FURNESS Building Society is making it easier to check how its current mortgage range measures up to the expectations of home-owners and new home buyers in Liverpool by encouraging them to “Ask Tom”. It has created a special web address – www.AskTom.net – which connects visitors straight to the mortgage options section of its website and provides easy access to all the latest deals. The new mortgage initiative is being promoted using the house-shaped character Tom the Mortgage Tailor, who is ready to measure up customers to provide a deal aiming to be a good fit for their needs. Ian Bell, general manager of marketing and development, explains: “We aim to make it easy for people to review their mortgage arrangements or simply to find out what Furness Building Society can offer by calling in to their local branch to speak to a mortgage adviser who can hopefully provide the right deal. “The Ask Tom character is a fun way of inviting customers to contact us.” The initiative is being supported with giant cut-out figures of Tom in all Furness branches and other marketing materials, including T-shirts for staff. The latest deals that can be found through Ask Tom include discount mortgages and fixed rate deals. The section also includes information on self-build mortgages, buy-to-let mortgages and the family mortgage that enables family members to help purchasers buy their home with a deposit of just 5%. For more information visit www.AskTom.net or call into Furness Building Society at 18 Castle Street, Liverpool.

WHITEGATES estate agents have been recognising the top achievers for last year across more than 60 franchisees. And Merseyside walked away with two new titles. The most improved lettings branch was Walton Vale. The judges said that the complexities of the market had seen a significant growth in the lettings market in the past three or four years. Across the industry many new lettings firms have emerged and some disappeared, so growing portfolios, offering a quality service, backed by the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) kite mark of quality and affording a competitive fee structure have made any growth a difficult job. However, Walton Vale has risen to the challenge and made huge strides forward, they said. Bebington was awarded the category of most improved estate agency branch for its work in what was a difficult year.

HOME

Kelly Hoppen shows Gabrielle Fagan how to create the ultimate living space by revealing her own decorating secrets

L

Debi Jones,

former radio and TV presenter Where was the family home you grew up in and what was it like? We lived in a five-bed semi in Oxford Avenue, Bootle until I was 10. I don't remember much about it other than it had a long garden and the top floor was creepy! My happiest and clearest memories are the house we moved to in Altcar. It was the old vicarage for St.Michael's And All Angels Church, and was every child's dream, surrounded by fields and farms. What is your clearest memory of the house? The wonderful big range cooker in the kitchen where mum used to cook good old fashioned meals. We also had a big stone floored room at the back of the kitchen which we kept the dogs in, and left the outside door open so they could come in and out. The gardens were fantastic - full of snowdrops in the spring, then daffodils, and an apple orchard either side. Where was the first house you bought yourself and what did it cost? I've only bought one house, and it's the one I still live in. I bought it from my parents about 25 years ago. We had a tenant in the top floor, as it's a big old Edwardian property, so I got it a bit cheaper than I should have. I paid about £60,000, but have spent an awful lot on it over the years. My parents moved to the garden flat where I had lived with Steve, my husband. What made you want to buy it? It was my family home and I'm a real home bird so it seemed the natural thing to do. I knew it had a lot of potential. I bought it only about six months before I met Steve. What are the important things you look for when buying a house? Ideally I would look for a house which gets the most sun, and space is also very important, I've always lived in large, rambling houses. I love gardens. Are you a DIY trier or do you leave it to the experts? I prefer to work to earn the money to pay the experts. It can be very expensive though, which is why I'm lucky Steve can turn his hand to virtually any DIY, apart from making the bed! What is the one thing you love most about your current home? We can all live together, but still have our own space, and the ornate ceilings and fireplaces are beautiful. by JANET TANSLEY

EADING designers, especially those with celebrity clients who are also friends, usually guard their privacy with a zeal. But Kelly Hoppen has chosen to use her own home to demonstrate those highly successful techniques that have won her a host of famous fans, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law and Elton John. Her luxurious sanctuary is a homage to her “East meets West” style with its uncluttered, opulent rooms; a distinctive use of balance and symmetry, and trademark colour palette of neutrals, including her signature taupe shade. “Each of the homes I have designed and lived in myself has been an on-going exercise – an experiment if you like – where I have tried to understand how we see things, what gives us contentment and what we are really trying to achieve,” she explains. Walls are finished in light-reflecting white waxed plaster and there are ebony-stained floorboards and glossy lacquered surfaces. “I have displayed more objects and used more furniture, texture and subtle contrast here than in any of my previous homes,” she says. “It’s a marked shift towards a feminine, luxurious, organic glamour in which I feel very much at ease.” The sophisticated, tranquil setting is the result of a painstaking renovation of her period home in London, during which she ensured the interior was tailored to her lifestyle. “Choosing your home’s style is a similar process to choosing a piece of couture clothing – it should fit you like a glove,” she says of the setting, which features in her new book Kelly Hoppen Ideas. Kelly, who is as discreet about her clients as she is about her private life, says simply: “I think nowadays, whoever we are, we all want a nurturing retreat that feels safe, comfortable and easy to live in.” Her own homes, she says, have always been characterised by an eclectic element – mixing vintage, contemporary, ultra-modern and antique styles. But whatever a person’s taste, she insists, the guiding principle must be that “your home works for you and how you live, and in essence represents who you are”. Follow her room by room guide to creating a designer home.

