Located along the main promenade, with all the amenities right on your doorstep, this impressive Victorian house occupies a prime position within the traditional seaside town of Southport.
Built by a rich mill owner in the 19th century and one of the only houses along the promenade that remains a single dwelling, 28 The Promenade offers spacious and comfortable accommodation, perfect for large families or group of friends looking for a coastal escape. Stepping into the hall with its bespoke tiled flooring and leaded windows, you are reminded of the grandeur that this property enjoyed during its hey day. With its high ceilings and generously sized rooms, the light just pours in, making this house feel very bright and airy, just what you would expect from a coastal property.
Whether you are looking for an active holiday or a relaxing break, Southport has something to offer everyone. Ideally located between Liverpool and Blackpool along the Sefton Coast, Southport has over 22 miles of coastline and one of the oldest piers in the UK. The pier, along with the fun fair, Ferris wheel, Splash World indoor water park, bowling, cinema, theatre, laser quest and restaurants are all within a 10-minute walk, which means you can leave the car parked at the house and not have to worry about traffic or parking.

Just across the road is King’s Gardens, a 17-acre garden which has an adventure playground, tea rooms and lake. It hosts various events throughout the year including an outdoor cinema.
