21st February 2022

Liverpool City Region developer Urban Splash has completed the installation of 30 factory-built homes in Wirral Waters in just three months.

Urban Splash has completed 30 modular homes at Wirral Waters

It’s subsidiary, House by Urban Splash, has released new images of the 30 homes at East Float. Prices start from £210,000 for a two-storey Row House home, while the Town House homes are priced from £345,000.

In a partnership with site owner Peel L&P, House by Urban Splash will eventually deliver 350 modular homes. Elsewhere in Wirral Waters, Peel L&P is due to start work in the next few weeks on a £130m project to build 500 homes, 100 of which will be classed as affordable.

The 30 completed homes have been precision manufactured using Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) at the House by Urban Splash factory in the East Midlands, before being delivered to the Wirral by road. The homegrown concept has been designed by Liverpool-based architects shedkm.

Row House is available through the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. It is available in three sizes, a two-bedroom, two-storey home, a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half storey home, with the luxury of a roof terrace, and the largest, a four-bedroom, three-storey home.

Residents will also benefit from private terraces as well as spacious communal gardens for their use. Megan Howey manages sales on site at East Float. She said: “I’m here each day watching this incredible new neighbourhood come to life.

“With our first phase of homes in place it will soon be time to welcome our first residents too – early adopters who have secured a unique property in a vibrant part of the Wirral.

Drone footage also shows the three-storey Town House homes, offering open plan options, up to five bedrooms and home offices. There is a garden living option – a traditional layout with living spaces downstairs – or loft living – with bedrooms on the ground floor and open plan living areas upstairs.

Each of them boasts unrivalled views over the water, thanks to the neighbourhood’s location facing East Float Dock, a stone’s throw from the River Mersey. Megan added: “Our new residents will also benefit from a new park next to East Float, as well as all the fantastic new amenities planned for Wirral Waters.”
