Property Description

Delavor And Its History

Surrounded by mature trees in a conservation area, Delavor is a fine example of the Victorian mansions built by industrialists and ship's captains along Noctorum ridge. It was constructed in the 1860's byJohn Laird of Cammell Laird Shipbuilders with Ruabon brick to be a substantial and durable building, with an original Della Robbia plaque on the SE garden facade. Delavor has spacious high-ceilinged rooms and numerous stained glass and leaded glass windows. Originally named Boscobel, the name was changed to Delavor in 1927. Once surrounded by grounds reaching down to Wethersfield Road, Delavor still retains two thirds of an acre of private grounds: two lawns, an arboretum, perennial borders, a shrubbery and space for vegetable gardening, all available for the enjoyment and use of Delavor's flat owners. Divided in 1969 into five flats, Delavor offers elegant, quiet and private accommodation of the highest standard to its owners.

Noctorum Lane is an adopted road and Delavor is within walking distance of Birkenhead School, bus stops and amenities
