Merseyside house once owned by Ethel Austin, the high street fashion mogul, is up for sale.

A ‘stunning’ mansion that was previously the home of a powerful Merseyside woman has come on the market.

Purplebricks has a two bedroom mews property on Noctorum Lane in Oxton advertised for slightly under £399,950.

The home has an intriguing history in addition to being a house with a lot of character, thanks to its stunning decor and the preservation of its original characteristics.

Ethel Austin, who created the famous English apparel business of the same name, once owned Inscot.

The clothing company was bought from the founding family two decades ago, although it had roughly 300 locations across the country at its heyday.

Ethel is said to have started the business from her front room in her Merseyside terrace house, and when the company evolved, it moved to Knowsley.

Ethel moved from Liverpool to the Wirral, where she settled in Oxton, as a result of her success.

The designer spent more than 20 years at the property, which was originally known as Inscot Manor.

The mansion was reputedly one of the most expensive in Wirral at the time of her relocation.

Despite being only a two-bedroom home, the mews property has lots of space to offer, according to images on Purplebricks.

Guests are greeted by a ‘breathtaking wide’ hallway with a feature spiral clothed in red carpets and dark wood details on the ground floor.

The hallway is large enough to serve as a study, with additional storage beneath the stairs and in a cloakroom.

The original high ceilings and huge bay windows, which are typical of period homes, provide a bright kitchen and dining space.

The kitchen has integrated equipment and a center island that serves as additional seating in addition to the dining space.

A large lounge takes up the majority of the ground floor and boasts plenty of potential, thanks to it’s wide open space.

The second floor has two double bedrooms. The main bedroom has a walk in wardrobe.

Both share a family bathroom that have been recently renovated and fitted with a wet room and underfloor. Summary ends.
