Houses for sale in Liverpool L17 sell for around £234k on average, which is about £40k over Liverpool’s average. The added expense comes with benefits though, from excellent schools, lively community resources and the crowning glory of L17, the majestic Sefton Park.

Liverpool waterfront
L17 includes parts of Aigburth, St Michael’s Hamlet and Sefton Park. The park itself is in L17, making it a very popular destination to visit and live, with plenty of green space considering how central it is. The area also includes Lark Lane, which is a trendy, community-driven neighbourhood, with lots of independent shops and restaurants.
L17 is an incredibly desirable neighbourhood; the proximity to Sefton Park (a Grade 1 listed historic park) is a huge perk, particularly for those with children and/or dogs. Lark Lane (known just as “the lane” to locals - quickly write that down so you fit in when you get there!) is a hub of independent shops, restaurants and bars, making it very popular with the kind of parent we all aspire to be: well dressed children, brightly coloured buggy, drinking a lovely cappuccino from a reusable bamboo cup…you know the type. Aigburth is a little further out, but has the same kind of luxury appeal, with beautiful Grade II listed homes and an artsy social scene to boot. In fact the village was voted the best town in the UK to live in by The Times in 2019.
Yes, L17 is incredibly centrally located, considering how different it feels from the centre of town. Despite having a vibrant atmosphere, with great pubs and restaurants, it still feels like a tight-knit community. This is appealing to young parents, who enjoy meeting mates with kids around the lane or Sefton Park on the weekends.
L17 has a variety of types of houses. Aigburth is a fairly affluent area, and the house style matches this, with lots of Grade II listed properties with original features. Slightly further out you will find an array of semis and detached houses, perfect for those looking for a bit more floor space: like big families or those looking to retire in style. There are flats available around Lark Lane and Sefton which are popular with young people (though they’re not the most affordable), as well as Victorian terraces (some of which have been separated into flats).
Whereas some areas of Liverpool are still up and coming, you might say you have slightly missed the boat on affordable housing in L17. The area is pretty consistently desirable, and you’d do well to find a real steal on the market (though never say never). If you have a little more cash to spend, L17 is a wonderful place to live, or for buy-to-let houses and flats because the demand is high with all kinds of people from young professionals, to families, to students and retirees.
If you live in L17 you’ll be in the catchment area for lots of great schools. You’ll have lots of options, but there are a few that have been rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted, including: Auckland College (independent school), Lark Lane Pre-School, Sudley Infant School and Palmerston School (which specialises in special educational needs learning and has an unprecedentedly impressive student to teacher ratio of 6:1).
Yes, L17 is considered to be an expensive area, with many describing it as quite “posh”. Despite this, it’s not garish or loud, and some areas remain more affordable. It’s worth doing a bit of research and finding out what’s in your budget in or around L17. With the higher price tag certainly comes a lovely quality of life, with a choice of village or town, pastoral or urban, all within L17.
There is a high demand for properties in L17, and the location has so many positive attributes it’s unlikely its popularity will waver. However, L17 is already a developed and established part of Liverpool - you’re less likely to find a house that feels like an “undiscovered” gem, or in an area yet to be made popular. However, Liverpool is much cheaper than other UK cities and if you compare a very desirable area of Liverpool with London or even Manchester, you’ll feel like you’re getting a bargain.
