A GRAND Wirral property that belonged to the former CEO of Liverpool Football Club has been sold in a multi-million pound deal.

This impressive property on Noctorum Road was the home of Peter Moore, the British-American business executive who recently stepped down from his role with the Premier League Champions, and his American wife, Debbie.

The property dates back to 1928 and was originally built for John Holt who founded the Holt shipping company. Today Axholme provides nearly 12,000 sq ft of accommodation with state of the art leisure facilities.

Guy Bradshaw, Head of residential at UK Sotheby’s International Realty, said: "Undoubtedly it is one of the best houses on the Wirral and as such, it was no surprise to us that it generated plenty of interest.

"We were delighted to achieve a figure very close to the asking price of £2.35m."

As well as the main property which includes eight bedrooms, five bathrooms, eight reception rooms, gym, cinema and swimming pool, there is also a self-contained two bedroom annexe.

The beautiful grounds cover an area of 1.5 acres and include an all-weather tennis court, tree house, zip line and pond.

Peter Moore said: “We have loved our time at Axholme and felt particularly grateful to be living in such a wonderful home during these challenging months.

"We very much hope that the new owners will quickly settle in and enjoy all that the property has to offer, as well as life on the Wirral, a spectacular part of the world."
