Luxury detached homes development unveiled for Merseyside suburb

Plans for the Formby site

A £4.7m housing scheme in the northern Liverpool suburb of Formby has been revealed by Liverpool-based housebuilder, Hassett Homes.

The Marram, at Wheatstone Road, is the firm’s maiden development in the popular neighbourhood and will see eight large detached homes developed.

The site’s drainage and roads are now complete, with work under way building the properties, says managing director Jamie Blennerhassett.

“The market for well designed and well built executive homes will always remain strong in a suburb like Formby,” he said.

“Our level of pre-sale enquiries is our highest yet and I’m delighted with our progress on site.”

The development stands above the River Alt, with views south west towards Liverpool Bay and the Welsh mountains. RAL is the architect, with Hassett’s Chloe Officer the scheme’s interior design manager.

Mr Blennerhassett added: “These are striking contemporary homes with bathroom fixtures by Vado and Durvait and high-end kitchen fittings by Roundel.”

Additional smart features and high end specifications such as underfloor heating and large picture windows complete the offer.

“Our customers demand quality and attention to detail so our focus is always on the standard of build and choosing the right fixtures and fittings. We like to focus on convenience, too, such as providing fitted carpets and high quality hard flooring so that customers can move their belongings straight in and begin enjoying their lovely new home immediately.”

The news follows confirmation that all nine homes at Hassett Homes’ development on Long Lane, in Aughton, sold within 30 days of release. The project comprised six semi-detached and three detached properties, designed around a private courtyard and sold to a mix of families and retirees.