STEPS TO SUCCESS: Oak stairs are softened by a silk taupe carpet runner. Walls are in Kelly’s favourite finish, white waxed plaster created by Polidori Barbera LOUNGING STYLE

Living rooms can be integrated into an open-plan design or be just as effective as a separate space, she says. Kelly’s spacious first-floor living room has a fireplace as its focal point and a chimney breast covered in a panel of black glass within which a TV is set. “Always think about where the main seating will be, where the television will be be, to help you decide the layout,” she advises. “A monochromatic palette fulfils my aim to make the room seem like a stunning black and white picture.” Flooring, she advises, must be timeless –

not a fashion statement – as it will be in place for a long time and expensive to change. KELLY LOVES: Sheer curtains to filter natural light, black and white framed photographic prints and the impact of repetition in pieces of furniture and objects, such as a group of three tables or a pair of vases.

ENTRANCE POWER

Hallways are often, wrongly, neglected areas, says Kelly, and can flag up personal style. In her hallway, recessed strip

lights on either side of the treads and risers of the staircase make it appear to “float”. The lighting also has the effect of appearing to widen the space. “Halls should impress as well as being practical. Whenever I come home, I look forward to experiencing the sense of wellbeing that my hall engenders,” says Kelly. KELLY LOVES: Full-height doors that increase a sense of space, as well as bespoke door handles and flooring and furnishings that echo the overall feel of the rest of the home.

ENTERTAINING ZONE

Kitchens are now as popular as dining and entertaining areas, and Kelly has devised her own streamlined recipe for the space. In her home this area extends over the majority of the ground floor and incorporates a dining area leading on to the garden. “It’s definitely the theatre at the heart of my home,” she says. “I have a fireplace up on the wall like a painting, which is a focal point, and cosy in winter. “As I’m always hosting dinners

... to home improvement

How to... Make the most of the sun SOME home-improvement tasks are best confined to the garden. ● Spray painting: Cover the ground and spray away to your heart’s content without having to mask off the things you’re not painting, as you would indoors. You should still wear a respirator mask, though. Just don’t spray when it’s windy because the paint will go everywhere. ● Sanding: There’s nothing worse than a layer of sanding dust covering your home. Even if you’re only sanding in one room, the dust has a habit of spreading everywhere, so the garden is definitely the best place to use sandpaper and electric sanders, if what you’re sanding is portable. ● Planing: Altering something like a door can involve a lot more planing than you imagine, but take it outside and you don’t have to worry about the mess. The same goes for sawing. ● Paint stripping: Chemical paint stripper is pretty unpleasant stuff and gives off strong fumes, so using it outside is easier and safer. Not all paint strippers contain chemicals, of course, but all cause paint to blister, creating quite a mess when you scrape it off. If you’d rather use a heat gun, do it outside and you won’t have to worry about scorching your furniture or floor. ● Tile cutting: The best thing to use for cutting wall and floor tiles is a diamond wheel, either on a tool such as an angle grinder or a flatbed tile cutter, where the wheel’s cooled with water to stop it from overheating. Both are best used in the garden, especially the latter because the water goes everywhere and you’ll get a bit of a shock if you use it indoors.

