CGI of East Float homes

Modern housebuilder, House by Urban Splash, will launch the first homes for sale this month at East Float, a new quarter within the Northbank neighbourhood at Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters in Merseyside.

A launch event on July 10, will give customers their first opportunity to take a tour of the East Float quarter, which House by Urban Splash is creating in a joint venture partnership with Peel L&P.

Customers will also be able to tour the new sales pavilion – an iconic structure featuring immersive brand experiences, including screens on which customers can explore various layouts of the homes.

All of the new homes on sale are being created in the House by Urban Splash factory in the East Midlands, before being delivered to East Float over the summer. Among them are the three-storey Town House homes, and the Row House, a new property type coming first to Merseyside.

Both house types have been designed by Liverpool-based architects shedkm and prices start from £210,000 for a two-storey Row House home, while the Town House homes are priced from £345,000.

Guy Ackernley is residential director at House by Urban Splash, and said: “After lots of hard work on site and in our factory, we are now able to welcome customers to East Float for the first time. This is the most exciting new neighbourhood in Merseyside, if not the North West, and we look forward to sharing our vision – and Peel L&P’s broader vision for Wirral Waters – at our launch event.”

In a bid to accommodate the changing ways we live, each of the homes on sale offer customers choice, with a range of layouts available.

The Town House homes offer open plan options, up to five bedrooms and home offices. There is a garden living option – a traditional layout with living spaces downstairs – or loft living – with bedrooms on the ground floor and open plan living areas upstairs. Each of them boasts unrivalled views over the Mersey thanks to the neighbourhood’s location right on the water’s edge.

The brightly coloured red Row House homes are a tribute to the Victorian mews and will be available in three sizes. There is a two-storey option, a two-and-a-half storey which offers residents a roof terrace, and the largest three-storey home. Residents will also benefit from private terraces as well as spacious communal gardens for their use.

Guy added: “We’re also immensely proud to be launching our first ever Row House homes in Merseryside. Urban Splash was established in Liverpool and this is another nod to our company’s relationship with the area.

“With Row House, Town House and yet to be released phases, we are creating homes that are designed for work, rest and play, as well as Peel L&P’s efforts across the wider site to create arts venues, shops and cafes that will really anchor life here. We can’t wait to welcome our first guests to East Float at our launch.”

House by Urban Splash is creating East Float at Wirral Waters in joint venture partnership with Peel L&P. Together they are creating a total 350 homes using modern methods of construction.
