Residential development facility sourced for three executive homes in Heswall

09 April 2024

Peritus is pleased to announce the completion of a new development facility with Shawbrook Bank.

Willowbank Gardens is an exclusive development of three detached five bedroom properties in the village of Heswall, located on the western side of the Wirral overlooking the Dee Estuary. Heswall is located 13 miles from the Roman city of Chester and about 25 minutes’ drive from the city of Liverpool.  Heswall is known as a hot spot for shoppers and diners and enjoys a strong coffee shop culture during the day becoming a restaurant destination in the evening with the likes of Gusto, Burnt Truffle and 107 Dining Room offering excellent cuisine.

There are many fine golf clubs in the immediate vicinity including Heswall Golf Club, Caldy Golf Club and of course, the Open course, Royal Liverpool, located nearby in Hoylake. The area also has good schools including the two excellent grammar schools, West Kirby and Calday Grange. 

The site itself benefits from stunning views over Heswall Dales, a 72 acre area of lowland heath designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Local Nature Reserve. The panoramic views stretch across the Dales and the Dee Estuary all the way to the Clwydian Hills.

The three houses will be in excess of 4,000 sq ft each and will be built to a very high specification including the likes of underfloor heating, CCTV system, Travertine tiles to bathrooms and the kitchen which will benefit from high quality appliances. The gardens will slope down to the Dales so will be invisible from the road. Density will be low and the private driveway to the three new houses will be gated.

The clients, who had formed a joint venture with local experienced housebuilder, approached Peritus to finance the development of the three luxury homes within their substantial garden. Peritus secured a new development facility with Shawbrook Bank with a 21 month term at highly competitive pricing. The facility has been instigated and completed during the cost of living crisis however, Shawbrook Bank is confident in the contractor's ability to deliver quality homes much sought after in the location.