Our first home is at the hub of our lives

L

OVEBIRDS Joshua Robinson and Lucy Ashwell had given up hope of building their own nest. Despite good jobs with decent salaries, the cost of a house was out of their reach and dreams of their own space seemed just that – a dream. That is until the governmentbacked scheme HomesHub played property Cupid. HomesHub helps working people in Merseyside and Cheshire who have been priced out of the property market. And within just one hour of hearing about a property for sale via a loan-to-buy scheme, Lisa and Joshua decided to leave Joshua’s parents’ home where they had been living and take the plunge and buy a home together. “We met at Liverpool University and when the course finished we wanted to be together but didn’t want to waste money renting,” explains Joshua, 25. “We moved in with my parents, which was a bit cramped as there were five people in three bedrooms. We wanted our own place but couldn’t afford it, and there didn’t seem any way we would ever be able to.” However, he goes on: “When a friend told me about HomesHub and the help you get we went on their website and a property caught our eye. “By the time we got down to the office, the property had gone, which was really disappointing. But, there were two left on another development. We didn’t have time to think, it was ideal for us and we decided we needed to do it.”

by JANET TANSLEY The couple laugh about the day they decided to take the home-buying bull by the horns.. “We took one hour to make the decision,” says Joshua. “The people at HomesHub were amazed and kept asking if we were sure we wanted to do it. But we did, there was no other way.” Through HomesHub, which is part of the Plus Dane Group, a housing association with responsibility for more than 15,000 homes in Merseyside and Cheshire, the couple were able to find an affordable loan for 30% of the property’s value. This enabled them to get a 70% mortgage and the keys to the door of a new three-bedroom house at the Williamson Place development in Kensington. “We love our new home,” says Lisa, 27, an IT support worker. “It’s just 10 minutes from my work, 25 minutes from Joshua’s parents and close to shops and the city centre. There’s a big kitchen, lovely big garden ... it’s perfect.” She adds: “The whole process of buying the house was really straightforward and the HomesHub people were brilliant at answering any questions we had. “And because we paid our deposit with an affordable loan, the money we had saved up for a deposit we used to buy the furniture.” Joshua, a teacher who works on their allotment in his spare time so the couple can be as self-sufficient as possible, says: “HomesHub makes owning a home affordable

and I feel that buying a home is a much better idea in the long run. A lot of our friends live round here and are all renting, which we feel is throwing money away. “The next step for us will be to get married, but at the moment we can’t afford it. At least, though, we were given the opportunity to move with the scheme, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without help.”

SPRING is in the air and Jones Homes is keen to help Merseyside people buy property with a range of incentives. Area sales manager Hilary Dean says: “Buying a new home is the biggest financial commitment most people make, so we strongly advise home seekers to have a good look round before making the big decision.” Jones Homes’s portfolio includes a range of contemporary apartments, mews-style homes for

downsizers or first time buyers, three-storey town houses and detached family properties. Jones says all the homes carry its traditional hallmark of luxury accommodation coupled with high standards of construction, design and specification. And Hilary believes now is the right time to move with many ongoing offers. There are two initiatives designed to help people make that move to a new Jones home.

For those with a house to sell, Jones Homes’s Easymove, scheme is available. It offers them the chance to reserve a Jones home and receive practical help to give them a better chance of selling their existing property. And for first time buyers there’s Jones HomeBuy, a new scheme which is still available on a limited number of plots and developments. The scheme enables prospective purchasers to buy a property for just 85% of the full price – Jones provides an

equity loan for the remaining 15%. It’s 100% owned by the purchaser and only a 5% deposit is required. Depending on the site this could mean a 2-bedroom mews home for only £105,188! Most show homes and sales centres are open from 10am to 5pm during the week and from 11am to 5pm at weekends.

Build an oasis

The calm and cooling presence of water can be achieved in almost any garden. Hannah Stephenson offers tips on siting a water feature

D

IPPING my toes in the river near my home during the spell of warm weather made me reflect on how therapeutic water is in so many ways, whether just to cool off or to appreciate in its movement and sound. You can transfer some of those therapeutic qualities to your garden by creating a water feature, whether it’s as simple as a wooden barrel with a waterproof lining and a single plant in it, or as elaborate as a large pond which will not only provide a focal point but will become a magnet to wildlife. Whatever type of water feature you decide to install, positioning it will be important in all but the smallest of features. Ponds should be situated on an open site, with at least six hours of sunlight a day, away from trees where you are less likely to come across tree roots when digging the hole, and near a water source for easy topping up in summer. Try to avoid placing the pond where there’s a naturally high water table, as the pressure from below is likely to lift your liner, forcing the pond water out. You can work out your natural water level by digging a hole until you see water, but you’re better off doing this in winter as the water table will be higher then. Leaves can be a terrible hindrance to ponds, so don’t place them under deciduous trees where the leaves will fall in autumn.

