housing is set to come to Wirral this spring.

Housing provider Urban Splash is bringing homes which can be customised by their owners at Wirral Waters’ East Float development.

East Float, a project by Urban Splash and Peel L&P, will create around 350 homes using a “bold and innovative” new approach.

Included in this figure is the colourful red-clad Row House homes, the first of which will launch for sale this spring.

This is just one part of Wirral Waters, with the overall project set to provide 13,500 homes over the next 25 years and potentially create up to 20,000 jobs.

Buyers of Row House homes will be able to choose from a range of options, including a rooftop terrace, to make their home their own.

Guy Ackernley, residential sales director at House by Urban Splash, said: “We are delighted to release another bold and innovative new housing typology – and are proud to be bringing it first to Merseyside.

“Urban Splash was founded in Merseyside, creating hundreds of thousands of square feet of workspace as well as city centre apartments in Liverpool.

“28 years on we’re immensely proud to be back in the region, introducing a totally new concept – just as we did back in the 1990s.”

Row House represents a modern mews house, or ‘Urban Cottage’, priced affordably, meaning more people can get on the housing ladder with a home customised to meet their needs.

Mr Ackernley added: “This product challenges design convention and something we believe will redefine the concept of new build living – we’re creating a series of homes which combine state-of-the-art materials and construction with a lifestyle enhancing design.”

Row House comes in a choice of three sizes with the same footprint; two storey, two and a half storey with a roof terrace, and three storey, with a master suite.

Layouts can all be customised by the buyer to suit their lifestyle and taste.

The two storey Row House, a 79 square metre property, offers two full-width spacious bedrooms with high ceilings and large windows, as well as a full-width dining room and lounge with a kitchen and cloakroom which can be customised.

The two-and-a-half storey Row House is 103 square metres in size and offers a rooftop terrace on the third floor.

These three-bedroom homes also offer full-width sleeping and living areas, with an additional bathroom, plus a spacious dressing and storage area.

The largest three storey home is 116 square metres.

It can be configured as a four-bedroom home or a three bed with a top-floor master suite.

This type of home features full-width bedrooms and living areas, high ceilings, large windows and a choice of bathrooms and kitchen finishes.
