Forty/8 sat down with the Sales Consultants at Liverpool's Orleans House to find out why it's such a popular and affordable choice for those looking to buy in the city.

What in particular drew you to Orleans House?

Claire: The building itself is completely different to anything else on the market at the moment, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to be involved in such a fantastic project.

What’s so special about Orleans House?

Margie: The location is pretty much perfect for anyone living and working in the city. The development is just moments away from LiverpoolONE, as well as all the bars and restaurants.  Orleans House really is in the heart of the action. Having said that, it’s nestled on a quiet street which means there’s no contending with street noise!

Sandra: For me it has to be the specification and build quality; the apartments have been built to the highest of standards and it’s noticeable from the moment you arrive at Orleans House. Because of the age of the building, the apartments benefit from high ceilings and large windows. Light just floods the apartments and they feel so spacious and luxurious.

Why would Orleans House appeal to buyers looking to live in the city? 

Claire: There’s a real sense of community here which can’t be underestimated, I think that comes from the block being mostly owner occupied and of course Kevin, our fabulous concierge! Being less than a three minute walk from Moorfields Station is also a big plus. 

Margie: Liverpool has a brilliant social scene too! Shops, top restaurants, bars and great theatres; it’s no surprise that more and more young professionals are moving here. It’s not your typical city vibe here in Liverpool, people are so friendly and with a relatively low cost of living, it’s an ideal place to lay down roots.

What’s your favourite thing about Orleans House? 

Claire: Orleans House was a warehouse for Liverpool’s Cotton Exchange, the building is part of the city’s history and it’s full of character! It’s not your typical “cookie cutter” new build development, these apartments are truly unique and the luxury specification is the cherry on top! 

Margie: I couldn’t agree more, it’s not every day you have the opportunity to live in a Grade II* listed building but with a modern finish. From the moment you walk through the grand timber front doors and stand on the beautifully restored marble, you just know you’re in a special place. 

Is Orleans House available under the Help to Buy: Equity Loan Scheme?

Sandra: Yes, we now only have a small selection of two-bedroom apartments available with prices starting from £177,000. To purchase this apartment using a 20% equity loan of £35,400, you would need a 5% deposit of £8,850 and a mortgage of £132,750.

 Claire: Becoming a home-owner isn’t as much of a pipe dream as people think, thanks to Help to Buy!
