Sefton Vine House on the market

The 15-storey apartment block is located off Kepler Street in Seaforth in Bootle, next to Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School.

Matthews & Goodman is the agent for Vine House, which is owned by Sefton Council. The agent is inviting offers for a 150-year leasehold at £3,000 a year.

Sefton Council has put the building on the market to enable its redevelopment for residential use.

The council will enter a pre-emption agreement with the buyer in relation to the future purchase of the property’s freehold following redevelopment.

Vine House features 58 apartments made up of 15 one-, 29 two-, and 14 three-bedroom flats.

Also included in the 0.6-acre site is a car park and a flat grassed area, which surrounds the adjacent school.

Constructed in the 1960s, the building is currently vacant.

Properly refurbed and with good concierge and security this can be a sound investment. Fill it with tenants who choose to live here and there shouldn’t be too many problems.

Pull it down.

By Stephen Davis

Of course the dumb option is to pull it down and put 8 houses on the site, but the more visionary scenario is to refurbish to a good standard, and provide 58 homes for rent to people wanting to live there, and I’d bet there’s plenty.

My grandparents lived here in the sixtys and seventys,great views across the river mersey .some other blocks have been pulled down not that they did that to easily,(you might remember they where built so well that even the demolition team after blowing them up had to go to through many more steps to bring them down ).some have been greatly improved.
Personally I would love a penthouse on top of there
