When they’re looking for somewhere new to live, one of the subjects high on any homebuyer’s curriculum is education – and that’s why families should find The Groves, in Allerton, is top of its class.
Being close to good schools will ensure any development is awarded an A* by families, and our prime homes boast proximity to several sought-after primary and secondary schools in this area of South Liverpool.
“Now is the time when all parents are thinking of schools as children get ready to go back to the classroom for the start of a new term,”says Simon Bennett, interim sales director for the North West. “But for families who are thinking of moving it’s even more of a priority – and a subject never far from their minds.
“Being near to a good school is one of the most important things for mums and dads - some will even consider a new home to get into the catchment area of a particularly good school. The Groves is in such a prime location because there is a great choice of high achieving and popular schools within the area.”
Among the primary schools nearby are Springwood Heath Primary School in Allerton; Hunts Cross County Infant School and Bishop Martin Church of England Primary School in Woolton.
Secondary schools include St Julie’s Catholic High School in Woolton, St Francis Xavier College in Woolton, St David High School in Childwall, and The Blue Coat Grammar School in Wavertree, among others.
“But, of course, all work and no play is far from ideal for anyone, especially young children and families,”adds Simon.“And that’s why The Groves is such a good location all round.We’ve done our homework and the development is close to many wonderful green spaces, which has become increasingly important as we come out of Covid and appreciate more than ever the benefits of the outdoors for our overall health and well-being.
“There are a number of parks locally, including the 35-acre Allerton Towers and the much larger, and beautiful, Calderstones Park, with its Japanese and English gardens, woodland and lake. And that’s not forgetting the green spaces at The Groves itself and its sister development Allerton Gardens. Almost half of the total site will remain as green space with informal footpaths, and meadow grassland.”
The Groves, in Woolton Road, offers a range of three and four-bedroom homes currently available from £503,995, sitting alongside Allerton Gardens’ selection of mostly larger executive homes.
All homes are from our award-winning Heritage Collection with traditional exteriors and contemporary, open plan interiors designed with today’s busy families in mind. Styles like the popular four-bedroom Cambridge detached home have a spacious kitchen, dining and family area, which will ultimately become the hub of the home, together with a separate lounge and the now-essential cloakroom and utility. Upstairs are good-sized bedrooms, the main with en-suite, and a luxurious family bathroom.
The development is just a few miles from Liverpool city centre and easily accessible by road, as well as having frequent bus and train services nearby.
