A brand-new type of house is coming to Merseyside – as house by Urban Splash expands its modular portfolio with Row House
As it embarks upon the development of East Float at Wirral Waters, the modern housebuilder, House by Urban Splash, has introduced a new typology to its portfolio of modular housing – and it’s coming first to Merseyside.
Known as Row House, it has been designed by Liverpool-based architects shedkm. The red-clad homes are a colourful and bold type of house, with buyers at Wirral Waters able to choose from a range of options to make their home their own – including the option of a rooftop terrace.
House by Urban Splash is creating the East Float neighbourhood at Wirral Waters in joint venture partnership with Peel L&P, creating around 350 homes using modern methods of construction including these first ever Row House homes. Guy Ackernley, residential sales director at House by Urban Splash, explained: “We are delighted to release another bold and innovative new housing typology – and are proud to be bringing it first to Merseyside.
“Urban Splash was founded in Merseyside, creating hundreds of thousands of sq ft of workspace as well as city centre apartments in Liverpool; 28 years on we’re immensely proud to be back in the region, introducing a totally new concept – just as we did back in the 1990s.”
Row House represents a modern mews house, or ‘Urban Cottage’, bringing a more compact terrace form to the portfolio at an affordable price range, meaning more people can get on the housing ladder with a home customised to meet their individual lifestyle needs. Each home is characterised by a central, oversized, floor-to-ceiling window, which firmly delivers on the House by Urban Splash promise, to deliver design-led, bright open spaces for living.
Guy continued: “This product challenges design convention and something we believe will redefine the concept of new build living – we’re creating a series of homes which combine state-of-the-art materials and construction with a lifestyle enhancing design.”
