As part of the Anfield Regeneration Project, Anfield Village is a model of refurbishment working within an area of small terraced houses to create new layouts for 1, 2 and 3 bedroom properties within a variety of ownerships, enhancing variety, choice and diversity in the housing offer.
Models for one 2 and 3 bedroom houses are able to be adapted into single properties. By combining properties to create a 2 into 1 house, the existing ‘2 up 2 down’ properties of 45m2 create a spacious 90m2 family house.
The 1 bedroom property has a small single storey extension with a roof light, and the 2 bedroom property has a 2 storey extension. Both have ground floor cloakrooms. The ‘2 into 1’ combines 2 properties to create a 3 bedroom home or a 2 bedroom house with a study. By demolishing the old rear extensions a new garden area and patio are created. This transforms the house, giving much needed amenity space. All the properties are insulated to modern standards with quality kitchens and bathrooms.
This diversity of housing offer ensures that local housing needs can be met and the neighbourhood sustainability does not rely on one archetype.
The fact that these models can fit into existing streets with varied ownership, has stimulated refurbishment of the private sector houses and created transformational change in Anfield.