GARDEN OASIS: An informal pond provides a perfect place to relax beside the calming water Also be aware that placing a large pond in full sun is going to encourage a build-up of algae. If there’s no other site, you’ll have to plant some large shrubs around it to cast shade over the water for some of the day. Next you need to select your liner. It can be either concrete, butyl or a pre-fabricated shell made of fibreglass or plastic. Concrete may be the most long-lasting but it is also likely to be the most expensive. The cheapest option is probably a flexible butyl liner which can be

Best Of The Bunch Alpine phlox IF YOU’VE graced your local garden centre recently you’ll have no doubt seen the plethora of alpine phlox available which will brighten up rock gardens, cascading over walls, in a range of colours from white to pink and purple, with or without stripes. If kept happy, they will go on for a few years before they need replacing, spreading their colour happily over rocks and stones. Go for the ground-hugging evergreen P. subulata “Amazing Grace”, which flowers from late spring to early summer, producing pale pink flowers with deep pink eyes. Grow it in well-drained but fertile soil in shingle beds, rock gardens and containers.

used for any shape of pond and is particularly effective for informal ponds. Dig the hole slightly larger than the desired size of the pool, creating shelves as you go. Remove sharp stones and roots and cover the base of the hole with a thick layer of soft sand. Alternatively, cover the base with old carpet or a protective underlay (available from garden centres and aquatic specialists) to protect the liner from sharp objects. Measure the maximum width, depth and length of your pond. The

liner width should equal the pond’s width plus twice the depth, plus 30cm (1ft) overhang. Check that the surface is level using a spirit level placed on a plank of wood the length of the pond. Lay the liner loosely over the hole and lightly anchored at the sides with weights such as bricks. Start filling the pool slowly, allowing the weight of water to gently drag the liner into the shape of the pool. Fill the pond to within 5cm (2in) of the rim, then cut off the excess liner, leaving around 15cm (6in)

overlap, which can be anchored with paving stones, turf or planting. If you are using slabs, position them overlapping the pool by around 5cm (2in) which will create shade for the liner, protecting it from sunlight which can cause it to deteriorate. Many gardeners go for plastic or fibreglass shells, which often have pre-formed shelves for aquatic plants. Holes for these will need to be dug carefully to almost exactly the same shape and size as the shell, or else when the pool is filled, the weight will put uneven pressure

Things to do this week ● Take cuttings from summer-flowering clematis. ● Plant dormant dahlia tubers and young plants. ● Remove faded flowers from daffodils, hyacinths and tulips. ● Stake border plants as they grow. ● Feed seedlings which are growing poorly or have yellowing foliage. ● Move overwintered hardy annuals to their final flowering position. ● Sow late-flowering annuals directly into their flowering position. ● Continue to harden off summer bedding plants. ● Prune winter-flowering heathers. ● Train greenhouse cucumbers and tomatoes. Remove male flowers from cucumbers. ● Pinch out the tips of all side shoots growing from main rod framework of outdoor grapevines. ● Thin gooseberry fruits, using the crop for cooking. ● Remove suckers on fruit trees. ● Cut lawns but keep the mower blades high. ● Continue with evening slug patrols, especially after rain. ● Keep weeding regularly.

To keep the water moving, which helps prevent it going stagnant, and create a soothing sound, you’ll need a pump. Small pumps are available with fountain or waterfall kits, but all electric pumps should be used with a residual-current device (RCD) device. Consider access to your mains and always use a qualified electrician.

Grow Your Own Dill IF FISH is your bag you shouldn’t be without dill in your herb garden as it’s the perfect accompaniment to salmon and other fish. Sow it in tubs or window boxes outside in late spring and if you sow successionally through to June, you will be harvesting a fresh crop of leaves into August. It does best in full sun and well-drained soil. Thin out overcrowded seedlings to 10-15cm (4-6in) apart and water sparingly in dry spells, as they don’t like wet conditions. The leaves can be harvested as a cut-and-come-again crop as soon as they are large enough. Sow a new batch when you’re about half way through the first harvest. If you want the seeds, which can also be eaten, leave the crops to grow without taking many leaves off and you should have them by the end of the summer. Good varieties include “Tetra”, which is a busy variety, perfect for leaves, while “Mammoth” is grown for seeds.

Remove every leaf from every plant each week from March until October, which will result in the root systems becoming weak and dying away.

3

Use systemic weedkiller such as glyphosate when they have developed a lot of foliage; paint leaves carefully on a still, dry day and wait a few days until the plant has ingested the formula.

FFLUENT, sought-after and with no shortage of greenery, it’s little surprise that Childwall is so popular with home buyers. Just six miles from Liverpool city centre, Childwall is in a great suburban location. Not only is it easy to travel to and from the centre, but Childwall is situated not far from the start of the M62, offering easy access to Manchester, Preston and the rest of the UK. Childwall is bordered by the areas of Wavertree, Broadgreen, Gateacre, Belle Vale, Bowring Park and Mossley Hill. Public transport links are good, with many bus routes through the area and the nearby Broadgreen railway station, while there are a number of separate shopping areas, places to eat, pubs and

churches too. Being in South Liverpool you can be sure there’s a park or two nearby to enjoy. While Childwall does not have its own large park area, Court Hay Park is close by, as are parks in Calderstones and Wavertree, with Sefton Park just a little further afield. The area itself offers pleasant woodland walks along the old Liverpool Loop Line that takes in Childwall Woods, Childwall Fields and Score Lane Park. In terms of housing, the Childwall area, which has an L16 postcode, comprises mainly detached and semidetached properties. Many of these are of quite a substantial size, and house prices reflect that this is an upmarket area. Recent property sales in Childwall include a property

The Childwall Abbey pub, left, and All Saints Church

in Stand Park Road which sold for £208,000 and one in Eldred Road which cost £273,250. Both were semidetached houses. Large flats and maisonettes have been selling around the £150,000 mark. As with so many areas of Liverpool, Childwall has a long-established history, being referenced in the Domesday Book of 1086. Its name is said to have Norse roots, and means the field of the well or the spring. There are some interesting historic sites in the area, from the former Childwall Hall to the wilderness area around Childwall Abbey, now a conservation area. The Childwall Abbey Hotel and public house is well worth a visit, for history buffs and ale lovers alike. Thought to be a former chapel, perhaps dating as far back as 1484, the pub has long been a favourite haunt of actors staying in the city, including the novelist and playwright J M Barrie, who wrote Peter Pan. Oh, and it’s said to be haunted by some actual spectres, too. All Saints Church, whose earliest surviving section dates back to the 14th century, is another fascinating part of Childwall’s living history. It is a Grade I listed building and is the only surviving medieval church in the borough of Liverpool. As for golf enthusiasts, the nearby Childwall Golf Club will offer a testing 18 holes over its 6,470-yard parkland course, which ranks alongside the best in the area.

of the Week

Boost for sales of £1m properties THE number of homes sold for more than £1m increased at its fastest rate for four years during 2010 as the top end of the property market bounced back, research indicates. A total of 7,185 properties changed hands for a sevenfigure sum during the year, 54% more than in 2009 and the biggest annual increase since 2006, according to Lloyds TSB. But despite the increase, sales of homes for £1m or more are still 13% below the level they reached in 2007, before the financial crisis struck. The group estimates there are now around 184,000 homes in Great Britain that are worth at least £1m. The resurgence in sales of top end homes has significantly outstripped the rise in transactions for properties of all values, which edged ahead by just 6% during 2010, while there was a 1% fall in the number of homes worth £250,000 or less that changed hands. However, despite the buoyancy at the top end of the market, these sales still accounted for just 1% of total transactions during the year. Unsurprisingly, the majority of £1m sales were in London and the South East, with these regions accounting for 83% of those transactions in Great Britain last year. Suren Thiru, Lloyds TSB housing economist, says: “The number of properties sold for over £1m has risen substantially over the past year, reflecting the strength of the very top end of the housing market. “A small number of areas in London still account for the lion’s share of all £1m sales, with housing market activity in such locations continuing to benefit from strong demand from wealthy international buyers and limited supply. “In contrast, the level of activity across the wider housing market remains subdued.”

ISITORS to a McCarthy and Stone retirement development in Chester could be in for more than a teatime treat if they pop into Forest Court, on Union Street, for a quick cuppa. From 2pm on the last Thursday of May, the UK’s largest retirement specialist will open the doors to its Forest Court development and extend an open invitation to the residents of Chester for a special afternoon tea. However, between now and the end of May, a nice brew is not the only thing on Forest Court’s menu. After soaking up the fantastic atmosphere of the residents’ lounge while enjoying a cup of tea and slice of cake, all visitors who attend the event will be offered the opportunity to enter a free prize draw, with the chance of winning a plush afternoon tea worth over £40 at the historic Chester Grosvenor Hotel. The winner of the prize draw will be selected at random during the afternoon tea on Thursday, May 26. For those who can’t attend the afternoon tea event, the competition will still be open to visitors of the development’s delightful show complex before 3pm on the day of the draw. Ideally situated less than 150 yards from one of Chester's main
